The party has started!!! All month we are celebrating our TEN YEAR anniversary. We are excited beyond measure to share the stories, honor people along the way, and thank Jesus for all that He has done. And the best is yet to come!!!
As part of our celebration, we will be handing out free Coffee Church shirts all month. We already ran out, so the new order has been placed! Aren’t our people the best? The shirts are free, but pass on the blessing by giving extra to our missionaries around the world. We are highlighting four missionaries this month in honor of our ten year and we want to be generous with all that God has blessed you with. What a privilege!
We also passed out coffee tins with coffee candy in them and a note about our story. You’ll have to watch the sermon below to truly appreciate the history of our coffee tins! It’s been quite the adventure, but with all of the challenges, all of the ups and downs…it is WORTH it!
We took a special offering for our FIRST missionaries, Chris and Heather Schneider. Ironically, I just got off of a Facebook conversation and they have a need of about $4000 right now. Would you take some time and pray that God would provide for them? Make sure you listen to see if God would have you sacrifice as well.
ALSO, you can sign up for our Growth Groups right now. Signups are going great as our groups prepare to start next week. See your options at www.coffeechurch.com.
And a special shout out for our young adults group. They are knocking it out of the park right now, so if you’re out of high school and need a great group of people to hang out with, register under the Growth Groups link and they will track you down! 🙂
AND congrats to all of our new 6th graders who celebrated their first night at The Difference Youth. I’m pretty excited for you all because I know what the last year in youth group has meant to my own daughter. It’s a special place!
AND our Kindergartners are on their way to KidCity! It’s a big transition for our young ones, but it’s an EXCEPTIONALLY well run class for our K-5th Graders. If your kindergartner isn’t one that makes transitions easily, talk to our kid’s pastor, Andrea Garner. She is very helpful and takes the time to make sure kids go at the best pace for their personality. You can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org. She also loves having other moms and dads volunteer, so if you’d like to be a part of your elementary schoolers spiritual growth at church, let her know that as well!
Speaking of Andrea…HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the best kid’s pastor and one of my favorite people!!! You are a joy to do life with and I am grateful for your investment into my kids!
Phew! Make sure you are at the next three weeks of church because we are just scratching the surface of FUN! 😉
Here’s the video of last week. You’ll enjoy the history!
