City Point Turned FOUR on January 29th

 

City Point turned FOUR last month! We had a great time celebrating all God has done over the last 48 months.  If you missed our church birthday party be sure to check out this video and hear some amazing stories from City Point families. 
 


Preschool Corner

Friendship is a beautiful thing. Good friends can enrich your life. Call you out when you’re wrong. And comfort you when you need it. Jesus calls us friends. February seems a perfect month to learn about some true friends in the Bible. Jonathan & David, Ruth & Naomi, and four faithful friends who went to great lengths to help a brother find Jesus. Your preschoolers will learn the value of friendship and how a good friend sticks closer than a brother! 

Our littlest sweeties will also discover God’s love for others through the story of Zacchaeus. We won’t be hanging out in any trees, but we’re definitely gonna color some!

No Valentine’s month is complete without a little party! Bring the kiddos Sunday, February 12th for our annual Valentine’s Parties in class, packed with games, fun crafts and treats! Hope to see you and a friend! 

City Kids


Great things are happening in City Kids. We are expanding with Club 56, a new 5th & 6th grade class starting at the end of February. Our pre-teens will be discovering Jesus’s mission at 12-years-old, “I must be about my father’s business.”

We are also hitting a significant milestone with our Gospel Project. In the next few weeks we will be completing our chronological walk through the Old Testament and begin going through the New Testament. Amazing! Each kid should be collecting their own folder of bible cards to track our progress. If your kids have missing cards, they will have opportunities to restock in the weeks ahead. We will provide instructions through email and when you come to drop off or pick up. We want every kid to have their own full complete set. 

Also, the next Dry Gulch summer camp installment is due by February 26th. If you know of anyone who still would like to go to Dry Gulch summer camp, June 19th thru the 24th, they can submit a deposit and go on a waiting list. There is no guarantee they will get a spot, but if they do not, the deposit will be refunded. Please let us know A.S.A.P.  if you are considering it. The sooner the better.
Finally, joining the City Kids Elementary team is a great way to get connected. Come check us out. We’d love to meet you. castile@citypointchurch.com

Student Community Groups
We are so excited for a new semester of student groups to start back up this month! Our student community groups are a great & fun way to meet new people and learn about God. We have two student groups that both meet on Wednesday nights from 7:00-8:30pm. One group meets in Allen and the other in Rowlett.

January Series

We’ve all had the experience of putting something together only to have to take it apart and start over. That’s ok if it’s only a gas grill, but it’s not okay if it’s your life. 

Your career . . . 
Your marriage . . . 
Your dreams . . . 

How do you break the cycle of mistakes and failed attempts? In this 4-part series, we will look at practical advice to ensure that the next time won’t be like the last time.

2 Great Service on New Years day

 

Do you have New Years Eve plans? We thought you might be staying up a little later than usual on Saturday night so we have decided to cancel our 9:00 am service and only have our 10:15 & 11:45 service for this Sunday only. 

Fasting and Corporate Prayer

We will have corporate prayer meetings during our season of prayer and fasting. The meetings will take place January 8th, 15th, and 22nd from 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm.

City Point Turns 4 on January 29th

 

City Point turns FOUR this month and we plan to celebrate big on Sunday, January 29th. Join us as we give thanks to God for all He has done over the last 48 months.  The fun will be happening during all three services so pick a time and come join the party at 9:00, 10:15, 11:45.  Be sure and invite your friends & family!

Connection Point – Starting in January 

Connection Point is a 4-week course where we share the vision and purpose of our church.

Preschool Corner

Ripe bananas or rotten bananas? Juicy peaches or squishy peaches? Of course, we all want the tasty fruit!
January will be a fruitful month for our 4’s thru kindergarteners as they learn about the Fruits of the Spirit and how we can produce good fruit. Examples of this crisp, deliciousness include the stories of the Widow’s Mite and the Good Samaritan.

Our littlest blueberries will be taking a ride down the Nile learning about Baby Moses and how God kept him safe or discovering all about Jesus growing up. In preschool and nursery, we’re keepin’ it farm to market fresh!

Interested in producing some love, joy, and peace in our preschool ministry? Contact Alicia Ingram at aingram@citypointchurch.com for more information!

City Kids

With the beginning of a new year, there is the hope of a fresh start. In City Kids our Gospel Project journey takes a look at God sustaining his people while in exile and eventually bringing them back to their own land. It was a new beginning. God had always planned to bring them back just like he always planned to send Jesus. As we start this new year, pray that our kids connect with the truth that Jesus not only saves us, but keeps us in his love. God sustained Daniel from hungry lions. He kept his people while in captivity and he made a way for them to return to Jerusalem to rebuild the temple. Make sure your kids bring their Bibles each week.
 

 
Also, Dry Gulch summer camp deposits should already be in. We can still turn in more reservations, but time is of the essence. Reservations are still being accepted. In the next few days, the camp will be full and subsequent applicants will be placed on a waiting list. If your child will be 7 years of age by June 19 and no older than 12, they are eligible to go. Our projected date for camp will be June 19th thru the 24th. The camp is not exclusive to only City Point kids, but others are welcome. If you have neighbors, friends, or relatives that would like to go, please pass on the information to them and let us know about it A.S.A.P.

