Here are the things you need to know as we head into the month of July:
- Vacation Bible School begins on Monday June 29 and runs through Friday July 3 from 9:00 am to noon. Please commit to pray for the VBS, the teachers and children and their families, that God will be pleased to bless them during the time. Please note as well that the building is already decorated for the event. Jennifer asks all of us (but especially the parents of younger children) to be appreciative yet respectful of the set-up (some can be easily damaged or overturned).
- ‘Five Loaves Food Pantry’ Service Opportunity: We are planning on serving with Brother Tim at the Food Pantry in Newport News on Tuesday, July 28 (4-7:00 pm). Mark your calendars now and let Jennifer know that you are planning on coming (firstname.lastname@example.org).
- Name-Tag Push! Christ the Redeemer is known for its gracious hospitality, but it is not known for our ‘wearing of name tags’! Let’s change that reality by making an effort – as an act of hospitality – to put on our ‘tags’ each Sunday. They may be found on the shelves just inside the main hallway outside the Nursery.
- ‘PEARUSA National Assembly’ is set for November 4-7 near Charlotte NC. Registration is now open at ‘pearusaassembly.org’. The theme for the week is “Bear Much Fruit” and it promises to be a wonderful time of teaching, fellowship and encouragement. Check out the web site and mark your calendars now.
Looking forward to worshiping with you all on Sunday.
