FAITH DAY AT THE ROCKIES
Faith Day at the Rockies is Sunday, July 29 at 1:10 PM vs. the Oakland Athletics, with Rockies players speaking after the game. The post-game concert features Passion. Tickets for this event are $17 each and will be available in the lobby this weekend.
PRE-SERVICE PRAYER TIME
Twenty minutes prior to each service, we will meet for a prayer time with our worship team, audio/visual team and Pastor Jeff in the front of the Celebration Center.

We seek God’s will in all matters surrounding our services and those that attend, and we welcome all who wish to participate.

GET OUT: CHURCHWIDE SERVICE PROJECT
We’re getting our hands dirty in our community at Evergreen Lake, downtown Evergreen and Marshdale on August 4. We’ll spend a half-day serving through projects to clean up our beautiful public areas. We are praying for those that serve and those that will be served. We’d love to see our church body dedicate some time to this project. Keep an eye out for sign-ups in the lobby, coming soon!
