Christmas Program Practice: Begins November 12th
This year the kids will be doing a Christmas performance during the service on December 17th. Please invite all your friends and family to come watch! All kids who want to participate, preschool age and up, should meet in the older kids classroom right after their Sunday class is dismissed (instead of joining parents in the service) for a 20 minute practice. We will practice together for the next several Sunday’s and we will have a final practice on Saturday, December 16th (more details to come). If you have any questions please talk to Hannah Cross (970-443-5391) or Lisa Furr (970-302-7606).
Youth Group Event: November 20th @ 7:15p.m.
Youth Group is invited to a “conversation partner” activity with the Immigrant and Refugee Center of Northern Colorado (formerly Right to Read) located at 917 10th Ave in Greeley. This will involve approximately one hour of getting to talk to different students attending English classes at the center, which offers practice for them to use English in a non-traditional classroom setting, as well as an opportunity for you to see some of the diversity of your community here in Greeley. We will provide guidelines and suggested conversation starters, and each pair will have around 5 minutes to ask each other questions and simply talk. We ask that participants be 14 or older to come alone, or under 14 with an accompanying adult. Not only is this an easy way to get to know our neighbors, but it also is an excellent experience to add to a college resume. Afterwards we will go out for ice cream! Contact Summer Knoshaug or Mike Bonnell with any questions, hope to see you there!
Moms in Prayer: Every Tuesday
In a culture that seeks to steal our children, we are moms who gather one hour each week to battle for them and their schools in prayer. When we place our children and their schools into God’s care, He calms our fears and fills us with His peace and hope. That’s what Moms in Prayer is all about.
Rebecca Andrews and Janet Grove will be starting a Moms in Prayer group that will start Oct. 24th. We will meet at the Grove’s home every Tuesday starting at 8:15am. There will be an adjoining room for kiddos if you need to bring any with you.
Please contact Rebecca (970-391-9101 or email@example.com) or Janet with any questions you might have.
Youth Group Operations Christmas Child Boxes: December 16th, 2017
We can take 16 kids to the processing center on Saturday Dec 16th. We will be leaving around 8:00 am and will not be back until late afternoon/early evening. **Kids must be 13 to go!**. Please let Laura Polk know if you are interested in attending.
Honduras Mission Trip
Have you ever felt the desire or call to be involved in international missions? We will be taking a team of people to serve on a short-term mission trip in Choluteca Honduras June 16-24, 2018. We will be working with the Great Commission Church in Choluteca to serve and share the Gospel in an orphanage, and work in some of the poorest neighborhoods in their community.
If you are interested in joining this outreach, please contact Jason Hubbard for more information. (email: firstname.lastname@example.org, 970-301-2981)
Perspectives on the World Christian Movement
This is an amazing opportunity to gain the perspectives on the world that you may not naturally have. As was mentioned on Sunday, childcare is absolutely free no matter how many children you have, so you parents can do this together at the couple rate, which should be about $22/week for about 15 or so weeks. These are the cheapest date nights you may ever have, and maybe the most intentional and beneficial. For an overview of what Perspectives is you can go to perspectives.org. Here is some of the information for the class offered in Greeley
Location: Cornerstone Community Church 1321 9th Avenue
Time: Tuesdays 6-9pm
Dates: January 16, 2018- May 1, 2018
