"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

hurts, joys, and interests."

Inda Allen Scholarship Dinner
Sunday, November 18, 6:00 p.m.
Sautee-Nacoochee Center

The community celebration and fundraiser for the Inda Allen Scholarship Fund will be at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 18 (the Sunday before Thanksgiving) at the Sautee-Nacoochee Center.  Everyone is welcome to attend and enjoy a delicious meal, fellowship and entertainment.  Please bring a dish to share.

This annual event is jointly sponsored by churches in the Sautee-Nacoochee area:  Nacoochee United Methodist, Nacoochee Presbyterian, Resurrection Episcopal and Bean Creek Missionary Baptist.  Fr. Scott is a member of the Scholarship Advisory Board.

Inda Allen was a high school junior when she died in 1987 of a blood clot; the White County school system did not desegregate its bus system until 1990.  As a resident of the historically African-American neighborhood of Bean Creek, Inda was a scholar, athlete, fashion model and soul-stirring vocalist, but also a symbol of hope.

The Inda Allen Scholarship is an annual minority student scholarship for graduating African-American students at White County High School.  The scholarships are awarded to qualified black students for tuition and/or expenses at colleges or technical schools.

On this night of fellowship, contributions will benefit the Scholarship Fund, which has awarded nearly 40 educational scholarships to African-American students since 1988.

Resurrection Episcopal is proud to contribute to the scholarship and pleased to encouraged continuing support of the educational aspirations of African-Americans with historical ties to the Bean Creek Community.

Inda Allen - a beautiful memory that still lights the way, today and tomorrow.

Resurrection will again be supporting the annual White County White Christmas Project (aka Angel Tree) this holiday season. B eginning Sunday, 11/18, we will have angels on the tree in the nave for selecting boys and girls of various ages with their gift wishes. 

Participating shoppers will have until December 9 to shop for their angel(s).  All bags are due back on that Sunday. We will collect them and take them to the collection point.

Please consider supporting this very special ministry/outreach opportunity again this year.  May the spirit of Christmas be alive in our hearts as we  bring cheer to those less fortunate then ourselves!

For additional information, please contact 
Paul or Cynthia Kimball at 706-878-1831.   

This Sunday's Anthem:

Ave Verum Corpus
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Ave verum corpus,
Natum de Maria virgine;
Vere passum immolatum
In crucis pro homine.
Cuius latus perforatum
Unda fluxit et sanguine.
Esto nobis praegustatum
In mortis examine.
Hail, true body,
Born of the virgin Mary;
Who has truly suffered, slaughtered
On the Cross for humanity.
Whose side was pierced,
Pouring out water and blood.
Be a foretaste for us
During our ordeal of death.
