If God were a shape, I bet God would be round. Like a squiggly chalk circle drawn by a small child. Or, maybe even a big lavender-colored bubble. Round and whole, without end, always expanding. Gaining ground. Consuming everything that is loveless. Reversing the consequences of lovelessness. Defeating arrogance with gentleness. Hard to see God doing all that from our vantage point. Hard to always believe that God can round off all the jagged things we do and have become. But that’s what God pledged. “I will accomplish it,” is what God said. Full circle. Ezekiel 17:22-24

Farmers Market – Monroe
St. Alban’s is hosting the Walton Wellness Mobile Farmacy on Wednesday evenings through mid-July. Fresh vegetables and fruit will be distributed in our parking lot to around 100 people in need who have registered to receive this free produce. The goal of the ministry is to improve the diet, health and quality of life for the less fortunate in Walton County. Our Outreach Committee will be assisting Walton Wellness and F.I.S.H. with this complementary farmers market.
Volunteers from St. Alban’s are needed to assist with this ministry on Wednesday evenings from April 25th through July 11th. The market begins at 6 p.m. (with volunteers needed at 5:30 to set up) and is normally completed by 7 p.m. If you are able to participate, please sign up on the sheets available on the round table in the Narthex or contact Nicole Richards or Marvin Gray. For more detail information regarding this 8 year old ministry, please contact DeDe Harris, Walton Wellness Director, at 770-313-8107.
Help nourish our youngest neighbors by supporting the FISH4KIDS program.
More than 375 volunteers come together each summer to prepare 2,425 sack lunches each day, Monday-Friday. The lunches are then delivered door-to-door throughout Walton County. Each lunch is bag full of hope!
FISH4KIDS also serves 1,525 students during the school year through the Backpack Buddies program. These children receive food on Fridays in their backpacks to feed them through the weekend.
Text FISH4KIDS to 41444 to sponsor a child or make a donation. This gift can be made in honor of a special person like your favorite teacher, parent or pastor or designated as a memorial gift – All on your phone in just a few seconds.
Marvin Gray will once again drive the church van to Social Circle every Tuesday and Thursday this summer to deliver the sack lunches for distribution. If you would like to volunteer to help, volunteer information for all aspects of FISH can be found at fishofwalton.com.
