We are looking for one or more people to take over the Baptismal Banner Ministry. Jackie Rager has been making the banners for infant baptisms for many years (thank you Jackie!!) and now she must pass this on to someone else as she and her husband David are moving to Cobb County in July to be closer to David’s work.  Jackie has a box with all the materials, instructions and a sample banner.  Please consider taking on this rewarding and fun ministry.  Please contact the church office if you are interested @ 770-381-1293 or office@tisgrace.org or talk with either Pastor Scott or Tracie Crowe in person.

Helping Those Who Helped Us

Help

 

The body of Christ is bigger than any one church, and when we needed to raise funds for the Palma family, our sisters and brothers at First Fellowship Baptist Church in Norcross helped out. Now they are inviting us to help them by attending their BBQ fundraiser on Friday June 16 from noon-6:00 p.m. Lunches and dinners are both $10, and includes chicken and two sides. Even more important, though, is that we share God’s love with them as they shared it with us. To place an order in advance, call 770-899-9826.
