The Third Sunday of Easter
May 5, 2019
"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."

Our last group Bible study of the season will be Thursday May 2, 6:00 p.m. at the church. We will be watching the inspirational - and funny - Liz Curtis Higgs video, "Embrace Grace."  Over the summer, we will read her book by the same title and share our thoughts on-line! 

Text Jane Mitchell at 706-316-6921 if you are interested.  Details will then be sent out to the group on how to participate. Books can be purchased on-line at Amazon or most any other booksellers.

We will resume regular meetings in the fall - dates to be announced.

Come join our fellowship.  You'll be glad you did!

This Sunday's Anthem:

Lamb of God
By Twila Paris

What we don't know about ourselves can really trip us up, our relationships, and generally how we make our way in the world. It can also keep us in the shallows with God. Have you ever wondered what really makes you tick, why certain things motivate you...or why certain things do not? Consider t he Enneagram; an ancient personality type system created by early Church fathers & mothers with an uncanny accuracy in describing how human beings are wired, both positively and negatively. 

In this formation series, we peek inside each of the 9 Enneagram archetypal human character structures that we naturally gravitate toward. These 9 types form a sort of color wheel that describes the basic archetypes of humanity's tragic flaws, sin tendencies, primary fears and unconscious needs.

The Enneagram is also a sacred map to our soul and a blueprint for developing character that each of us carries throughout our life, but we can't open it until we discover our type. In this series, not only will you learn more about yourself, but you will also start to see the world through other people's eyes, understanding how and why people think, feel, and act the way they do.  

If you would like to take the typology quiz prior to joining us, you can try it here.

Hey Everyone!

The Hunger Walk was amazing. We had Eucharist with Bishop Wright and then walked with many wonderful people! We hope many of our church parish will join us next year. All ages are welcome!

I have a few reminders for upcoming events:  
  • Sunday, May 5th is our next youth group meeting at 9:45 a.m. Please try to have your children there. We need to run through the plans for Youth Sunday/ Mother's Day. 
  • Sunday, May 12th, Youth Sunday/Mother's Day. I've had so many of your children sign up to serve for our youth Sunday. Please check the calendar.
Our song list for Youth Sunday is:
Something Beautiful by NEEDTOBREATHE
Light the Fire The ZOE Group
10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord) by Matt Redman
Thrive by Casting Crowns

Thank you for your amazing children,
