"I am about to do a new thing;
    now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?"

  • The Wednesday 12:15 p.m. service of Holy Eucharist with Healing has transformed into a ministry of healing prayer offered in the Nave on Wednesdays, 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., with our Malachi community (with no 12:15 Eucharist in the Chapel).
  • Beginning tomorrow morning at 7:30 a.m ., we will offer a service of Holy Eucharist with Healing in the chapel. Following the service, those who desire will make the sacred pilgrimage over to  Panera  in Dunwoody for the  eighth sacrament  of a shared cup of coffee.
  • Wednesday evening programming will shift to Thursday evenings beginning tomorrow, January 25, 2018.
