It’s Friday, but Sunday’s Comin’!

Happy Friday, everyone!

This Sunday, our new Mercy Committee will have its “Launch Lunch” at the Jenson home after the worship service. Please bring your own lunch. There will be a time for you to brainstorm ideas for reaching to folks in our community with other people in the congregation, so spend time thinking about ways we can be the hands and feet of Jesus in our community prior to your lunch on Sunday.

Have you signed up for the new Neighborhood Groups that will begin on March 13th? There are five groups, scattered through the region. These groups are intended to provide regular opportunities for you to grow deeper in your relationship with God with other people from our church who live near you. The Bible assumes that we will have deep “one anothering” relationships with people in our churches, but too often we only connect with people who are like us, in the same stage of life, or with whom we have something in common. These neighborhood groups should help broaden our connections in the church, while also giving us an opportunity to reach out to people in our specific areas with the hope of the gospel.

We are continuing to look for a new place to meet since Chaparral High School will be undergoing major repair work through the summer. Our rent will undoubtedly increase. Please think about how you can give generously to the work of the church to support the church with these extra expenses. Please also pray that God would guide us to a new home. If you have any leads or ideas, please speak to one of the elders.

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

In Christ,

Eric Landry

It’s Friday, but Sunday’s Comin’!

Happy Friday, everyone!

This is the last Sunday to RSVP for our Mercy Committee lunch meeting next week. The meeting on Feb 28th is “bring your own lunch,” so please make plans to grab something to eat before you make your way to the Jensons. This launch meeting is an opportunity for you to hear directly from the deacons about their work, about the need for a mercy committee, as well as to hear your ideas for ways we can be the hands and feet of Jesus for people in our church and in our community.

Please visit the sign-up table for our new neighborhood groups that are launching on March 13th! Each region in our area will have a dedicated group, making it possible for you to meet with other folks in your area for fellowship, prayer, and discipleship.

As we mentioned last week, we were informed that Chaparral High School will be undergoing major repair work through the summer and we will need to find a new place to meet. The elders are considering all of our options, and are eager to see how the Lord provides for us during this time. Please pray that God would guide us to a new home. If you have any leads or ideas, please speak to one of the elders.

Finally, we heard some sad news this week that one of our members, Alli Marshall, who moved to Colorado Spring with her daughter Alena, has died. Alli had many different health issues, but it is not yet clear what caused her death. Please pray for Alli’s family as they care for Alena.

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

In Christ,

It’s Friday, but Sunday’s Comin’!

Happy Friday, everyone!

Guys, our men’s study is TOMORROW, Saturday the 6th at 8AM at the Recios. For more information, please contact Pastor Robert.

A few other dates to keep in mind:

  • February 10th: Women’s Study
  • February 13th: Mision Vida Nueva Outreach
  • February 27th: Officer Training
  • February 28th: Mercy Committee Informational Lunch

Thank you for your generous giving last Sunday. The deacons will be sending a letter to the church soon to identify our giving goals for the year. Please pray for our church, that we would be wise stewards of the gifts that you give to us and that God would bless our efforts to extend his kingdom in and through our church to the community around us.

Our Getting Ready Class continues this Sunday. We had more than 20 kids at last week’s class. If you would like to help with “crowd control,” please see Mike or Kristen DeWit. We’re excited for the new class and the kids who will learn just a little bit more about our church’s worship through the class.

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

In Christ,

Eric Landry

Spring 2016 Officer Training

Last fall, the church nominated a new deacon. Before he is eligible to be elected, the nominee must undergo additional officer training this spring. Pastor Eric would like to invite any other men in the church who might be interested to sit in on this training. This training does not automatically qualify you for serving as an ordained officer in the church, but it is an necessary step in the process. It’s also an opportunity for those who do not ever envision themselves serving as officers to go a little deeper into our doctrine and beliefs.

You do NOT need to have completed the Leadership Training that normally comes before the Officer Training to participate in the study this spring. If you want to participate in this training with our nominee and Pastor Eric, please email Pastor Eric as soon as possible. Our first meeting will be Saturday, February 27th, at 8:00 a.m. Subsequent meetings will take place on the fourth Saturday morning of every month through June.

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