Prayer Request

Carol Pirie’s daughter-in-law Trista LaPrade is in the hospital being monitored for pregnancy complications. Carol is well and is in Henderson, NC caring for the children. Please pray for Trista and the baby.


This Sunday is Mother’s Day and during our virtual service we will be honoring our mothers. Please send a video telling us why you love your mom or why your mom is awesome! You can can also send a picture of you and your mom – adults and campus too – not just kids! 
If you don’t want to make a video, that is okay…please just shoot Adam some pics of you and your mom or kids with their mom (Dads – you may need to help!). 
Please send your videos and/or pictures to Adam Ghafourian by the end of the day on Wednesday, May 6th so he has time to make an epic video!  Adam’s email is adamghafourian@gmail.com
Please video horizontally with phones. Make sure voices are clear and strong and lighting is good (so we can see faces).

An Opportunity to Help our Overseas Churches

Our brothers and sisters in our four churches in Pakistan could use help if you are able. Because they are Christian, they get only the lowest paying jobs. They are poor by Pakistani standards yet their faith is amazing! Because of the virus, no one has been able to work for a month and rent is due. Any amount given will go a long way. Their gratitude will be huge.
Checks may be made out to: Southeast Asia Mission Society (Tax deductible donation)
Mail checks to: Mollie Mostert, 245 Holmes, Athens, GA 30606
