Kingdom Prayer Focus

Lord God, we give you thanks for the gift of spiritual armor that you offer us! You offer to cover us with everything we need to live out our walk with Christ, as long as we do our part by putting on that armor. None of us are exempt from the fight, so help us to persevere in chasing after the faith with good conscience. We ask for your help to keep us on track with our belief in Jesus so we don’t fall off the narrow road. Oh Lord, give us the desire to pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance, and gentleness! Then let our pursuit of these things develop into a way of life which results in a reflection of your Son. May that reflection draw those who are searching for you into a saving knowledge of Jesus! We give you all the glory in His mighty name, amen.


McConnell Church members - Don't forget to submit your recommendations for the office of deacon for the coming year. Our deacons serve for terms of three years after having been nominated and elected by the church. Nominees must be a McConnell church member for at least one year and meet the biblical requirements for serving. Paper recommendation forms are available in the Welcome Center or you can make your recommendations on the church website. The deadline to make a recommendation is June 19th.

Spark imagination and kick creativity into high gear at Spark Studios! Join Pastor Steve Awtrey and his VBS team for a fun-filled, fast-paced week, June 20th thru June 24th, 9:00 am until noon. Help us be prepared & successful by pre-registering your kids online at www.mcconnellchurch.org. If you would like to serve in VBS this year, please contact Pastor Steve at [email protected].

There will be 2 VBS Workdays on Saturday, June 11th and Saturday June 18th at 10:00 a.m. We will also need help setting up tables on Sunday June 19th after the morning worship service. Call the church office for more details.

Parent Child Dedication is a public commitment you make before God, your church, and your family. The dedication service on Sunday, June 19th provides you, the parent(s), an opportunity to express publicly your desire to lead and spiritually nurture your child in partnership with the church, so your child will develop a desire to love and serve God.  Call the church office or register online here to sign up.

Love people? The McConnell Greeters Team is looking for volunteers to serve before Sunday services (SS and Worship)  for an entire month once a year to welcome both members and guests. If you love to smile and say hello, then this is a great opportunity for you to get to know our church congregation! Contact Lorene Avery at 706-994-7811 or email [email protected].

Our library staff wants everyone to know that we have books for all ages. We have cook books, biographies, research, spiritual growth, book studies, as well as fiction. There is a children’s  section full of Christian books. Bring your families on Wednesday from 10 a.m. to noon. Come and check us out on Sundays and Wednesdays before and after services as well.

Come join us on Sunday afternoon, July 3rd for our 4th Family Fun Fair from 3:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. in the FLC and outdoors. There will be games, entertainment, inflatables, and activities for all ages. Dinner will be provided by McConnell.
