Our Mission To worship, witness, follow, and serve Jesus Christ as Lord. Our Vision Christ in us; God’s glory manifested!

July Richard Kinn Jeff Bulla Kermit Mathis Kenzie Sherow Greeters: Bryan and Bobbie Holeman Acolyte: Melissa Carver Ushers:

August Jeff Bulla AJ Carver Bryan Holeman Bo Carver Greeters: Bo Carver and Elizabeth Pierson Acolyte: Allie Barker Ushers:

Having just participated in our 2013 Vacation Bible School and also just preached on the passing of the mantle from the prophet Elijah to his successor Elisha, I am reminded of the beauty of the body of Christ at work in the world. When we make covenant with God and each other and promise to support the work of Christ in this place through our prayers, our presence, our gifts, our service and our witness, we truly become light and salt as Jesus declared in His Sermon on the Mount. Each year our church looks to the future to determine who those leaders are to continue to guide the work of our church. These individuals, once identified, are presented to our church’s council and approved at our annual Charge Conference which occurs in the fall. In some cases the Elijah’s among us will pass the mantle to the Elisha’s that will take up the work. We are blessed to have such devoted and committed leaders, and as a result, we have numerous venues to engage in ministry, both within the church and in the community. For example, at our last council meeting we approved a plan to begin a backpack program at Woodland Elementary School to help underprivileged children have enough food during weekends to maintain their proper nutrition. Where this program has been implemented in other schools, it has made a marked difference in the learning abilities for these children. This is just one of numerous ministry opportunities which give us the ability to live out our discipleship in a tangible way; really making a difference in the lives of those around us. Whether it’s participating or leading a committee or work area, teaching at any level from pre-K to adults, helping with reading or backpacks at Woodland Elementary, volunteering at the Christian Help Center, becoming a Guardian ad Litem or a Stephen Minister, or possibly even exploring a call to ministry, the possibilities are truly endless to live into the role God has called you to, gifted you for, and given you a passion to engage in. Joy comes in serving and there is much joy at Concord as we seek to worship, witness, follow and serve Jesus Christ as Lord. Summer is a great time to reflect on these possibilities and to discern God’s specific calling for you as an individual, and if applicable, even as a family. If you have questions or would like to discuss these possibilities in greater depth, just contact me at your convenience. Until then, see you in worship!

United Methodist Women wrap up season with a salad supper Before dismissing for the summer, the United Methodist Women shared a salad supper on June 10, following a brief business meeting. Those attending brought a recipe of the salad they prepared. The recipes will be compiled with other recipes they are collecting for a cookbook they are doing for the upcoming 200th anniversary of the church. The congregation is encouraged to contribute their favorite recipes to help make this a wonderful memento. You may even go to a website and enter your recipes. www.morriscookbooks.com log-in: concordmethodistwome (without the n) password: concordwomen. Rena Morton is listed as the chairperson. When they return in September, they will again be busy deciding which mission needs they will support with the generous donations from Mother’s Day and Father’s Day offerings, among other local and district obligations. The UMW meets the second Monday of each month, September through June.

In the Spotlight: Featuring Lacy Winstead and Dr. Claudia Berryhill Roxboro and the Concord community are blessed to have a couple who contribute to two Methodist congregations. Both Lacy Winstead and Dr. Claudia Berryhill have deep roots in their Person County heritage; their families go back generations in this area. Lacy was born in Durham County, educated in the Durham County schools and finished high school in Jacksonville, Florida. But every chance he got, he was back here in Person County at the home and farm of his grandparents, Erma and Raymond Winstead, who were lifelong members of Concord United Methodist Church. Lacy attended the Citadel, Campbell College and earned a BS degree in Agronomy from North Carolina State College in 1966, the last year of its being a “college.” He returned home to Olive Hill, married, began a family and a farming career with his grandfather raising polled Herefords and tobacco. His two daughters are Blair Atkiss and husband, Tyler, who live in Mebane and have a daughter, Isabelle, and a son, Ian who is deceased. His younger daughter is Paige Welch who lives in the Olive Hill community with her husband Michael and daughter Gracie. Claudia was born in Catawba County and her parents, Gene and Huldah Berryhill, and younger brother “Cal” moved to Person County in 1952. She, Cal and another brother, Joe, grew up in the Bethel Hill community on one of their mother’s family farms. Cal and Joe are fifth generation farmers of that land today. Claudia was educated in Person County schools, attended Sweet Briar College and graduated with a BS degree in Zoology from North Carolina State University in 1972. She then went on for four years at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine and received a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 1976. After practicing for one year in Scotland Neck, N. C., in a mixed animal practice, she moved back to Person County and started Woodsdale Animal Hospital in the old Woodsdale Post Office. After being in that facility for seven years, she brought Woodsdale to Morgan Street where she practiced until October 2010. She says giving up her lifelong dream of being a veterinarian was “bittersweet.” ”I never wanted to do anything else other than practice veterinary medicine, but after 34 years I found that I wanted some time for myself and my family,” she says. “I miss the pets and lots of the people, but I really don’t miss the business,” she states. Lacy continues his real estate and property management business, Jack Reynolds and Associates, and plans on continuing that business and also spending some time with real estate business in Wrightsville Beach. “I like the challenge of putting together deals and making things work out,” he states. Claudia has been a member of Long Memorial United Methodist Church since childhood and they were married in the chapel in December 1980, with Rev. Tom Holtsclaw officiating and Sandy Treacy playing the organ. They presently live on Hyco Lake and enjoy lake activities, their house at Wrightsville Beach, (Continued next page)

