Easter Weekend

Mission Farms Workday

This summer the Journey Student Ministry has big plans to go back to camp at Mission Farms in Madison! We are asking all students who are able to come and help out at a work day to help get things ready for the summer at Mission Farms to plan on helping out on Sunday, April 18th after church. There will be a cookout during this time as well. You can either pick your student up from Missions Farms in Madison when it is over, or we can find a good meeting spot in town.

Plant Fundraiser

It might seem like just a plant to you, but when you purchase one from the youth the next couple of months, all profit goes directly to help the youth go to New Orleans on their summer mission trip! Anything that is earned over that amount will then be applied to their spiritual formation at summer camp! What better cause can you think of to buy a beautiful plant for your flower or vegetable garden?
For more information, please see Cassie Butts or text her at 770-634-3020.

Bread, Oxford Update

As most of you know, Bead, Oxford is a ministry that is reaching college students who come from all over the world. They are stationed in the town of Oxford at Emory College, and their mission is to take these students under their wing and share the love of Jesus Christ.
The college is now back up and running, and Bread has a great mission to reach these students for Christ.
Thanks to everyone who has given a donation to the food drive that will help Bread feed the students in the coming months. Please be in prayer for Brooke Vore, the campus Bread Ministry Director, and the others who are on her team. Please pray for the students to be open to the Gospel of Jesus. Below are some pictures of them eating in their new outdoor area.
