If you are visiting, we want to extend a special welcome to you and invite you to an informal reception immediately following our worship service. On Saturday, Pastor Jeff will be available in the Celebration Center, and on Sunday, he and his wife, Mary, will meet you at the Welcome Center.
If you are attending the Saturday evening service, we would like to invite you back for our Ministry Kickoff tomorrow morning at 9:00 AM. We hope this hour will help you connect with the volunteer areas that may be a good fit for you. We will begin in the Celebration Center, then transition to two breakout sessions for your top areas of interest.
For those attending Sunday services, if you were not able to attend this gathering and would like more information on ministry teams, please contact the church office, and we will put you in touch with the appropriate team lead. Thank you to our leaders who invested their time in these sessions!
We continue to see significant interest in following Christ into the waters of baptism. Our next baptism service will be during the weekend of July 11-12. If you are interested, the first step is to secure an interview with one of our pastors or church leaders. We will finalize our list of participants on July 5.
MAIN OFFICE SUMMER HOURS
Our main office will be moving to summer hours effective immediately and continuing through mid-August. The summer hours will be 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM daily. If you call or email the office after 2:00 PM, please note that your request will be handled the next business day.
BABY BOTTLES CAN HELP “CHANGE” OUR COMMUNITY
You can still bring your baby bottles to the church, filled with change, to help support one of our ministry partners, Mountain Area Pregnancy Center. We will be returning these filled bottles to MAPC in the next couple of weeks.
JULY 4 OUTDOOR SERVICE AND PICNIC
We’re taking our regular Saturday evening service outdoors for the holiday. Join us at 5:00 PM for a picnic, provided by the outreach team. Stay for service at 6:00 PM, and then enjoy some ice cream before heading off to fireworks with your family. Bring a neighbor!
Welcome back to our CIY DV8 Students! Be sure to make plans to attend DV8 Share Night on July 2 from 6:00 – 8:00 PM to hear testimonies from their time at CIY. Don’t miss out on hearing some life-changing stories! All are welcome.
July in The Gathering will see Dr. Jeffery Clark taking us through an enlightening look at the Kingdom of God through the teachings of Jesus. Historically, Christians have viewed the Kingdom of God in many varied and diverse ways – but the real question is “How and what did Jesus teach us on this very important topic?” Please join us in the Fellowship Hall at 9:00 AM on Sunday mornings.
