Homecoming Sept. 24
Sunday, October 22, 2023
Join us for our annual Homecoming bash on Sunday, Sept. 24. We’ll worship at 11am with an old fashioned hymn sing, then feast together at a bountiful covered dish lunch. This will be a wonderful opportunity to both use and view the new kitchen. In addition, we’ll honor our past through the sale of decorative “porch boards” made from the reclaimed wood from the old picnic shelter. These boards came from Arthur Buckaloo's grandfather, Alphonso Johnson(1904-1991); and our church members are painting them so you can take your own piece of Springwood history home with you. Hope you’ll join us!
Springwood Church is participating in three festivals in October! Come out and enjoy fun and fellowship!
Whitsett Fair, Oct. 7 (Whitsett Town Hall)
Springwood volunteers will be on hand to create fall craft projects with kids at our festival booth. We will highlight our Playschool as we meet families in our community. Have an hour or two for some fun? Let us know!
Gibsonville Fall Festival, Oct. 14 (downtown Gibsonville) We’ll be there all day, serving sandwiches and baked items to hungry festival attendees! Volunteer for any amount of time you are available. This is a great festival!
Springwood Church Fall Festival, Oct. 28
(Springwood Church, Whitsett) - The main event! This is our chance to offer our community a great day of fun and entertainment as we serve and get to know our neighbors. We would love your volunteer enthusiasm and community spirit as we provide children’s activities, a bluegrass band, food from our new kitchen, and much more. Are you a great organizer? Can you set up or take down? Do you have a (not so) hidden talent (i.e. face painting, etc.)? Call us and we’ll find a place for you!
Intersection of Science and Religion
Please join Rev. Dan & Pastor Evelyn for this intriguing discussion!
Springwood Church is excited to host a weekend educational opportunity exploring the intersection of science and religion - a hot topic of our time. The seminar will be taught by the Rev. Dan Wray, who has years of experience and extensive knowledge in the field. The Rev. Dan Wray has been a pastor for 45 years and is currently the pastor of First Presbyterian Church in Badin, NC. He taught philosophy, religion, and American literature at Stanly Community College in Albemarle for 22 years. He approaches the intersection of science and religion from the perspective of the earliest philosophers and theologians, and helps us understand science and religion go together in the biblical story. Dan explains the idea behind the series: "Both religion and science have taken a hit politically in recent years; but there's no necessity of science and religion being at war. Western society itself is based on the pillars of science and religion." The weekend will consist of 5 sessions, from Friday, November 3rd, through Sunday November 5th.

What’s a “must have” item on your Thanksgiving table?

Join the church family for an old fashioned Thanksgiving Feast this year. We’ll cook the turkeys and gravy in our new church kitchen, and you can sign up to bring sides or desserts. Not a cook? Then volunteer to help with the set-up, serving, or clean up, or just come enjoy the feast. Grace (and gravy) abounds! We’ll be finished by 2pm, so you can go home to watch a game or take a nap!
