  • Sunday School resumes for all classes
  • Promotion Sunday for Children and Youth
  • Inflatables for children during Sunday School (see the Children’s Newsletter for more information)

In memory of Mr. Wayne Mosely by Mrs. Celeta Cavender.


ANNOUNCEMENTS

Our Sympathy to the family of Wayne Mosely.

Visitation will take place on Wednesday, July 21 from 5-7 pm at Almon Funeral Home. The funeral will be Thursday at 2 pm at the church.

Feeding Families West Georgia is growing! We have reached out to 5 schools in Carroll County who have all said yes to our weekend backpack program. The schools we plan to serve this year are Carrollton Elementary, Carrollton Upper Elementary, Central Middle, Sharps Creek Elementary, and Whitesburg Elementary. 

We need volunteers to help us pack food bags and to deliver them to our schools. This happens on every Thursday that schools are in session. We pack in a room that has been graciously given to us to use by First Baptist Church and we begin packing at 9:00am. It takes about 1.5-2 hrs to complete the number of bags for the week. Delivery begins around 10-10:30 and usually takes no more than one hour.

If you have time to volunteer once, once a month, or every other week, we would love to have you join us!
