*Affirmation of Faith
The Apostles’ Creed
Dr. Amy Morgan
I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ
his only Son our Lord: who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; the third day he rose
from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father
Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the
Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
Lighting of the Advent Wreath - The Love Candle

condemns, and violates our covenant one with another.

A Morning Prayer and The Lord’s Prayer
Rev. Susan Allen Grady
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us
from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

IMPORTANT NEWS-Save this article
Scheduled Electrical Outage for Church
Due to construction, there is a scheduled electrical outage at Oak Grove’s main
building Monday, December 28 - Saturday, January 2. The building will be closed
due to the absence of electricity and the consequent disabling of life safety equipment such as fire alarms and emergency lighting. No one may be in the building. We
will open a temporary office in Scout Hall of the YCS Building for deliveries and
people who would like to drop off their end of year offering. However, during this
time, since phone and email depend on power, there will be no phone service at the
church and no email access for any person on the staff. To report a pastoral emergency, such as death or hospitalization, you must come to the temporary church
office or call the staff directly on their mobile phones:
• Glenn Ethridge
404-512-2229. Glenn is on call December 23 December 27.
• Susan Allen Grady 404-936-1258. Susan is on call December 28 – January 2.
• Amy Morgan
• Dale Smith
This is very important. Please save this article.
To contact staff during the outage, you must call them directly using the
numbers above. We request your respectful consideration of our staff during the
holidays; please call staff only in the event of a non-financial emergency.
New Groups Forming Now!
Now is the time to join a Covenant Group!
New groups will be forming in January. If you
didn’t join a new group in August or you are
new to the church, this is a great way to meet
others in the congregation while growing
deeper in your faith. Registration is now open
on the church website: www.ogumc.org (click
the Covenant Groups banner). For more
information, contact Discipleship Ministry
chairs Dusty ([email protected]) and
Angela ([email protected]) Schaffner.
For healthy marriages
wanting to improve
Would you like to be a GREETER?
First impressions count and warm
welcomes go a long way! We are seeking
additional people to help provide a
positive first experience to OGUMC
Greeters are needed for 8:30, 9:35 and 11
o’clock services. The short shifts allow you
to have a big impact on our visitors’
experiences and, thus, our church’s growth
with a very short time commitment (only
about 30 minutes once a month!).
There will be four Greeter teams, each led by a Team Leader. Team 1 will serve on the first
Sunday of the month, team 2 on the second Sunday of the month, etc. There are four
months each year which have five Sundays. The four teams will each take a turn staffing
one of those months. You can specify during which Sunday and which service you would
like to serve and, thus, which team you will be on.
Would you like to be a Greeter team leader? The team leader will remind his/her team that
their Sunday is approaching and coordinating with the greeters to determine who is staffing
each time (8:30, 9:35 or 11 am) and location (portico, narthex, nursery/Christian School
entrance). We already have two leaders so just need two more. Sunday school classes,
covenant groups and other groups are encouraged to consider signing up as a team
If you have not already, please contact Amity Farrar ([email protected] or 404-4323465) if you are interested in being a greeter or greeter leader. Thank you!
Glenn Ethridge will be leading a marriage
enrichment workshop, Wednesday evenings in
room 218, January 20, 27, and February 3.
This workshop is for couples looking to
strengthen their marriage; it is not therapy for
marriages in trouble. The workshop will use
the Prepare/Enrich material Glenn uses in
pre-marital counseling. We will discuss
communication, identification of relationship
strengths, conflict resolution, and other
building blocks of better marriages. Each
person takes an online survey and pays online
($30/couple). Glenn will provide the confidential survey results to each couple. The report
will guide the confidential conversation among
the marriage partners. There will be multiple
couples present, but all conversations are
between marriage partners only. This workshop has no required group sharing aspect.
Participants must pre-register by January 5,
2016, in order to take the survey between
January 6-13 and have the results ready in
time for the first meeting on January 20. You
may register online (www.ogumc.org) or by
contacting Rachel Fullerton (404-636-7558
or [email protected]).
Advent Offering
for Missions
Advent is a season when we prepare ourselves spiritually
for the coming of the Christ Child at Christmas. One
of the ways that many people observe this season is by
giving to someone in need. A wonderful way to do that
is through the Oak Grove Advent Offering. Each year
our Advent Offering funds mission ministries that
meet the real needs of people. From feeding children at Montclair Elementary School to
caring for low income senior adults at Mountain View Personal Care Home, your Advent
offering makes a difference!
Please use the special Advent offering envelope that was mailed or pick one up at church.
Checks should be made payable to Oak Grove UMC and marked “Advent Offering.” You
can also give online (www.oakgroveumc.org). Thank you for your generosity.
Blankets for Homeless
Preserving a tradition initiated by Andrew
Ethridge, on the day after Christmas, lunch and blankets will be delivered to homeless persons in
downtown Atlanta. If you would like to donate a blanket, please deliver to the church office.
Holiday Schedule
Youth Sunday School will not meet on Sunday,
December 27. Merry Christmas! We will meet again
on Sunday, January 3, 2016 at 9:35 a.m. in the gym.

community support. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! A special thank you to

tree lot and volunteers. You are our tree lot angels!
2016 Summer Camp
Registration Open
“My friend, I think of you daily because I care and it’s true.” Do you have a camp song from
your childhood that will always hold a special place in your heart? In the case of Camp Glisson,
a camp and retreat center of the North Georgia Conference, “My Friend” sung by counselors to
their campers at the close of camp each week during the summer is one that holds a special place
in each camper and counselors heart. For a week every summer for 92 years, children and
teenagers from across Georgia flood Camp Glisson’s campus with shouts of laughter, creek hikes,
camp outs, singing on the porch, and much more. If you are interested in signing up your child
or teenager to attend a week of camp at Village, Sparrowwood, or Outpost, visit
http://www.glisson.org/schedule. Registration is now open to all United Methodists and opens
for everyone January 1, 2016.
