Advent 2016 Events!

A full calendar of Advent events is below-- and easily shareable with all of your friends! We hope you'll attend all!

EPC First Saturday Movie for December
The Ref
In this comedy, "[a] cat burglar is forced to take a bickering, dysfunctional family hostage on Christmas Eve." Check it out at!


Sign-ups for the 2017 MLK Service Project Day are under way!  This year will make our eighth year of service assisting seniors with repairs to their houses.  Please sign up for one of our work days/times!
Sat., 1/14 -- morning or evening
Sun., 1/15 - afternoon
Mon., 1/16 -- morning or afternoon
Saturday morning times usually fill up the fastest, so please keep that in mind.  As always, we need those who will labor, those who will provide food, and those who will provide prayer.  We're excited about this opportunity once again!

Holly Wreaths
In the top of a double boiler, melt together:
30 large marshmallows
1 stick butter, no substitutions
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. green food coloring, or more for deeper green

Mix well.  Shape into miniature holly wreaths on waxed paper and decorate with cinnamon candies.  Let harden and store between layers of waxed paper.              -- Cindy Hinton

EPC Centering Prayer & Lectio Divina
Thursdays at 8 pm in the Sanctuary
No prior experience with the practices of centering prayer or lectio divina ("divine reading") is necessary to take part; the group can give you what you need to get started. All are warmly welcomed. We meet for one hour, including at least 25 minutes of prayer.

We deepen our relationship to God by surrendering to our mutual love, opening our hearts and taking advantage of thin places between us and God.

For more information, please call Truette Stubbs, 404-667-4154.

_"Be still and know that I am God."_
- Psalm 46:10
EPC's Syrian Refugee Family
Our refugee family is settled and continues to be grateful for our help and service!  However, there are still some needs for the family, including the following:
  • transportation to appointments
  • tutoring
  • English practice
  • field trips
  • help with shopping
Remember that in order to have direct contact with the family, you must submit a waiver and background check to New American Pathways.  Forms are in the narthex, and it is free.  For the Signup Genius link or more info, please see Carolyn Olive.
Gather at The Well....
A worshipping community at EPC
Sunday evenings from 5:30-6:00 PM in the Fellowship Hall

The Well is a worshipping community sponsored by the Presbyterian Church (USA).  We want to meet people where they are in the community and in their faith, to share the good news of God's love in Jesus Christ.  We want people to see God at work in their lives and to feel revitalized as they follow Jesus in their everyday lives.
