"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."

This Sunday's Anthem:

God Bless America
A solo by Elizabeth Cochran

"God Bless America" is an  American  patriotic song written by  Irving Berlin during  World War I in 1918 and revised by him in the run up to  World War II in 1938. The later version has notably been recorded by  Kate Smith, becoming her  signature song.

"God Bless America" takes the form of a  prayer (intro lyrics "as we raise our voices, in a solemn prayer") for  God's blessing and peace for the nation ("...stand beside her and guide her through the night...").

The next youth group meeting will be on 
Sunday, July 14th, at 9:30 a.m. 
See you then.

Volunteers Needed!

The mission of the Resurrection Flower Guild is to beautify the altar of the Church and surroundings to the greater glory of God and to make our worship space warm and inviting.  The Flower Guild is composed of several volunteers who select and arrange the flowers.   No prior experience is required.  

Please consider the Flower Guild when discerning your ministry commitments.  What a joyful way to make an impact on your community and to contribute to your faith family.

For more information on how to join this ministry, please contact Jane Maier at 770/841-4066 or

The Guild also depends heavily upon sponsorships from parishioners.   Flowers may be placed on the altar in memory or thanksgiving of a loved one or in celebration of  a special event.   Parishioners are encouraged to contact the Parish Office to make these contributions ( 706/865-9680).
