Meal Train on Hold Until July for DeLorenzo Family (from Tara Gentry) Hello everyone.
First, I want to first say a big “THANK YOU” for the love and support everyone has given to the DeLorenzo family. The meals have been a tremendous help! After communication with both Mike and Andrea, I was asked to remove the month of May. They asked that we take a break from sending meals until after Andrea’s surgery. Once she has surgery, the DeLorenzo family will need help again. I have posted new dates starting July 21th.
KEEP THE TRAIN GOING! https://mealtrain.com/0onmwv
P.S. Some people have been messaging me through Meal Train and I can not reply back. If you need to contact me, feel free to call / text (404) 421-7924 OR email firstname.lastname@example.org.

On Sunday, April 25th at 11 AM, we will be partnering with our sister churches around Atlanta and the surrounding areas for an All Atlanta/GA Livestream Service!
The worship service will feature a combined worship team with singers and musicians from our various churches, and we’ll have the chance to hear from speakers around the region as well. Our own Kindred Howard will be preaching the message.
Though it will be pre-recorded, we will still be meeting with our Athens Church of Christ family (for those who feel safe participating) to watch in-person, enjoy the fellowship and participate in worship together.
This is sure to be an inspiring time to unite with our brothers and sisters around the Atlanta metro region as we strive through His Spirit to be truly Faithful Together.
We will have our normal kids’ kingdom activities/classes/childcare as well.
Those who are unable to be with us in-person can join with us online.
After a much needed break we are ready to continue with the series “Carry One Another’s Burdens”. The classes will be every two weeks beginning on Saturday morning May 1 from 9:00 am to 11:00 am. There are 7 sessions.This series is a transformation of perspective. In order to carry someone’s burden we must understand it enough to have empathy for them. Our own experience, perception, and biased views can blind us from having this understanding and limit our ability to love someone that is not like us. Jesus told us to bring the nations together in his kingdom. This series will help us do that, to have closer relationships, and much more. If you want to be a part of this next series please reply to this email or contact Terry Morrow at 770-337-4455. It will be a Zoom meeting so you can attend from anywhere you have Internet. Most smart phones can access Zoom through your service provider as well.
Your fellow servants,
Terry & Cricket Morrow
