  • Bible Study: The Epic of EdenBible Study: The Epic of Eden - 10/17/2018 - 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM  The Old Testament of the Bible can feel like a junk drawer – a disorganized collection of important stuff we don’t want to lose yet don’t know what to do with.  From the Pentateuch to patriarchs and from kings to prophets, it can feel like a puzzle we’ve tried to put together but wind up putting it back in the box because it’s too complicated.  This twelve-week study will explore the Old Testament which will lead to fresh New Testament faith.  Debby Stikes will lead this study.  It will begin Wednesday, September 5, and will end Wednesday, December 5.  (6:30 p.m., Stephen Ministry room)  A donation of $20 would be accepted.  
  • Chase the Lion: Stepping Confidently Into the UnknownChase the Lion: Stepping Confidently Into the Unknown - 10/17/2018 - 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM  Chase the Lion:  Stepping Confidently Into the Unknown   Inspired by a fearless warrior named Benaiah (2 Samuel 23:20) who changed the course of his future by winning a battle with a real lion, this eight-week study examines biblical and modern-day examples of people who were willing to put everything on the line, take risks, seize opportunities, face fears, embrace uncertainty, and look foolish when it comes to chasing after God-given opportunities.  Our current Christian culture doesn’t usually encourage sensible people to chase after risky opportunities and dreams.  We want to believe that if it’s a good decision, it will always feel safe because that’s the way God wants life to be.  But what if you discovered that the fulfilling life God wants for you is hiding behind a present problem, a past failure, or a lifelong fear?  Rev. Andrew Covington will lead this study.  It will begin Wednesday, August 22, and end Wednesday, October 24.  (6:30 p.m., Journey Classroom)  A $10 donation would be accepted.

Preschool Grants

Central Georgia EMC Foundation/Operation Roundup Donates $2,500 to the Griffin First United Methodist Church Preschool and Kindergarten

 

GRANT2014

Small Change Makes a Big Difference in local communities!  The Central Georgia EMC Foundation Board, which oversees the Operation Round Up® (ORU) program for CGEMC, recently awarded the Griffin First United Methodist Church Preschool and Kindergarten , a grant totaling $2,500 for purchasing a MimioTeach Interactive System and Interactive Projector.

“This is a great example of a worthy organization within our community that can benefit from the Operation Round Up® program,” says Lynne Tanner, CGEMC Foundation chairperson.  “Of course, none of it would be possible without the generosity of all our participating members who volunteer to have their electric bills rounded up each month.”

Operation Round Up® is a community support program designed to raise funds to support worthwhile charitable and educational needs within the 14 counties served by Central Georgia EMC.  The CGEMC Foundation is accepting applications, which are available online at www.cgemc.com or picked up in person at the CGEMC office at 923 S. Mulberry St, in Jackson.  Any eligible 501(c)(3), government institutions, and civic organizations seeking assistance in CGEMC’s 14-county service territory are encouraged to apply. Contributions will be granted in the categories of health and human services, and education. The maximum of a single application is $5,000, with a maximum contribution of $10,000 per year to an eligible organization.
