Join us this month for our sermon series "Living a Life of Faith, Step by Step" as we look back on our earliest encounters with Jesus. ("Getting Your Stride" - Sept. 15) and what lies ahead ("Taking Your Rest" - Sept. 22). In 1 John 2:12-14, the apostle writes to "little children," those new to the faith; "young people," those mature in the faith; and "fathers," men and women who have given their lives to the faith and wonder "what now?" Each sermon in the series will offer insights and inspiration for people of all ages and at all stages of spiritual growth and faith. Come and discover what God wishes to say to you through the writings of the Apostle John and the Apostle Paul, and bring a friend!
We are now collecting gently used items for the rummage sale. You may drop off the items Sunday following service until 1:30pm, or during the week by appointment by calling Bonnie at 706-936-0327. We will be setting up Sept. 29-Oct. 1. Any and all help would be appreciated. Youth who work will get credit that goes towards Estes next summer. Clean up begins at 1pm on Oct. 5. The actual sale is Oct. 2 (9am-6pm), Oct. 3 (9am-5pm), Oct. 4 (9am-5pm), & Oct. 5 (8am-1pm) and it's $1 sack day. All proceeds go towards the youth group. We also need paper and plastic sacks to help people carry the items home.
Jesus calls us to be peacemakers. The Peace & Global Witness Offering supports the PC(USA)’s efforts to engage in peacemaking at all levels of the church’s life and enables the church to promote the peace of Christ by addressing systems of injustice and allows us to strengthen peace-building efforts around the world and locally by bringing witness through Christ. The ushers will provide envelopes for this collection on World Communion Sunday, October 6, 2019.
LOGOS, our Wednesday night program, starts on October 9 at 5pm for all ages. Upon arrival, children and youth can do homework or practice their reading to adults. Then from 5:30pm - 7:30pm we have games, dinner and Bible Study. If you would like to join, please register by going to our webpage or picking up a registration form on the credenza and return to it the office.
We are beginning a new Young Adult Sunday School class. They will be meeting on Sunday mornings downstairs, but not every Sunday due to busy schedules. If you are interested, please contact either Laura Gillett (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Bonnie Ratcliff (706-936-0327 or email@example.com).
