Sunday Worship at 10am

Location: Monkey Wrench Brewing

3425 Martin Farm Rd., Suwanee, GA 30024

Good News Family & Friends,

Don't forget that Father's Day is THIS Sunday, June 19, so get your cards in the mail ASAP! Thank you, Ray Souza, for preaching these past two Sundays so that Laura and I and our family could get some time away visiting my parents in Delray Beach, FL and time this week with Laura's family in St. Augustine, FL. Starting a church is all encompassing, exciting, and exhausting, so it's great to have a couple of weeks to rest, refresh, and recharge. (NOTE: Thank you also to Matt Dickey, Dave Lee, Cravens Doggett, Jeff Scordino, Kyle Drake, Lynae Scordino, Liana Scordino, our entire worship team, and many others of you who have pitched in and helped with set up, break down, bringing food, etc. We LOVE our church family and we love you!)

Father's Day Sunday Worship (10am)

We hope you can join us THIS Sundays (10am) for Father's Day, breakfast, and fellowship! It's summer (and warmer in the warehouse), so feel free to dress casual and comfortable. With many on vacation each week this summer, we're lighter on breakfast fare, so if you'd like to pitch in and bring food to share, that would be great! If you bring food, feel free to make or pick something up (i.e., donuts, bagels, sausage biscuits, etc.).


Verse of the Week

"A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling." - Psalm 68:5

Quote of the Week

“When I thought God was hard, I found it easy to sin; but when I found God so kind, so good, so overflowing with compassion, I beat my breast to think I could ever have rebelled against One who loved me so and sought my good.” - Charles Spurgeon

NEW! Resource of the Week

I've had a chance to do a decent amount of reading these past couple of weeks and thought I'd share these two interesting blog posts by Tim Challies. Which of these jump out at you?

The vision of Good News Church GA is "to experience and express LOVE from God to others." The verse that undergirds our vision is Galatians 5:5b, “The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.” We value people, community, relationships, prayer, and Bible reading. We also value being able to be yourself. We’re all struggling with something, so there’s no need to pretend that we have it all together.
