Week of July 8, 2018

A few needs and upcoming gatherings which you should be aware of:

Furniture Needs

 As we prepare to welcome David Watts into the CtR family and outfit his new office, if you have an office desk or book shelves you are willing to donate, please let Amy or Brian know as soon as possible. Thank you!

Men’s Meeting

The men of CtR will meet this coming Tuesday, July 10th from 7:30 – 8:30 p.m. at the home of Steven Dickens (3215 Omohundro Avenue, Norfolk). An Evite was sent out, but if you have further questions, contact Zach Kuenzli.

Tides Baseball Game

If you plan to attend the Tides Baseball game August 15th, but have not yet let Steven Dickens know, do so as soon as possible, because he must give the Tides a final count this week.

August Congregational Gathering

This year, instead of a week of Vacation Bible School, the entire church family (and visitors!) are invited to attend, “Spiritual Formation Through Family Worship,” from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. August 6-9, 2018. This should prove to be a great way to encourage home worship time, as well as build inter-generational relationships, to strengthen our church body, and help us all connect what happens on Sunday mornings to our life at home during the week.

The sessions will be arranged around our existing small groups, so if you are not part of one of these, please contact Jennifer Brown and she will see you are added to a group. Each group will meet at the church either Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday evening, then we will gather as one group for Thursday evening’s culmination. A meal will be provided Monday-Wednesday and Thursday will be a covered dish dinner.

     The groups are as follows:

Monday Night, August 6th: Harper, Brown/Branch and Women’s Groups

Tuesday Night, August 7th: Reed and Reyes Groups

Wednesday Night, August 8th: Watkins, Gyorfi and Fraser Groups

If you have any questions, contact Jennifer Brown.

Name Badges

If you do not have a name badge to wear on Sundays, please check the counter top in the Fellowship Hall (underneath the large map of Rwanda) to see if one has been made for you. Then choose the holder you would like. As we grow, it is good to wear our name badges on Sundays as a way to welcome new comers and get to know each other. If you have any questions, or do not see your name badge on the counter, please contact Anne Reed Harper, or email Amy at the CtR office.

Looking forward to worshiping with you this week
