The Chapel will be open Thursday, May 4, 8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. for the National Day of Prayer, a day set aside by the President for all to pray for our nation, our leaders, our friends, our families and ourselves. This event takes place on the same day all across our nation, and was designated as a day of National Prayer to remind all citizens of the need and the importance of prayer in our nations' daily life. We will have "Prayer Guides" to remind you of topics, scriptures, or thoughts you may want to pray about. Please CLICK HERE to sign up for a time to join us for Prayer!
Bring your blankets and/or lawn chairs!
Join us Friday, May 5 as we travel by bus to visit Liberty Hill UMC in Canton, GA. We will depart from the church at 9:00 a.m. and return around 3:00 p.m. Cost is $10 which includes lunch provided by Provino's Italian Restaurant.
Liberty Hill UMC uniquely holds their services in the Old Cotton Mill, built in 1900. We will have a docent as we learn about Canton and the Cotton Mill. The mill is rich with history and was a thriving enterprise which brought jobs and prosperity to Canton until it closed in 1981.
We also plan on visiting the Old Cherokee County Courthouse, made of native Georgia marble. It has a small museum which has an interactive display of historical characters that guide you through the places and events that shaped their lives. In addition there is a traveling exhibit that focuses on the United States' entry into World War I and Cherokee County's contribution.
Last day for payment is Friday, April 28. Contact Mary Ruffin in the church office, 770-394-0675.
