Friday Fives

1. Sunday Worship - This Sunday is Trinity Sunday! Over the last several weeks we have looked at a few of our more important days in the life of the early church and how those days impact our faith journeys today. We have look at how Christ's Ascension points to salvation and how the arrival of the Holy Spirit give us that ever present companion to share our faith.  This week we will look to the Trinity and how our Triune God models for us the life we are to live.   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 Ordinands 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. Name tags - Many people ask, what are some ways we can welcome our new pastor. One of the best ways we can welcome our new pastor is by wearing our name tags. This will give Pastor Brian, Faith and Abbey the opportunity to put names with faces and get to know you all that much faster. Remember, while you all only have three names to remember they have an entire congregation. So please do them this kindness and wear your name tag every week in worship. If you do not have a name tag, please let the church office know and we will get you one made. Thanks in advance for you help!

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!
