“LOVE WINS…ALWAYS” MUGS ARE AVAILABLE!

EMPTY BOWLS COMMITTEE

Throughout the pandemic, our fingers have remained on the pulse of our neighbors in need which, in turn, brought holy hands back to the pottery wheel and kilns to create unique mugs stamped with what we believe: “Love wins…Always.” These hand-thrown mugs are the gift of Missions Pottery in Lexington with custom glazing done by Amber Zander and Sandy McGhee. The cost is $25 each with ALL proceeds directed towards Cooperative Community Ministry and Project Divine Interruption.
Points of purchase include:

  • Memorial United Methodist Church on Sunday morning, July 18th, and Wednesday, August 11th from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
  • Thomasville Farmers Market on Saturday, July 17th from 8 am -noon at the bake sale area
  • Other opportunities, as well as personal showings, can be arranged by contacting Sandy McGhee at (336)870-4015, Tracy Brinkley at (336)880-5875, or Amber Zander at (336)880-8000.Please note that this limited offering will help bridge the gap of resources until we come around the table once again for the next Empty Bowls Dinner and Silent Auction on Friday, March 18th, 2022!
