Getting Ready for The Big Invite.
More Guest Than Ever For Easter

Opportunity Knocks, Will You Answer? We are just over six weeks away from the number one attended Sunday of the church year. Few times exist in days like these where going to church is “the thing to do.” But Easter Sunday is still one of those times. We are in the midst of an exciting campaign with over 840 other churches across the state of Georgia to invite 1,000,000 people to church for Easter Sunday services. Two weeks ago, we passed out the 7x7 cards to everyone. If you have not yet received one, please make sure you get one this weekend. It provides space to write down seven names of people that you can pray for and invite to church on Easter Sunday. These don’t even necessarily have to be unsaved or unchurched people. There are a number of people who love Jesus, but for one reason or another, don’t attend church regularly. This weekend, we are providing each Sunday School class with rosters of our church members. Some, we haven’t seen in a while. Why not make them one of your seven? Regardless of who ends up on your list, it is a great opportunity for all!

Come and join us Sundays for Sunday School at 9:45 and Worship starting at 11 o'clock. We also have a Sunday Night Service starting at 6:00 PM. Just remember this, we are a loving family of faith united in our pursuit to be followers of Jesus Christ. You are welcome here anytime.
