"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."

Preschool News

A note from Colley Case:
When you shop at Ingles grocery stores, you can help Resurrection Preschool.  If we have your name and 12-digit Advantage number, then every time you show your card at Ingles, a small percentage of your purchase will be donated to the school for educational materials at no cost to you.  Last year, we were able to purchase $800 worth of learning materials.  Please fill out the form that will be available at the church or in your mailbox.  If you have questions, call Cassie at 706-865-9682.  Thanks!

The Bishop Is Coming!
And You Can Become a Member

Would you like to be a member of the Episcopal Church and be received by the Bishop when he visits on December 1st? The next three weeks @ 9:30, Father Scott will be offering "Episcopal 101," a series of meetings for those who wish to be received as members. It is also for those who are seeking to explore what it means to live a life of faith within and through the Christian community. Some of the topics to be addressed are: deepening our practice of prayer; the foundations of our faith; growing in awareness of God's presence and work within and around us; and seeking God's guidance in our everyday lives. 

Join us October 13th, 20th, and 27th at 9:30 in the parish hall.
Did you know there is an exercise class at Resurrection?
You are invited to join these lovely ladies each Tuesday at 10:00 a.m.

Men's Fishing Trip
October 10-13, 2019
Andy Gilbert's first catch on the men's fishing trip was a 22" keeper!

Andy Gilbert and Ray Gregory's boat hauled in over 40 lbs of fish today. Fish fry!

Our world is hurting, and we must come together to sow the love of Jesus in a broken world. What does Love in Action look like? Together, we can respond to living into our call to serve Jesus and love as He loves the unwelcome, the disenfranchised, the lost, and the found.

Join Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry, the Royal Wedding Preacher, and Bishop Rob Wright of the Diocese of Atlanta, and Episcopalians, friends, and seekers who are following the call to open their hearts, minds, and doors to the concerns of our state and country, especially people who feel vulnerable and unwelcome.

Presiding Bishop Curry has stirred the whole church to take its place in The Way of Love: the community of people who follow Jesus and form loving, liberating, and life-giving relationships with God, their neighbors, and the environment.

All are invited. All are welcome.
Come experience Love in Action.

All attendees registered before Nov. 1 will be guaranteed seating at ReviveATL. 
After Nov. 1, seating is not guaranteed.
