We will receive all donations on Saturday, November 3 from 9am-noon in the HCUMC kitchen. All are welcome to travel with us to Austin Street Sunday morning at 5:15 am from the HCUMC kitchen. (Remember to set your clocks back first!) We will drive to Austin Street, set up and serve breakfast. We will also collect retail plastic bags for the residents to carry their food because all residents must leave the shelter at 7:00 am. For more information, contact Rick Davis 972-814-5325.

Highlights Outside Holy Covenant
Laity Gathering with the Bishop
Saturday, December 1
10 am to Noon
Shipp Chapel, Lovers Lane UMC
9200 Inwood Rd.
Dallas 75220
Bishop Michael McKee invites all laity of the Metro District to a gathering related to General Conference 2019. This is an informational meeting designed to give participants an update on the issues. While there will be adequate time for a question-and-answer session, this is not a time for debate. In the way of Ephesians 4:3, we ask that you join us in “making every effort to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”

Depressed Anonymous
Meets Wednesdays at 6:00 pm
The Colony Emergency Hospital
4780 Hwy 121, The Colony, TX 75056
Meetings are approximately one hour and are open to any person in the area who feels they suffer from depression and wish to find a way out of “the prison of depression”. We follow a 12 STEP program, similar to that of AA, and discuss materials relating to how one can contain or escape depression. The meetings are open-ended so a person may join at any time. Send questions to dathecolony@gmail.com.
