Threshold Church to Celebrate Mother’s Day and Red Nose Day
Mother’s Day and Red Nose Day are among many “firsts” for Threshold UMC, a new church start in Newnan. Planted by the North Georgia Conference in 2014, Threshold is taking root and attracting people of diverse backgrounds who want to be part of a vibrant, growing ministry.
“As a pastor of a new church start, my primary goal is to help people connect with God and other people,” said Pastor Quincy Brown, who is often referred to as “Q.”
He went on to say that Threshold would create connection points through community outreach and service.
“We will use Mother’s Day as a launching point to raise awareness for Red Nose Day, which is celebrated on May 21.”
Red Nose Day, (www.rednoseday.org) a campaign dedicated to raising money for children and young people living in poverty, was conceived in the United Kingdom in 1985 as a day filled with humor in order to raise awareness of the sore plight of children worldwide. Donors wear red noses, and the monies raised on Red Nose Day support agencies and organizations that provide assistance to children living in poverty in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the United States.
Brown said he decided to link Mother’s Day and Red Nose Day after reflecting that worldwide, mothers often find themselves making hard choices that may impact their children’s lives for generations to come. He pointed to the story of Moses and his mother (Exodus 2:1-9).
“His mother didn’t know whether God would save her child, but she made the best decision she could at the time. Moses may have disagreed with her decision, but what other options did she have?”
“I’d like mothers to walk away with a renewed sense of value and purpose, and by linking Mother’s Day with Red Nose Day we can help other mothers make the future a little brighter for their children," Brown explained.
As a Thank You for all of their hard work, the first 25 mothers in attendance will receive a gift card so they can treat themselves.
Threshold UMC is located in theater #9 at the Regal Georgian Cinemas in Ashley Park Shopping Center and worship begins at 10 a.m. Starting in July, services will be held twice a month. Weekly services commence Sunday, September 13.
