Welcome Back Inside Our Sanctuary

We are holding  worship service inside our sanctuary for those who feel comfortable returning to worship.  Service will be at 10:00a.m. for the time being. Services will be added as necessary.

Seating in pews is arranged for social distancing and masks are required. Masks will be available if you forget yours. Hand sanitizer will be available as you arrive. Ushers will escort you to your seat. Unfortunately visiting with friends will be discouraged.  We are taking reasonable steps to assure your safety. Because seating is limited we are asking that you call the church office and let us know that you will be attending so we can reserve you a seat.  You can call Monday – Thursday from 9:00a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The Fellowship Hall is being used as an overflow room where the service can be viewed in real time.

If seating is full or you are not ready to worship inside, you will be able to continue to worship in the parking lot as the FM 89.9 will still be operating. We will also be streaming live on Facebook on facebook.com/ellijayfumc.

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.

Come and Join us at EFUMC!


DURING THIS TIME OF SEPARATION PLEASE CONTINUE TO BE GOOD STEWARDS.  YOU CAN MAIL YOUR CONTRUIBUTIONS TO THE CHURCH OR USE THE ONLINE GIVING SERVICE. Church post office box is PO Box 472. THANK YOU.

FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS: A BACK TO SCHOOL BLESSING FOR UNCERTAIN TIMES: SUNDAY, AUGUST 2 @ 11:00 A.M.

School begins on August 7. But it will be a school year unlike any other. Some will be learning or teaching online, while others gather in classrooms and practice social distancing. Some parents will become teachers during this new year, and administrators will find themselves in uncharted territory. Not to mention the fact that custodial staff will put in extra hours cleaning and keeping our schools safe! As such, for our students, parents/guardians, teachers, administrators, custodial workers and all involved in the lives of children and students, we are offering a drive-through Communion and blessing for you underneath the portico at 11 a.m. August 2. Christ promised to be with us always, and these strange times are no exception. We invite you to join us!


SPR Meeting

There will be a SPR Meeting, Wednesday, August 5 at 3:00 p.m. in Thom’s office.


FINANCIAL NEWS

On June 30th the final mortgage payment was made on our church parsonage. This puts the church in an excellent financial position. We are totally debt free! We can now concentrate on funding our church expansion. While the parsonage is paid for, we still have our normal expenses to contend with. Please maintain your normal tithes and offerings to meet these needs.


Family Life Center Building Update

The Building Committee continues to work with the design build firm ESI, the architect, and on the relocation of the building from the east side of the campus to the west side. A detailed floor plan and exterior drawings are available.

May God bless all our efforts and may all we do glorify Him.

 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.
