Our cemetery guy (Thom McCague) will need a little assistance after April 11th as he is finally going to have his knee replaced. If anyone would like to help out with a little clean up (raking and sweeping) for our upcoming Memorial Day Sunday service it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Now is the time to order hydrangeas in memory or honor of your loved one. These plants will be used to decorate the
worship areas during Easter. You can then take your plant home. You can sign up online below or sign up at one of the sign-up areas at church. Envelopes are there for your payment and they are $ 15 each. Click on the hydrangea to sign up online.

AN OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE
Did you know — we have a Meals on Wheels Team?!
Coweta County’s Meals on Wheels program delivers hot meals to elderly homebound people in need. We have had a Cokes Chapel Meals on Wheels team composed of 10 to 12 members since 2008. Our team delivers the prepared meals to clients on one of the routes each Friday. Each person on our team is only required to deliver about one Friday a month.
The elderly clients appreciate the service provided by the program. However, the members of the Cokes Chapel MOW team report that they receive an even greater blessing by participating in the program and by developing relationships with the clients. Please consider joining our team as we serve the elderly of our community. You will make a difference in their lives, and you will also receive a blessing! If you are interested or would like more information, contact Betsy Bagley.

WELCOME TO OUR NEW SECRETARY – GAIL STONE
I was born and raised in Wyoming and moved to Georgia about 40 years ago. My husband’s name is Stephen and is a
native of Coweta County. I have three adult children (two girls and one boy) Regina, Adam, and Jessi who all live within 30-45 minutes from us. We are the proud grandparents of six grandchildren ranging in age from 4 years old to 25 years old (four girls and two boys). Our grandchildren are welcome anytime, but the adult children only by appointment 🙂 I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren, crochet, tatting, sewing, reading, camping, vegetable gardening, and traveling – anywhere, anytime.
