Friday Fives

1. Sunday Worship - This Sunday is Pentecost! The Sunday we celebrate the ascension of the Holy Spirit upon the believers in Jerusalem. This is a tremendously important moment in the life of the church and one we need to celebrate with great enthusiasm! Wear something red and come and join us this Sunday as we welcome the Holy Spirit into our midst and look at the power we can garner from this relationship with the Advocate! I hope to see you there!

2. Stop Hunger Now - As a response to us meeting our Advent Conspiracy Challenge in 2014 we are going to participate with Stop Hunger Now and hold a meal packaging event here at Druid Hills. We have set up Saturday, June 6th, from 9am-12pm as our time and day for this event. We are circulating signup sheets for you to register and claim your spot. We will package around 10,000 meals for starving children around the world and we need your help to make this happen. Besides, it is a whole lot of fun! The sign up sheets are out and we need about 20 more volunteers. Invite a friend to come help and sign up today!

3. Bishop's Offering at Annual Conference - Every year we take up a collection to support causes picked by our Bishop and present our gift during the Licensing/Commission/Ordination Service at Annual Conference. This year one half of the offering will support our Imagine No Malaria campaign, and one half will help fund an Ordinand Pilgrimage to the Holy Land, supporting the continued growth and learning of our newly ordained clergy. If you would like to donate to this offering, you can simply mark your envelope "Bishop Offering". We will continue to collect donations through June 7th. If you would like more information about this offering, please click here.

4. Usher Training - There will be a training session for all those interested in serving as an usher in worship. This session will be brief and held immediately after worship. The intent of this trainings will be to allow new people to participate and make sure we all understand the best practices of what is needed for this role. The usher training will be this Sunday, May 24th. I hope you see you there!

5. Welcome Pastor Brian and Family! - I am excited to introduce to you our new pastor and his family; Brian Sanderson and his wife Faith, son Bryce, and daughter Abbey.

Please keep them in prayer as they make the transition of saying goodbye to the church they serve now and prepare themselves for ministry with you. I also want to invite you to reach out to them and welcome them into the Druid Hills family. I am excited for how the Holy Spirit will work through Brian to lead this congregation as well as for the opportunity you all will have to get to know his family.

Have a great weekend and I will see you Sunday!
