Oakhurst Church Weekly News, March 3, 2012

Join us on Saturday, March 24 for our inaugural Eastside Church community Easter Egg Hunt at the Oakhurst Community Garden from 10:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. If you will help out with this event, please see Lani Martz or email her at [email protected].

If you are interested in being in a small group, there are still some groups that have room. Please email Elisabeth Lloyd at [email protected] to find out where you can plug in to the discussion and fellowship.

We will host another “Craftaganza” craft-making event on Saturday, April 14 from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. Check out our website and Facebook page for more info coming soon.

Please plan to be a part of our Holy Week services. We will have Palm/Passion Sunday, Good Friday, and Resurrection Sunday worship services. Childcare will be provided.

We are looking for someone to coordinate an Outreach Team as well as those who want to be on the team. The team would plan different church events open to the community. If you are interested in coordinating or serving on the Outreach Team, see Maria Carr or Lani Martz.

The International Federation of L’Arche Communities, a global organization that provides opportunities for men and women with disabilities to interact fully within their communities with dignity, seeks volunteer families to host delegates from around the world during the weekend preceding its next General Assembly, which takes place June 3-10. This is a great opportunity to share cultures and faiths, and to make new friends from other countries. Go to http://atlanta.larche.org and click on the “Families” link for more information and to sign up.

We need a volunteer to lead a team or possibly a small group to serve Jesse’s House this summer, as part of our desire to become a partner church with the UMC Children’s Home. This would entail either selecting a week to take food for the interns or a week to provide supplies. Please contact Pastor Tim Lloyd ([email protected]) or Alison Wright if you will help with this initiative.

Would you like to get to know a neighbor who is homeless? Want to help someone get connected to the larger community? Care Teams with Intown Collaborative Ministries are your opportunity! Each Care Team consists of 2-3 persons from area churches that are assigned to one homeless client of ICM, getting together once a month and getting to know one another. Activities can include lunch, coffee, conversation, games, walks and exercise, and more. Please contact Maria Carr at [email protected] if you are interested!
