Praise God from whom all blessings flow.  I want to be the first to wish you a Merry Christmas. This year I have been gifted with an amazing gift. The regional board has gifted me with ten weeks of dissertation leave starting Dec 1st- Feb 14, 2018. I am so excited to be able to focus on my work to get it done.

Jim Brooks will serve during Rev. Denise’s absence. He will provide leadership and support to the Regional Board, Regional elders, and commission chairs. If you have a need, you may connect with a regional elder, at, or contact

I want to share about our regional work together on mission and vision. Last summer and this fall in total 388 Georgia disciples met in a series of clusters all over the state and captured God’s mission and vision for our church.   The mission of the Christian Church in Georgia is to equip clergy, lay leaders and congregations to LIFT—love everybody, inspire all generations, focus on Christ and transform communities. Our vision is to be a beloved community od diverse disciples making a difference locally and globally for Christ. We have eight values- Mission, Justice, Diversity, Stewardship Transparency, Covenantal relationships, Collaboration, and Spirituality.

Our Christmas offering this year is to launch our mission to LIFT in 2018. We have already planned a series of workshops and gatherings to equip our church with Love, Inspire, Focus on Christ and Transform. We need your help. The Christmas offering is taken up during December, 100 percent of our gifts go toward Georgia’s regional programming. We are so thankful for our partnership and thank you in advance for your support.

Ginger Nelms, our Administrative Office Assistant, is scheduled to have surgery on Dec 12, 2018, and will be out of the office until January 2, 2018.  Her address for cards is 1280 Sylvian Drive Macon, GA 31206.
