Sermon Text: Luke 13:10-17
10Now he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. 11And just then there appeared a woman with a spirit that had crippled her for eighteen years. She was bent over and was quite unable to stand up straight. 12When Jesus saw her, he called her over and said, ‘Woman, you are set free from your ailment.’ 13When he laid his hands on her, immediately she stood up straight and began praising God. 14But the leader of the synagogue, indignant because Jesus had cured on the Sabbath, kept saying to the crowd, ‘There are six days on which work ought to be done; come on those days and be cured, and not on the Sabbath day.’ 15But the Lord answered him and said, ‘You hypocrites! Does not each of you on the Sabbath untie his ox or his donkey from the manger, and lead it away to give it water? 16And ought not this woman, a daughter of Abraham whom Satan bound for eighteen long years, be set free from this bondage on the Sabbath day?’ 17When he said this, all his opponents were put to shame; and the entire crowd was rejoicing at all the wonderful things that he was doing.

SPRING INTO ACTION
We are asking all members of the congregation to contribute disposable diapers of any size to be donated to Birthright of Georgetown. Birthright is an organization which offers love, friendship and support to women who are pregnant; it is interdenominational and not involved in any political activities or lobbying. Birthright's focus is on loving and helping the mother and baby. You will see decorated boxes in both the narthex and Berly Hall where diapers can be placed from March 8 - March 27. Everyone is invited to help with this diaper drive!

e-Giving – a Call For More Use
We need your help. There are a lot of donations that are made with a handwritten check to our church – in many cases on a weekly basis. These donations are important and appreciated to sustain our church and to support our local missions.
Each check must be manually counted, taken to the bank and entered into our accounting software (PowerChurch) and documented in your giving record. All these steps can be automated by using e-Giving. One you establish your e-Giving recurring donation, everything happens without you writing the check. The money is transferred to the church via our e-Giving company (Vanco) and is automatically imported into PowerChurch. This saves a huge amount of time, is more secure and prevents errors.
You have total control over your online donations. You can adjust, stop and start new donations as you see fit. If you aren’t comfortable with computers / tablets, you can still use this service by submitting a paper form to authorize e-Giving from your bank or credit card account.
I (Dave Streeter) am the e-Giving administrator. I will help you setup e-Giving and answer any questions you may have.
Sign up today for e-giving – start by going to www.saintpaulsumc.com
web page and clicking “Online Giving” at the top right of the home page. On the next page you will see a link that provides directions on how to sign up and make your donations.
Please feel free to call or email me with questions or to get assistance. You can reach me at 703-786-0670 (cell). My home email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org; Church email address: email@example.com.
With love and blessings,
St. Paul’s Waccamaw UMC Treasurer

A Message From Rebecca Sinkway
The Tidelands Community Care Network works with the Hospital Charity and Tidelands Community Resources to help the uninsured and underinsured have access to healthcare and connect them with local resources that can assist with things like housing and food banks. We have a strong focus in care coordination and case managing, and health education. Often the people we help are disabled medically and many are even approved for disability, but must wait for a 2-year period before they are awarded health coverage. We offer much needed access to and guidance through the healthcare system. We help people to find work partnering with vocational rehab and work to help people “get back on their feet” by avoiding staggering healthcare costs especially when faced with job loss or new disability. Unfortunately, since we are a charity, relying on grants for funding, we are often not able to get the necessary medical equipment we need for our participants. We rely on the donations of others. We service rural communities from Hemingway to Loris, to all the urban and rural communities in between, to get the necessary healthcare they need. We provide access to Tidelands providers and Tidelands hospitals for primary and specialty care as well as much needed surgeries, procedures and hospital stays. We help the under educated and illiterate to navigate an often confusing and complex healthcare system to better understand their diagnoses and to get to the practitioners they need.
I am Rebecca Sinkway, a Registered Nurse, working for Tidelands Hospital doing case management and health education for many participants and helping them to get approved for our charity programs. I am also a long-time member of St Paul’s Waccamaw United Methodist Church.
I would like to ask for any donations that you can spare. Below is a list of things we are in frequent need of:
Shower Chairs, Wheelchairs, Canes, Walkers, Bedside Commodes, Adult diapers (various sizes), Bed pads for incontinence. We also occasionally need to assist in furnishing homes as they often have no furniture at all Chairs, Beds, Tables, Side tables, Lamps, Pots and pans, Silverware, Dishes, and Old TVs.
We have limited space so larger items (beds, recliners, etc.) may not be able to be stored but would be requested on a case-by-case basis. If you have any questions, you can reach me at 843-652-8113, Monday through Friday.
Thanks for your help!
