Sunday, August 31 there will be two 11:00 services. One will be held as usual, in our Sanctuary. The other is our annual Gather at the River service held at Galt's Ferry Landing, Lake Allatoona. Whether you choose to worship inside the church or in the great outdoors, please be sure to join us for a picnic at the lake starting at 1:00. The main course will be provided, but help is needed for sides, desserts, and gallon drinks. A head count is needed to plan for the fried chicken, so please contact the church office at 770-928-0050 or firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP to the picnic.
Where Can We Worship on August 31st?
This year there are two 11:00 services being held. Our Faith Traditions service will be held as usual in the Sanctuary. If you would like to Gather at the River for worship, a service will be offered at the Galts Ferry picnic pavilion at Lake Allatoona. Worship begins at 11:00 so please be there at 10:00 to grab a seat at the picnic tables or to set up your chairs.
Will there be a Crossfire Service or Sunday School on August 31st?
There will not be the 9:30 Crossfire Service or Sunday School classes. Please plan to attend either of the 11:00 services listed above and then make plans to spend a fun day at the lake!
Can I be baptized in the lake?
Yes! If you feel your heart being called for baptism, you can let Pastor Bill know at any time. This is also an opportunity to remember and celebrate your baptism in the waters. Bring a change of clothes if you plan on going in.
What should I bring to the lake?
There are picnic tables, but feel free to bring a chair or blanket. Sunblock, bug spray, and beach towels are also a good idea. After worship and our picnic, you are invited to stay and play. Bring your frisbee, float, or boat!
What is there to do at Galts Ferry?
