Spotlight on Ministry
This week the spotlight shines on:
Gail & Bill Chamlee
This couple is the epitome of Southern charm.
You’ll see them regularly as greeters / ushers at the 10:50 Service of Worship. On the first Sunday of each month they cheerfully leave the comfort of their home to unlock the church and make coffee available in time for the 8:30 worshippers, then stay to lock up after the last of our 10:50 worshippers is out the door. They are also providers of continental breakfasts on a regular basis. Bill is an elder of the church having served actively from 1992-1994. If you haven’t had a chance to get to know them, seek them out. Their sweet Georgian accent is like comfort food to the ears. Thank you Gail & Bill for all you do, and thanks to ALL of our Good Shepherd volunteers. We are more effective in “changing lives in Jesus Christ,” because you serve. Keep watching these bulletins. Next week’s spotlight could shine on YOU.

2013 Faith Retreat Weekends

Parents of children ages four and older
We will continue to attend the 9:30 service. The children are dismissed to Sunday School as a group, but are encouraged to sit with their family. If you do not attend the 9:30 service, please leave your child with Terra or other authorized adult who will walk the children to their class when dismissed. We believe this is a great opportunity for your child/children to experience praise and worship as well as connect with their church family.
