It’s Friday…But Sunday’s Comin’!

Happy Friday everyone!

Our church picnic is THIS Sunday, August 2nd at Ronald Reagan Sports Park, immediately after the worship service. Bring your own lunch and plan to spend part of the afternoon getting to know one another. Make a special effort to find someone you do not already know! This would also be a great opportunity for you to invite someone to church and lunch afterward.

Thank you for praying this week for Josh Gunnerson and Greg Hammond. As we get any news on their recovery, we will pass it along. Gary and Susan Gunnerson are grateful for your prayers. Stephanie Hammond is also grateful for your prayers. We’ll have an opportunity to provide some meals to the Hammonds as soon as Greg is released from the hospital.

I also received word today that Tiffany Gaines’ father died in his sleep last night. Please keep Steve and Tiffany and their family, especially Tiffany’s mom, in prayer during these difficult days.

Here are several other prayer requests for people in and around our church:

-Please pray for those in our church who do not have work or do not have enough work to make ends meet for their families. This is a difficult situation that several of you have been in or continue to be in. As days and weeks without a job or a job that can pay your bills turn into months and years, a certain kind of despair sets in. Please pray that those who are in this situation will trust God to provide for them even while they search for work.

-Please pray that our church would make wise decisions for the future. As our congregation grows, our needs multiply and our opportunities for ministry in our community increase. Please pray that the session would know how best to lead and guide the church. Pray, too, that God would give you opportunities to share the good news of Christ’s work on the cross in both word and deed.

-Please pray for people in our church who are struggling against sin…that’s pretty much all of us! Pray that we would fight the good fight, that we would walk in obedience to the Lord, that we would serve God and neighbor before serving ourselves. Pray that we would believe the Resurrection truth about ourselves and that we would act in accordance with that belief.

Have a great weekend! I look forward to worshipping with you on Sunday.

In Christ,
Eric Landry

There are only TWO more weeks in our summer communicants class. The kids have worked up through chapter 11. There are only five more chapters to go. Parents, if your child will finish the book and you think he or she is ready to make public profession of faith, please contact your elder to set-up a time to discuss it with you.

Our church picnic is NEXT Sunday, August 2nd at Ronald Reagan Sports Park, immediately after the worship service. Bring your own lunch and plan to spend part of the afternoon getting to know one another. Make a special effort to find someone you do not already know! This would also be a great opportunity for you to invite someone to church and lunch afterward.

It’s Friday, but Sunday’s Comin’!

Happy Friday everyone!

Pastor Robert and I are looking forward to spending some time with those of you who have recently begun attending the church. Our two-week long Discovery Class begins this Sunday. We’ll meet immediately after the worship service for lunch and discussion. If you’re a “regular” at Christ Presbyterian, please pray for the new folks who will be coming to the lunch and make an effort this Sunday to seek out someone you do not know: invite them over, get to know them, ask how you can pray for them!

There are only three more weeks in our summer communicants class. The kids have worked up through chapter 8; there was no homework this week. Parents, if your child is expressing an interest in making a public profession of faith, it is important that they complete the workbook before they meet with your elder to discuss the next steps. Please pray for all of our kids, especially those who are older and have not made a profession of faith. Pray that they would heed Christ’s claim of kingship on their lives.

Our next all church baby shower will on Saturday, July 25th at 10:00 am at the Jenson home. This shower will be a potluck brunch. A sign-up sheet is on the back table along with invitations. Shower and gift donations will also be collected. Please see Zsuzsi Khoury, Teresa Misiti, or Angela Jenson with any donations.

Have a great weekend! I look forward to worshipping with you on Sunday.

Happy Friday everyone!

If you are new to Christ Presbyterian Church, we would love to have you join us on July 19 and 26 for our two-week Discovery Class. The class will meet at the Landrys immediately after the worship service for lunch and discussion. This is a great opportunity to get to know the pastors of our church, the distinctives of our church, and other new folks who are calling Christ Presbyterian “home.” Please put your name on the sign-up sheet on the bulletin table so we know how much food to have available.

Our communicants class continues this week at 10am at the Landrys. If your child is planning on attending, please be sure to send him or her with a Bible, a pencil, and a snack! The class will begin at 10 am and conclude by noon. Parents who want to help with “crowd control” are welcome to stay!

We’re continuing to collect shoes for International Christian Adoptions. All children’s sizes are needed. It looks like we might even hit our goal this Sunday! If you have any questions, please contact Mike DeWit.

Our next all church baby shower will on Saturday, July 25th at 10:00 am at the Jenson home. This shower will be a potluck brunch. A sign-up sheet is on the back table along with invitations. Shower and gift donations will also be collected. Please see Zsuzsi Khoury, Teresa Misiti, or Angela Jenson with any donations.

Have a great weekend!

God in Christ has done everything He requires to reconcile sinners to Himself.
