Sunday, we switch from Eastern Daylight Savings Time back to Eastern Standard Time at 2 a.m.  Set all clocks back one hour before going to bed Saturday night.  It is also a good time to check fire alarms, smoke detectors, heat detectors, and carbon monoxide detectors to ensure they are in good working conditions. With an extra hour of sleep Saturday night, you will have extra time for rest between these community events for your enjoyment:

The V-Point Ruritan Club will sponsor a country ham breakfast from 7-10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 5 at the V-Point Building on Old Mocksville Road at Society Road about .3 mile from NC 901. Proceeds benefit community projects. The Ruritans look forward to seeing you there.

Salem United Methodist Church will host a “Fall Festival” beginning at 5 p.m. Saturday.  Church members invite everyone for a meal of chicken stew, hotdogs and dessert followed by games and a hayride. Those who would like to bring a dessert may do so.  Come and enjoy a night of good food, family fun, and fellowship.

Calvary Baptist Church will celebrate homecoming Sunday, Nov. 6. Pastor Barkley will bring the homecoming message at the 11 a.m. worship service. A covered-dish dinner will follow.  Church members invite former members and friends to bring a basket of food and memories to share.

Society Baptist Church will host a “Fall Fest” fellowship this Sunday. Activities begin at 5 p.m. and include hayrides, cornhole, and fellowship. There will be a meal of soup and chili with dessert at 6 p.m. If it is raining at 5, there will only be a meal at 6.  Church members invite others in the community.

The Women on Mission of Society Baptist will meet at 9 a.m. this Saturday.  The women will discuss plans for the coming year, including helping with the men’s Thanksgiving dinner boxes and promoting the Lottue Moon International Missions Christmas offering.  They invite others.

The Baptist Men of Society will meet at 7 a.m. this Saturday. They invite others for breakfast and prayer. The men will make plans for their Thanksgiving dinners for families of need and will discuss community needs and future projects.The men continue to collect monetary donations to buy groceries for traditional Thanksgiving dinners for families of need in our area.  The boxes of groceries will be delivered to the families the Saturday before Thanksgiving Day. For more information, recommend a family of need in our community or to donate; please call Baptist Men of Society Treasurer John Nantz on 704-929-8199.
