There are hundreds of thousands of phone apps available for download. These apps can be used to wake you up, to show you where to shop, to help you count calories, or to log your exercise minutes. But they can’t actually make you get up, control your spending, manage your diet, or force you to exercise.
The App Store isn’t the only place you can find apps. Did you know that the Bible has also given us many “apps” to enhance and improve our lives?
Prayer & Fasting
We have planned a special time of prayer in preparation for the new year as we believe God for a season of fruitfulness in our church. We will have a 1 hour-long corporate prayer service from 9:00am – 10:00am on Saturday – January 16th, 23rd and 30th. Join us for this special season of prayer!
We kick off a new 12-week semester of Community Groups on February 22nd that will end on May 10th. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. We will have host training on Tuesday, February 9th at 7:00 PM.
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 10:15 service. Connection Point begins the first Sunday of every month with Class 101. If you have questions please email us at email@example.com.
City Point Turns THREE
City Point turns THREE this month and we plan to celebrate big on Sunday, January 31st. Join us as we give thanks to God for all He has done the last 36 months. The fun will be happening during all three services so pick a time and come join the party! 9:00, 10:15, 11:45. Be sure and invite your friends & family!
Are you ready to go ALL IN and take your faith public? We will be having water baptism during all services on Sunday, January 31st. What a meaningful day to take part in a foundational event for a follower of Christ! If you are interested in being baptized please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org or by filling out a Connection Card during a service and writing “Baptism” on it – you can drop it in the offering.
Flies in the sky. Gnats on the cats. Frogs in the soup. Dead cows. Just a few things the Egyptians might have experienced during Moses’ visit to Egypt. All month long, your 4’s thru Kindergarteners will be learning about the life of Moses, from the baby in the basket to the Ten Commandments. They won’t wanna miss any part of this amazing story!
In the nursery, 2’s and 3’s classes, we will be teaching about Jesus growing up. He went to church. He hung out with friends. He obeyed his parents. He grew up just like us!
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 email@example.com for more information!
2016 is here! With the new year beginning, City Kids will be highlighting another Compassion International child for the month of January. For the past two months City Kids has prayed and taken up offerings for the Compassion International children City Point Church supports. We will be learning about and praying for Lhance Kevin Ramilo from the Philippines.
Our journey through the Gospel Project continues. After starting with creation 16 weeks ago, we have seen God as creator, covenant maker, covenant keeper, and now we learn about God as a redeemer in the life of Moses. We’ll see God at work in the young nation of Israel and the demonstration of his power before Pharaoh. If your kids miss any of the bible cards we pass out each week, let us so we can keep their card collections current.
