Sept. 9 Coffee Church Highlights

Jammed packed weekend!

Happy Birthday to Andrea!  She is our Kid’s Coordinator over at Hazel Dell and does a great job of keeping the younger kids staffed with amazing leaders.  We hope you had a wonderful birthday!

We also had another important birthday on Sunday morning.  Clara turned 8 and she decided to show her love for Jesus by being baptized on her special day!  Clara is a little girl that LOVES the Word of God.  She reads it, she knows it, and she lives it!  Let the Bible do a big chunk of parenting for you.  If it’s IN them, it will come OUT of them.  Way to go, Clara (and her amazing parents, Tim & Cheryl)!

Congrats to Nick (Battle Ground Coordinator) and Matt (Hazel Dell Worship) for running the Warrior Dash on Saturday.  Mud and running…I don’t get it.

Emily at HD and Jordan at BG lead worship and both did a great job.  Emily gets special props because her drummer (aka her husband) wounded his hand pretty bad in a dirt bike accident…we don’t have enough drummers as is, so if they could protect their hands, that would be awesome!

Happy Anniversary to Wayne and Jenny!  FORTY YEARS!  What an awesome example of loving your spouse!

Lots of new faces joined us over the summer.  Make sure you take a minute and meet some new friends.  I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know some of these people and look forward to having them as a part of our church!

Small groups open for registration in about a week.  Stay tuned to for the online version on Saturday night to get signed up.  We also send it all out via email, so if you want to be added to our list, just email and we’ll make that happen asap.

Simply Worship is coming to Battle Ground on Sept. 18 and Hazel Dell on Sept. 19.  It’s a night of worship, prayer, and communion from 7-8:00 pm.  Pretty simple, but in the presence of Jesus, your life can be pretty amazing.

We are looking for an administrative person for organizing the Kid’s Check in, Nursery, and Tiny Town over at Battle Ground.  The short job description: find and train any needed volunteers for all of those positions (we already have a long list of great volunteers to begin with), greet parents on Sundays, and send a reminder email about serving and the curriculum once a week to your leaders.  Email me at if you are interested in volunteering in this particular way.

God’s busy doing great work in people’s lives.  It you want to be encouraged, just ask someone what He’s up to in their life!  Be blessed!
