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. 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 on January 8th with Class 101. If you have questions, please email us at email@example.com.
Are you ready to go ALL IN and take your faith public? We will be having water baptism Sunday, February 26th during the 10:15 & 11:45 service. What a meaningful day to take part in a foundational event for a follower of Christ! If you are interested in being baptized, please text “BAPTIZE” to 972-460-9235.
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!

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.
Finally, joining the City Kids Elementary team is a great way to get connected. Come check us out. We’d love to meet you. email@example.com
