Lat & Linda Heard have invited our Legacy senior adults to their home in Elberton for a Saturday outing on April 13 from 11 a.m to 4 pm. Spring flowers should be in bloom with, we hope, a lovely warm day. Put this on your calendar!

Schedule:

11:00 a.m. arrive at the Heard’s home in Elberton.

11:30 a.m. - Carpool to the Macintosh Coffee Shoppe - 24 North Macintosh Street in Elberton for lunch. The menu has sandwich plates, salad plates, and wrap plates - prices range from about $4.50 to $8.00.

Round 3: Prayer Night
Aug

Round 3: Prayer Night

Round Three is our third of four gatherings this year where we corporately call out to God through prayer, Scripture, and song. The Bible tells us that we are in a fight against the enemy (1 Peter 5:6-9). We believe that these nights when we gather like this or not meant as preparation for the battle, rather it is us together as a family actively engaging in the battle. We will gather “in the round” in the life building on August 22nd from 6:30pm to 7:30pm.

Childcare will be provided for kids Pre-K and under (older kids are encouraged to come with their parents). Families who need childcare please contact Gayle by Monday, August 20.
