The Day of Pentecost:  Whitsunday
May 20, 2018
"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."

Easton Cain Memorial Scholarship 
Resurrection Preschool would like to establish a yearly scholarship in memory of one of our students who died tragically on January 17, 2017. This scholarship will be awarded to a child who otherwise could not afford to attend Resurrection Preschool. We would like for this to be an ongoing yearly scholarship. The Preschool Board will review each application and make the determination as to which family will be awarded the scholarship. The amount of the scholarship to be given will be based on the availability of funds.

If you would like to make a donation to the scholarship fund, please provide the information below and send with your check to Resurrection Preschool, 1755 Duncan Bridge Road, Sautee, GA 30571.

The annual Men's Fishing Trip this year will be October 4th-7th at Shell Island Fish Camp in St. Mark's, Florida. We have once again been invited to join the men of Annunciation Episcopal Church in Marietta. The total cost of the trip will be $375 plus gear and license.

April 4th marks 50 years since the assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Join the Sunday Christian Formation conversation, "3 Epistles on Race in America," as we explore contemporary racial relationships using writings that, while perhaps lesser known than King's famous "I have a dream" oratory, resonate powerfully today. The video curriculum includes speakers: New York City journalist Errol Louis, New York University professor and poet Fred Moten, and Trinity Church Wall Street Vicar, Phil Jackson. Hear their examinations of three civil rights era letters from Dr. King, James Baldwin, and Thomas Merton, and reflect with your church community.
