17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 18 All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. 20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.

The Faith Pantry delivered 100 bags of toiletries, detergent, hand sanitizer, cereal, hotdogs and buns with cookies to Brumby Elementary School on July 27th.
We were able to deliver 40 filled backpacks (with the help of some of our friends of the pantry) to Powers Ferry Elementary, East Valley Elementary, and East Cobb Middle School. More school supplies are going to East Valley this week.
The Birthday Pans for our "Every Child Deserves a Birthday Cake" campaign were a huge success at all the schools we visited and we have already been contacted and took more to several schools. This will be an ongoing project of the Faith Pantry.
This outreach in our community could not be done without you. Your donations have been a blessing to so many.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
GREENBANANA SUNDAY -
Sunday August 29th we are asking for the congregation to bring the greenest bananas they can find to be delivered to the food pantry on Tuesday 31st. Saturday when you are out doing your shopping, pick up an extra bunch of green bananas and bring them to church with you on Sunday morning!
JUST ONE THING - BELOW you will find the sales ads for this week. There are some wonderful ads this week. With school coming to an end for many families that receive breakfast and lunch the need will be great to keep the children fed, as well as many seniors in our community. This week is a great time to stock up on your favorite breakfast item that you would like to share with a family in need! Just remember that JUST ONE THING you would love to share! Also if you would like to take a peek at our new “Food Pantry,” also known as the bat cave,… let me know and I would love to show it to you!!! God’s richest blessings on you and your families!
