You may see some plywood…

and other signs of progress in the next weeks at the Chapel.  The Trustees are beginning the first steps to replace the door in the middle right wall of the sanctuary as it is unusable and rotting.  The Trustees are delighted to announce that we will be replacing the door with a custom stain glass window to complement the other windows.  There will be some occasions you will find temporary openings sealed with plywood as they replace and repair the wall/door area.

We look forward to the Sunday that we dedicate our final stain glass piece, and ask you to be patient with our progress.

Staff Parish Relationship Receives Resignation

Last week, our Youth Director Bobby Totten, submitted his resignation.  Following that, he also communicated directly with our Youth and Parents to let them know his decision. 

Bobby has served our youth over 10 years, and is seeking to move into full time Youth ministry.  He is currently on staff at Cornerstone and will complete his Cokes Chapel commitments at the end of July.  He will be leading the River of Life mission as planned and on July 24, coordinate the Youth Sunday report for both worship services.

Bobby has said that he and his family will remain members of Coke’s Chapel, with the rest of the family still active in various ways as they are now, though his new position will preclude his involvement during worship.  We wish Bobby every success in continuing his ministry path, and ask that you keep him in your prayers, as well as our Youth in this time of change. 

Regardless of who is our Youth Director, our youth need additional adult presence.  Please contact Pastor Lisa if you would be willing to be one of the folks that will be a spiritual guide, an encouraging presence and make a difference in our youth.  They need YOU to show your love by taking part in this ministry!

Your SPR committee requests your prayers and support as we begin a search for the right person to lead our Youth.  We are updating the job description and will begin the search promptly. We will keep you informed.

Weekly Announcements 6/22/16

Will You Pray with Me?

I am sure you have been asked that question many times. I have learned that when prayer is asked for, or when I offer to pray for someone, the BEST thing I can do is stop and pray right then. No matter whether I am in the grocery store, in the middle of the mall, driving (I don’t close my eyes!). You get the picture. Prayer can happen any where, any time.

I know from experience that my day is better when I don’t let anything interrupt my prayer and meditation time each morning. My heart is prepared through reading God’s Word. My spirit is encouraged as I lay the day before the Lord and am reminded that He will be directing my path and is Master over all that I do. I invite you to a 6 week Summer Experiment. We have a wonderful tool at our fingertips for prayer, published by the UM Publishing House, The Upper Room. It is available in print and online for free*. Imagine: what kind of mighty work God can do through us if all of us as a faith community were to commit to reading and praying each day the SAME meditations and scriptures!

One heart, one mind, one purpose being shaped together each day for the next 6 weeks. I believe in the power of prayer and the unity of prayers of the people. Will you pray with me?

If you will, please let me know by sending me an email or signing up on the Summer Prayer Experiment sheet posted in the worship areas.

Pastor Lisa

YOUTH NEWS

Dear Cokes Chapel Family,

A lot of changes have been occurring at Cokes Chapel over the last few weeks and months. We said good-bye to Pastor Mark and we have now officially welcomed Pastor Lisa and her family. Now is the time to begin FOCUSing on ministry again. With that being said, (or written in this case), we will be embarking on a connectional ministry with Cornerstone UMC. What does that mean for FOCUS Youth? This is an opportunity to expand our potential, expanding our reach and building on what is already being done.

Specifically, we will be able to connect for our youth retreats and events, connecting for worship while maintaining small groups to allow us to dive deeper into our relationship with God. The exact plan is still being discerned and revealed but as we move forward through the summer, we hope to have the weekly plan ready for the fall.

For now, FOCUS Youth will continue to meet on Sunday’s through July 17 when we return from River Of Life. FOCUS students are invited to go to the Eastgate neighborhood on Wednesdays through July. Stay tuned for more fun activities through August and back to school. We will keep you informed as we develop this new ministry.

Please be in prayer for our connectional ministry opportunity and for our River Of Life mission team.

Yours In Christ,

Bobby Totten
FOCUS Youth Director
Cokes Chapel UMC

THANK YOU FROM THE JORDAN FAMILY

Dear Cokes Chapel Family,

We all want to thank you for a truly blessed time in ministry together these past several years. The celebration we enjoyed this past Sunday left us truly overwhelmed. From the love and energy in the worship space, to the spiritual synergy during Mia’s baptism, to the gifts of love and appreciation, to the mind-blowing luncheon, it was a day we will never forget! “Thank you” seems so inadequate during a time of reflection and celebration such as this, but it is about all we can muster as we say, “God be with you.” Please be in prayer for our family while we gear up for ministry at The United Methodist Church At The Well in Cartersville, and know that we are in prayer for Cokes Chapel, and especially Pastor Lisa and Jack Dempsey. 

God be with You,

Mark, Tiffany, and Ethan Jordan
