Join Our Church Wide Effort!

October 7th & 8th

A huge part of our Fall Festival each year is our BBQ LUNCH. United Methodist Men we need you to help serve on our BBQ team. We need a team to help in areas such as food prep, the serving line, table hosts, cashiers, and clean up. Serving times are 11:00am - 1:00pm on both days. To volunteer show up at the MAC kitchen at 9am on Friday or 10am on Saturday morning. For more info call Bill Kolb at 706-487-9892 or Stan at the church.

Crafters Needed!

We are looking to fill the following craft tables for our Fall Festival craft sale. Would you donate a few of your creations to our Festival? If so call Tricia Wallace @ 229-402-9361.

Baskets…Paintings…Paper

Crafts…Woodworking…Yard Art…Seasonal Crafts…College Items…Cards…Quilting…

Beading/Jewelry…Baby Items… Furniture…

Crocheting…Knitting…Floral/Wreaths…

Glass Art…Your Creations

 

You do not have to fill a table with your crafts nor will you have to be present for the sale. If you are willing to make just a few of your crafts, we will collect and display them. We are not asking you to make 20 or 30 items; just as many as you would like to contribute to the sale.

There is a poster in the MAC lobby where you can sign up to be the groomer/pruner for a particular spot on our campus. You know the phrase many hands make light work, right? We’re hoping that together we can get our grounds beautiful again. This is in addition to our lawn mowing crew.

Please stop by and say a prayer over these quilts. Tying a knot lets the receiver know that people care and that we have prayed for them.
