Listed below are some ways our church continues to serve as we are called to do. Announcements: The Angel Giving Tree - Once again we will brighten a child’s Christmas by giving a gift to those in need. The tree is in the foyer of the church with an envelope for each child and a suggested gift. Pick up an envelope today or call the church office and a card will be picked for you. The gifts should be in by Monday, December 14. See or call Kris Sampson if you have questions.
Wednesday evening Gathering and Book Study—We began a new book study—’Incarnation’ by Adam Hamilton, on December 2. Text Pastor Tyler at 678-699-9547 or call the church office if you can join us.
Golden Achievers— Project Christmas Stocking—We will deliver 100 stockings to Willow Wood Nursing Home filled with combs, toothbrush, toothpaste, hand sanitizer, Upper Room, beanie baby, tissues and tube socks. We need tube socks and combs. Stockings will be put together on Monday, December 14. and delivered to the nursing home on Monday Dec. 21. If you can help stuff stockings or deliver please see Bea Terrell or Kris Sampson.
Photos for the next directory—We would like to include pictures in the next directory. Please send a nice photo of yourself, your family or you and your favorite pet to the church email. We will incorporate these photos in our next directory. If you don’t have a digital photo to send in, please mail a photo to the church to be included.
Flowers for the alter—We will begin the new year with a calendar for the flowers on the alter. If you would like to have flowers placed on the alter on a certain date, in memory or in honor of a friend or loved one, please send a note to the church office with the information and a suggested donation of $20. The calendar will be on the table in the foyer if you need to sign up at church.
Food Ministry - Food Boxes will be distributed Friday, December 18. This ministry is funded mostly through our congregational giving. During this season of giving we have transitioned to a drive-in service, where the boxes are loaded in the cars and the families stay safe, as do our volunteers. We have also received enough bread and food items from Publix that we have been able to share with the Oakwood Food Pantry and the Prince of Peace Food ministry. God is so Great! Pray for this ministry and the families you support - It is a difficult time for many and the need is great.
Prayer Team- the Prayer Partners continue to pray each Tuesday at 10:00 am and as needs arise, emails or phone texts are sent with special requests. Many of you pray with us during the week as schedules permit. Add your name to the list of 'Pray-ers' and a prayer list will be sent to you. Call or email the church office for this list. If you have a prayer need - a request or a thanksgiving - please let us know. You may call Pastor Tyler or call the church office. Prayer is a strong connectional bond with our Savior that we need every hour and every day.
Volunteers needed: There is always room for an extra helping hand. If you would like to volunteer an hour or so to any of the above mission works, please see Pastor Tyler or call the church office.
