It’s the middle of the summer…

And being in the middle of things is sometimes a strange place to be. On the one hand, new patterns (hopefully of rest, relaxation, and recovery) have taken hold, but on the other hand, you get the sense that soon those patterns will be displaced by new ones as Fall arrives.

I know it feels too early to say, but before too long, teachers will be reporting to their classrooms, our children will be heading back to school, Georgia Southern students will be arriving, and perhaps the air will even start to turn a little bit cooler.

But before we get to the Fall, let’s celebrate the summer together!

On July 19, we will host our Annual Watermelon Cutting on our front lawn. This tradition was started across the street at Georgia Southern University in 1948 by Zach S. Henderson, a member at Pittman Park and the president of what was then Georgia Teacher’s College. Dr. Henderson was instrumental in our church’s founding and early leadership, and this sweet summertime tradition is a chance to celebrate who we are and welcome our community onto our campus.

But… we need your help to get the word out!

So, invite your friends, neighbors, and coworkers to join us! Talk about how much fun we had last year! Share our event on Facebook! As summer slips away, let’s gather again to enjoy a sweet treat with our community.

God bless,
