June Series

Running With The Giants

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us” (Hebrews 12:1).

We are not the first ones to run this race. In this series, we will look at people of uncommon faith and see how they would encourage us. The world we live in is different than theirs, but our hearts are not. They have lessons to teach us as they cheer us on from the grandstands of heaven.

Father’s Day is June 17th!

This Father’s Day at City Point is all about the freedom of the open road! We’ve got an awesome day planned for the whole family – including Corn Hole tournaments, outdoor grilling, ice cold drinks and lots of motorcycles. And, if that wasn’t enough – we will be giving away an electric smoker! So, celebrate that cool Dad in your life and tell him he can ride his sweet hog to church this Father’s Day – we’ll even save him a parking place out front!

Get started on the pathway to discovering your purpose and realizing your potential with our Connection Point class! We talk about healthy habits of a believer, how to make a difference in the world you live in and we also share the vision of City Point. If you recently became a follower of Christ or you are interested in joining City Point Church, this is the class for you. Connection Point takes place every six weeks on a Sunday night, from 5:00–8:00 PM, at the end of the class we will share a meal together. To sign up for the next available class, just click on the link below to register so we can include you in the meal and provide childcare if needed.

Sign Up Today to Register for Water Baptism on June 10th!

At City Point, we believe that water baptism is a celebration of your decision to follow Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Just as the symbols of the wedding and wedding ring are a declaration of a marriage covenant, water baptism is the outward declaration of the covenant you’ve made with God. As your church, we would like to stand with you as you publicly declare you have made the decision to surrender your life to the Lord. Our next Water Baptism will be during 2nd Service on March 25th. To sign up, click the registration link below.

Get involved and serve the community this Summer!  On July 9thand 10th, City Point will be participating in the Boyd Summer Lunch Program.  From 11:00am – 1:00pm, we’ll be preparing and serving meals to children at Boyd Elementary. During this time, we’ll also enjoy crafts and outdoor games with the kiddos. To sign-up and learn more, click the link below!

Pow! Bam!  Krunch! Comic book speech bubbles seen when the hero fights the bad guy. Faith! Tenacity! Selflessness!Descriptive words used for many of our Bible heroes.

Some of these heroes didn’t mean to be heroes. They were just in the right place at the right time. This month in preschool, our kiddos will be learning about some of these guys and gals. Learning to trust and obey God, turning to Him in times of trouble are qualities found in these heroes. Let’s learn from the best this June. Boom!

City Kids

Summer is here! City Kids has a great summer planned. There will “Summer Sundays”, with prize giveaways, VBS, and Dry Gulch Summer Camp. It’s going to be a great summer!

In City Kids services we will be starting a new volume of our Gospel Project called “Come, Lord Jesus.” This volume of 13 weeks will take us to the end of the Bible. Wow! Hard to believe that we started in Genesis and have made our way through the entire Bible, with every story pointing to Jesus. With each lesson pointing to Jesus, we often give opportunities for our kids to respond to the Gospel and they do. We’ve had lots of raised hands and kids asking Jesus to be their Lord and Savior.

Our 5thand 6thgraders in Club 56 started a new series about the book of Acts. Acts is much more that a book that chronicles the activities of the early church. It’s a testament to the work of the Holy Spirt in the life of believers. Our 5thand 6thgraded are learning about and connecting with what the Spirit does in us.

It’s not unusual for people to become disconnected with stories in the Bible, thinking in terms of things that happened “a long time ago.” Where’s the relevance for today? How does this apply to me? The Club 56 study of Acts changes that context. It’s the “continuation” of God’s story. Pray that our young people connect with the very real presence of the Holy Spirt in them and what God wants to do through them.

City Kids is a great place to connect with other believers and make a great impact. Come check us out. We’d love to meet you.
