ALL ARE INVITED – COVERED DISH ON SUNDAY, AUGUST 14TH
The church has planned a covered dish fellowship next Sunday, August 14th which will follow the 11:00 service in the Contemporary Worship Center. This time has been planned in order to give Pastor Lisa another opportunity to spend some time getting to know more of the congregation. So plan to bring along a favorite dish to share and have lunch with church friends!
 
THANK YOU FROM BRIGHTER DAY!
Through the generosity of Cokes Chapel members, about 80 underprivileged children were furnished with school supplies. What a wonderful outreach mission for our church.  Thank you all!

HOSPITALITY OPPORTUNITIES
During the month of July, we enjoyed special weekly church-wide gatherings! Continuing this opportunity of fellowship and refreshments, the Hospitality team will host a monthly gathering on the third Sunday of the month from 10:30-10:55 a.m. under the awning. We encourage you to come a bit early to church or at the end of your Sunday School time to enjoy fresh-baked cookies and beverages and visit with others in our Cokes Chapel family. If you have other ideas or would like to be part of the Hospitality Team, please let Pam, Caren or Jennifer know. We hope you will join us for these occasions.
 
YOUTH DIRECTOR SEARCH
Your staff Parish Relations Committee is actively seeking our next Youth Director. Advertisements have been placed in a number of areas that connect to people who are either in seminary, or are related through the North Georgia conference to youth and teaching ministries.
 
Our goal is to find just the right person to bring their gifts and graces to this opportunity to build a relationship and begin a new chapter in their faith journey.
 
If you have someone who may be interested, please ask them to contact us with a resume and recommendations at spryouth@cokeschapel.org.
 
“SERVING COMMUNION IN THE CHURCH” AUGUST 14TH
Do you wish to participate in serving communion for 9 or 11 o’clock worship? Pastor Lisa is asking all who want to take part in serving to attend this one day class at 10:10-10:45 in the Sanctuary. This will also be the format to train for communion setup/clean up if you wish to be a communion steward. Sign up for the class so that we have enough materials for each person by calling the church office or by emailing Barbara at office@cokeschapel.org.
 
UPCOMING SERMON SERIES
Do you want to transform the world? Let’s start with us! What the World Needs Now … Kindness & Love may oftentimes seem just too hard to reach for, but kindness often make for viral news – because so little can take on such gravity in our hearts. Kindness is the key to introducing the way of Christ. Love may seem to forward, to false, but living with kindness bridges the gap. Considerations on kindness: the source of it; the strength in it; the witness of it. Join us for three weeks of “Kindness – A Way Forward” beginning August 14th.
