Mother's Day Sunday

This Sunday, our offerings will go to Wesley Woods Senior Living in Honor of Mother's Day

For nearly 50 years, churches across North Georgia have received the Mother’s Day Offering for Wesley Woods. This generous support funds financial assistance for meals and housing to residents who have the gift of a long life but may have outlived their resources. In addition, the Mother's Day Offering also supports on-site chaplains and an innovative wellness program.

We want to thank you in advance for supporting this United Methodist Ministry.


All women, of all ages and stages, are invited to join us for our night of worship on Thursday, May 9th at 7pm.

This is a time to connect, worship, and pray with other women as we come together, anchored in Him. Invite a sister, friend or neighbor to join you! 


Your child's Confirmation year has the potential to be one of the most significant events in his or her life - and in the life of your family. We want to invite families of rising 6th grade and up, to come hear about what the upcoming Confirmation class has to offer (actual class will begin in August). This information meeting will be during the Discipleship Hour (10am) on Sunday, June 2nd in C212.


This summer, we are offering something new for all ages and stages! The Discipleship Ministries, children (kindergarten to 5th grade), youth, and adults, are partnering together to host a summer intergenerational series for our Sunday morning discipleship hour based on how to read the Bible.

On Sundays, June 2 - August 4 from 10:15-10:50am, in the Fellowship Hall, we will join together to learn about the larger story within the Bible and how to read it well. After a short teaching, we will break out into age specific discussion groups. 

Nursery will be provided for children 8 weeks to PreK.

We look forward to a summer of connecting with God and one another!


The Smyrna First United Women in Faith will host an Ice Cream Social and Thrift Store Fashion Show on June 4th, 7pm, Fellowship Hall.

Indulge in delicious ice-cream treats with a variety of delectable flavors and witness the latest trends in thrift store fashion. Cheer for your favorite models, as they strut their fashion.

Contact Eve DeVane: or Allyson Sims: for more information.


This year, God's Light Youth Choir will be taking a mystery tour. They will put their trust in God (and Kim) and not anticipate but participate in this memory making experience where they will spread the word of God through song. They will also have opportunities to do missions and have some time to play and get to know each other and grow in their faith.

Please join us in welcoming them home on Sunday, June 9th. Covered Dish dinner at 4pm (bring a dish to share with others) and then the worship service will begin at 5:30pm.


For a number of years, we provided a meal once a month at Trinity Table, Trinity UMC in downtown Atlanta. During Covid the meals were discontinued, then resumed as take out only, and now have resumed as a sit-down meal. Trinity Table serves a meal for the homeless that feeds 175-200 people who live on the streets of Atlanta. Most of these people are chronically homeless and will include some women and children. We need 20-25 volunteers to adequately prepare, transport and serve the meal. This is a great opportunity to do some serious hands-on work serving “the least of the least”. Prep work could take place in our kitchen and then, heating, plating etc. would take place at Trinity. The meal could be whatever your group might like to prepare that will feed 175-200 people, but please, no hot dogs, as many of the people do not eat pork. We would leave the church 11:00-11:30am and be home around 2:30-3:00pm. Below is some updated info about the meal. If you or your group might be interested let me know and we can give you more information. Two or three groups could work together as well. Alan will travel and assist with any group that would like to prepare this meal. Read More
