Have you been thinking about a trip to Cuba?
Over the years, First & Franklin has glimpsed just the "hem" of Choung Lam's artistic presence, primarily through the sensitivity he has brought to the preparation of our worship space, including the paraments that he himself designed for our use. During this exhibit we will see more than the outer-edge of his gifts, but a collection of works representing his artistic vocation.
Please join Art Under the Spire for its exhibition of Mr. Chuong Lam's artwork in Reid Chapel following worshi each week through October. A presentation of a gift from the church will be on his last day, Sunday, September 16th. There will be an opportunity at the reception to express to Choung our appreciation for all of the gifts he has shared with us over the years.
Adult Forum begins at 9:15 A.M. in Backus House.
Travel size toiletries are being collected to give away to church office visitors throughout the week. Many folks in need stop by the church to ask for help and this is a small way in which we can all participate in supporting them. Hand sanitizer, vasoline, chapsticks, tissue packs, shampoos, conditioner, toothpaste and toothbrushes, lotion, feminine hygiene products. Travel size ONLY, please.
A Church Survey has been published and we are asking for your honest opinions and thoughts on where you see the church now and in the future. Please complete the Survey and return it by August 19th or ASAP so the Committee can compile it for all to review. Anonymous responses only please. Drop them in the offering plate, email to the office, or send by snail mail. Your choice.
7/29/18 is the LAST Sunday! The early elementary and middle school church school classes started their yearly service project in April. This year we are promoting and seeking support for the Neatly Used Book Sale! We are collecting books during the Reid Chapel Fellowship every Sunday after church service throughout the summer.
During the summer months, we will sell books for fifty cents to a dollar. The money collected will be shared with church work that reaches beyond our immediate community. So, if you have adult and children’s literature that you want to recycle, please start collecting and share with us.
Please consider sharing gently used books for this project THROUGHOUT the summer so the inventory remains fresh and interesting.
Stop by the tables each Sunday to see what is new!
