February Newsletter

February Series

When you feel down and out, you may be down, but you’re never out. There is still hope. Sure, you may be behind. It may be the Bottom of the 9th, but there is still a chance to turn this game around. Join us in February as we look at how to turn things around.

Community Groups

We kick off a new 12-week semester of Community Groups on February 22nd that will end on May 9th. This semester we will, again, focus on one very simple goal – “Make a Friend”. Our hope is that by the end of the 12 weeks we will all have a new friend or friends in our life. Our small groups are Free Market groups which means they can be just about anything. We will send an email soon with the list of groups and give you an opportunity to register.

Do You Want To Host a Group?

If you are interested in hosting a group please let us know at info@citypointchurch.com. We will have host training on Tuesday, February 9th at 7:00 PM.

Winter Party

We are throwing a Winter party! We have planned a special day to help turn around those Winter-time blues. We have invited some of the characters from Frozen; Elsa, Anna and Olaf to join us that day. They will be in the lobby before and after each service to meet the kiddos and for you to take photos. We will have games and a ton of fun so invite your friends and let’s party!

Join us on February 21st at 6:30 for a night of worship with the CityPoint band and Pastor Eddie. We will take our time and enjoy the presence of God. Childcare is available for birth through 6th grade – no registration is required. This night is open to the public – so invite a few friends along!

Kids Camp

If you attended Summer Camp as a kid then you can remember how life changing it was. In fact, statistics tell us that kids that attend camps on a regular basis as a child and student tend to have a stronger faith as an adult. We as a church want to make sure every child has this opportunity. On February 21st we will have tip jars next to our coffee and doughnut stations. We are asking everyone to bring a little extra cash and change that day and drop it in the jar as you enjoy your free hot coffee and yummy doughnuts. This will help cover transportation costs and any kids that need scholarships.

Connection Point

Connection Point is a 3-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

“Flowers….. chocolates….. promises you don’t intend to keep.” (Cogsworth – Beauty and the Beast)These words may be associated with Valentine’s day and February in general, but not with our preschoolers! This month, your kiddos will be learning about God’s love for us and sharing His love with others. Stories like the Prodigal Son, the Good Samaritan, the Loaves and Fishes and Jesus with Zacchaeus will round out our “Love Month” lineup in the babies thru kinder classes. No Valentine’s day would be complete without a festive party to celebrate on February 14th, packed with games and treats. It promises to be a very good time (and we intend to keep that promise????)

Join the Team…..Have you ever wanted to get involved at church and you enjoy little ones? We’d love to have you join the preschool team and see what the fun is all about. Serve as little as once a month. Serve with a friend or serve with your spouse. Contact Alicia Ingram at aingram@citypointchurch.com for more information!

City Kids

As City Kids continues to journey though the Gospel Project series, one thing is clear; it becomes almost impossible to look at stories like the life of Moses and not see the life of Christ emerge. We’ve been able to help the kids draw parallels between Moses as a mediator between God and Israel and Jesus being our ultimate mediator. God delivered his people from slavery in Egypt, but what will happen in the wilderness? Where will He lead them? Our next few lessons will focus on the Ten Commandments and God’s Holiness.

If you would like to volunteer in our City Kids ministry we currently have multiple opportunities to serve. All adult participants will be given a background check. Junior High helpers are also welcome. Contact Joel, Cheryl, or Nelson at castile@citypointchurch.com

Uprise Series

There’s a lot of people quoted in the Bible. From kings, to prophets, you can find almost every advice imaginable for our lives. Even God has a few things he’s credited for saying (go figure). But there was a period in time where God had a lot to say to his people, in particular Jesus’ time. In fact there are tons of Jesus quotes, some that are intriguing, others controversial. It goes without saying that all of them are very important and we should pay close attention. This month, join us as we examine some of His more famous quotes He said during his time on earth.

ATTENTION ALL MIDDLE SCHOOL & HIGH SCHOOL

Parents! We are really excited to announce that Uprise will be attending VERGE Summer Camp this year!! We’ve decided to host a meeting on Sunday, February 28th, after the 3rd service, in the Connection Point/VIP Classroom. Important information like camp costs & camp location will be discussed as well as opportunities for questions to be answered. We hope to see you there!
We want to give your students an opportunity to offer help to the victims of the tornado that occurred the day after Christmas. On Saturday, February 20th Uprise will be serving at Church In The City’s Relief Center and sharing the love of Christ to the community of Rowlett. More details will be announced soon.
