Shine A Light Sandwich Making

Tameka Rish was the speaker for the evening and shared her personal story of entrapment.  Tameka is Vice President of Corporate Partnership for AMBSE.  She enters her 16th season in the National Football League and her 14th with the Falcons.  Tameka serves on the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Sports Network Board and focuses on humanitarian efforts to fight human trafficking.  St. Patrick's lunch making volunteers listened intently to our speaker and  asked many questions during the Q&A. Two hundred lunches were packed and bags were beautifully decorated by our members over a two week period.  This effort sends a personal message to at risk kids that we care.


Blessing of the Backpacks


Do You Have A Penchant for Plants?

There are living plants located in many classrooms around the church that need loving attention. They need to be watered and rotated regularly. If you feel called to this ministry, please contact Cowen Harter at                                                                          

Do You Need a Name Tag?

If you do not have a name tag, please sign your name on the sign-up sheet located on the information table in the narthex. Name tags are made weekly and are clipped to the screen. They  are organized by the first letter of your last name. Please don't forget to return your name tag to the screen before you leave.
