The Regional Council of Churches of Atlanta, the  ecumenical Christian organization for greater Atlanta, welcomes churches, faith-based and secular nonprofit organizations, individuals, businesses, and others to join us for fellowship, to network with one another, and to explore ideas and issues of importance to the community. We work together to promote the common good, magnify the work and witness of the church, and help establish the kingdom of God throughout our region, nation, and all of creation.

Show Up for Shabbat

On October 25-26 #ShowUpforShabbat. Following the murder of 11 innocent Jews at prayer at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life Synagogue last October, millions of people of all faiths rallied around AJC’s #ShowUpForShabbat initiative, packing synagogues in what became the largest-ever expression of solidarity with the American Jewish community.

On the one-year anniversary, AJC is again calling on all people of good conscience to #ShowUpForShabbat. Invite your friends and family from all faith backgrounds to come together to honor the victims and raise our collective voice for a world free of antisemitism, hate, and bigotry.

St. Mary's Sewanee comes to you! Maybe you cannot get to away to a retreat this summer. Perhaps you want just a nugget of inspiration or a daily dose of positivity. They’ve got it for you. Email kylene.mcdonald@stmaryssewanee.org for First Light, a Monday-through-Friday email that is the briefest of morning inspirational messages. One beautiful photograph; one thought (usually only a sentence or two) that will help you start the day with a calm, uplifting message.
