Plan Ahead- Easter Events

It’s a busy time here at church and we wanted to share the following with you:

1)  DAYLIGHT SAVINGS– Don’t forget to set your clocks ahead one hour this weekend for Daylight Savings time!

2)  Mission of the Church Sunday– March 20th — a special Sunday with a special schedule…

     8:15 am Service – Pastor Gene will be teaching on our Calvary Community

     9:45 am- Combined Adult Classes in the Auditorium where Pastor Logan will be teaching on Growing in   Groups

     10:45 am Service – Pastor LaPine will be teaching on Mobilizing Groups in Evangelism

 

3) Easter Cantata/Drama – Our Choir, Orchestra and Drama cast will be presenting, “The Cross – The Power of God” on Saturday evening at 6:30 pm, and again on Sunday morning at 10:45 am. Invite your family and friends!

 

4)  Easter Egg Hunt Activity – Word has gotten out! We were contacted by Texas Roadhouse this week to come to our event and bring some free meal tokens for kids and bring their mascot. We have agreed to have them come and they are bringing some of their buns and honey cinnamon butter for the volunteers! They allowed us to advertise to their workers, 110 of them, and most of them have children. Over 1,400 postcards went out in the mail last week about this event too!It’s out on Community calendars and more. Last year there were about 300 people here for this event and most of them were not from the church. The Gospel will be clearly given to each child and guardian who come to this event in the form of a devotional time. It is a GREAT opportunity to give the Gospel to our community!

 

We still need your help! Thank you to all who have already signed up and or brought items for this event! There are still items that are needed, but more importantly, we need your help! We are in need of greeters who will just walk around and visit with all of the visitors during the morning. All you have to do is be a friendly face and make them feel welcome and answer questions they may have. We also need a few more people to work in the kitchen, as craft helpers, game helpers or leaders, cookie decorating helpers, and Egg Hunt leaders too. If you can help with this event, please sign up in the foyer this week or email the office as we would love to have your help!

 

Thank you so much! We realize that it is a very busy weekend and we are so thankful for all of your support, prayers and help. Have a wonderful afternoon!

Family Christmas Sunday School Hour- December 27

On Sunday, December 27th, we will be having a Family Christmas during the Sunday School hour. All classes will be combined that day as families will stay together. The idea would be to have a few men from the church speak and Pastor will also be doing a devotional and story for the kids. He would like you to consider choosing one of the following questions and to briefly share your answer:

  1. Why was this Christmas special to you?
  2. What is your greatest Christmas memory?
  3. What is one thing that you would like to teach your kids about Christmas?
  4. What is the greatest gift you could give at Christmas?
  5. What is something that happened in your childhood, or even adulthood, that helped you understand what Christmas really is?
 
If you would be willing to share, please contact Pastor LaPine or the church office.  If you have any questions, please ask!
