The Fuel Up Backpack program is a ministry supported by Mount Vernon UMC and Sapling Ridge UMC. We provide backpacks of food to students to meet their nutritional needs during week-ends and breaks during the normal school year. Each Friday the backpacks are given out and contain enough food to last for the week-end.
Join us Saturday, June 7, 2014 for a golf tournament. All proceeds will support the Fuel Up Back Pack ministry.
The tournament starts at 8:30am at Sourwood Forest GC. Download the full flyer and signup form here.
Registrations are due by June 2, 2014.

The Silk Hope Ruritan Club Benefit Bingo Schedule for 2014 has been announced. Visit our Event Calendar for upcoming dates!
We had great success in 2013 with our Benefit Bingo and we are looking to have even greater success in 2014.
All proceeds are used to help the Silk Hope community. In 2013, we were able to increase our scholarships to Chatham County students, donate money to Silk Hope School for teacher supplies. In 2014, we look forward to improving our scholarships and assistance of local area schools and students even more.
