Last Supper at the Biblical History Center – April 6th

The Cornerstone Class invites Rome First members to join them on a trip to the Biblical History Center in LaGrange on Saturday, April 6th. We will be there from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and have a guided Passover meal at 11:30 a.m. We have reservations for 25. Cost is $40 per person plus tax. This includes seeing artifacts from the Israeli Museum (some dating to the time of Abraham), the Passover meal, and time in their Biblical Garden (full of reproductions giving a sense of Biblical life.) A guide will lead each activity. Note - we'll be going a week before Holy Week and this trip is a wonderful way to prepare for Easter.  We will leave from the church at 8 a.m. and expect to be back by 5 p.m.  Transportation plans are being finalized but you should be able to ride with the class if you would like.  Email to reserve your spot.

March's Communion offering benefits 
The Boys & Girls Club of Rome Floyd County

Every day after school more than 400 kids in NW GA arrive at a Boys and Girls Club. Boys and Girls Club provides a safe haven where kids are accepted for who they are, encouraged to do their best, and leave knowing they are valued and understood. Boys and Girls Club offers a place to learn and grow, ongoing relationships with caring, adult professionals, hope and opportunity for all children and youth. This month's communion offering goes to support the important work of Boys and Girls Club.
