Happy Birthday To Christian Ministry!
Plus: annual meeting is Jan. 31

Lincoln Herald Staff

LINCOLNTON––Christian Ministry of Lincoln County, Inc. is turning 45.

That’s the word Thursday from executive director Mitzi Williams. She said that the ministry’s birthday is Jan. 10.

“Let us thank God for the many years that this ministry has been blessed,” said Williams. “We have been blessed with our many volunteers, our many financial supporters, our committed staff and the strong leadership of our board of directors and ministry committees, as well as all of the stores that have given us food, clothes and household items over the years. We are also blessed with all the local nonprofit agencies that have worked with us over these past 45 years.

“This Sunday,” she added, “please add Christian Ministry to your prayers, that we may continue to serve the poor. This ministry not only serves the tangible needs of those who are not able to provide for themselves, but we also provide the intangible needs, such as love, compassion, respect and hope. Our birthday present wish list is: volunteers!”

For example, the clothing closet is still not open, due to a lack of volunteers to help work and organize it. If you have just one day a month that you could give four hours to volunteer with the ministry, call Woody Saunders at (704) 488-8824 or e-mail him at


Annual meeting Jan. 31

In other news, the ministry’s annual meeting is fast approaching.

It will be held Jan. 31 at 7 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church of Lincolnton at 201 Main St., as Williams informed.

“Due to the COVID-19 virus, we ask that you wear a mask if you plan on attending this meeting,” she said, adding as an important note, “Please check with us the week of Jan. 17 to confirm the meeting. We may have a last-minute change, due to COVID, and we may have to meet (via the Internet) by using Zoom.”

If that happens, Williams said that ministry representatives will contact potential attendees by e-mail to let them know the Zoom link and any other necessary details.

“Just stay in touch!” she added. “Everyone is invited. If you are interested in knowing more about the ministry, this meeting is a good way to learn.”


Souper Bowl of Caring

And it’s almost time for the annual Souper Bowl of Caring.

Williams noted that at this time of year, the ministry is replenishing needed supplies.

“With COVID, it is even more important,” she said. “The Souper Bowl of Caring has become an annual tradition for many congregations, schools and other youth-led communities, which can make a big difference for charities such as ours that serve the community’s most vulnerable.

“During the week before the Super Bowl football game, dollars and canned goods are collected and donated through various Souper Bowl of Caring events,” she added. “On Jan. 11, a letter and a bulletin insert will be mailed out to all of our churches. We hope you will join the Souper Bowl of Caring team to tackle hunger on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 13!”
