Thursday Thoughts

1. Sunday Morning Worship - This week we will begin a brand new preaching series centered around our Methodist heritage. Pastor Loida kicks things off this week with "A Methodist Loves God" as she reflects on Matthew 22:36-38. We will also be celebrating communion at all three Sunday services.

Invite a friend to come with you this weekend. We'll be worshipping at 8am, 9:30am, and 11am.

*Just a reminder. There is no Thursday Seven02Worship during January and February as our Upwards League reaches out to the community in that space.

2. Winterfest - It's here! This weekend. Saturday!

This is a great opportunity for us to share the love and grace of Christ with the people of this community. If you have never had the chance to come to Winterfest, I want you to imagine our entire grass lot covered with all sorts of food tents, rides, and an ice slide. You can come and climb a rock wall, jump in a bounce house, eat fried dough and hot dogs, and travel down a slide made of ice. And that is just a portion of what is available. The list goes on and on – chili cook-off, prizes, entertainment from local groups, a place to be prayed over, and more. Oh, and did I mention that everything is free. Free admission, free rides, free food, and free prizes. It is all free!

Please be in prayer for the event and we'll see you outside!

3. GROW Night Has Returned - Wednesday Night dinners and the kickoff for new GROW night classes have begun. We have new class choices and new subjects aimed at helping you grow deeper in your faith. These classes are great ways to explore your faith, meet new people, and feel the power of the Holy Spirit in your life. We hope you will make plans to join us each week as we GROW together!

4. UPWARDS is in full swing! - Practices for basketball and cheerleading are on Tuesdays in the Family Life Center and games are on Thursdays throughout January and February.

We've got a great group of kids signed up to participate and wonderful adults to help out - please keep this program in your prayers for a safe season of good sportsmanship; and if you have a chance, come on out on a Thursday at 6pm for the juniors and 7pm for the seniors and cheer these kids on!

5. A New Adventure! - A new year can bring with it new adventures. If you are looking for a new adventure in your life here at Community, we have an opportunity for you. We are looking for volunteers in several areas of our Sunday morning time together. We are looking for Ushers, Communion Stewards, Golf Cart Drivers, and Tech Booth Operators. No previous experience is needed and we will provide all the training. We are extremely grateful for those that are volunteering in these capacities right now and would love to welcome more people to these ministries.

It takes many hands to make our Sunday mornings as special as they are, and we could use your help. If you are interested in volunteering in any of these areas, please contact the church office and we will get you plugged in. We look forward to seeing you at worship and working with you as we worship our Gracious God together!

Have a wonderful rest of your week and we look forward to seeing you in worship this weekend!
