WORSHIP LEADER ORIENTATION
Sunday, September 22nd
Over the last year, we have been blessed with many new people to the life of SSCC. Several of you have graciously volunteered to help lead worship by reading scripture, leading the pastoral prayer and offering the invitation to communion. Some of you have asked for direction as it relates to helping lead worship. To this end, we are going to have a brief worship leader orientation next Sunday, September 22nd.  We will offer two sessions, one at 8:30 am and one at 9:15 am in the sanctuary. Whether you have been leading worship at SSCC for years or want to volunteer for the first time, we invite you to participate. There will also be an opportunity that morning to sign up for different roles on different dates. If you have any questions, please contact Bryant Gibson.
INTERNATIONAL DINING
Our group will meet on Monday, September 23rd at 7 PM at Casi Cielo, 6125 Roswell Road, Sandy Springs. This new Oaxacan restaurant is rated by TripAdvisor as the #1 Mexican restaurant in Sandy Springs and the #8 overall. Yelp reviewers give them a 4.5 out of 5 rating. Reservations are a must. If you plan on joining us please contact Milt Hill via email at milthill@comcast.net.
SAVE THE DATE!
Following worship on Sunday, September 29th, please stay in the sanctuary for a Town Hall Meeting. The Visioning Team will be sharing with you the mission statement and core values on which they have been working since the Visioning Summit. They will also be sharing next steps and answering questions about the process. Hope you can be part of this important meeting!
