SHORT STACKS for BIG CHANGE------A big “THANK YOU” for a turnout last Saturday @ Fatz Café that cleared $649 to help purchase food for our Hominy Valley neighbors in need. Despite not having the best turnout in numbers, donations and generous tips at the table helped us to have an “average” profit. Thanks for the generosity of all who came—or paid for tickets and were unable to come! Also, we had a record turnout of UMM to serve pancakes, with servers from most of our churches.
Fund Raiser Results:
We are honored and blessed to welcome Pastor Rennie Salata as our new minister. He has been living in Brevard while pastoring the Long’s and Cruso United Methodist Churches in the Canton area. His wife, Lauren, is Associate Pastor at Brevard First United Methodist Church.
We are eager for you to meet and get to know him as members, neighbors, ministry partners, and friends of our church. Please come and worship with us on Sunday, July 12, as we welcome our new pastor!

As United Methodists, we have “open doors and open arms” for all, as did Jesus. Others tell us we are a friendly church. We feature traditional worship and a variety of small-group and community-service opportunities. We have a talented director and organist that lead our music program; and an active choir that welcomes new voices. For our youth, we participate in Hominy Valley United Methodist Youth and for children we offer opportunities for music, education, and service. Our United Methodist Women and United Methodist Men are service/mission oriented and educational opportunities are varied on Sunday and through the week. Service opportunities include the Acton Preschool, ABCCM (Hominy Valley Crisis Ministry site), Congregations for Children, mentoring at Sand Hill–Venable Elementary School (Buncombe County's largest elementary school across the street), and others. We have the largest volunteer participation at Hominy Valley Crisis Ministry of any church and are active in the Hominy Valley Missional Network, cooperating in a variety of outreach programs in our area.
We’re accessible—just off I-40 at Exit 44 ---- and we invite you to visit.
We aspire to “follow Jesus, make disciples and transform the world” into a loving place for a diverse people. Acton is about 125 years in the making and we are open to what God is doing in our lives, our community, and our world. As the scriptures say, “Behold I am doing a new thing. Do you not perceive it?” Come and help us do a new thing!
