Our first ever multi-state virtual Christian women's small group that we're dubbing "Soul Sisters" has begun!

When Erin Martin and Alisa Smallwood put their heads together, they decided that because the church has no walls, they wanted to extend an invitation for a new women’s study to those beyond our church and beyond our city and state lines, too. They wanted to bring together a diverse group of women who have many different experiences and perspectives to create this new virtual community and talk about God and hard things. As of now, we have women from many different states, of different ages, and backgrounds. We’re so excited to kick this off!

WHEN: Saturday, August 31st at 10 am.

WHERE: The front steps of the Atlanta First Sanctuary.

On Saturday, August 31st at 10 am, the annual Dragon Con Parade will march down Peachtree Street right past our front doors! This will be an excellent opportunity for the Atlanta First family to engage with the multitude of visitors to the city during Dragon Con. We will need volunteers to offer a warm presence and radical hospitality as we hand out water bottles and comic books to passers by, tell them about our church, and invite them to join us in worship on Sunday. We will also need volunteers during the week to help label the water bottles and set up for the parade.

WHEN: Every third Saturday of the month at 10 am.

WHERE: Here at Atlanta First UMC

Join us as we serve lunch to our homeless and hungry friends that live around Atlanta First! We will prepare and serve bagged lunches, and share a time of fellowship and prayer with those we serve.
