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! We learn about Palm Sunday and Jesus entering Jerusalem on the back of a young donkey. This was seen as an act of great humility - Jesus is the prince of peace!
Matthew 21:1-11


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 atkatyemae@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 athollycampbell1@gmail.com.



"The question should not be 'What would Jesus do?' but rather, and more dangerously, 'What would Jesus have me do?'... As Mark Twain is said to have remarked, 'It is not what I don't understand in the Bible that troubles me; it is what is perfectly clear that does 
- Peter J. Gomes
