COVID-19 Update:

Due to the spread of the 2019 novel coronavirus known as COVID-19. Cruso United Methodist Church has moved all interactions online, by phone, or paper mail. Our Facebook page has up-to-date information regarding ways to connect with us, how to participate in online Sunday worship, and how to join a small group or bible study. We continue to be the church and we continue to serve the Cruso community!

Join a letter-writing group

Have you wanted to be more consistent in your letter writing? Are there people who you’d like to write to, but just don’t take the time to do so? Have you ever sat down to write, but found you were out of stamps? Are you looking for a way to show your love and care for the community that doesn’t involve heavy lifting or large crowds? Would you like a good reason to sit in Canton’s coolest new coffee shop for the afternoon?

All these are great reasons to join the Papertown Letter-writers group. We are a group of caring people from the Canton, NC area who meet the first Wednesday of each month (3:30pm at Papertown Coffee) to send letters to a wide range of people. We take turns bringing stamps and stationery as we are able to. Sometimes we write to people we know, sometimes we write to people we don’t know. Our message is always one of care and support. Lately we have been writing letters to folks detained at the Haywood County Jail.

We are an inclusive and public group – all are welcome to join. Though many of us are motivated by our faith to write letters of encouragement, everyone, regardless of beliefs, is welcome to write with us.

Is there someone you know who needs to hear that you love them and care about them? Come join us and send them a letter! If you know of people or groups of people who we might write to, please bring a list of names and addresses. There may be people in this group willing to help you write to them. Everyone is free to decide who they will write to and how much time they can dedicate to writing. Spread the word! We’ll bring the stamps.
