Yesterday, we closed a chapter in our church’s history. Yesterday we celebrated John and Nikki for allowing us to meet as a church in their home for the last year and 4 months. We are extremely grateful for their kindness and generosity. That celebration also marked the last regular Sunday service that we will have in their home.
That takes us to the beginning of the next chapter. As of next Sunday, we will be meeting in the Ramada Inn Conference Center. Our service time will change to 5:00 pm. We are excited about this move and we invite you to join us in prayer as we make this transition. We are praying that we will have 50 people join us for our first worship gathering in our new space.
Don’t forget that we have extended the deadline for the money jars. We are using the money jars to purchase a GoPro camera. We are going to be introducing a new series in January that will be using video for the series and we need the camera to be able to shoot the parts for our video.
FaithPoint has been invited to once again participate in City of Byron’s Nightmare on Main Street. The trick or treat fun time is going to take place on October 31. As of next Sunday, we are asking you to bring candy so that we can pass it out at our table. We want to engage as many people as possible and invite them to know Jesus and invite them to our church. We would also like volunteers to come and pass out candy at our table. If you are interested, please let me know.
Please consider packing a shoebox for Operation Christmas Child. We will be collecting your packed shoeboxes until the second week of November. We will pray over the shoeboxes that each child that receives one would be radically saved by Jesus and that Jesus would draw that child’s family to himself.
We also want to support the teachers in our church. When you purchase items at the grocery store please look for the Box Tops for Education logo and cut it out. We want the schools that our teachers work at to become facilities that are less known for poverty, drugs and violence and become facilities that are known for knowledge, learning, and see these schools blessed by Jesus.
We will be building a big gift box for our local Ronald McDonald House. Please think about what you would like to give to them and begin collecting those items. We will announce the date later for when you can bring those items with you to church to be collected.
This week, I and elders in training, Marcus and James will be attending Catalyst in Atlanta. Please pray for us that this would be a time of learning, direction, vision and being energized and refreshed by the Holy Spirit.
I am excited about our first service in our new space. I hope you are too. I will see you on Sunday!
