LORD’S SUPPER AND POCKET CHANGE OFFERING
We will have the Lord’s Supper Sunday, May 16. At the conclusion of the service we will be taking up a “pocket change offering”. The pocket change this month will go towards Pregnancy Resource Clinic. Ushers will be available at the doors of the worship center for you to drop in your change (or bills!) as you go out.
GOSPEL CONVERSATIONS AND CHURCH INVITATIONS
In our foyer, you’ll see a picture of our city and a large board that says “Weekly Mission.” Every time you invite someone to church or have a gospel conversation, we’re asking you to put a tally mark on the board (as well as a first name or initials of who you spoke to). Then, every time you pass by the board, say a quick prayer for the people who have been invited or who heard the gospel. You’ll also find some cards next to the board that you can use to invite people to church. Let’s love our city and reach our city—together!
