Service:

  • Life Chain:  Sunday, 10/1, 2:30pm-3:30pm, downtown Snellville (Hwy 78/Main St at Oak Road/Henry Clower Blvd)  LIFE CHAIN is a peaceful and prayerful public witness of pro-life Americans standing for one hour praying for our nation and for an end to abortion. It is a visual statement of solidarity by the Christian community that abortion kills children and that the Church supports the sanctity of human life~ from the moment of conception to natural death.
  • Rowdy Roots:  Friday, 10/20, 6pm-9pm  Our 3rd-5th grade youth group!  Sign up on the “How Can I Serve Board” in the LT room.
  • Night Shelter:  Saturday, 11/4,  4:45pm-9:30pm  Permission slip required!  Sign up in the Life Teen room.
  • Donut Fellowship:  Most Sunday mornings, our parish offers a Donut & Coffee Fellowship for our families.  We are in need of families to help staff the donut fellowship.  This is a great way to serve our parish and is also a FIAT opportunity.  If you are interested, please email Lynda VanHassel at lyndavan1@gmail.com.

Fundraiser:

  • Our annual Christmas Wreath fundraiser began on Sunday, 9/24/17.  Teens can pre-sell the beautiful wreaths to their friends, family and neighbors.  This is a great way for a teen to earn $8 in their teen account to use for retreats, Sonfest and other Life Teen events.  Fundraising packets are available in the Life Teen office.  Wreaths are $24 and will be delivered the first week of December.  This fundraiser ends on 10/25/17.

Remember the Life Teen closet is always in need of soda!!!
