Shine A Light - Love In Action
Thursday, July 26, 2018 at 7:00 pm

 

Shine A Light Ministry invites you to join us on Thursday, July 26 at 7pm for our Fifth Annual Sandwich-Making and DMST (Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking) Education Event. Shine A Light packs healthy lunches for children on free school lunch programs who, when school is out, may not get a lunch. In fact, the lunch we provide may be a child's only meal that day. Shine A Light works with our partner, Action Ministries, to deliver 200 lunches to Action's distribution center.

There will be a speaker at 7pm, who will discuss how metro-Atlanta organizations (including the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta) are combating DMST. Following the program, at 7:30 our "assembly line" will make sandwiches and fill lunch bags. Typically, we are out by 9pm.

Have fun. Share fellowship. Put love into action by feeding at-risk youth.




Current, past, & future acolytes are invited to a pool party  Saturday, July 28, 1-4 p.m. at the Georgetown Rec Center,  4307 Old Georgetown Trail, Dunwoody . Meet at the clubhouse for snacks and games. Bring a towel if you want to swim. We'll have fun rain or shine. 

RSVP to Dana Dolan by July 26: dc18dolan@gmail.com or  (678) 467-4098 if you haven't already responded to the invite.

Do You Have A Penchant for Plants?





There are living plants located in many classrooms around the church that need loving attention. They need to be watered and rotated regularly. If you feel called to this ministry, please contact Cowen Harter at cowen.harter@stpat.net.                                                                          

Do You Need a Name Tag?


If you do not have a name tag, please sign your name on the sign-up sheet located on the information table in the narthex. Name tags are made weekly and are clipped to the screen. They  are organized by the first letter of your last name. Please don't forget to return your name tag to the screen before you leave.

Modeled after Cursillo, Walk to Emmaus, and Happening, Discovery is a weekend with activities for all ages, with plenty of opportunity for sharing, learning, building community, singing and fun! At Discovery, you will make new friendships and strengthen your ties to God and your church family. There are two separate offerings: one for adults and YEA, and another for children, Rite 13 and J2A. And while it is an in-house renewal weekend, you will return Friday and Saturday nights to sleep in the comfort of your own bed! Discovery is a gift to you from the Parish. We only ask that you commit to participating the entire weekend. So please mark your calendars, pray about joining us on Discovery, and stay tuned for more information.
