Journeys-Session-6

Stories from The Greatest Generation
Meet some WWII veterans from our congregation and hear the stories of their experience. Facilitated by David Champa, retired Delta pilot and member of the U.S. Airforce. David is working on a Ph.D. in History at Georgia State University.
Oct. 1st in Fellowship Hall

Love Letters: A Study of 1st, 2nd and 3rd John (continued)
Tucked in an often overlooked corner of the New Testament, John’s letters reveal to us the successes, struggles and sorrows present in an early Christian community. Looking carefully at these texts, we will develop a deeper appreciation for the faith of these early believers while being challenged to grow in our own faith. We will remember that “God is Love,” (1 John 4:8) then seek to better understand how to reflect God’s light and love in our world. Led by Chris George.
Oct. 1st in the Chapel & Oct. 8th & 22nd in Fellowship Hall

Grief Support Group
This is a group for people who are dealing with loss and grief. It is designed to be an open-ended support group, providing a safe place to process feelings, share stories and offer encouragement. Grieving alongside others who are experiencing loss is one of the most therapeutic ways to cope and this group is a place to journey together towards healing and hope. Led by John Moore. John is a counselor with the Care & Counseling Center of Georgia. Register with Kathy Dobbins 678.533.0548 or kdobbins@smokerisebaptist.org.
Oct. 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd in Room: 124 (under the Gym)

Seamless Faith: Simple Practices for Daily Family Life
How do we pass along our faith in Christ to our children through the daily routines of our lives? When do we talk with our kids about what they learn in Sunday School and worship? What are some ways to turn the ordinary moments into sacred moments for our family? These are some of the questions we will try to answer as we talk about simple practices to help families of all kinds with the tools they need to seamlessly weave faith into their everyday lives. Join the discussion as we share ways that have worked for your family, learn new ways to nurture faith in our children and support one another along the way. Facilitated by Josh Speight.
Oct. 1st, 15th, 22nd (no session on Oct. 8) in The Library

Garden Series: “Container and Flower Garden Planting for Georgia”
We will learn what the words, “thrillers, fillers, and spillers” mean when planting containers. We will also talk about choosing proper plants for containers as well as shade and sunny gardens and how to plant them properly. Local resources for gardening, planting, and conservation will be explored. Please sign up in the church office or contact Carol Ann Fulgham at 404-285-1567 or carol514@bellsouth.net.

The Feeding of the 5,000, A Compassionate Story
Led by Dr. Richard Davis
Oct. 15th in S223

The Agape Meal or “Love Feast”
The early church observed the practice of meeting together for a common meal before partaking of the Lord’s Supper. The meal became known as the Agape meal (translated “love feast” in Jude 12). Join us for a re-creation of this meal using foods mentioned in the Bible. What did the ancient Israelites and first century Christians eat? Come and find out and enjoy some healthy, delicious food and the fellowship that this meal was for the early church. This will be a sampling of many different foods, not necessarily a substitute for dinner. Led by Kathy Dobbins. REGISTRATION WILL BE HELPFUL FOR PLANNING PURPOSES. Register by contacting Kathy Dobbins at kdobbins@smokerisebaptist.org or 678.533.0548.
Oct. 15th in Room 223
