Eleventh Sunday After Pentecost
August 5, 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."

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 lindaamidonperry@gmail.com.

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