IT'S ALMOST HERE! Five years ago we adopted our Long-range plan called Sharpening Our Focus: Putting God's Vision Into Action. The fifth and final goal of the plan was to "Explore the feasibility of constructing a multi-purpose facility that would enhance opportunities for fellowship, recreation, education, and worship." This Sunday, September 11, 2016, we dedicate our new building. I believe God has been at work throughout this process. There were many times this could have gone off the rails -- but somehow, through God's grace, it just kept moving forward. God must really want this building completed.
Join us Sunday at 11:00 a.m. at the Great Hall for worship. There will be no
9:00 a.m. service this Sunday, but there will be the regular Sunday Classes at 10:00 a.m. It is also our Kirkin' o' the Tartans service, so there will be bagpipes, drums, tartans, and even a few kilts. Our guest preacher, Dr. Tom Tewell, has spoken here before and at our Men's Retreat. He is one of the best around! Tom was pastoring the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church on September 11, 2001, when the planes struck the World Trade Center Towers. Tom will be sharing what it was like that day in his message entitled, "Where Do You Turn When the Walls Come Tumbling Down?" You will not want to miss it and I encourage you to invite some friends join you.
Sunday evening at 6:30 p.m., The Maranatha Band from the Dominican Republic will once again join us on their North American fall tour. These are not only gifted musicians, they are dedicated Christians who share the love of Christ in inspiring ways. Please make plans to come as one way to support the mission outreach of JCPC. We need you there! Again, bring a friend to join you. You will be glad you did and it will mean the world to our friends from the DR.
See you Sunday!
Prayer for Today
We thank you, God, that when we get the chance to get up on the mountaintop and look back over the past years, we can see your handiwork. Thank you for leading us to this time of celebration in the life of our church. Help us to make a difference in Johns Creek and beyond. We pray this in the strong name of Jesus the Christ. Amen.
