NO YOUTH GROUP THIS WEEK OR NEXT!
We will postpone our Youth Group meetings for Palm Sunday and Easter. Take this time to enjoy the many other activities going on in our church!
 
YOUR HELP NEEDED FOR EASTER
As we walk this last few steps of Lent, my prayer is that through our relationship with Jesus Christ, we have been freed from the many places of pain or bondage that destroy our spirit and life. In preparation for Easter Sunday, I invite you to send a word or a short statement of fewer than 10 words that reflects what Christ has done for you. On Easter morning your word will be included in our worship celebration! (No identities revealed!). What has Jesus Christ lifted from, removed or healed in your life? (i.e. Sorrow, loss, fear, addiction, loneliness, etc.).  Deadline for sending words, Mon April 10.
 
LOVE MUSIC?  LOVE OUR CHOIR?
Join us (and bring a friend) at 5:00 pm on Sunday the3 9th in the Sanctuary for our Easter Cantata – “Christ is Risen” by the Celebration Singers.
 
WEDNESDAY NIGHT SUPPER
There will be a potluck/bring a dish dinner on Wednesday, April 12. 6:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall. ALL are welcome!
 
LADIES LUNCH BUNCH
Thursday the 13th we will meet at the church at 11am to carpool to the City Cafe in Fayetteville, GA.  All ladies are welcome to celebrate April birthdays!
 
HYDRANGEAS
Will be used to decorate the worship areas during Easter. The hydrangeas were purchased in honor or in memory of loved ones.
 
FRESH FLOWERS FOR THE CROSS
You are asked to bring your fresh flowers to place on the cross in the sanctuary on Easter at the Traditional Service at 9:00 am
 
FOR MEMORIAL DAY
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.
 
VACATION?
Vacation time of year is quickly approaching. Now is the time for us to start planning how we can continue our tithes and special offerings while we are away on vacation. Cokes Chapel has several ways to accomplish this. You can give online through our website, www.cokeschapel.org which links you to Pay Pal, by downloading our Church App on your smartphone or tablet or by simply mailing your check to the church office. Remember, our church depends on all of us to continue normal operations, grow our church and to support all our important Outreach Ministries.

The Sizzlin’ Seniors will be enjoying a performance of the funny new musical “Church Basement Ladies” on Friday, May 5th. We will have dinner at 6:00 at Carrabba’s and then attend the 8:00 performance at the Legacy Theatre. Please put your name on the signup sheet by April 9th and pay Betsy Bagley or Glenda McDuffie $26.50 for each ticket. Please plan to join us for a night of fun together!

COKES CHAPEL UMC FINANCIAL CORNER
A big thank you to all our members and guests for your incredibly generous tithes and offerings for January and February. Our church can function because of everyone’s contributions. Our special offerings allow us to continue our Outreach Ministries Programs. Remember we are doing God’s work through these programs. Isn’t it a great feeling to know we are helping our community by helping those in need?

Keep looking for regular updates from YOUR Financial Committee. We want each one of our members to know where your donations go and how the money is being used for God’s work. Let’s continue to help others and make Disciples for Christ.

Again, thank you to each one of you for helping OUR church continue to do God’s work.

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 at770-301-2577 or
