3 Day Kid’s Mission Camp  THIS WEEK!

WHAT: Join us Cokes Chapel UMC partners with Newnan First UMC to give kids the “hands-on” experience of serving others.  Each day we’ll gather at Newnan First UMC for worship, bible study, and participation in a different service project.  Kids are asked to bring their own sack lunch as we’ll end each day with a time of fellowship and reflection, recapping that day’s events while preparing our hearts for the next day’s adventure.   
This will also be a time of partnership with the Cokes Chapel Childcare Center as older kids will be offered the opportunity to attend Mission Camp as a daily field trip, while younger kids will experience daily devotionals and be encouraged to collect item donations.

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 can provide real traction in today’s world. Without fail, the few simple acts of 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.
