The Lord is my light and my salvation -- whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life -- of whom shall I be afraid?

– Psalm 27:1, NIV

Session Highlights - April 19 , 2021

  • All Elders and Staff expressed joy over our Easter worship experiences. Whether you attended the tent service or attended one of our other services, Easter Day was moving, and our worship together a symbol of hope as we emerge from the virus restrictions.
  • All teams are reading plans for startup of indoor worship on May 2nd with Sunday School and Small Groups to quickly follow. The Worship Ministry Team will disseminate a guide to our congregation about returning to in-person worship
  • Nine new members (eight confirmands and one adult), including two by baptism, were added to the JCPC church family in the past month. The Session was also informed of two deaths: Carol Dahlenberg on March 24th and Norma Van Buren who died on February 3rd.
  • The annual review of our Session minutes by Presbytery took place and our minutes were described as accurate and exemplary.
  • Year-to-date income and expense balance is a positive $17,191 -- which includes JCPC receiving a refund of $9,053 from the EILD loan program.
  • CanCare Atlanta is searching for a new CEO.
  • The Connecting Ministry Team will staff the next “Fifth Sunday” in May for a “biscuit giveaway” prior to worship services.
  • We are moving forward with the installation of equipment in the Great Hall and Chapel which will provide for live online worship services.
  • The Missions Ministry Team continues to prayerfully discern options for the use of the new major gift. The Blood Drive collected 8 units of blood and HealthSouth forwarded a certificate acknowledging JCPC's consistent support.
  • The Health Team reported on changes to our existing HVAC that will significantly improve airflow to the new buildings for in-person worship beginning May 2nd. Covid epidemic metrics are still favorable for reopening the campus in a staged approach, beginning with an 11:00 o'clock AM worship service on May 2nd.

Prayer for Today

Thank you, God, for the life of Johns Creek Presbyterian Church that continues on even through these difficult times. Thank you for our elders and staff who make up our Session -- for their faithfulness and seeking to discern your will and direction for our church. Guide them and us by your Holy Spirit -- that we may faithfully do your work in our world. We pray this in the name of Jesus the Christ. Amen.
