Twelfth Sunday After Pentecost
August 12, 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."

New Year Begins in September!

I will be offering a second year beginning in September called ACTS (Adult Christian Theological Study). The group will meet Wednesday evenings at 6:00 for approximately 90 minutes for the school calendar year, taking the same days and weeks off as the school calendar. This group this year will do an in-depth exploration of the New Testament and Theology, coupled with an intimate small group supportive learning environment. 

The only costs will be for the text books, which will total less than $40. 

I hope that the outcome of this group will be to theologically educate individuals properly who can think theologically about today's challenges of loving God and neighbor.

The only requirements to be part of this group is that you seek Christian maturity, have an open mind for inquisitive learning, an open heart for mutual group peer support, and a willingness to regularly attend the agreed-upon meetings for the school year.

If you are interested in this group, please reply to me,

The Night the Lights Went Out . . . During Choir Practice

TIME FLIES, and yes . . . it's time again to start thinking about the annual Women's Retreat. 

As last year, the retreat will be held at the Bishop's Retreat Center at Camp Mikell, Toccoa, GA.  The cost for great food, great programming, optional crafts, hiking, lots of free time and loads of great company is $170.  Think about bringing a new or old friend along.

If you have questions or some ideas about new activities and would like to help, please contact Linda Perry at 678-699-7436 or

Sign-up sheets will be posted in the Narthex soon.

New Choir Season has begun!  
Choir practice is on Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m.
We are seeking new members, so please come and h elp us make a joyful noise!

We are in need of volunteers to serve during our worship services, especially ushers for the 10:30 service, crucifers for the 8:15 service and Community of Hope Lay Eucharistic Visitors.  If you feel called to serve, please contact the parish office.
