Over 20 of their songs will be performed on stage, and the Prime Timers will be in for a toe-tapping great time. Tickets are $28; you will also need money for lunch before the play and a light dinner on the way home. Ticket money is due NO LATER THAN MAY 8 so that Pastor Stephen can secure the reservations.

Church Work Day
The Annual Church Work Day will be Saturday, May 6, 8:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. A lot of work is needed, outside and inside, but with lots of people helping, it will go quickly, and the church will be spring-cleaned.
Stairwells will be cleared that day. If you have anything in the stairwells, these items must be removed before May 6, or they will be discarded (due to fire code regulations). For more information, call the church office at 706.694.8023 or Randy Cook, Trustee Chair, at 706.264.3267.
