Church Work Day – Servants Needed
Please plan to serve on Saturday, September 17, from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Annual Church Work Day! Quite a bit of work will be involved, outside and inside, but with lots of people helping, it will be completed quickly and the church will be spring-cleaned for the year.
If you can, bring yard tools (shovels, mulch pitchforks, rakes, wheelbarrows, etc.), as we will be spreading mulch, moving plants and sprucing up the outside of the church. For more information, call the church office at 706.694.8023 or Kirk Satterfield at 706.463.2257. Rain date will be September 24.
