Dear Member,

         Sunday, June 14th, will be the day, the day we gather again for worship! Please watch for emails detailing our preparations and plans to make it as safe as possible for us to come together. We will not, however, have Sunday School that day as we first want to see how it goes with worship. Also, note that Wednesday Evening Communion services will resume June 17 at 6:30 PM and Bible Study will resume on Thursday, June 18, at 10:00 AM. Needless to say, it will be great to see you again!

         One other thing is that we will continue to do videos since they have proven to be not only a good way for members to stay connected to the congregation but also to reach out to those searching for a church home. We will explore other ways of being and bringing the church to you and others.

Concerning announcements…

         We will provide food for Calvary Refuge on Thursday, June 25. Before purchasing any items, please contact Carol Meyer (770-461-3448) to see what is needed so that we avoid duplications.

           Fayette Samaritans continues to need food items. Most needed items are as follows: canned chicken, dried beans, corn, green beans, mixed vegetables, canned fruit, canned pasta, cereal, Jiffy cornbread mix, and feminine products. They are not accepting clothing at this time.


With regard to our people

         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 Everett & Annette Flanigan upon the death of their nephew.

          Barbara Gordin wishes to thank the congregation for their calls, cards and expressions of sympathy upon the death of her brother.

         May God continue to grant us the good sense and strength to follow the basic practices that have kept us safe and will enable us to soon gather again for worship,

Pastor Halenza
