Lenten Lunch HUMMER *

Lenten Lunch HUMMER * HORSES * AMERICA TripAdvisor: #1 TOUR COMPANY IN NC #1 “THING TO DO” IN OBX By: Rev. Chip Broadfoot For at least the past fifty years, Christ Episcopal Church has offered Noonday services followed by lunches every Tuesday during the season of Lent. At 12:05 we gather to worship together, and then eat a delicious luncheon prepared by the Episcopal Church Women. The purpose of the worship is to invite clergy from other churches in the downtown Elizabeth City area to preach, as well as the congregations to share in the fellowship of a meal. The mealtime is a time of hospitality and friendship. We lift up our common interest of doing the ministry of Jesus Christ together in the world. So, while we may differ in worship style, we are inspired by this common purpose. This year the churches involved in the Lenten Luncheons at Christ Episcopal Church are: Cann Memorial Presbyterian Church, Blackwell Baptist Church, First United Methodist Church, Cornerstone Missionary Baptist Church, First Baptist Church, and Forerunner Ministries.

Not valid with Purchase My experience changing to HughesNet Living in rural Northeastern North Carolina there is not a lot of Internet options. Like other rural areas the local providers (if any) is not very reliable and the big phone companies work great if you are close enough to a switching station. You are lucky if you live close enough to a town with cable. But in my case, my choice was a local provider. After years of hoping they would do better in providing a reliable service we just had to do something. Having started a small business a few years ago I was having to rely on the local provider to do business. Most of the time it was OK. Then something happened. No Internet. Then a week without Internet. Then two weeks. After several calls and every day a promise it would be working in an hour or so my business started to suffer. After one phone call, the person at the local Internet company stated that “ we don’t think not having The Internet affects your business”. That was it. We started looking at options. A friend recommended HughsNet. He had a several year relationship with them and was very happy. After a quick phone call (800-701-3148) a couple days later we had HughesNet. What a difference! It was faster and cheaper, and we were finally able to stream video without the problems we had in the past. All I can say that if you live in a rural area, give HughesNet a try. (800-701-3148) The old satellite horror stories are a thing of the past. The new technology works flawlessly and we finally are able to have a reliable connection to the Internet. (800-701-3148) give them a call. All of our clients get their own QR code for free when purchasing an ad. Albemarle Tradewinds May 2016 21
