My Study Break
I will again be going up to Sewanee for a Summer study break this year, my last Summer session in my continued doctoral work. I will be away from June 6 to 24, coming back briefly on Sunday June 19 to welcome Will Gotmer to staff. During this study time, I will be mostly away from my phone and email, to rest and focus. If there is an emergency, either Reba or Cynthia can reach me to let me know. As I slip away to rest, I encourage you to do so as well!
Summer Children’s Chapel
During the Summer, Children’s Chapel on Sunday mornings will be held in the Catechesis Room (Room 210 in the Children’s Wing, where they have Sunday School during the year). Parents, please continue to bring children into the Nave with you to begin worship. They will be blessed and led to Children’s Chapel by their leaders each week, and will return to the Nave to join you during Communion.
Youth and Parents Baseball Night
Parents and Youth are invited out to watch the Gwinnett Braves for a Wednesday night game on June 8. We’ll leave Grace at 5:30 and head down to watch the game and eat some baseball food. Tickets are only $10. Reserve your spot.

Prayer Practice Class
We will be taking a summer break from our contemplative practice time on Thursdays. Until we resume in the fall, we hope each one of us will put into practice some type of reflection and growth time we have experienced together.
God’s peace to you,
