As you are aware, our class has adopted a local FBC Family for Christmas. The family consists of parents and two daughters, 10 and 6 1/2 years old.

The signs below contain the initial Wish List from each family member. Some of these items have already been provided by class members. If you would like to provide an item on any of the Wish Lists, please let Bobbi know ASAP. She can let you know what is available.

Please wrap your gift(s) and bring them to the class Christmas party on the 13th or to SS class on the 14th.

If you'd rather not shop yourself, please bring a monetary gift and give to Bobbi in SS Class this coming Sunday and she will shop for you.

If you have any questions at all, please contact Bobbi directly at 678-640-3387 or bobbieaton57@gmail.com.

Thanks again for your loving support of this family,

Bobbi Eaton

Just in case you've not noticed, our Sunday School room is in dire need of a good painting. The church will supply everything needed to make it look shiny and new again except the manpower to do the painting - that's where our class comes in.

We need to come up with as many DIY Painters as we can for either the 9th of December or another evening that week.

If you can assist with this task, please raise your brush and let it be known.

This needs to be finalized this coming Sunday morning in class.
