5th Sunday combined worship celebration on October 29 at 11:00 AM

Our 5th Sunday fellowship meal will be pot-luck with the Wednesday night dinner crew providing meat and the congregation bringing sides to share. Yum!

Administrative Counsel will vote on charge conference reports during the meeting that follows lunch.  There will be a finance update, a building committee update, and a REACH update.


Sunday, November 5 is a special Sunday in the life of our congregation. Our third graders will receive Bibles and we will honor the Memory of the Saints of the church. 

We are receiving names from our congregation and community of loved ones who have passed from this life into the next through the past year. We will light a candle in each one's memory and ring a bell as names are read to pause, reflect, and honor their lives and service.

We are receiving names of those you want to honor through Wednesday, November 1. Please call the church office or email .




Calling all 3rd Graders!

Do you know a third grader who needs a Bible; your child, your grandchild, your neighbor?

Sunday, November 5th ECUMC will honor the third graders we love with a precious gift, a new Bible.

It is tradition at East Cobb UMC to present Bibles to our third grade students as gifts from the congregation. Our hope is that this gift will be the starting point for a deeper relationship with God through Christ, enhanced through the study of God’s word.

This year the children will receive a Common English Bible (CEB) Deep Blue Kids Bible.  This engaging, interactive Bible offers colorful illustrations throughout with a wealth of notes, devotionals, Bible trivia and other interactive elements to capture inquisitive, young minds.  The everyday language makes it easier for children to read and apply to their own lives, and the commentary is absolutely amazing. 

Bibles will be presented on Sunday, November 5 during 9:30  service. 

Please contact Nanci Hicks via email ( ) or call the church office to let us know if your child, your grandchild, or a special child in your life from near or far, will be present to receive a Bible this year. Please let us know by noon October 26 so we can order a Bible and have names in the bulletin.



Veterans Day Celebration

East Cobb UMC will celebrate the service of veterans and first responders Sunday, November 12 during the 11:00 worship service. Are you a veteran, someone currently serving in the military, or a first responder we need to honor? Please contact Jim Perry at for more information and to let us know you will be here for the worship service.
