Local Churches Feed Both Stomach And Soul
Turkey. Gravy. Sweet Potatoes. Togetherness.Family. Stuffing. STUFFED. Words one usuallyassociates Thanksgiving and the HolidaySeason. But some speak a different vocabulary.Words like hunger, emptiness, service, andselfless. Ramseur
ʼ
s Ministerial Associationbrings together a collection of local churcheswho put aside their denominations and worktogether as one body of Christ - reaching outand feeding the hungry at Thanksgiving.
All throughout the year, the associationruns the Ramseur Food Pantry, located at thetown municipal building. The pastors of theassociation noticed that the pantry
ʼ
s supplieswere getting low - so on October 26th they heldthe first annual food pantry fundraising golftournament at Sandy Creek Country Club. “Wedecided to just go ahead and make it happenthis year and hopefully it will continue to growbigger and bigger with each year” Park
ʼ
sCrossroads Pastor Randy Kelley told theReview recently, “it all came together in acouple weeks and I think it went great.” Thetournament, despite not having any businesssponsorships, raised over $800 through the 40players that took part. “Bob Wood at SandyCreek was so great to work with, I
ʼ
m lookingforward to doing it again there next year.”
Along with the tournament, these localchurches are planning to feed the hungry onNovember 20th with their free communityThanksgiving meal. The event is open toanyone to needs a hot meal, but they do askthat you get tickets in advance through thepantry or local churches so that they are able toplan accurately for the amount of people thatmay come seeking sustenance. The point ofthe meal is not only to feed the hungry, but toremind them that they aren
ʼ
t alone and they canstill have a family meal for Thanksgiving.
This year
ʼ
s meal will be at JordanMemorial UMC in downtown Ramseur from 4 -6pm. Having it at a church allows theassociation to not only share a meal, but the“bread of life” and “living water” that comes witha relationship with God. (a part of the outreachthat wasn
ʼ
t allowed while using school facilities)The cooking team will be headed up by MarkMuir of First Christian Church and churchmembers all over town will be there - ready tobe God
ʼ
s hands and feet to the communityaround them. If you would like to volunteer towork the meal or donate money and food to thepantry, please call Pastor Kelley at 963-1058. Ifyou would like to get a plate at the meal, stopby one of the local churches or the food pantrydowntown. Finally, while you

should anyone be thankful for you?

DATE:
For those who were able to attend the October 19 meeting, we heardpresentations from Bonnie Renfro (Randolph County EDC) andGinger Booker (Piedmont Triad Council of Governments) regardingstrategic planning within their respective organizations. Amongseveral first time participants was Representative Pat Hurley, and wewere pleased to have her join us to learn more about Ramseur’s NCSTEP program.At (the last) meeting we announced two projects. The first is a neweffort to support our local businesses and service organizationsthrough the creation of a
Ramseur-area business directory
. The feeis minimal, and we hope that the majority of area businesses,churches, civic organizations, etc. will participate. I have attached aninformational flyer in the event you haven’t had a chance to pick oneup. Please pass this along to anyone in the area who may beinterested.
The deadline for submission is November 30
.The second project which was discussed is the ongoing
Deep River Rail-Trail
planning project. A community meeting will be held onThursday evening of this week so that we can both provideinformation and receive input.Since several have asked about progress on the
mini-project
whichwas discussed in the September meeting, here’s a quick update. Asubcommittee was appointed by the Leadership Team to pursueinstallation of some new “Welcome to Ramseur” signage on Hwy 64.When the subcommittee met, it quickly became apparent thatconsideration should be given to the development of a new Ramseur logo to be incorporated into new signage. After discussion with Omiand other Rural Center staff, we have put this rebranding and signageproject on hold until we are able to gain additional perspective.Although we were a bit disappointed with being reigned in, I’mactually encouraged that the Rural Center is slowing us down rather than trying to prod us toward action. We will pick up this project againin the upcoming months.Finally, there (was) opportunity to attend the 2010
Rural PartnersForum
on November 4 and 5. Entitled “Ramping Up the RuralEconomy,” the two-day workshop promise(d) to provide five strategiesto combat recession, grow jobs, and create wealth in ruralcommunities. (There will be a recap of the forum in the next update)
