With periodic Family Fun Night’s and special events like our Advent Celebration before Christmas and an Egg-stravaganza egg hunt the Sunday before Easter, we try to make sure our children know that their church cares about them and that being a part of a community of faith is part of being a person of faith. Our largest children’s fellowship activity is La Fiesta in the Park, shared with Los Niños Primero. It includes Latin American food, games, inflatables, a petting zoo, face painting, lots of musical entertainment.
Our Youth enjoy fun activities like paintball and mall scavenger hunts on Sundays as a group, as well as eating and talking together in order to deepen their relationships with one another while learning about our faith and working to serve others.
Adult and Intergenerational Fellowship
Quarterly 10:00am brunches on Visitor Sundays, a pancake supper before our Ash Wednesday service, decorating the sanctuary for Christmas with a meal afterward, picnic lunches at the beginning and end of summer, congregational retreats to the Calvin Center and Hike Inn, and a Blessing of the Animals service are just some of the ways that we enjoy getting together to foster meaningful relationships within our congregation. Our Senior Adults have Saturday lunches throughout the year and take trips to places like Gibbs Gardens, Booth Western Art Museum, Tellus Science Museum, Atlanta Botanical Gardens, and Braves baseball. Many members also serve on the Prayer Chain and the Congregational Care Ministry Team to provide spiritual and practical support within our family of faith.
Mission Statement of Presbyterian Women:
Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ, empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves to nurture our faith through prayer and Bible study, to support the mission of the church worldwide, to work for justice and peace, and to build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom.
You can come to one meeting or all of them, because all Bible studies are independent. We have three separate group meetings in order to suit your many needs and different time schedules, which include:
The Day Circle
The Day Service meets on the second Tuesday of every month, September through June, from 10:00 a.m. until noon at the church. We have refreshments, a Bible study, and fellowship. We have luncheons three times a year. Childcare is provided.
The Sunday Circle
The Sunday Circle meets on the second Sunday of every month, September through June, right after the 11:00 service. We have a Bible study and fellowship. Childcare is provided with advance notice.
The Book Circle
The Book Circle meets on the second Friday of every month, September through June, from 10:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. at the church. We review current fiction and, sometimes, nonfiction each month, and you do not even have to read the books ahead of time to have a great time and learn! Childcare is provided.
In addition to study and fellowship, Presbyterian Women offers aid and comfort to those in need both locally and abroad through different missions and the Community Assistance Center. As a group we are able to make a difference in this world, while, at the same time, supporting one another through life’s journey. Won’t you join us?
