This past Sunday was an exciting day for the fathers at Powder Springs COG. A brief look back at "Famous TV Fathers" of the past, revealed that some of the members watched a little more television than they wanted to admit. At the end of the service, a drawing was held for four $30.00 VIP TEXAS Roadhouse gift certificates from the Hiram location. The fathers that won were so excited about their "manly" gift; it sure beat the notorious necktie. After all, the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. Can't wait to see what the July 4th service has in store. Join us.
"Donuts with Dad" was hosted by the girls clubs of Powder Springs Church of God for all the fathers in the community. All were invited Sunday, February 20th at 10am for donuts, juice, milk and coffee. It was a time set aside to promote bonding between a dad and his children. The fellowship hall was decorated with straw hats that had cards for the children to draw out and have their dad read a question and answer about them. Example:"Dad,what did you think the first time you saw me?" and "Dad, what is my favorite color?" This way dad and children had a little time to get to know each other a lot better. At PSCOG, we stand for family values and parents being parents and on this occasion, dad's being dads. Thanks to all the dads that came out. "Anyone can be a dad out of chance, but a man is a dad because he chooses to be one." We salute you dads.
Sunday- June 13th was the full retirement service for Pastor Carson and Sue Brown. They had been the pastor for 33 faithful years. The church was able to share their appreciation for them through a special service held by the new Pastor Jeff and Kelly Vaughn. On June 27th the state officials will come out and officially retire pastor Carson and Sue Brown and set forth Pastor Jeff and Kelly Vaughn. Pastor Carson and Sue will be moving to Wedowee, Alabama for their retirement years and look forward to spending time on the farm and at the lake. The new pastor, Jeff and Kelly Vaughn are excited about what God can do with the Powder Springs Church of God with the help from good members and a great community. They have been filling in for Pastor Carson and Sue for approximately a year, due to health complications of Pastor Carson. But, now that they are the pastors in charge they are ready to march forward to rebuilding and growing the church. They have always been involved in children and youth ministries and both are on the boys and girls clubs boards for the Church of God in North Georgia. They are actively involved with all missions, including world, community, and states. Jeff and Kelly love to help others and enjoy being with people of all ages. They look forward to getting to know the people of the community and want to be actively involved with the schools and businesses. Kelly graduated from McEachern High School and was raised in the community and is glad to be back at home. We at Powder Springs Church of God are rooting for our new pastor. May God truly bless your efforts.
