Crutchfield Prayer Partners

It’s official…every single person on staff at Crutchfield Elementary School has a prayer partner at First Methodist Sherman! That is a powerful thing!!

Whether you have a prayer partner or not, please remember to keep Crutchfield in your prayers every single day! Prayer makes a difference, and we are going to surround and support with our prayers!

Here are some things to guide your prayers as we enter October and November.

  • Crutchfield will hold an open house in October
    • May it be a time of great communication between parents and teachers
    • May it be a time of bonding for families
  • Report Cards come out October 22nd
    • May God’s peace reign and support those for whom this will be a stressful time
  • Thanksgiving Break
    • May God bless each of the staff’s family
    • May it be a time of rest and renewal

Give ‘A Brush with Kindness’

Our Missions Team needs volunteers to help local homeowners with safety and maintenance-repair projects they can no longer manage on their own, and to provide simple

meals for the volunteers making the home improvements. “A Brush with Kindness Week,” a new initiative by Habitat for Humanity, is Sept. 19-26, and the First Methodist Sherman Missions Team has committed our membership to serve this mission in September.


Here’s where you come in (choose any or all of the following options):
1) Volunteer as a worker at one of the homes;
2) Volunteer to prepare, purchase and/or deliver lunch to the workers at one of the sites;
3) Donate money to go towards the purchase of food and drinks for the meals.
Volunteer as an individual, as a group, as a family, or even as a Sunday School class!
We have three work days at three separate home sites: Saturday, Sept. 19; Wednesday, Sept. 23; and Saturday, Sept. 26. The houses are at 701 E Orange St. in Sherman; 1826 S Mirick in Denison; and 301 Chisholm Trail in Sherman. Working time is from about 8 a.m.-2 p.m., and Habitat is very flexible with volunteers’ schedules and available times. Meal prep and delivery will be for about 20 people at each site, and is intended to be simple and cost-effective.
Each homeowner is a single woman who is participating with Habitat for Humanity by doing her financial part toward the project. Let’s show them that we care for them and appreciate the
initiative they’ve taken!
Sign-up sheets are in the narthex and the office.
