Fifth Sunday of Easter
May 14, 2017

"We invite everyone to share communion around God's altar. 
We strive to be a welcoming and relevant Christian community doing what matters through prayer, worship, teaching, outreach, fellowship, and service.  
We will demonstrate the real life application of scripture, tradition, and
reason by providing a safe place to respond to each other's needs,   
hurts, joys, and interests."

               Live Like Easton Bike-a-Thon
                            May 4, 2017

Our students had so much fun riding their bikes.  All money raised will go toward a scholarship in memory of Easton Cain.

Christian Formation
If the Resurrection did happen, there must be some difference not only in our lives, but also for the world. What is the hope when faced with  death, decay, and brokenness? How can one survive the destructive powers of this world?  The answer to this question involves a journey into the tomb and an emergence out of it.  Join us in our Christian formation time at 9:30 on May 14 as we start this eight-week focus on the Practices of Resurrected Life.
Easton Cain Memorial Preschool Garden

The front of the Preschool has been re-landscaped and dedicated as the Easton Cain Memorial Garden. The project was spearheaded by preschool teacher Beth Casey and her husband, Officer Chris Casey of the White County Sheriff's department. Preschool teacher Diane Dean also contributed by painting the little boy concrete figure to represent Easton in his preschool shirt. Some of the plants were donated by the Cain family. The garden will be an interactive garden for the preschool students to plant and pick fresh herbs. Thank you Miss Beth and Chris!  
No presents, please; however, to honor Dottie, her family is collecting non-perishable food items to be given to a local food pantry.  If you would like to participate in this way, a basket will be at the door for your donation.  If you are unable to attend, we would very much like to present Dottie with a basket of well wishes in the form of cards or letters. Please send your greetings c/o Tari Watson, 23 Cameo Drive, Flat Rock, NC 28731.  For a map to the party, please see  Nancy Phillips .  Balloons will mark your way to the celebration!
