Neighborhood News – September 14, 2017

Casting Call

In this Sunday’s Good News Discipleship class we’ll see how salvation history can be understood as a six-act play, God’s grand drama of redemption, and what it means for us to be in Act 5. We have been cast as characters, given scripts, and invited onto the stage to live out redemption with God until the Final Act when Christ returns!  Hope you can make it (9:00am).

Pastor Jeremy

 

Events

Responding To Hurricane Harvey and Irma

Jesus saw the crowds and had compassion on them because they were…helpless.  Embedded in the destructive wake of both Harvey and Irma, Alliance churches are ready to extend the love of Jesus to neighbors suffering great loss.

We can help. Already Alliance churches in the NW and throughout America are acting to stand beside those affected. CAMA (Compassion and Mercy Associates), a wing of the Christian & Missionary Alliance, is on the ground in Houston and Florida, mobilizing the effort.

What these churches need more than anything at this stage in the relief process are funds. If every household from an Alliance Northwest church donates $10, together we’ll enable God’s people to serve their neighbors in need.

Will you give $10 this Sunday? Gifts will flow through CAMA to brothers and sisters helping neighbors.

Also, will you pray for these churches as they serve in the name of Jesus?

Neighborhood Groups

Sunday morning worship is great to gather with our larger community but can be hard to connect with individuals.   Neighborhood Groups are our way to help you connect and do life together.  It’s a time to catch up with others, study the Bible, figure out how to live what you’ve learned and then pray for what you are learning or what you are going through in life.  We believe God speaks to us all, so our goal is to help continue that conversation with others.

Our fall block begins mid September and runs until Christmas, so please sign up now so we can get you connected.  You can sign up by either: 1) Clicking here to register online or 2) Fill out a form at the information desk on Sunday.

If you have any questions, please call the church office or contact Pastor Eric at ebyers@crossroadscma.com.
