Dominican Republic Mission Trip
June 15 - June 22, 2015 - ONE WEEK AWAY!
We're one week away from the start of this year's mission trip to the Dominican Republic!

The sauna that was donated to benefit our mission team fund did not sell by sealed bid last week, so we have placed it on eBay to try to sell it there. The eBay listing ends at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, June 9. If you would like to check out that eBay item, go to this link.

For complete information about this year's trip and the history of our work in the Dominican Republic since 2001, go here.

Our Junior and Middle School EYC groups are collecting hotel/sample sized toiletries which they will bag and send to The Haven for their clients. There will be a collection bin in the Parish Hall. Thank you so much for helping our youth do God's work in our community!

Friends, Family, and the Fourth at Honey Creek
Open to everyone in the Diocese of Georgia
If you enjoyed the recent parish weekend at Honey Creek and would like to do something like that again soon, or if you were not able to attend the weekend, you might want to check out another similar opportunity sponsored by the Diocese of Georgia that is coming up July 1-5, 2015. Honey Creek is open during this time for anyone in the Diocese to come and enjoy time with friends and family. 

This week falls in between camp sessions, and the schedule is yours to design! Enjoy meals in the dining hall, swim in the pool, swing on the tire swings, ride bicycles, go kayaking, visit Jekyll and St. Simons Islands, go to Summer Waves, and spend some happy time time with family and friends. There will be a parade before lunch on July 4th, so bring your flags to march in the parade or wave and cheer from the sidelines. Come for all of those days, or just one or two, or make it a day trip and enjoy lunch at the Creek!

Contact Carolyn at Honey Creek (912-265-9218) to make reservations for lodging and meals in the dining hall.
