May 13, 2021 G Chat

                       

                     

                               Sunday, May 16th in Sanctuary

                                    Ascension Sunday                   

                                    10:00 a.m. Worship

                        Luke 24:44-53      “Parting Words”

Some of the most important words are spoken as we leave – whether on a trip, going to work, or facing death.  Words that can haunt or guide us.  Jesus was always mindful of his impending leave-taking and of speaking about it.  How do we hear his last words spoken to the disciples today? 

 

Tithes and Offerings Note: in continuing our COVID guidelines a table is provided for tithes and offerings as you enter the Sanctuary.  There are two offering plates; one for communion offering and another for your offerings.

As of 5/5/21: Coweta County has returned to Yellow risk level.  Thank you for being part of the solution! We will keep covid guidelines including sanitizing stations, no handouts, congregational singing, limit inside time, and open doors for ventilation, weather permitting.

Worship Update: Church Council voted to resume solos.  We look forward to welcoming live music in worship!

Reminder – 
We are planning and praying for our Southern Picnic/Silent Auction in August!!  All proceeds will benefit our three missionary families – the Earles in Italy, the Haddens in South Dakota, and the Houles in Thailand.

How Can You Help? If you have items – a “like-new” item, a service (baking, etc.) or places: a second home at the beach, mountains or lake that you could open for a long weekend or week, your participation is how Cokes has been able to support our missionaries throughout the year.  Each year, God has mightily used your creative and generous ways to fund missions literally around the world!

If you think you have something that would be a good addition to our auction, please contact Betsy Bagley or other Outreach Team member.  ebbagley@gmail.com
 

UMW will meet in the Fellowship Hall on Thursday, May 20 at 10 AM.  All ladies are welcome to attend.  Please join us for lunch at Chili’s in PTC after the meeting for some food, fun and fellowship. We always have a great time.
 
Our Childcare Center can always use a helping hand. Remember you must clear security before you can have access to the children.  We can always pray and thank God for the leadership, staff and, most importantly, the children.  “They are precious in His sight”.

A Note to the Prayer Team and Cokes Chapel Family
It is with heartfelt thanks to all of you at Cokes Chapel who kept my sister and her family in your prayers on the loss of Heather, her daughter and my niece.   The love and friendship that radiates from your hearts is an amazing blessing to me and our family.
From our hearts… thank you.  Diane Johnson and family.

Let us join in prayer together:  
God we come to give you our thanks and praise.  At the beginning of each day may we turn to You for wisdom, strength and hope.  Then as we go about our day we pray that you guide us in each of our decisions, empower us to see the needs of others, and teach us to serve and give as You did for us.  
Lord we pray for ourselves, for our church, community and world.  We face so many difficulties, whether in our personal life or in being aware of the sorrows and challenges of the world community.  You are our only hope, our stay in times of trouble, the light that surrounds us with love that changes all circumstances.
Form us with your love, teach us to mindfully embrace opportunities to bring light and Your message of hope.  We love you Lord! Amen.


Craig and Cindy Cox would like to invite all of you to help them celebrate their 25th Wedding Anniversary on Saturday, May 22, 2021.  Drop-in will be from 11 am to 4 pm at the Cokes Chapel UMC Fellowship Hall.  See invite . . . 
 

 
Show our Shut-ins some Love!  A note from you would brighten their day and make a difference.  You don’t even have to “know” them, just sign the card, “your Coke’s Chapel Family”.
 
Consider sending one card each week to rotate through the list, and let the Cokes Chapel love shine out!

We are collecting Chef Boyardee Variety Packs for Backpack Buddies through the end of the month. You can purchase a 12-pack at Sam’s or BJ’s for about $10.  Please bring them to church and place in narthex.  If you would rather donate money to purchase the packs, please write a check to Cokes Chapel and designate for Backpack Buddies — or give check/cash to Betsy Bagley.


We are busy about making a difference for our community!
We continue to wash the many loads of laundry from the Childcare Center while the kitchen and the laundry rooms are being renovated.  This will be a mighty blessing for the staff and children.  
We will meet again on May 20th at 10 AM in the Fellowship Hall.  We will be planning the first 2021 Wednesday Evening Supper…a picnic table with all the fixings!!!!  Come join the fun, food and most of all the fellowship.

MINISTRY MESSAGE:  INTER-GENERATIONAL & YOUTH MINISTRY, May 5, 2021:  
 
In Inter-generational Ministry, the Inter-generational Sunday School Class is gathering in-person before worship in the Worship Center from 8:40-9:40 AM.  Everyone is welcome! (The church’s COVID guidelines for in-person gatherings will be followed.  Please remember to wear a mask and practice social distancing.)  This month we are exploring God’s invitation to be a new creation in Christ.  This coming Sunday, May 9th, we will study 2 Corinthians and discuss how we are reconciled with God through Christ.
 
In Youth Ministry, we have been working hard to create the Memorial Butterfly Garden for Mia Jordan, which is located next to the Cokes Chapel Labyrinth.  The foundation has been constructed and the flowers have been planted.  Finishing touches are soon to be added. Please look for more information on the dedication of the garden in the coming weeks.
 
Finally, on Sunday, May 23rd, we will be recognizing our High School and College graduates.  Please contact Kim at kreindl@cokeschapel.org if your family is celebrating a graduate.
 
God is at work all around us!  May we hold each other by heart and lift each other by prayer as we seek to follow in the way of Christ!  
 
With love, 
Kim

Sympathy to Sandra Oliver on the death of her brother, Lamar Wilborn on Wednesday, April 28 in Panama City, Florida.

Let us join in prayer together:  
God we come to give you our thanks and praise.  Each day is a gift, each moment is a treasure to be experienced.  We pray that we would come to know you in ways that give us understanding of how to love, how to give love and how to love ourselves.  May we embrace the mercy and grace that you show to us, such that we are drawn to live out that same mercy and grace with others.
We ask you to comfort those who are struggling, who are ill, who are separated from You and feel lost.  Give us the gift of seeing the broken, and of offering ourselves in Your name for the healing of others. Allow us to humbly take on Your mantle of love.  Help us to love, serve and bring light to the world in Your name, through Your power for your glory.  We love you Lord! Amen.
