Dear Member,

         As Ken foster communicated a day or two ago, we will resume worship services on Sunday, June 14, and not on May 24 as previously announced. However, we will do a brief, spoken service of communion in the church parking lot on Sunday, May 24, at 10:00 AM, and that should greatly help see us through. We will send out an email this week with details concerning the service.

         I realize that more than a few of you may be disappointed that we have delayed the resumption or worship services, but safety concerns dictate that we do so. On the other hand, it will only be a week until we see one another on May 24 when we gather in the parking lot and June 14 will be here before you know it. And so, soon, very soon, we will be together again at last!

         In the meantime, we continue with our videos. To view this Sunday’s service, simply click on this link: Https:// .

Concerning announcements…

         We will provide food for Calvary Refuge on Thursday, May 22. Before purchasing any items, please contact Carol Meyer (770-461-3448) to see what is needed so that we avoid duplications.

          Fayette Samaritans is in dire need of food items such as: canned goods (vegetables, fruit, spaghetti, meats, tuna, salmon) cereal; toilet paper; paper towels; and Kleenex. The items can be dropped off at church any weekday between 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM, or contact Sylvia to make alternative drop off agreements. Monetary donations are also very much needed, since shopping for food may be difficult for many people. If you have questions, please contact Sylvia McCullough (770-460-1001).


With regard to our people…

        Once again I’m glad to report that no member of the congregation has contracted the coronavirus.

         We extend the sympathy of the congregation and the strength and hope we share in the resurrection of Christ to Kay Douma and her family upon the death of her sister.

         May the God of hope fill us with all joy and peace in believing that we may abound in hope throughout these days!

Pastor Halenza
