We celebrate our 2021 High School Graduates and look forward to honoring them in both services on Sunday, May 16! If you've not had a chance to see their pictures on our "Grad Wall" in the hallway leading to the worship center, please take a look this Sunday. Congratulations to all of them and their families!
Goodbye to Monica Worstell!
"Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God."
Philippians 1:3 (NLT)
As much as we don't want to, we are having to say goodbye to our much-loved secretary, Monica Worstell, who has been with us since September 1, 2019. In that short time, she has endeared herself to all of us and become a treasured part of our staff team. Monica has helped us through the most unusual year in any church's history and graced us with her many gifts in countless ways. We cannot begin to quantify what a blessing she has been to us. Monica will be moving in June to Fort Jackson, South Carolina, with her husband, Matt, and their three children. We wish her every blessing and are grateful for the gift she has been to us. Every time we think of Monica, we will give thanks to God for her, as she has been our faithful co-laborer in the Gospel.
Welcome to Olivia Kelly!
Pierce Chapel's New Church Secretary
As we say goodbye to Monica, we are delighted to welcome our newest staff member, Olivia Kelly! Olivia grew up in the UMC in her home state of Tennessee and will graduate on May 22 from Oglethorpe University with a B.A. in Political Science. If that's not impressive enough, once a month, she travels back to Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Marietta to serve as a Senior Airman in the United States Air Force Reserve. We are so grateful that God has led her to us at Pierce Chapel, and we look forward to all the gifts she will bring to our staff team. She has been training this week with Monica, and this Monday, May 17, she will be "on her own" for the first time! We know you'll be gracious to her as she continues to learn the ropes. So...if you need any info about Pierce Chapel (or even guidance about how to service your military aircraft), contact Olivia at the church office!

All Aboard! VBS is one month away and we are still searching for volunteers to help in lots of different ways!
In lieu of the VBS Supply Wall, we are asking for monetary donations to help cover extra costs of VBS such as cleaning supplies and decorating materials. Would you consider donating one of the following amounts?
You can drop an offering through the church office mail slot, put it in the offering box on Sunday, or give electronically via piercechapel.com/give. Thank you, Pierce Chapel, for always supporting this awesome ministry for kids!
Because of Pierce Chapel's participation in the Covenant Congregation Program (CCP) at the Pastoral Institute, couples who are part of the Pierce Chapel family can attend this marriage retreat FREE OF CHARGE! (That's a least a $149 value!) Contact Lynn at email@example.com for more info about how to sign up using our CCP benefits.
