Dear Member,

The Church Council will make a decision this week about resuming worship services on May 24th and we’ll let you know immediately what the decision is. While many of us certainly hope that we’ll be able to gather again on the 24th, the decision must rest not on what we’d like to do but on what it would be responsible to do and that means considering the latest numbers and best advice of healthcare officials so that we can come together safely.

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

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).

           And of course to all the mothers among us: Happy Mother’s Day!


With regard to our people…

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

May God continue to shepherd us through these days and grace us with the faith that trusts that all shall be well,

Pastor Halenza
