Help Change Our World by Joining In - Here's Whats Happening
Announcements for the next few weeks Mission Focus - Our focus this month will be helping the Women of Faith’s big project of the year. They are hoping to make over 100 pillowcases for the Atlanta Children’s Cancer Centers. This project has never been possible without your help. Here are the ways you can help: donate FUN child-friendly fabric, donate money to purchase the fabric or help on the day of the sew-in. You don’t need to be a sewer! They will need your donations by September 10th. More information can be found on your insert.
Golden Achievers - The Golden Achievers have found another cause they can really get behind (wink)! They will be sponsoring a diaper drive to benefit South Hall Community Food Pantry. The drive will run until September 10. The Golden Achievers are asking for your donation of diapers and/or wipes. The most requested sizes are size 2 & up and it includes pullups. Let’s be the change in someone’s life!
Church Conference - Our annual Church Conference will be held after service on September 10th to celebrate our missional and community work. There will be an update on the progress of church building projects. It is also an opportunity to help us understand what is happening in the UMC.

Ushers are needed--A nice smile and a warm welcome are all the skills it takes to be an usher. One Sunday every couple of months is all the time it takes! Sign up on the table in the Narthex or see Bob Fields, or call the church office or Pastor Kathie if you can help! Help is needed with our Bereavement Committee to assist families who have lost a loved one. It may include helping prepare a meal, ordering flowers, setting up a memorial service at the church or fellowship hall.
