Global 6K Walk for Water: May 19


The Transformers Sunday School Class is at it again! We are partnering with World Vision on their 6K Walk for Water being held May 19th. 

The Transformers' walk will be held somewhere in the Peachtree Corners area, final route to be determined.

Why 6K you may ask. Well, that is the average distance a person has to walk in a developing country to get water! Hard to believe for something that we take for granted, yet this is true. 

To make matters worse, the water is often contaminated. Every day, 835 children under the age of five die from diarrhea caused by contaminated water, poor sanitation, and improper hygiene. 

Here's the good news. You and I can help; we can make a difference through World Vision's Clean Water Walk. Go to Global 6K for Water and sign up to walk with the Transformers, or to donate. 

You don't have to be a member of our Sunday School class or even our church to participate. Go to: Find a Host, then Georgia, then Transformers to sign up. 

We have set a goal of raising $2500 dollars. You can make this happen. If you have any questions, please give me a call or e-mail. My e-mail is spt404@hotmail.com and 770-833-0091 my number. 

Our past fund raisers have been a great success thanks to you. This one can be too! 

Blessings
Sam Tapley


Memorial Day Flowers

 

On Sunday, May 27 we will have an  arrangement in memory of those who have died in service to our country.

 

Their names will be listed in the bulletin, so please turn in names to be included to the church office. (Note that all veterans will be honored on Veteran’s Day Sunday, November 11)
