Trick-or-tailgate

Coming up, our cities will hand each of us a great opportunity to be on mission: Halloween. Two years ago Evergreen Church started a new tradition on Halloween called trick-or-tailgate. Evergreen Church Covenant Partners hosted tailgates in their driveway for trick or treaters. The opportunity allows us to get to know our neighbors and continue to be on mission in our community. This year we have three host homes: Al and Gayle Gardner, Dale and Jill Turnier, and Margaret and David Bowers. Please feel free to stop by their tailgate to show your support. If you would like to host your own tailgate, here are some fun ideas:

  • Set up lawn chairs and invite neighbors to have a seat
  • Set up a spooktacular mini haunted house 
  • Set up a fun activity like a treasure hunt, or game where a winner gets a prize 
  • Provide snacks-apple cider, hot cocoa bar, hot dogs, pizza, boiled peanuts, bottles of water, etc. 

If you have questions, please contact Corinne Roberts (Corinne@EvergreenChurchGA.org or Sarah Thompson (Sarah@EvergreenChurchGA.org).

Celebration of life service for Bob Carelock

A life so beautifully lived deserves to be beautifully remembered. Please join us as we celebrate the life of Bob Carelock at 2 pm on Tuesday, October 9 
at Evergreen Church.
 

Covenant Partner Bob Carelock passed away peacefully last Thursday in his home surrounded by his wife of 51 years, Elaine Carelock, and his family.

Bob had a sweet soul and lived his life with a servant heart. He proudly served four years in the U.S. Air Force and always participated in his church home serving in the capacities of deacon, elder, usher, communion server and Sunday school class leader at Evergreen Church. He was also active in the Kiwanis Club of Peachtree City, where he most enjoyed greeting folks at the annual pancake breakfast fundraiser for youth programs. 

When Bob was not volunteering he could be found spending time with his wonderful wife and his grandchildren that he adored. Bob also enjoyed gardening, visiting parks and looking for adventure. Bob’s greatest passion was putting miles on his golf cart as he enjoyed all things golf. 

 
In lieu of flowers, the family lovingly requests donations in Bob’s memory to Southwest Christian Care Hospice, 7225 Lester Rd., Union City, Ga. 30291 or to Evergreen Church, 400 Windgate Rd., Peachtree City, Ga. 302
 
The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18
