This past weekend we were so blessed to have Benny Yu with us. I’m grateful that our primary ministry partner in Mexico in the fight against human trafficking leads and ministers from a place of humility and deep love for Jesus. What a blessing that we get to partner with Benny and the El Pozo De Vida team to fight human trafficking and share the Kingdom of God! I’m also so grateful we got to celebrate the baptism of five brothers and sisters this last weekend- along with several others who said yes to Jesus for the first time… it’s powerful to experience life-changing connections together!
Let me share some updates with you for the coming week or so:
1. Join us as the sermon series “Live That Love!” continues this weekend with Pastor Rick.
This coming weekend the message series in 1 John will continue – and Pastor Rick McGee will be doing the teaching. Yes – the new guy’s up! 😉 just a heads up- we will NOT have our regularly scheduled 5pm service on Saturday night- but the block party will conclude with a short outdoor service around that time. But we WILL have regular service times in person and online for Sunday AM at 9 & 11! Be a bringer!
2. This Saturday is the CP SUMMER BLOCK PARTY at 3pm!
We are celebrating connection and community this coming weekend with a massive block party and it’s almost here!!! Saturday, July 31st from 3pm – 6pm… put it on your calendar! It’s going to be a night filled with games, fun, community, music, food, and so much more! We can’t wait to see you there! The Block Party will be held in lieu of the Saturday night service. Be sure to bring your blankets and chairs! Don’t forget to be a bringer and invite your friends and family to join the fun!
3. Share the love with students in need through the CP BACKPACK DRIVE!
This weekend July 31st / Aug 1st (all services) we will collect backpacks for our drive! You have the option to fill a new backpack with any of the items listed OR make a generous donation of $30 for a “Backpack Kit” that we will put together for you!! Either way, we thank you for helping students in need! To make a donation or see the list of items today click HERE.
4. Come be part of SEEK NIGHT next week on next Wednesday, Aug. 4th – doors open at 6pm.
If you have a stirring inside for something more, then SEEK NIGHT is for you! SEEK NIGHT is a time for us to gather and worship, pray, and seek God together. During SEEK NIGHT, we create time for experiencing the gifts of the Spirit with more of a free-flow approach. It’s going to be awesome! SEEK NIGHT officially starts at 6:30pm, but we have a tradition of starting at 6:15pm, with a time to soak in God’s presence even before the official start time. Pastor Aaron Russ will be ministering this Seek Night – YAY! Plan to come early, and be bold in seeking the Lord; ask someone to join you at the altar to pray at 6:15 before we start! Childcare in CP KIDS is available!
