FOR EVERYONE:

Sunday School Class to Begin

On Sunday, September 14, a new book study will begin in the Friendship Room during the Sunday school hour. Join us as we begin a study of Marcus Borg's "Speaking Christian: Why Christian Words Have Lost Their Meaning and Power-And How They Can Be Restored." Come join us as we look at the words that share our belief and how they have been distorted and how we can reclaim them. The class plans to meet on an every-other-week basis. All are welcome.

Congregation Children of Israel, our local Jewish synagogue, is hosting a public lecture on Genesis on Thursday, September 18 from 7-8 p.m. Professor Baruch Halpern,  Professor of Jewish Studies at the University of Georgia, will be lecturing. The public is welcome. Tara plans to attend if you would like to join her, just call the church office. 


 

Report of Congregational Meeting:

On August 17, 2014 a called congregational meeting was held for the purposes of determining pastoral leadership for the future. After a unanimous vote, the church agreed to call and install the Reverend Tara Bulger as our next pastor. This was only one step in the process that leads to installation. Next, the Presbytery's Committee on Ministry must approve the request in a September meeting and then the Northeast Georgia Presbytery will vote to approve the request in October. If the way be clear, the installation would take place in January. Prayers are appreciated as this process moves forward!
