This is from Kathy Umberger:
We are having Ann Carey from HomeAid Atlanta in the service Sunday the 28th to tell a little about HomeAid and talk about our work day for the money we raised. We will also present her with a large cardboard check for a photo shoot so we encourage everyone to be there Sunday...and bring a friend or neighbor.

Hey everyone,

Just a quick reminder:

Next week my family and I will be out of town. We are leaving this Saturday in the AM.

Of course, Nathan Holmes, our Youth Minister, will be bringing the message this Sunday. Let's pray that he stays healthy this year--but for him and his family, not just for our own sake!

This means, however, that we will need to cancel the Wednesday Night Bible Study next Wednesday, the 24th of June.

We will be back Sunday the 28th!




We recently sent out a blog post about the Restoration concert coming up. We've also posted a widget on the website so people can listen to a sample of Restoration's music.

They can also listen in here on this post:

Prayer Request

Just got this heart-rending request from Lindsey Holmes:

I would REALLY appreciate it if you could add this to our ongoing prayer list and the blog. I know we have some pretty amazing prayer warriors and this family would really appreciate to just be bathed in prayer. They are some friends of ours from our home church.
This is an email sent out by the woman's parents....

Thanks a million,


To our family and friends,

Thank you to all of you who have been praying for our daughter Casey. We ask you to keep the prayers coming because we have received very grim news regarding her condition. The final pathology report indicated that she does not have the type cancer they originally thought, but has metastatic melanoma. This is by far the worse case scenario as far as types of cancer she could have. The tumor was not the primary cancer site, so now the search begins for where the primary is located. She had her first visit with the oncologist yesterday and he could not locate any site on her skin, so she went for two scans today and will have another on Tuesday. The survival rate for this type of cancer in women 25-35 is very slim and we could be looking at a few months or a few years. Once she has finished with all the follow-up appointments we will know more about treatment options, and will keep you informed.

We are, of course, asking the Lord to provide a miracle so that our two granddaughters, Grace (7) and Anabel (4) will not have to grow up without their mother, and we will not have to face the unthinkable of losing our only child. Casey has asked that if God does not choose to give us a miracle, she would ask that everyone pray for years rather than months. She wants to live long enough for Anabel to remember her.

At this point we are just trying to digest the information, so would ask that you allow Casey and Michael time to do that. Also, the children do not know what is going on yet, so pray for wisdom about what and when to try and explain to them what is going on. We also ask for strength for all of us as this will be a difficult journey for everyone.

So where do we go from here.....would you believe Disney World. Casey is determined that we follow through with a long awaited and much anticipated trip leaving on next Friday (June 19). Thankfully, both Michael's mother and I were planning to go along, so we will be able to help with the children. Casey wants to make this a trip the girls will remember for the rest of their lives, so we are putting on our happy faces and our Mickey ears and forging ahead as if everything was normal.

Please keep us in your prayers. Casey's future is totally in His hands now. Thank you, Tim and Toni

Bible Study June 10 TIME CHANGE

Hey gang,

I meant to get this out before now, but we've had a slight scheduling conflict tonight for Bible study. We're moving it to 8:00 rather than 7:00.

Sorry so late getting it out!

Coffee and Clean-up

I was working with the toddlers I didn't know if there was an announcement about coffee and cleaning up.
There is NO ONE signed up for June or July to make coffee on Sundays or to pick up and empty trash. It can be a team...and it doesn't have to be the same person to do both.
Kathy Umberger organizes the volunteers, so please contact her if you can help. THANKS!
