Got a Grace Moment? Following Easter, we will have a sermon series on Grace. Sharing Grace moments opens up our own awareness and encourages others to see God’s grace in their lives.
If you have a Moment of Grace you would share (such as) when you felt God’s forgiveness, or perhaps you have felt or experienced emotional, spiritual or physical healing that represents God’s grace to you, speak with Pastor Lisa or email at ldempsey@cokeschapel.org and participate in this time of witnessing for God to our community!

Eagle Scout Reminds Us of a Deep-Rooted History
Slave Monolith Dedication
Sunday May 5th, 3:30pm – 4:15pm Cormac McCarthy, Eagle Scout, Venturing Summit, Ranger Award Recipient, and VFW Scout of the Year, along with his Scouts BSA Troop 2193, Venturing Crew 2193, and members of Cokes Chapel UMC, will be conducting a dedication ceremony.

McCarthy chose to recognize history while working on his Venturing Summit project, by designing & commissioning, a granite monolith engraved with previously unacknowledged names of some of the slaves believed to have been buried, in the unmarked graveyard, behind the Cokes Chapel Sanctuary. Many of the names were found through probate court records, dated before President Abraham Lincoln declared an executive order freeing all slaves, in the Emancipation Proclamation, on January 1st of 1863.

McCarthy then reached out to Michael and Karen Lassetter from Coweta Monument Company, to create the Monolith. “In a time when so many are tearing down monuments, and statues, Cormac McCarthy found a way to put a monument up.” (the Lasseter’s, Coweta Monument) To find out more about this project and our Scouts, we hope you will come to the dedication ceremony.
