Don’t miss our Terrific Thursday Lunch gatherings

Don’t miss our Terrific Thursday Lunch gatherings

Even though our Parish Hall has been temporarily out of commission while renovation work is happening at St. Gabriel’s, our Terrific Thursday Lunch is still happening. Rich and Debbie Roszel have been hosting the Terrific Thursday Lunch group at their home in Flowery Branch from 12 Noon until 1pm each Thursday and will continue to do so until the renovation in complete. We gather for food and fellowship, and would love to include you. Please let the Roszels know if you’d like to attend by calling the church office Monday – Friday from 9am – 6pm at 770-503-7555. (We don’t like to post personal addresses on the website so call first and to get the directions by phone, text or email.) This will also help the Roszels know how many people to expect. We hope you’ll make plans to attend!

Have you signed up for our Women’s Retreat 2023?

Have you signed up for our Women’s Retreat 2023?

The Women’s Retreat will be February 17-19, 2023, at Camp Mikell. This is open to all St. Gabriel’s women, past and present, and friends. The cost will be $175/person which covers lodging and meals. Responses can be sent to Nena Lund at nwlund@yahoo.com, or you can use the signup sheet in the Parish Hall.

The theme is “How can I keep from Singing?” We will sing the theme song on Sunday during the close of the retreat. Nena Lund, Lindsay Lemay and Esther Atkinson are working hard to prepare for the retreat. They are open to new ideas and reminders of things that have been special at past retreats. They welcome anyone who would like to be part of the planning.

In addition, we have one lady who planned to attend and has paid, but is now unable to go. She has requested that her payment be used as a scholarship to anyone who wants to attend but hasn’t signed up due to financial constraints. Contact Nena Lund at nwlund@yahoo.com.

Restoration Continues – Services Resume!

Restoration Continues – Services Resume!

Our church office is up and running again and we’ve resumed weekly services in the Sanctuary. Sheetrock still needs to be replaced in several of the rooms off the main hallway and baseboard needs to be replaced. Most likely, the last of the renovation work will involve installing new cabinets in the kitchen and putting the sink back in place. On another positive note, we’re talking with the plumber about moving the supply pipe that caused these issues to a warmer location, most likely about two feet in from the edge of the roof so as to provide much better insulation of the pipe and avoid freezing in the future. We’re grateful that this disruption was relatively brief, and we’re grateful to those in our congregation who stepped in to help during Christmas to dry out the church.

What should I expect?

Our worship services follow formats outlined in the Book of Common Prayer.  The Holy Eucharist includes the celebration of Holy Communion.  Rite I (8:00am) is more traditional, uses older language (thee, thine, etc.) and seldom uses music.  Rite II (10:30am) uses more contemporary language (you, your, etc.) and usually is accompanied by hymns and other music from our Music Ministry.

Our Mission & Vision

At St. Gabriel’s, our vision and mission is Celebrate and Share the Love of God with EVERYONE … and that includes YOU!

Many people today won’t come through the doors of a church for fear of being judged or criticized.  But that’s not the job of the church!  There are no perfect people at St. Gabriel’s.  If we had to be perfect to come here, the church would be empty week after week.  Instead, God created each of us in His image and He wants to have a relationship with us.  God, and God alone, is the One who can reform us and refine us and He does that while in relationship with Him.  So our role is to celebrate His love and share His love with anyone and everyone and, in the process, introduce them to their loving Heavenly Father, God.

Creation . Redemption . Restoration .

Most of us want to figure out who we are, or what our identity is, yet our identity is found in the One who created us: God.  Many of us feel our lives are broken, but our lives can be redeemed … by God.  And some of us suffer from broken relationships with others and with God, yet restoration is possible, too … by God.  Learn about our creative, redemptive and restorative God right here at St.Gabriel’s.
