Summer Sack Lunch Program
The Summer Sack Lunch Program is an excellent opportunity for families, grandparents, groups and individuals to GIVE BACK to our community. For seven Mondays,  June 6th through July 25th, Christ Our Shepherd will provide sack lunches for children who otherwise might not have a lunch to eat! YOU can help by making sandwiches, packing or delivering lunches to hungry children. YOU can drive a lunch route (Fayette County) for the summer or split it with others. It is extremely rewarding to meet, feed and interact with these families/children each week.
A typical Monday is:
·      Spend 30-45 minutes making and packing lunches and/or
·      Delivering the lunches – takes about an hour.
The summer of 2022, COS provided lunches to 214 children each Monday. Over seven weeks 1504 lunches were packed and delivered to children ages 3-18, 1870 sandwiches were prepared and over 3,000 cookies were baked. Sixteen different drivers/teams covered nine routes for lunch deliveries.
Ways you can help:
  • Join us for as many Mondays as you can between June 5th and July 24th: sandwich making is from 9:00-10:00 and packing bags from 10:00-11:00 in the Fellowship Hall.
  • Donate DRINKS (Capri Sun, Kool Aid Jammers), INDIVIDUALLY PACKAGED VARIETY PACKS OF CHIPS or PUBLIX Gift Cards that will help purchase bread for our sandwiches. Please leave at the display table in the Narthex.
  • Pray for this ministry and these families that they will be nourished with Christ’s love.
Call the office (770-487-8717) for information and to get connected with our
summer lunch coordinator, Ellen Pfundt.

CONNECTING MINISTRIES & WEEKLY SMALL GROUPS:  Barbara Anderson [email protected].

Welcome to the season of summer at COS.  Although this is a popular time for travel, we continue to offer opportunities for meaningful and active connections.  Would you like to subscribe to our COS emails? Please click here.

One really wonderful way to CONNECT your mind and spirit is to join a Small Group - this group can be a Fellowship Group such as ROMEOS (Retired Old Men Eating Out) or CANVAS Art Ministry, our casual Wednesday gathering in the Conference Room led by Pastor Miriam, or a G.I.F.T. (Growing in Faith Together) Group which meet both at the church and in homes.  Each week, the Sunday lectionary text is discussed during TEXT TALK which meet on Sundays at 9:45am.     

Small Group

SUNDAYS: TEXT TALK (9:45AM Conference Room) Meet every Sunday to discuss the weekly lectionary text.

WEDNESDAYS:  Join us at 3pm in a casual small group setting  led by Pastor Miriam. This group meets in the conference room.
