Pasta, Passion and Pistols murder mystery dinner will be performed on April 25, 2015 at 6:00 pm, in the Family Life Building of Jones Chapel UMC. Tickets are available from mission team members or the pastor. Email revcrab@hopeforhealing.org for more information on buying tickets, becoming a team member or to volunteer.

Silent auction and raffle items are also needed. It's a good opportunity for a business to gain visibility.

Three teams are scheduled to leave this summer. Jones Chapel has a longstanding relationship with the Choctaw Reservation in Mississippi. This team leaves in June and is led by Bert and Leslye Beria. New trips this year include a VBS in Girdwood, Alaska in July and a construction trip to North Carolina later this summer.

The mission trips to Alaska and North Carolina are being organized through Wesleyanna UMC in partnership with Jones Chapel UMC. Funds from the mystery dinner fundraiser will largely benefit the Alaska team. Team member positions are open on all trips. Email Rev. John Crabtree at the address above to be part of these mission opportunities.
