Thursday Thoughts

1. Sunday Morning Worship - This week we will continue our new series on prayer entitled, "Prayer Is...." Pastor Debbie will be preaching on James 4:1-10, looking at how prayer is supposed to transform us in a message entitled, "Spring Cleaning". Invite a friend and a neighbor and we hope to see you at 8am, 9:30am, or 11am! All are welcome, all are invited.

2. Prayer Vigil - To go along with our summer preaching series on "Prayer Is," we are hosting a prayer vigil on Thursday, July 12th from 8:30am to 4:30pm. Signups are currently full for praying in our prayer chapel, but you are encouraged to find some time on that day to pray for our church and its ministries, our surrounding community, our country and the world. If you would like guidance on ways to pray for this day you can email Jenn Landstedt, by clicking here, and she can provide you with a sheet of information. Jeremiah 29:12 ~ Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.

3. Churchwide BBQ - It is that time of year again! We will be hosting our annual churchwide summer barbeque after all three worship services on Sunday, July 15th in the Familly Life Center. The menu is smoked pulled pork, coleslaw, baked beans, watermelon, chips, and chocolate delight. There will be slips in the bulletin this week to fill out and drop in the offering plate to register - or you may call the church office.

The deadline to register is Wednesday, July 11th and it is coming quick.

Don't miss out on this great time of food and fellowship.

4. We Need You! - We are in need of a few people to help on Sunday mornings.

  • The first way is with the tech aspects of worship at our 8am and 11am worship services. We will provide all the training, but we need people to help with the PowerPoint and soundboard operations during the services. These positions are very important to the flow and experience of worship and truly add to our time together. 
  • The other area we are looking for people is to drive a golf cart helping transport people to and from our parking lots. This is often our first point of contact and is extremely important in helping people feel welcome. 
If you are interested, please contact the church office by clicking here or calling us at (352) 787-1829. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

5. Be In the Know! - One of the great things about Community is all the options and choices you have to help make disciples and build the Kingdom. And we want you to know about as many of them as possible. The best way to do that is for you to sign up for any of the various ways we have set up to communicate with you. Here is a list of them and how you can sign up or follow them:

  • Churchwide Email System - just call the church office to sign up, (352) 787-1829 or email us by clicking here
  • Pastor's Blog - you can find the blog by clicking here. Once you are there, bookmark it and you can even subscribe to have email updates of new posts sent to you automatically. The subscribe box is on the side underneath Pastor Debbie's Photo and Bio.

I hope you will take advantage of as many of these avenues for communication as possible. There is a lot happening at Community and we do not want you to miss a thing! 

Have a great weekend!
