Easter at CityPoint is always a special day and this year is no exception!  We will have a petting zoo for all of the kids and lots of fun giveways in our City Kids Church during all services.  Pick up invite cards this Sunday and invite your friends and family to join us.

April Series

Tough As Nails
Uncertainty is unavoidable, being fearful is optional. Let’s opt for something better. When fear starts talking, let’s stop listening. We follow a leader that was tougher than nails. We began a new three-week series last Sunday that will prepare us for Easter.

City Point adopted Prestige Circle last year and we have another clean-up day scheduled this month on Earth Day. Bring the whole family and help us, “Keep Texas Beautiful!”

Connection Point – Starting in April  

Connection Point is a 4-week course where we share the vision and purpose of our church. You will learn more about City Point and our vision as well as a focus on how to grow in your relationship with God. We also look at discovering our purpose & gifting’s and we show you practical steps to utilize your gifts to build the Kingdom of God and find true purpose. It takes place during the 11:45 AM service. Connection Point starts on April 2nd with Class 101. If you have questions, please email us at info@citypointchurch.com.

Community Groups

We have four more weeks of groups this semester and it’s never too late to find your group! Community Groups are a great way to meet people from church and make lasting relationships. Find the group that’s just right for you at citypointchurch,com/groups 

Preschool Corner

I wonder about the untold parts of the Easter story. What happened to the little donkey Jesus rode on Palm Sunday? Who went first to have his feet washed by Jesus? And what was an early-morning, beach fish-fry like with resurrected Jesus? I might have thought campfire….Bacon!

This month, in our 3’s and 4’s-Kinder classes, your children will walk through the journey to Easter from Palm Sunday to Jesus’ Ascension. The kiddos won’t wanna miss our Easter Sunday services on April 16th. They won’t go home egg-less!

The Littlest Peeps (ages 0-2 yrs) will have an engaging lesson this month on how God gives us a family with the story of Baby Moses. Easter Sunday will be a great one with a fun craft and a little take-home treat!

Preschool’s Where It’s At…
We’re not babysitting. We’re not just filling a need. We’re literally training up the next generation for Jesus. These little ones are our future leaders. Come and be a part of this invigorating ministry of teaching kiddos about Jesus. If you’ve been on the fence…jump in. You’ll be glad you did!

City Kids 
Having fun and meeting Jesus; that’s what’s happing in City Kids! Our recent “Lego Sunday” was a hit and to top it off, we had several kids invite Jesus to be their Lord and Savior. Many thanks to those who invested time and resources to make it happen.

As for our Gospel Project journey, we have made it through the Old Testament and have starting learning about Jesus, God’s sacrificial lamb for the sins of the world. We will be covering the topic of Water Baptism soon. So be talking with your kids to see if they have any interest. Let us know about it and please don’t hesitate to ask us if you have any questions related to water baptism. It’s should be a complicated or scary thing, but rather a celebration in the life of every believer.

In Club 56 our preteens are getting into what Jesus was doing at 12 years of age. The Bible doesn’t show a lot about Jesus’ childhood. However, being 12 had no lesser meaning to Jesus regarding the reason he came. At that young age, he was already engaged in his Father’s plan. He amazed the Temple leaders with his understanding and knowledge of the scriptures. Pray that out preteens become inspired to “live the seven”, “I must be about my Father’s business.”

 

City Kids might just be your thing. Have you taken the time to find out? We worship, we pray, we learn the bible, and kids get saved and discipled.  Come and join us. It’s a great way to get connected at City Point and make a huge impact for Christ. castile@citypointchurch.com
