11:00 Service
May 12, 2019 Sermon
A Special Worship Service
11:00 on May 19th
The tale of Three Trees is an American folk tale that captures the story and message of Jesus in a very meaningful way. On Sunday, May 19, the Children and Youth of Cantaré will present a musical version of this story in 11:00 worship.

You will be touched by the story and the beautiful musical setting. Our young group has worked hard to make this a special Sunday in the life of Senoia UMC. We hope that you will be present for "The Tale of Three Trees".
Dress Rehearsal : All participants in The Tale of Three Trees please meet in the sanctuary this Saturday, May 18th at 4:00pm.
We should finish by 5:00.
Family Mission Day!
All families, no matter the size...8, 6,4, 2 or 1 are needed!

We’ll be going to the I-58 Mission in Senoia. We’ll take a tour of the facility and then also help with needed things at the mission site. 

Meet up at I-58 Mission at 2:00pm and we'll wrap up around 4:00.
