MISSION PROJECT FOR LENT
Collecting Coins for UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief, the disaster relief agency of the UMC). Each family may pick up a Lenten Coin Calendar and coin box in the Welcome Center. You can follow the calendar and give coins each day, or spare change as it comes in, or make on donation with bills or a check. We’ll turn in our donations on Easter Sunday
Prayer Networking/Caring Ministry
Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. James 5:13-14
If you have a need for special prayer, please call Jennifer Wisnewski at 404-226-0023.
If you would like to be part of this “CHAIN” call Jennifer or the Church Office at 770-844-7095 and your name will be added to the list.
The Pleasant Grove UMC Altar Guild is a Service Ministry. The Guild’s purpose is to provide the best possible environment for our congregation’s worship of God. This committee works closely with the Pastor and the Worship Committee to provide visual elements which reflect the liturgical season.
The space to the right of the Altar Table is designated as a place of honor and is important to us. If you would like to help us celebrate and remember, or honor someone or an event, we welcome your contribution. Please call our church secretary, Diane, to add your name to the altar calendar. A reminder is that flowers must be fresh, however they do not have to be from a florist.
Beth Blalock and Mary Stark, co-chairs
