Get Connected.  Taking your next step to become more like Jesus is best done with others who are on the same journey. If you don't have a dedicated group of people to walk alongside you, stop by Next Steps and we will help you find a small group.

FAMILY NEWS
We express sympathy to Bea Long and David Stevens on the passing of their mother, Wanda Stevens, on Jan. 18. Details will be posted when known.

We rejoice in the baptism of Aimee Germ on Wednesday, Jan. 15!

We express sympathy to Sheila Swink and family on the passing of her aunt, JoAnne Jones, on Jan. 15 in Dalton.

Pray for the one person or one family you would like to get connected to God. Find opportunities to invite your friends, neighbors, and coworkers to a safe environment in our building or to an outside activity. Introduce them to our church family and lead them to the life-changing relationship we have in Jesus. If you'd like to know more, contact the church office.
TEACHING
Jan. 26: Epiphany: Part 4: There are some “ah-ha” moments that God reserves for the people who choose to do this one thing. It’s one thing that cannot be faked or forged, but it can be fostered. What is it? Join us Sunday for part 3 of Epiphany: The Path of the Wise series to find out.
