Here's what's happening on social media this week, as church members begin accepting Bishop Taylor's challenge to give $10 and 10 hours to ministries supporting children in poverty. Our Conference Council on Youth Ministries (CCYM) selected the hashtags #OurBackyards and #HolstonAC15 to get us started!
$10 from Jeff Wright of Big Stone Gap District

10 hours from Pat Berney of Lincoln Park UMC in Knoxville, Tenn. (He's changing light bulbs before the "Just Lead" program begins.)
$10 from Sandra Johnson of Abingdon District
10 hours each from Shirley Gordon and Jean Wilson, First UMC in Independence, Va. (They're delivering meals to hungry families through the Lamb's Table ministry.)

Who's next? Share your $10/10 hours pics or videos on social media or send to us at thecall@holston.org  #OurBackyards #HolstonAC15
