Rough Cut Men’s Rally – March 7 @ Jonesboro UMC
In the movie industry, a “Rough Cut” is a raw first edition of a movie giving an idea of how the finished product will look, where it has problems and where it excels. DAVID DUSEK uses major motion picture clips, Biblical passages and personal testimonies to lead men through a no holds barred exploration of issues such as greed, stewardship, lust & personal integrity with the goal of beginning the process of open communication & growth that will lead them from being “Rough Cut Men” to the finished product.
Event is 9 am to 4 pm with a pig pickin’ for lunch. Cost is $20 per person. Contact Bill Huggins firstname.lastname@example.org or 919-356-5109 or James Bingham email@example.com or 919-291-4264 for additional information or go to http://fairwaydistrictnc.org/rough-cut-mens-rally-march-7th/ for a printable flyer to distribute.

- An Imagine No Malaria presentation from Rev. Rachel Moser.
The cost is $10 per person, which will cover expenses. We also encourage youth groups in attendance to raise additional donations for Imagine No Malaria to help our Conference reach our $1 million goal. Checks should be made out to “Pinehurst UMC” with “Fairway Youth” on the memo.
