Upcoming Events

Check back to this page to see the events that our community is hosting in the coming weeks and months!

At this time, our church building is closed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and our events are more limited than usual. Despite our physical separation, we continue to seek connection with congregants through online meetings. These include not only the Sunday service, but have also included regular Mindfulness Moments on Facebook, and weekly prayer and hangout times for kids and adults via Zoom. Links for Zoom meetings can be found in the weekly email.

Weekly Events

 

— Services are held every Sunday at 10 AM (via Facebook Live and on the Sermons page). Beginning in July, services will also be regularly held in person on the Church Green.

— Bibles and Bagels is a Bible study focusing on both Old and New Testament texts. Study occurs Sundays at 9 AM (via Zoom).

— During summer 2020, the Church-Wide Engagement group completed a multiple week discussion on Dr. Ibram X. Kendi’s How to Be an Antiracist and is now focusing on how to be antiracists in our community. This group meets on Wednesdays at 6 PM (via Zoom).

Special Events

— Our summer tradition of Wednesday evening hangouts will resume on July 21st! We know how excited you are to get back together, but we also recognize there is still some uneasiness around large groups of people. In an effort to help everyone feel a bit more comfortable, we will have 2 mystery locations available for the 21st. If we have a large number of respondents, folks will be randomly assigned to one of the locations. This should help people to spread out a bit while still enjoying each other’s company and hopefully allay any trepidation folks may have about joining us. You are welcome and encouraged to bring a food or drink to share, but your presence is what we are really looking forward to! Registration is required and we ask that you register by Sunday, July 18 at this link.

— On Sunday, July 25th, we will be blessed by the preaching of Rev. Dr. John Vaughn. John is the Executive Pastor at the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, GA. Many of you know him from his days growing up in our church and as a youth in former Youth Minister, Rev. Hugh Huntley’s, ministry. Following his preaching, he and others will also have a time to celebrate the life and ministry of Hugh Huntley. More details to come, but mark that date!

— On Sunday, August 15th, we will have yet another guest preacher. Rev. Gary McCaslin is a retired ABC minister who spent many years with us as Associate Pastor during the 80s and 90s. He will be preaching on August 15th for our worship service, and we will have another time of food and fun following the service. Rumor has it that we might just bring back some food trucks! Stay tuned for more information!

— All services for July and August are planned to be outside on the lawn. If inclement weather is forecast, either temperature or precipitation related, we will not cancel worship, but instead move our service inside the sanctuary. If this situation arises, we will send out an additional email on, or before Sunday morning at 8:00 am. For any services inside the sanctuary, masks and social distancing will be required for all. Whether outside or inside, services will continue to be livestreamed on the website and Facebook Live.

Upcoming Scrogin Book Forums

The Scrogin Great Issues Book Forum meets monthly (except during the summer) to discuss a book of interest relating to a contemporary theme or concern. A listing of books for the current series can be found here and in the Going Library on the second floor. Copies of each book are also available for loan. During the COVID-19 pandemic, books can be obtained by contacting the front office and arranging for a pick-up. We had a great line up for the 2020-2021 season and will kick off the 2021-2022 program year in September.
