Seventh Sunday After Epiphany
February 19, 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."

Resurrection Friends,

For the last ten years, I have been amazed at the pouring out of love, thoughtfulness, and support the people of this church exhibit. I praise God for leading Morris and I to Resurrection. He knew exactly where we belonged. Thank You to everyone who participated in Morris's Memorial service and reception. Both were a perfect way to celebrate a wonderful person's life. I am so blessed to have each of you in my life and thus, I am extending vast gratitude to you all from the bottom of my heart. Thank you.

In Christ's Love,

Hiking the Appalachian Trail

This past Valentine's Day, Larry and Kathy Holbrook's granddaughter, Olivia, started off from Springer Mt. on her solo thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail. Olivia plans to complete the 2,108.5 mi. trek from Springer Mt., Ga., to Mt. Katahdin, Maine, in six months. Olivia is 18 and chose to take a "gap year" after graduating from Dunwoody High last year in order to earn money and plan her hike this spring and summer. She was the 67th person this year to sign the thru-hike register and  start at Amicalola State Park on Tuesday morning. She will enroll at Ga. Tech upon completion of the trail in September.

Parish Hall Building Update
The sheetrock is up . . .

.  . . and so is the kitchen ceiling!

And the wall separating the old parish hall from the new parish hall is down!

A message from Joe Cash re: the Men's Group

As the Men's Group is assessing where we want to go from here, we are going to cancel on our February meeting.

REMINDER:  Please return your e-mail questionnaire. If you did not receive one or if you would prefer a hard copy, contact Joe Cash.
