Good Morning,

Even though our worship space was changed yesterday due to the work going on in the Sanctuary we still worshipped our Lord and honored our Mother’s and those mother figures in our lives. A big thanks goes out to Mike Johnson who presented the children’s sermon yesterday. He did a fantastic job!

We will continue to worship in the Social Hall over the next few weeks.

This Sunday will be our last Coffee Fellowship/Breakfast for the summer. We plan to resume around Labor Day.

At 4:00 pm on Sunday there will be a Special Called South Georgia Annual Conference with the purpose of approving the disaffiliation of 193 churches. This will be a virtual conference that you can watch by going to the Conference website, and following the prompts.

Pentecost Sunday is May 26th and everyone is encouraged to wear red which will be the color of the day.
