— Attention all writers: The theme for our 2018 Advent Devotional is “The Gift of Hope.” Writers of daily devotionals are invited to select a passage and share your personal reflection of faith based on scripture in a one page missive that includes the scriptural passage and a brief prayer. This is a beautiful Christmas tradition for our congregation, and you will be offering a gift of love to your fellow covenant members. Sign-ups begin October 1, and devotions are due by November 1. Contact Carolyn Waters, (678-522-3154) to reserve a date and scripture, or to request additional information.
— Spunky Spirits will meet on Thursday, October 11, in the library at 11AM, followed by a potluck lunch. They are studying the second lesson in the Jesus Calling Study Series.
— If you missed your chance to have your directory photo taken this Spring, recently joined our family as a Covenant Partner, or if you just want to have your photo retaken, Lifetouch will join us again for another round of Directory Photos on Saturday, October 27 from 12-6PM. All participating families will receive a complimentary 8×10 photo. Also, all families from this and past sessions who have had a photo taken will receive a revised edition of our Church Directory.

— We are going to replace the landscaping at the entrance of the church with brick pavers and elegant design. Individual pavers can be purchased as a memorial with your family’s name on it. This is the Eagle Project for Christopher Arcuragi. To purchase a memorial brick please contact the church or Christopher Arcuragi outside our services. Purchases can be made in check or cash, and each brick is $100. Currently, we are only gathering the names of members interested, and will announce when we will begin collecting money soon.
