"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."

Women's Bible Study
1st & 3rd Thursdays

The Women's Bible Study Group is reading The Red Tent by Anita Diamant.  We are meeting on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays in the Resurrection parking lot at 5:30 p.m.

All ladies are welcome to join us!  If you have any questions, please contact Denise Dorsey 
(706-969-0514, ddorsey1731@gmail.com). 

Her name is Dinah. In the Bible, her life is only hinted at in a brief and violent detour within the more familiar chapters of the Book of Genesis that tell of her father, Jacob, and his twelve sons.

Told in Dinah's voice, Anita Diamant imagines the traditions and turmoils of ancient womanhood--the world of the red tent. It begins with the story of the mothers--Leah, Rachel, Zilpah, and Bilhah--the four wives of Jacob. They love Dinah and give her gifts that sustain her through childhood, a calling to midwifery, and a new home in a foreign land. Dinah's story reaches out from a remarkable period of early history and creates an intimate connection with the past.

Deeply affecting, The Red Tent combines rich storytelling with a valuable achievement in modern fiction: a new view of biblical women's lives.

Protect all frontline essential workers as they bravely go about their duties. We pray for them and for the sick, the lonely, and their caregivers. Let them experience health and wholeness in your healing presence.
