The Scotland County Ministerial Alliance met June 10 at 1 p.m. at the Methodist Church. Those present were Karen Biggs, Curtis and Marie Ebeling, Dan Hite and Jack Sumption.
The group discussed the cancellations of the Scotland County Fair and Antique Days. Hite also shared that the food pantry will be receiving dairy products from Prairie Farms.
Marie Ebeling asked about each church donating packages of disinfecting wipes and hand sanitizer for the backpack collection of school supplies. It is the intention to donate these items directly to the classrooms for use there. The items needed are: Hand sanitizer – 10, 16 or 32 ounce; Clorox or Lysol sanitizing wipes in cylinder containers, and refill packs of baby wipes, or containers with top openings.
There will be a link on the SCR-I district’s Facebook page in July for each student to register directly for the back to school supplies giveaway. The Ministerial Alliance wishes to continue to help meet the needs of families in Scotland County with much needed school supplies.
The shed behind the Clothes Closet will be removed soon. Steve Blessing will be doing rough-in plumbing. Curtis Ebeling is coordinating the concrete work while the alliance is still deciding on the floor plan for the Clothes Closet. Jack Sumption will be contacting C&C Contracting to secure a copy of the building plan.
Many prayers are needed for this community, and the work of the Scotland County Ministerial Alliance in their work in the county. Many changes are impacting the lives of all area residents and the goal is to keep the community stable during and after the pandemic.
Please contact any of the alliance members with concerns relative to needs of the county in this manner.
The next regular meeting will be held July 8 at the Memphis Methodist Church.
