Want to find out where you can serve in the church? Thinking about joining a community group? Interested in knowing more about our local and global missions initiatives and opportunities to get involved? Then Sunday, August 13th is for you! Stay after church where we miraculously convert our space into a cafeteria/conference center (there will even be childcare and bounce houses in the gym)! There, you’ll be able to find out about all the different things happening at the church and how you can get plugged in. This is our chance, once a year, to come together, as the church, to commit to serve one another and to seek to live in community. Hope to see you there! Oh, and please RSVP on the City so we know how much food to get (Yep! Free lunch! Everything provided!).
Whether this is your first retreat or you're a seasoned veteran, this is one experience you won't want to miss! This year, the youth will be renting a house on Lake Lanier to serve as a meeting space, and where the ladies will be staying. The guys will be camping at nearby Toto Creek. The cost of this year's retreat is $130 per student. All money is due by May 21st. Please contact Michael Panyard with any questions or for scholarship info - we want as many students as possible to enjoy this experience!

We’re heading back to the Chattahoochee River for this year’s baptism and picnic. This is one of the most meaningful Sundays of the year, so you won’t want to miss it.
Following the outdoor worship and baptism, we’ll be sharing a picnic meal together. We’re bringing the fried chicken, rolls and drinks, you all bring the sides and deserts to share…picnic fair is best!
You may want to bring your own lawn chair as well…the kids playground is right next to the gazebo, which is perfect for your children, so bring them along!
While you’re trying to figure out how to get through your crazy May schedule, please look ahead to next month and mark the week of June 4th as the beginning of our summer DBG session. We are looking forward to studying 1 Timothy. We do not have details on groups worked out yet, but we hope to offer several options as always. If you haven’t had the opportunity to participate in a Discovery Bible Group, please consider adding this to your summer schedule.
We will have one sign-up Sunday on May 21st before and after church in the coffee lobby. We will also have sign-ups on the City as soon as we have group days/times/locations figured out.
We will wrap up the initial phase of the Conversations journey on Saturday May 6th when we gather back together at Eagles Nest Church for this “Landing” event. Your Conversations group will reassemble around tables once more as together we look back, enjoy, and look forward. Childcare will be provided onsite for 4yr-olds and above. Nursery through 3yr-olds will be cared for at the Commons.
