WE ARE TRYING SOMETHING NEW!!!

Continuing SUNDAY, May 31st, AT 10:00a.m. IN OUR PARKING LOT.  Please note the change in time from 11:00a.m. to 10:00a.m as we move into warmer days.

Until we can safely worship in our sanctuary again we will be continuing Drive-In Services for worship.  Come in your car and you will be able to participate in our live service while accessing the  service on your car radio.  We will be parking in every other space in our parking lot. The Church Building, bathrooms and playground will be closed; and we ask that worshippers stay in their cars to promote social distancing. Weekly services will still be posted on YouTube.

Come and join us for this new form of Sunday Service.

SPECIAL MESSAGE 

AT THE ADVISE OF OUR BISHOP AND OUR CABINET WE WILL CONTINUE TO SUSPEND WORSHIP SERVICES AND ALL OTHER ACTIVITIES UNTIL AFTER June 22 DUE TO THE COVID-19 VIRUS.  STAY IN, STAY SAFE, AND CONTINUE TO BE IN PRAYER. CALL THE  CHURCH OFFICE AND LEAVE A MESSAGE IF YOU HAVE A SPECIFIC NEED. A STAFF MEMBER WILL RETURN YOUR CALL.  706-635-2555

Our Church Leaders are discussing what changes will need to take place to make our worship space safe for when we begin to open the church for services.

Planning is also taking place to see if we can safely conduct our Summer Activities such as Vacation Bible School and GRASP later in the summer.   A lot will depend on the progress of the Covid virus as we have seen how changes can take place quickly. More information will be distributed as it becomes available.

All staff  are still  working from home and if you need to get a message to one of us please leave a message on the answer machine. This will be checked on a regular basis throughout the day.

The Sunday message will continue to be loaded on to YouTube. You can view any of our services by going to youtube.com. In the search window type the date and Ellijay for example:    03 22 20 Ellijay  This will bring up this past Sunday’s message. Be sure to put a space between the month, day, and year and Ellijay just like you see it typed here If you put any past Sunday’s date, that week’s service will come up.

Please check our church website for updates on future activities. The website address is: fumcelliay.org.

 STEPHEN MINISTRY

Stephen ministry is a nondenominational confidential ministry of trained Christian care givers. Their role is to LISTEN and CARE- not counsel of advise. Stephen Ministers are assigned only to  people who agree to receive the care of a Stephen Minister.  They minister to people in specific situations such as divorce, terminal illness, grief, aging, loneliness, single parenting, etc. Stephen Ministers minister to only one care receiver at a time and usually meets with that person for one hour per week.  They are trained to recognize when a care receiver’s needs go beyond the care of a Stephen Minister and can refer the Care Receiver for additional care. People interested in these services need not be a member of a church.

For more information on becoming a Stephen Minister or requesting services from a Stephen Minister please contact Gwen Scarth,  at gwenyth.allen@gmail.com or at 706-258-8757 or John VanNamen at vannamenjohn@ gmail.com or at 219-670-3057.
