Beth Waltemath will continue to lead us in a Lenten Series focused on practice-based Christianity by looking at key figures in contemplative Christianity from the Bible, Medieval saints, and contemporary theologians.

We Celebrate Jesus! This Sunday we will study Peter. Peter was a great friend of Jesus', but he was also human and could be scared. God forgives us even when we are afraid to do what's right. Matthew 26:69-75

Bienfait Kinumbe, the father of our refugee family, is seeking employment. His trade is painting, and he has a lot of experience working as a painter in Uganda, where they were in a refugee camp for many years. If anyone in our congregation knows of a company that employs painters, or if someone needs painting done themselves, every dollar will help them. Contact Katye Watts at katyemae@gmail.com.

We are also seeking volunteers to tutor Bienfait on the Georgia Drivers License test. He is most anxious to learn the rules of the road so he can pass his test. Contact Holly Campbell at hollycampbell1@gmail.com.