(Spotlight: Continued from previous page) gardening, historic preservation projects, travel and Wolfpack sports. Their most recent project was the restoration of the old “Massey building;” the upstairs are two apartments and the street level is an event rental venue, “The Gathering Place.” “I had not planned on starting another business in my “golden years,” quipped Claudia,” but the opportunity came along so we walked through that door.” They both are active in various community activities. Lacy is a long time member of the Roxboro Rotary Club, having held several club officer positions, served as Assistant District Governor and held other district committee responsibilities. He was a driving force in the restoration of Roxboro Cotton Mill to become Roxboro Community School – a $4 million project completed in 127 days under his direction. He remains on the board now in an emeritus seat. He also was on the steering committee for the enlargement of the Concord Cemetery. He has held various positions of leadership with Concord. Claudia is a member of the Person County Board of Health, NC Commission of Public Health, Person Memorial Hospital Board of Trustees and Person County Museum of History Board of Directors. She is a lifelong member of Long Memorial UMC, having served on finance, and trustee committees and is currently chair of the Endowment Committee. They are “parents” to Hyco’s Miss Rowan “RoRo,” a 10 year old Brittany Spaniel, “Puss Callie” and “Puss Blackie,” six year old sister cats. “We don’t think we could leave here; we have a little cemetery of all our pets since before we were married and that ground is special to us,” they say. They both agree that “Concord is the epitome of what a Methodist Church should be; warmth and friendliness of the people, the multitude of activities available for all, the responsiveness of the leadership of the church and the power of the pulpit from all who deliver the gospel to the congregations and the ministries to all.”

NC ANNUAL CONFERENCE: The 2013 North Carolina Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church was held at the Greenville Convention Center in Greenville, North Carolina on June 12-15, 2013. The theme for the quadrennium is a powerful image from Psalm 84, “Strength to Strength.” The 2013 Annual Conference will focus on Grow!” (Discipleship). Our Bishop, Hope Morgan Ward, presided over the conference with the assistance of Conference Secretary Rev. Jerry Bryan and Conference Lay Leader Gary Locklear. Each year the conferences across our denomination meet to conduct the work of the church within their respective conferences. Once every quadrennium, the entire denomination meets at its General Conference to do the work of the denomination’s global church. The next meeting of the General Conference will be in 2016. This year’s Annual Conference successfully completed the work of the church by hearing reports, addressing resolutions, approving budgets, and had powerful worships. For more detailed information log onto the North Carolina Conference website at: http://NCCUMC.org/ If you are a member of Concord and are interested in being a Lay Representative at the next NC Annual Conference and are able to make the time to participate from a Wednesday through Saturday next June, please discuss this opportunity with Pastor Karl.

VBS theme is all about fun Vacation Bible School was held June 23-27, with nearly 40 children participating. Dinner was served each evening at 6 p.m. At right, Tim Chandler was the Ring Master, as the Sanctuary was turned into a circus world! Each night, students and teachers were asked to wear the same color T-shirt. Colors were: Sunday: Orange, Monday: Red, Tuesday: Blue, Wednesday: Purple, Thursday: Green. Cecil and Renee Barker served sandwiches with all the trimmings to kick off the week. Doug Bowman is shown working his magic to the amazement of everyone. To the delight of the congregation at the 11 a.m. worship service on June 30, the children shared the songs they learned during the week to close out a fun-filled Bible School. Thank you to all our leaders, teachers, parents and children who made the week so much fun! Can’t wait to see what is in store for next year!
