Victory News

I thought this was one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a while. It’s what event sharing looks like without Facebook! Someone who isn’t even a member of our church got one of our 9:09 postcards in the mail at her apartment building last week and posted this on her door. It just goes to show you that there are many different ways you can invite someone to church. It doesn’t even have to be that difficult. All it takes sometimes is a little creativity and some courage, and maybe a little scotch tape.

What stories do you have this year so far about inviting someone to “check this out with me”?

This Sunday would be a great time to invite someone to check out church with you at 9:09. I’ll be talking about something that I think we all need to hear. As we continue our Supernatural series we’ll hear how God promises to provide for us and how he can take our little and turn it into much. If you’ve ever worried, Will I have enough? or you’ve ever thought, But I only have this much…. then you won’t want to miss out on hearing this message.

Jesus can take your “only” and turn it into plenty.

Our winter session of Sheep Squads, our small group ministry, is starting up. Here’s a link to a menu of options for you to find a group that works for you. If you don’t see anything that looks like a good fit, feel free to contact our groups coordinator, Daniel Tomczyk. We’re always looking to start new groups so that everyone has some friends who’ve got their back.

Monday night we had a long but productive Leadership Team meeting. By God’s grace there is a lot happening! Some official documents were signed and notarized. Closing on the Loomis Rd. land will be taking place this coming Wednesday. Look for a more detailed update about the meeting in this Sunday’s bulletin.

Mark your calendars! On Sunday, March 2nd, we will be having a special “church and a movie” event. We’ll worship at our regular time of 9:09. Then following the service at a time yet to be determined (around 10:30 or 11) we’ll be having a special showing of the movie Son of God which premieres that week in theaters across the country. Think about this as a great opportunity to invite a friend. More information to come soon.

Married folks, routine maintenance pays off. You change oil in your car and the filter in your furnace to keep them running longer. Give your marriage the attention it needs to flourish and run all the way to the end. There are a couple opportunities you might be interested in. Like this Facebook page for information and regular updates.
