Brothers and sisters in Christ, as we begin the season of Pentecost, I write to make an announcement regarding our common life.
Children and Youth Events
We are excited to be partnering with First Presbyterian Church's summer seminarian to provide activities for our children and youth.
Our youth are invited to join in these activities:
Tuesday, June 22 at 4:30 PM: Popsicles and Paint, suitable for elementary-aged children
Sunday, June 27 at 5:30 PM: Hidden Figures Movie Viewing, this is an intergenerational event. There will be a "Pajama Night" for children too young to sit for a movie.
Please contact Courtney Pittman (770-786-7321) if you have any questions.
Wednesday Morning Prayer
Wednesday Morning Prayer is designed for those who want a quiet contemplative prayer time, prayer for specific needs, and prayer for healing. It will be take place in the Sanctuary to give adequate space for social distancing, so please also follow all Sunday protocols.
This service will be held from 11:15 til noon each Wednesday starting June 16th through August 4th. See you in the Sanctuary!
I have had three outings meeting congregants in their homes and sharing food, fun and pie!! Thank you for the continuous invitations! I am looking forward to spending more time with you all.
News From Rio
Our sister church in Rio, St. Luke's Episcopal, often sends more prayer requests than what is included on Sunday mornings. So that you know more about what trials and tribulations they face and need prayer for, please see the most recent communication for prayer needs.
Fr. Edwin’s 12-week sabbatical is underway! This time of rejuvenation and reflection began after our service on May 9; Fr. Edwin will rejoin us on Sunday, August 8.
A document addressing common questions has been prepared to help explain a clergy sabbatical and provide answers to all sorts of questions. Be sure to have a look!
