Prayer Request

Andrea DeLorenzo was diagnosed with breast cancer the beginning of December. On January 11th, she started chemotherapy and treatment will continue for many months. Please keep Andrea, Mike and their children in your prayers. Cards of encouragement may be sent to 1244 Alcovy Ridge Drive, Loganville, GA 30052. 


The DeLorenzo family need our help!

We can help show our support and love by supplying meals for their 4 children (with ages ranging from 8 to 15). Andrea and Mike are on special diets and do not need assistance with their meals. Since meals are scheduled for every other day, if you are able to provide extras for leftovers it would be appreciated. Feel free to contact Tara Gentry (404-421-7924) if you have any questions or concerns. 

Hello Brothers & Sisters!

Tonight’s midweek message will be broadcast via Facebook and our website at 7:15pm. Tonight’s message: THE SPIRIT OF FIRST FRUITS: BEING OUR BEST FOR GOD!

Also, don’t forget the WOMEN’S PRAYER THIS FRIDAY NIGHT AT 7PM online. Below is the Zoom link to join the women. Meredith Howard will be hosting and facilitating the women’s prayer. 


Passcode: 166240

This Sunday we will have worship service online at 11am. Our campus minister, John Crawford, will be preaching God’s Word. 

Finally, don’t forget that this is a very special weekend, as we remember the life, courage, faith, and impact of one our greatest figures in American history, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Hurry is the great enemy of spiritual life in our day. You must ruthlessly eliminate hurry from your life.”    – Dallas Willard
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble and heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”  Mt 11:28-30
Our world has sped up to a relentless and unbearable pace.  This book explores how Jesus’ yoke is easy and his burden is light. He gives us rest for our souls.  Jesus was never in a hurry and yet he still accomplished God’s will.
This will be a relaxed and fun environment. No pressure! If you haven’t read the chapter, still feel free to join and absorb the conversation. This is a non-stressful way to connect with each other and with Jesus.

Book Information:



Need some help:  I am to make a presentation next month which will include some information about personal fashion styles.  Would you be willing to send me a picture of you dressed in your personal fashion style. Please include the name of the style if you know it, i.e. Sophisticated, Preppy, Geeky, Tomboy, Office, Haute, Modest, etc.  (Bet you didn’t know I was a fashionista! Ha ha).  If not, no worries; just a picture of your style will work.  Trying to gather at least 10 pics by February 5. Send to jeffrorabaugh@gmail.com or text to 706-818-5842. Thanks!
