Service Opportunity to Support Neighborhood Youth

Amazing Grace has the opportunity to assist Berkmar High school’s varsity football program this year.

We are going to be bringing the Thursday night meal to feed the team on two nights. Our Men’s group is going to pay for the meals and help serve, but we could really use your help in this.

The dates we have scheduled are August 31 (a Thursday) and October 5 (a Thursday). We also plan on working the concession stand on Friday, September 1.

 

Please contact Lee Bennett if you have any questions or would like to join us in this service project.

God bless,

Lee Bennett

Remodel Updates

Final remodel improvements on the Restrooms, Nursery & Offices are almost complete.  One of the improvements was motion-detected sensors were installed on all lights. What this means is when you enter any of these rooms, lights will be activated immediately and will remain on for as long as you are in one of these rooms or until several minutes after you leave the room.  If you want to operate the lights to turn them off manually, simply press the round button (as shown in this picture) below the sensor. This is optional, otherwise the lights will turn off by themselves, once no motion is detected in the room. Thank you for your patience during this time of improvement!

Children of all ages are welcome and Adult volunteers are requested for the new session of Homework Help this Wednesday, August 23, @ 5:30 pm in the Fellowship Hall.  For more details or questions, please contact Judie Lee at jh_lee@bellsouth.net.

Aug 27-Town Hall, Rally and Service Day, Potluck!

 

After 10 AM service on Aug 27, everyone is invited to a town hall meeting where we will have an open forum to discuss our transition and where we are in the call process.  We will also take this opportunity to hold our annual Rally Day for people to find out more about some the ministries at AGLC, with a chance to sign up to get involved.

 

Following the town hall meeting, we will have a day of service at Amazing Grace.  As a congregation, we will come together to complete service projects at and around our facility. Projects currently planned include re-painting the lines in parking lot and painting lawn “heart signs.” Then, at 2:00 (or when the projects are completed, whichever comes first) it is our end of the summer cookout party.  Hamburgers, hotdogs and buns will be provided–just bring your favorite side to share.
