LADIES TEA WAS FUN, FELLOWSHIP, GREAT FOOD AND IN MEMORIAM

On Saturday, the annual Ladies Tea was a sight to behold!  The beautifully decorated tables, great food and the wonderful music and song from Little Jan Buchner all proved to be a blessed event.  We celebrated in memory of Jewell Maddox, our dear friend and servant, who originated the event several years ago.

 

SUNDAY WITH THE GOFFS

We were so blessed by the Goffs and their inspiring music and Dr. Goff’s wonderful message on Calvary Sunday.   We hope that they will be able to visit with us again next year!  If you want to see them again soon, they will be singing at the Georgia Mountain Fair in Hiawassee in July.

 

VBS – Donations and Help Needed

There will be a Vacation Bible School meeting May 24th at 4:30. Also, we are asking the congregation to please observe the VBS bulletin board in the Fellowship Hall to see if there are any items that VBS needs that you can provide by either donating or loaning to VBS. Three teachers and other volunteers for VBS are still needed!
  

MEMORIAL SERVICE FOR JEWELL MADDOX

Plans have been made for this service to be held on June 3rd in the Sanctuary at 11:00.  She planned every detail to honor the Lord and show appreciation to the Church.  We honor Doris and Clarence Blalock for their devoted care of her for the past two months.

 

PRAYER MEETING/BIBLE STUDY AT 6:00 P.M. WEDNESDAY

We will be starting prayer meeting/Bible study at 6:00 instead of 6:30 this Wednesday, May 17th.  Afterwards, we will need as many men and women as possible to help set up tables for the ladies’ tea which will be on Saturday.  (There will be no choir practice after Bible study.)

  

JOY CLUB TRIP

On May 23rd the JOY Club will be taking a trip to the Tellus Science Museum in Cartersville. The bus will leave the church parking lot at 9:00 a.m.  We will go to the museum first, and then to lunch at Johnny Mitchell’s Barbeque.

In addition to exhibits that some people may have already seen at the museum, they also have the planetarium shows which change from time to time. Please confirm by phone 706-946-4622, in person at church or email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. The cost is $12 per person.

 

MEN’S BROTHERHOOD BREAKFAST MEETING ON SATURDAY MAY 20TH.

The Men’s Brotherhood normally will meet on 4th Saturdays at 9:00 for breakfast at the church.  However, Saturday’s meeting will be at the Bumble Bee restaurant in Blue Ridge (FREE breakfast for the men) at 9:00 a.m.  We hope to see you there for great fellowship and discussions on serving the church and leading other men to Christ!

WHEN I SAY I’M A CHRISTIAN by Carol Wimmer

When I say, "I am a Christian"

I'm not shouting, "I’ve been saved!"
I'm whispering, "I was lost!
That's why I chose this way".

When I say, "I am a Christian"

I don't speak with human pride
I'm confessing that I stumble -
Needing God to be my guide

When I say, "I am a Christian"

I'm not trying to be strong
I'm professing that I'm weak
And pray for strength to carry on.

When I say, "I am a Christian"

I'm not bragging of success
I'm admitting that I've failed
And cannot ever pay the debt.

When I say, "I am a Christian"

I don't think I know it all
I submit to my confusion
Asking humbly to be taught.

When I say, "I am a Christian"

I'm not claiming to be perfect
My flaws are all too visible
But God believes I'm worth it.

When I say, "I am a Christian"

I still feel the sting of pain
I have my share of heartache,
Which is why I seek His name.

When I say, "I am a Christian"

I do not wish to judge
I have no authority...
I only know I'm loved
