Mid-Week Prayer Group: You are invited to join us this Wednesday evening at 6 p.m. in the Conference Room. We will meet each week to come together in prayer for individuals, our church, our community and our world. If you have questions, please contact Ann Cook.

Bus Drivers Needed: The Go-Go’s and the youth rely on the buses to get us to our activities but are of no use to us without a driver. We need to compile a small list of eligible drivers so we won’t have to ask the same one over and over. The large bus requires a driver with a CDL license. The small bus can be driven by most anyone who has been approved by our Insurance carrier.

The next Sew Comfy sessions will be November 7th at 6:30 pm in the  Adult Sunday School wing.  Please join us for fun fellowship while we make mastectomy pillows for those recovering from cancer surgery.  No sewing skills needed. Monetary donations for supplies also needed.  Contact Debra Brown or Lynn Lowrey for more information.

New Wednesday Night Adult Bible Study led by Eddy Smith Continues next week.  

Save the date: Tuesday (October 17) Join us for a 4-week study of The Go Guide: 10 Steps for Innovations in Ministry from Luke 10 with co-author Rev. Donna S. Mote, PhD. In ten brief chapters, Bishop Rober C. Wright and Missioner Donna S. Mote excavate and examine ten principles for innovations in ministry drawn from the Gospel of Luke Chapter 10 that address questions for the Church going into the world. We challenge ourselves and the world to love like Jesus as we worship joyfully, serve compassionately, and grow spiritually. 

Will be celebrating Children’s Sabbath on Sunday, October 22, at both 8:30 and 11:00 services. The children (pre-K through 5th grade) will lead worship for us that day. This is a very special opportunity for the McKids, and we hope you can all be here to worship with them!

Presbyterian Women Local Mission Opportunity: During the Month of October, PW will be collecting the following items to support elderly men and women living at Presbyterian Homes and Villages in the Metro Atlanta Area: Toothpaste and Toothbrushes, Body Wash and Shampoo, Spray Deodorant. Please place your donations in the collection box near the anchor.

Fall Local Missions Emphasis Crosswalk Ministries goes “behind the razor wire” to live out Jesus’ command to visit and minister to those in prison.  Each month, a team visits 9 of Georgia’s youth detention facilities to fellowship, worship, and celebrate birthdays with incarcerated youth.  These young people are hungry for a listening ear, a word of hope, and expressions of God’s love.  Many also see their name on a birthday cake for the very first time. The Local Missions Committee would like to invite you to bring your quarters (and any other donations) to church each Sunday and Wednesday during October to support this ministry to “the least of these.” If you would like to learn more about how to contribute or be a part of Crosswalk Ministries’ efforts, please speak with Doris Griffin.
