Wednesday Night Suppers
Supper time is from 5-6:30 pm in the Activities Center. This year, we are using a catering service so reservations are required. You may register one of two ways:
Reservations should be made by 4:30 pm on the Monday before the supper by contacting Sarah Cann in the church office at 678-325-4025 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Because our meals are being catered, persons who show up without a reservation cannot be guaranteed a meal and will need to wait until reservations are honored to see if food is available. A reservation MUST BE HONORED either by attending, by cancelling by the same Monday deadline or by paying if you do not eat or cancel. We have to pay for all reservations.
Children - age three and under eat FREE
We look forward to having supper with you!
Wednesday Night Supper Drivers Needed
As part of the Family Night Supper program, a cadre of volunteers delivers meals to persons in our community who are homebound. Last year, this dedicated group delivered over 350 meals. We are in need of drivers on Wednesday night to deliver the meals. It only requires a little of your time each week to deliver to one house and put a smile on someone’s face. Also, if you know of a church member or someone in our community that is homebound and would like a meal delivered to their door on Wednesday evenings, contact Linda Brooks at email@example.com. There are no requirements for the free meal; the person(s) can be homebound because of illness, age or other reason. It can be a short term or a long-term situation. We refuse no one.
New Discussion Group
Sunday, November 17 will mark the beginning of a new discussion group at Tucker First. The group will be studying; Christmas is Not Your Birthday by Mike Slaughter. The class will have a facilitator, and the approach will be a deep discussion of the chapters and topics. Please join the discussion at 9:45 am in room 112. Below is a brief description of the book:
Every year, we say we’re going to cut back, simplify, and have a family Christmas that focuses on the real reason for the season—Jesus. But every year, advertisements beckon, the children plead, and it seems easier just to indulge our wants and whims. Overspending, overeating, materialism, and busyness rob us of our peace and joy and rob Jesus of his rightful role as the center of our celebration.
This Christmas, cut through the hype that leaves you exhausted and broke at the end of the year. Instead, experience the peace of knowing that God is truly with us, the joy of giving sacrificially, and the love of a Savior who gave everything he had for us. In five short, engaging chapters, Pastor Mike Slaughter inspires readers to approach Christmas differently, and be transformed in the process.
Make Tracks to the Jingle Jog

• Elf Run (7 and under) - 50-100 yard run and multiple runs by age and with parents running against kids
After the race, there will be free food from many of Atlanta’s best restaurants, holiday music by the Salvation Army Band, and a visit with Santa. There will also be tons of fun games for the kids. Runners and walkers, strollers and dogs are all welcome. Get your jingle bells polished, don your spiffy Christmas costume, and let’s get jogging!

Children's Sunday School is on the Move!
This year in Children's Sunday School we are using the Cokesbury Curriculum called "Grow, Proclaim, Serve." All children meet in the Preschool Wing as follows:
Service and Mission Opportunities
NET Food Pantry - Please help our neighbors in need. Bring spaghetti noodles and sauce to the box in the reception area in the church office.
NETWorks - NETWorks pantry is VERY low and would appreciate donations of ready-to-eat food items and bottled water.
4th Sunday Trinity Meal - Take a meal and eat with the men at Trinity House the 4th Sunday of each month.
Saturday Snacks - Help provide food for hungry children living at Northlake Inn.
Volunteer to be a Reading Partner at Nesbit Elementary. Provide some extra attention to help a student improve their reading. It only involves you sitting down with a student at the school for thirty minutes a week , but it makes a world of difference in the student's life (and your own)!
Northlake Inn Children's Library - pairs of volunteers are needed to supervise the library on weekdays from 3-5 and Saturdays, 12-2pm. The manager converted a vacant hotel room at this extended-stay hotel into a cozy children’s library full of books, magazines, board games, and a computer.
Christmas at Tucker Needs You!
Christmas at Tucker is Tucker First’s gift to the community. Freely given by the members and community that is Tucker First. God’s greatest Gift, is given to you, and me every day. The gift of Jesus, Emmanuel (God with us) reminds us daily of His love, sacrifice, provision, care, hope, and salvation for everyone. Yes, everyone! We have the wonderful opportunity and privilege of giving/sharing that gift to our community. We have the possibility to impact a life who is sitting in a pew; hurting, searching, longing, for something more to let them know that with God all things are possible!
Won’t you come and be a part of that which is Christmas at Tucker?
