Dear friends,

 

 

“He will be a sure foundation for your times…” I want to share this thought with you; we’re living in times that feel uneasy – and it’s okay to say so. But  in moments like the ones we are living through, we get to more deeply embrace our faith in who our God really is! And the scripture I read today in Isaiah 33 says this: “He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the LORD is the key to this treasure.”And that’s the truth! I declare that over your life today! I pray you’ll take a beat, and take a deep breath and embrace this as eternal truth, and right-now truth! And at the same time, I want to ask you to celebrate something with me: Last week, 3 people said yes to Jesus for the first time, and we welcomed 10 new families as guests at Centerpoint Church. That’s us, together, loving and leading people to life-changing connections with Christ! That’s us, together, living out our mission! 

Now, let me share with you some ways you can engage and connect with your church family:

1.  Sermon Series “ONE” Continues This Weekend!! 

This weekend I’m continuing with part two of our ONE message series. In this message, I’m going to share from the book of Ephesians – four crucial dynamics we are called to embrace as God’s people who are many – and who are one. Join me in person or online, Saturday at 5, or Sunday at 9 & 11!

2. “Chasing What Matters” Singles Conference this Saturday, October 23rd!!

If you are single, dating, engaged, divorced, widowed, or never married, you are invited to the 4th annual singles conference, Chasing What Matters! It will take place this Saturday, October 23rd from 9am-1pm on the CP campus. Motivational speakers, comedy, praise & worship, lunch, prizes and more.  Invite a friend and come join!

3. Ready to take the plunge of a lifetime? GET BAPTIZED!

This weekend, October 23rd and 24th, I invite you to take the next step in your discipleship journey by being baptized during our weekend services! Being baptized is a step you take to publicly declare that you belong to Jesus and prophetically invite His resurrection power into your life. If you’re ready to be baptized, sign up HERE

4. Centerpoint Men: Register today for the CP MEN WAR ROOM Men’s Retreat on October 29-31!

Men of Centerpoint – do you want to connect with the guys in your church family and go deeper in your faith? Living out your faith in real-time in this world is war, and you need a way to be prepared for victory. Come experience WAR ROOM, our CP MEN’S RETREAT! This retreat will help you to be challenged to seek God’s will and the strength to carry it out! I’m the speaker for our men’s retreat, and I sense God stirring in a way to make this retreat deeply impactful. Our men’s retreat will help you embrace the power and strength of God so you can live with greater power, love, impact, and integrity. The retreat is just a few weeks away—register here today! 

5. Dedicate your child this month!

Four times a year we provide a moment in our weekend services for child dedications. This is your opportunity to commit to the Lord that you will responsibly care for that which He has entrusted to you—giving your child love, instruction, and discipline! Most importantly, you are committing to give him or her a clear example of what it means to love Jesus with all of your heart. Child dedications are taking place Saturday, October 30th at 5 pm & Sunday, October 29th at 9 am & 11 am. Sign Up today!

6. Operation Christmas Child: Help sponsor a child!

I know it’s still ‘pumpkin season’, but let’s get our hearts ready for Christmas by locking arms with Operation Christmas Child! The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world by delivering shoeboxes full of toys and necessities! Partner with this project by sponsoring a shoe box for $10 and/or participating in our packing party!  Register here to sponsor or here to come pack with us on November 6.

In Conclusion…

I’m grateful for so many members of our church that are joining me in person each weekend; I celebrate the intangible reality of God’s amazing presence we get to experience together! I also thank God for the nearly 350 people who are part of our church online each week. While we are not in the same room, we are in the same Body experiencing the same Jesus who is the centerpoint no matter how we come together. I’m grateful His goodness and love know no bounds! By the way – if you do join online, be sure to put something in the comments from time to time so we can be sure to connect well together! 

That’s all for now… God bless you and see you soon, CP fam!
