Scripture : I Corinthians 12:1, 4-31 

World Communion Sunday

Rev. Natalie Faulkner

This coming Sunday, October 7, is our Bumper Bag Sunday, when we bring food items for the I-58 Mission.

We received information today that they are in dire need of boxes of macaroni & cheese, canned mixed vegetables, canned black-eye peas, and canned lima beans. When you go shopping or to the store between now and Sunday, won’t you please pick up a few items (or more!) and bring them to church on Sunday?

You can place them in the blue bin in the Fellowship Hall. Each week, a member of our church takes any donated items out to I-58 for distribution to anyone in need. This is a wonderful mission opportunity that we have at church in which we can all participate as we are able.

Thank you so much! Your Missions Team

Help wanted!

The Cancer Support Group of East Coweta meets here at SUMC every fourth Tuesday at 2pm. This group is for anyone in the community who has had cancer, has been a caretaker, or has interest in helping others. This should be a part of our outreach through the Health and Wellness team as a community support group.

We are in need of a fresh start and a new leader . Ivie Bowman has led this group for almost 10 years and is looking to pass its leadership because of her on-going health challenges. If you feel led to lead this group, please call Vicki Sewell at 770-599-6097 or Kimberly Tinsley at 770-599-6151 for more information.
We need you to help this be a success for our children and the community. Save the date, Saturday, October 27, 5-7pm.
Sign-up sheets to help are in the hallway.
In preparation for the Charge Conference, the Church Council will be meeting on October 8, at 7:00pm in the Joy Classroom.
