Here are some things to be aware of this week:
Service Time Change: Our service time is changing to 4pm Sunday nights starting Sunday, January 4, 2015. We believe this will make it easier on families and it should give you an opportunity to go out to dinner with others after the service.
Prayer Time Change: To adjust for the service time change, our prayer time will move to 3:00pm on Sundays. We take thirty minutes to pray for the needs of our congregation, our service and House Fellowships, our community, and anything else that comes up. Please consider joining us for prayer.
Christmas Eve Service: We will be joining Risen Life Church & Gateway Community Church in a joint Christmas Eve Candlelight Service at 6:00pm on December 24th. Please let Benjamin know you're coming so he can save you a seat! In addition, please plan to be there early as the seats go fast. The service runs slightly less than an hour.
Children’s Ministry Change: Starting January 4th, we will only be able to offer children’s ministry during our Sunday Gathering for toddlers (walking) through pre-school. All other children will worship with the adults. We'll dismiss the kids from our service but they need to be checked in order to be released.
As we grow, we seek to offer much more ministry for our children, but this requires faithful servants to help us on the rotation. If you feel you could serve in this way, please contact Kelly about getting on our rotation.
Children's Huddle: Because we believe part of our ministry is to reach out and serve families, we want to train up and equip kids and their parents to love Jesus. Therefore, Pastor Bryan will host a huddle for kids (of any age) and their parents (or those hope to learn what it is to be a parent) at 3:30 on Sundays. The Huddle will be a 15-minute devotional conversation centered around the topic he'll be preaching from during the service. We believe this will not only help our children learn more about Jesus and be better suited to learn and grow during the sermon, but it will also help our parents developed a skill for discussing Scripture (specifically the same Scripture that's preached) with their children. Please consider join Pastor Bryan in the Huddle.
See you Sunday night!
