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.

MISSIONS/OUTREACH TEAM MEETING – TONIGHT FEBRUARY 8, 2017 AT 7:00 PM

Cokes Chapel is a mission-minded church. Our congregation is a caring and loving one, so there is a lot going on here.

We give gifts and food at Thanksgiving and Christmas to those less fortunate here in our community and around the world. We sing at nursing homes, prepare and serve meals at Trinity Table, deliver Meals on Wheels – and these are just some of our missions. A lot is being done, but there is much more to do. We all have talents and interests, and hopefully, every member will become involved in some kind of outreach project. Please join us Wednesday, February 8th, at 7:00 in the Fellowship Hall to make our plans for ways we can make a difference in 2017.

We sing at nursing homes, prepare and serve meals at Trinity Table, deliver Meals on Wheels – and these are just some of our missions. A lot is being done, but there is much more to do. We all have talents and interests, and hopefully, every member will become involved in some kind of outreach project. Please join us Wednesday, February 8th, at 7:00 in the Fellowship Hall to make our plans for ways we can make a difference in 2017. If you have any questions, please contact Betsy and Earl Bagley at 770-301-2577 or ebbagley@gmail.com.
