A Word from The Pastor:
Galatians 2:20 - I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
There's not anything I can really add to this! Wow!! That's an all out devotion to Christ!

Food Pantry Clothing Drive
VUMC Food Pantry will be hosting a clothing drive for our Food Pantry Patrons to receive on Wednesday, Nov 8, 2017. As you sort through your fall and winter clothing, hold onto any clothing for infants through adults(male and female). Please no rips or stains. Shoes in good condition are also acceptable.
We will be collecting them in the Gym on Sunday, Nov. 5, 2017 from noon until 5 p.m. Help is also needed during that time to sort the clothes as well as the day of the giveaway - a sign up sheet will be available in the coming weeks.
Our church has the awesome opportunity to be a buddy on the baseball field for kids with special needs through the Miracle League in Rocky Face, October 19 at 6:15 PM. The buddies help the kids run the bases and field the ball. The Miracle Field is located at 1519 Mount Vernon Rd. Rocky Face, GA 30740. If you would like to help please sign up after church in the lobby or text Karen at 678-386-8233.
There will be a “leaf” insert in this week’s bulletin (10/22) where you will be asked to write a particular blessing or praise in your life. Please gently place this leaf on the “Tree of Thanks” at the front of the sanctuary.
Next week, please pick up a leaf from the baskets at the back and front of the church to write your thanks/praises on.
