We need help on Thursday evenings from 6:30-7:30 to clean the church in preparation for worship. There is a sign up sheet at the coffee bar for those able to contribute. This is an easy way to serve as well as to get connected with others in the church.

Art Group and Worship practice take place on Thursdays as well so it is a great time of fellowship. If you would like more info you can talk to Bruce Kennedy, Van Gower or Elisabeth Lloyd.

If you are interested in learning more about joining an Oakhurst Small Group please contact Elisabeth Lloyd at Elisabeth@eastsideatl.org. Currently we have 5 groups that meet at various times and locations during the week. You can jump in at any time! Groups gather to fellowship, encourage one another, study scripture and pray for one another.

Nicol and Jeremy Turner ‘s organization Contribute2America now meets every Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the Little 5 Points Community Center where they do a devotional and serve food and clothing to those in need.

If you would like more info or would like to serve please talk with Jeremy after worship or go to www.contributetoamerica.org.

Please email Maria Carr at maria@intowncm.org if you are interested in working one-on-one with a family in need currently being served by Intown Collaborative Ministries.
