Saturday, July 31st is PreK furniture building day for the Cokes Chapel Childcare Centers 2nd PreK!
The Childcare Center is in need of help assembling all of the furniture, cots, cubbies, play kitchens, chairs, etc.  There are 24 cots to snap together and they saved $100 per cot by assembling ourselves.  All are welcome and requested to help.  Kristin requests church members to spread the word!  Morning arrival until finished.  Lunch will be provided.
These ladies have been amazingly strong throughout the last year and they have worked long hours to benefit these beautiful children!  Please come help if you can!

A Great Opportunity to Contribute to the Silent Auction!
So you can’t think of anything to put in the auction?  Craig and Cindy Cox are putting together some gift card flower arrangements.  Just pick up a gift card next time you go to the store, and they will clip it to a flower.  What fun it will be to see how the bidding goes!  You can give your cards this Sunday to Karen Seyler.

Mark your calendars!!

How is Our Communion Offering Used?

 Every Sunday we have a basket available for our Communion Offering.  The money that you give is divided three ways and distributed monthly or as needed.  Here is a reminder about where the Communion Offering goes.

One Roof – One Roof serves needy people in our area by providing food, clothing, and other emergency needs.  The Coweta County Food Pantry is housed at One Roof, and clothing and other items are available at the One Roof Thrift Store.  One Roof also has a women’s shelter, The Lodge.
 
Luthersville Senior Center – The Center is housed in an old school in Luthersville. The seniors come together three days a week for sharing devotionals, praying, singing favorite church songs, quilting, having lunch, and offering support to each other.  Cokes Chapel folks visit the center quarterly, taking part in their devotional time and then serving lunch to the group.
            
Needy Family Fund – This part of the offering helps people in our church and community who are having trouble with basic needs such as bills, rent, and food.

Mark your calendars!!

Thank you from the Thaxton family
 
We want to thank you all so much for a wonderfully welcoming first Sunday for our family. Between the handshakes, hugs, fried chicken, and all the banana pudding we can handle, this has been hospitality at its best. Thank you for showing us the love of Christ. Your generosity and graciousness made our family feel so welcomed into the Cokes Chapel Family. We hope to see you again on Sunday as we join together in worship.
 
In faith, hope, and love,
Rev. Carson Thaxton, Kathryn, Kara, Charlotte, and Caden

Cokes Chapel was blessed by another eagle project this weekend by Scout Dylan Thomas. This project basically removed the barrier of debris between the traditional cemetery and the unmarked cemetery, provided space for a cross shaped post for a historical marker type sign, and cleared a pathway down the center.  Scouts and volunteers also removed all of the large branches and debris in the unmarked cemetery area.  There are 2 more scouts that have planned projects at Cokes Chapel in the future. One to repair and clean the gazebo, the other to add 23 more crosses to mark the other graves.

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.  As we go about our day we pray for Your guidance in our decisions, help us to see with Your compassion and wisdom.  In each action, may we grow in service, giving with faith in God’s power to complete all things for God’s glory. 
Lord we pray for ourselves, for our church, community and world.  We face 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.

 “Ketchup or Catsup?”

“Ketchup or Catsup?” It turns out that either spelling is correct.  Both spellings refer to the condiment we all recognize.  Evidently the beginnings of Catsup started with a base of fish sauce from the Far East.  Who knew?  Somewhere along the line, tomato base was added, and over time the fish was dropped and the sugar and vinegar were added. The spelling of ketchup is used much more frequently than is catsup.

For our purposes, we have been using Catsup – since it is a short step to use Catch-up to remind us of the need for Cokes to be in good financial standing. Catch up or giving also mean the same thing. 

Giving is part of our spiritual response to the gift of love and salvation that God sent us in Jesus Christ.  Giving is never a demand, but a joyful response to what God has already done for us.  Giving of our resources is both a spiritual and tactical action that speaks of our relationship to God, in trust, confidence and in full recognition that we can not out give God.  Won’t you reflect on your giving?  Will you support your incoming Pastor and Cokes with the gift of freedom from financial strains?  Plan to come this week, and when invited, bring your special offering to the altar and pray for Pastor Carson and his family.

 

Visit our website: cokeschapel.org to give regularly or make a one time gift.

                        


 

The Prayer Team has returned to in-person gatherings.  We meet at 5:00 pm on Wednesday nights in the Fellowship Hall.  If the Fellowship Hall is in use we will meet in the Eubanks Classroom.  Please join us!

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.  As we go about our day we pray for Your guidance in our decisions, help us to see with Your compassion and wisdom.  In each action, may we grow in service, giving with faith in God’s power to complete all things for God’s glory. 
Lord we pray for ourselves, for our church, community and world.  We face 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.
