Women’s retreat 2019
Faith’s Women’s Retreat will be at Rock Eagle 4-H Center in Eatonton, GA on January 25-27, 2019, featuring speaker Blaire Smith and focusing on the theme of Contentment.
We are so excited to offer this time of rest, refreshment, spiritual growth, and fellowship for the women of Faith Presbyterian. The heart of the Women’s Retreat finds its truest expression in the simple act of being together. Away from the busyness at home, surrounded by God’s beautiful creation, we are free to intentionally reconnect with one another and with God in deeper and life-transforming ways.
This weekend away for women of all ages promises to be spiritually rich with an engaging speaker, relevant breakout sessions, and ample opportunities to experience community with one another and enjoy a variety of activities and amenities.

ACTS (Area Churches Together Serving) Workday
ACTS (Area Churches Together Serving) is a collaborative ministry of Oconee County churches working together to provide material and emotional support for those people with emergency needs in our community. ACTS serves individuals referred by participating churches and agencies such as Department of Human Services and ACTION.
The ACTS Distribution Center, located at 130 East Thompson Street in Bogart, is open on Tuesday and Friday between 9:00 AM and 1:00 PM. When an individual in need arrives at ACTS, they are greeted by a friendly volunteer and asked to complete some simple paperwork. Additional volunteers load a grocery cart full of perishable and non-perishable food items. While the person waits, they can peruse the clothes closet for clothes, shoes, household items, toys, and more at no cost.
Faith Presbyterian specifically collects peanut butter and powdered milk for ACTS, but any donations are accepted and appreciated. Moreover, a group of volunteers from Faith volunteer at ACTS on the third Tuesday of every other month from 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM. Join us at 130 E. Thompson Street, Bogart, GA 30622 or contact Sean Hessenthaler at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
