Immediate prayer request

Ben's friend asked that we get the word out to support this family in crisis.

Colton Norrel, a 3 month old child, is in the hospital with fluid on the brain caused by a brain tumor. Needless to say, his family is devastated. Please pray for this little guy and all the people dedicated to his treatment (family, doctors, nurses and technicians).

Church fun

Just a reminder of a few things:

  1. This is the last Sunday to bring in school supplies for the children in Haiti. For those of you that may not know, Cathy Schmidle goes every year with a group to help out in an orphanage there. We will be collecting more items in the coming months for this mission.
  2. We will be collecting donations for the "Bags of Love" program during the month of July. This mission takes lunches to the children in our county that were on free or reduced lunch. Now that school is out this program intends to fill in the gap. If you'd like to make a monetary donation, just indicate on your check how much is intended to go toward this program. If you'd like to help with the assemblage of the lunches themselves or even help making the deliveries, let Judy Ware know (404-434-8835) and she can guide you.
  3. We will have a guest pianist to lead us in hymns this Sunday. Please welcome Martha Vernon.
  4. The church picnic will be held this Sunday (6/14/2015) beginning at 12:00 pm. The gathering will take place at the home of Jim and Sandi Stahl - 7450 Bronson Way, Cumming (770-597-8237). The church will provide hamburgers, hot dogs, cups, plates, napkins, pastic-ware and drinks. You are asked to bring a side and Bill really, really, really wants you to bring a dessert. :) It would be a good idea to bring a chair as well.
See you on Sunday!
