TWO NEW CLASSES FOR ADULTS THIS FALL
Lectio Divina
Mixed age adults – upstairs in the Benson Building
This new class will provide opportunities to meditate upon Scripture and pray together. We will learn and practice two methods of prayer: Lectio Divina and Centering Prayer. Using Lectio Divina the class will focus & meditate upon a passage of Scripture. The goal of Centering Prayer, a form of silent prayer, is to consent to God’s presence for a period of time. We will use one or both types of prayer each week.
Contact Bobby Evans for more information.

Pastor’s Class
Mixed age adults – upstairs at The Place
This new class is especially for those who are looking to return to Sunday School, those who have never been a part of a Sunday School Class, or those looking for a fresh start. The Fall study will center around the book of Matthew. Contact Joel Snider for more information.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

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!
