Adult Sunday School- Please join us at 9:15 am each Sunday for an interesting and comprehensive journey through the Bible with 30 minute video presentations each followed by a discussion period. This is a great opportunity to visit each book of the Bible in depth. One week does not depend on another, so come whenever you can.

Please remember that we always need supplies for the Church too!
You may bring to Church toiletries, socks, laundry detergent, cleaning supplies, paper towels and anything else you can think of to help the homeless. The shelter has been staying at 25 people which is absolute capacity!
We will as always be donating our second Sunday loose offering to this ministry.
Think about supporting at least one of these ministries while shopping:
Friendship House Homeless Shelter - Constantly in need of cleaning and paper supplies, soap and laundry detergent.
Care Kits - for shelters and police departments. Small toiletry items as well as bandanas and carabiner clips. We will be assembling some kits again in a few weeks.
Sharing Center Food Pantry - Non perishables; also paper products
Aluminum Can Recycling - Bring your crushed aluminum cans to our recycle bin behind the Church. Proceeds go to Messiah Youth projects.
Free Membership to Dog Park
As you may know, my daughter Katherine and I bought Messiah's Peachtree property as the new location for her expanded pet care facility. ( You may have noticed the fencing and the little green building where the pavilion used to be.) As a provision of the sale, Messiah's members get a free membership to the new dog park. (One time $3 fee for the card to open the electronic gate.)
Please e-mail Katherine at
Someone will forward you the documents you need to become a member. If you have any questions, please call All Creatures Short and Tall at 828-837-4390.

Need a Name Tag?
We haven't ordered them in a very long time. If you would like to have one, please respond to this email.
They will be on a board as you enter the Church and if you should leave by the back door (Parish hall), there will be a basket where you can drop them off.
If anyone would be available to meet once a month to help coordinate outreach activities, please email Linda Ray. (Lindaray.firstname.lastname@example.org)