⛄ December Newsletter ???? City Point Church ❄

December Series

Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year! There are several things that set this season apart. There is music that lifts the soul, decorations that warm the home and a generous spirit that seems to unify everyone. However, Christmas is not celebrated because of what is happening but because of what did happen. Join us for all three Sundays in December and as we let His light shine.

Community Christmas Party- This Sunday!!!

We thought of you and made plans that are guaranteed to get the whole family in the Christmas spirit! We kick off the fun on Sunday, December 4th with a special visit from Santa all morning long and free family photos with the big guy himself. We will also have a Hot Chocolate Bar and an encouraging message about the true Spirit of Christmas.  This event is designed with your friends and co-workers that don’t have a church home in mind. Don’t wait – invite them today!


Family Movie Night

Our Family Christmas Movie Night is back by popular demand – one of our favorite City Point holiday traditions! This year we are offering TWO viewing times – Friday, December 9th at 6:30 pm ( the movie will begin at 7:00) and a matinee on Saturday, December 10th at 1:30 pm ( the movie will begin at 2:00).  You can sign up for your movie time and get a ticket at the link below.  Space is limited so be sure and sign up yourself and your kids and any friends you might want to bring along. Kiddos wear your PJ’s and bring a blanket.  There will be a hot chocolate bar, popcorn, movie candy and a visit from a special train conductor. This event is completely FREE so be sure to invite your friends, family & neighbors!


Candle Light Christmas Eve Services

On December 23rd at 7:00 pm & December 24th at 4:00 pm and 5:30 pm, we will have our Candle Light Christmas Eve services. These services help set the tone for a truly peaceful and joyful Christmas. No matter when you celebrate bring the family and celebrate the season with us!

We will be partnering with Allen Community Outreach by collecting toys for children and teenagers in need. Please bring an unwrapped gift for children and a gift card for teenagers. Our last Sunday to receive donations is December 11th. 

We are focusing our energy on our Christmas Eve services so you can enjoy Christmas day with the people you love. Have a wonderful Christmas and we’ll see you back at CityPoint on New Year’s Day at 10:15 & 11:45.

Connection Point – Starting in January 

For the month of December, we put Connection Pont on pause but we will begin again in January so make plans to attend. 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 service. Connection Point begins the first Sunday of every month with Class 101. If you have questions, please email us at info@citypointchurch.com.


Preschool Corner

It’s Christmastime! Our preschool and nursery team love this time of year. The songs, the crafts, the games and the wondrous telling of the birth of our Savior throughout the month of December. Your kiddos will know Christmas isn’t about the candy and toys, but about the best present ever….Jesus!

Be sure to join us on Sunday, December 18th for our fun, festive parties in the 3’s and 4’s-Kinder classes! Everyone leaves with a treat and a little holiday cheer!


City Kids

There’s a lot happening with City Kids in December and heading into the New Year. Our Gospel Project series continues with the Israelite’s captivity in Babylon and their eventual return to their homeland. God sustained his people during 70 years of slavery. As God’s vision to Ezekiel showed, dry bones would once again be made whole, and God would breathe life again into Israel. That hope was a foreshadowing of what God would provide us with Jesus.

Regarding Christmas festivities, our fun “Polar Express” night returns on Friday, December 9th at 7 p.m. and we will have a 2nd showing on Saturday, December 10th at 2 p.m. The hot chocolate and marshmallows will be ready! We will also be having a Christmas birthday celebration for Jesus on December the 18th. Your kids will not want to miss either of these fun events.
Another important announcement for December is that we have started collecting summer camp Dry Gulch deposits.

It may seem premature to be discussing summer camp. However, Dry Gulch is such a popular camp, when the application process opens at the beginning of the year, any available spots will be gone quickly. It is critical that we send in deposits to reserve your kid’s place at camp. If your child is 7 years of age by June 19 and no older than 12, they are eligible to go. Our projected date for camp will be June 19th thru the 24th. Camp deposits are $100 per child and should be turned in by the week of December 11th. The camp is not exclusive to only City Point kids, but others are welcome. If you have neighbors, friends, or relatives that would like to go, please pass on the information to them and let us know about it A.S.AP.
Finally, joining the City Kids Elementary team is a great way to get connected. Come check us out. We’d love to meet you. castile@citypointchurch.com


Uprise

Holiday Break
Uprise Youth had a great semester with our student community groups! We met in homes in Rowlett and Allen for 12 weeks and finished up a great study on who Jesus is. We can’t wait to pick back up next semester when community groups start again so keep an eye out for sign-ups in the new year. In the meantime, the holidays are a great time for students to get involved on Sundays and join a Point Team to serve with.
Email uprise@citypointchurch.com for more info on joining a team or come see Andrew & Liz any Sunday morning.

Summer Camp 2017
