Cokes Family Values…. You!
God established the church to be the body of Christ in the world. As a part of the Cokes family, everyone is important to our ability to be the church.  Cokes seeks to fulfill Christ’s commission by serving, witnessing, giving/tithing, worshipping together, and praying together.  It takes all these parts to make the whole church as she was designed to function.
 
Each of you count towards our faithful response to God’s plan for Cokes Chapel! We use your Giving Card and Service Sheet for the planning of Cokes for 2020.  Some have not turned in their card/sheet.   Stewardship has extended the deadline so everyone can respond.  You count!  God Counts on Us!  
 
Additional cards and service sheets are available at the office and in the narthex.  Get yours turned in today, so we can prepare for the future of Cokes ministries. Questions?

Interested in Methodism?

 

All are invited to join Pastor Lisa for a 3-week series on Methodism.  While this class usually draws folks who are new to Methodism, anyone can join us!  We will meet for three Sundays: October 20, 27, and Nov. 3 at 12:15 pm and finish by 2:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall.  Lunch is provided.

This class provides an overview of practices, history of the UMC and Cokes ministries.  One favorite time each week is when our leadership shares their area of ministry.  On Sunday, Nov. 10, we will have a  Joining Sunday for those ready to make Cokes Chapel their home church. 

Former attendees have expressed appreciation for this opportunity to learn more about our faith. Through this experience, people make new connections and friends. Questions?  Contact Pastor Lisa @770-598-5066.

To Cokes Chapel UMC
THANK YOU
We feel so blessed to have a church family who comes together in times of crisis with love and support.  We give you our heartfelt thanks for all the prayers and the generous donations that you have made to help our son, Mark, and his family when they lost everything in a house fire this week.  He has been overwhelmed by your kindness and is moving forward knowing that God is with him each step of the way.

For all of us, there are many demands on our time.  This weekend was no different, as Cokes offered both a Labyrinth learning experience, a time to walk a canvas labyrinth, and Sunday to sing some of our old favorites in a unified worship, followed by a cover dish meal that had the tables groaning and our tummies full!
 
Our Friday night walk on the canvas labyrinth was a quiet, reflective time.  Most who came had already had an experience walking, yet as we are learning, every walk is different. Saturday morning, we served a breakfast worthy of kings and queens, with our excellent speaker John Rhodes.  John lead us through learning how to draw a labyrinth, provided both history and current inspiration for the use of labyrinths, from prayer, healing and even wedding ceremonies.  Twenty-eight of us were together as we concluded with a walk.  We all left inspired and excited for the future potential of the labyrinth for us and our community!
 
Want to know more?  We will keep you informed as we proceed.  John spent quite a bit of time with Jackson Smith, our Eagle Scout who will construct our labyrinth.  Many are asking where we will put it.  Jackson is working on the options and when he knows more, he will present options to the Trustees and to Church Council, as well as make his plans available for you.  We expect that to take place once Jackson completes his Marching Band season!
 
Taking steps together, to grow and experience God in our lives – for our benefit and God’s glory!!

Peace, Pastor Lisa
