Food Drive Offering
Arlie Boggs Elementary School in Eastern Kentucky is dear to our hearts.  Our Appalachian Mission Team partners with them every year to support the work they do in one of the most under-resourced counties in America.  We recently discovered that their weekend food program is critically low on supplies.  This vital project sends food home in backpacks with children to ensure they and their families can eat each weekend.
 Our team leaders are going there on March 9th with supplies.  Will you donate so that we can restock their pantry?  We are asking for financial contributions so that we can provide the most needed items.  You can give online today. Click here, and choose Arlie Boggs from the online drop box to mark your gift.

Marriage Seminar
Join us on Saturday, March 10th from 9 to 12 as we learn how to better communicate to resolve conflict in marriage.   The cost is $40 per couple.
You may register for childcare when you register for the seminar

Business Meeting
 Our annual business meeting for those who are CIL Partners happens Sunday, March 4th between services in the Living Room.
2:42 Groups
2:42groups meet this Sunday! Small groups are the best way to get to know each other at CIL.  We meet for good food, good conversation, a devotion, and we pray for each other.  Childcare is provided for babies through 5th grade from 4:45 until 6:45. Pick up a brochure in the lobby to learn more about each group, or click here for contact information.  We’d love to see you!

Marriage Seminar
Healthy marriages don’t just happen.  Investing time and attention in marriage is vital, and hearing outside voices speak life into our marriage is essential for long-term health. In 2016, Brent and Janice Sharpe made an impact on many couples in our community through their marriage seminar at CIL.  They are returning on Saturday, March 10th.
In the seminar “Two Becoming One,” Brent and Janis train couples in how to understand their unproductive interaction patterns when conflict arises and how to resolve issues in a way that builds emotional intimacy in marriage.
Every relationship in the room would benefit from learning how to better resolve conflict and we encourage you to put this date on your calendar.  We know that you’ll probably have to say no to another activity or event in order to be here; the growth you experience personally and as a couple will be worth it.
“Two Becoming One” is Saturday, March 10th from 9am-12pm.
The cost is $40 for a couple.  Register at www.cil.churchcenteronline.com
We’ll celebrate Water Baptism on Sunday, February 25th in both services.  If you are a follower of Jesus and haven’t yet publicly made this profession of faith, we invite you to learn more about this important practice of the church.
Let us know you’re interested by clicking here and filling out the water baptism form.  A member of the water baptism team will follow up with you.

Hello CIL family!
I am so excited that my long-time mentor and pastor will be speaking this Sunday at CIL.   John McKinzie is the senior pastor of Hope Fellowship in Frisco, Texas – one of the fastest growing churches in America (read his full bio below).  He is one of my closest friends in the world, and a great guy. He will be speaking at 9am and 10:45am on Sunday, February 11th.
You will love John’s pastoral heart as he shares God’s word with us.  Come expecting God do great things in our services.
John McKinzie Bio
John McKinzie has been in full-time pastoral ministry for more than 31 years. He is the Lead Pastor of Hope Fellowship located in Frisco, Texas. In the 18 years of its existence, the church has consistently grown-now ministering to over 6000 people each week across three campuses.
While serving as a youth pastor at a church in Nashville, God began to create a desire in his heart to plant a new church in Frisco, Texas. Hope Fellowship was founded in January 2000. There were 52 people in attendance at their first meeting which took place at Hillcrest Day School.
God has consistently grown the church, and because of John’s visionary leadership, the people of Hope Fellowship have become a group of believers striving to impact their local community and the world with the love of Jesus. The phrase that’s heard the most around Hope is “If lost people matter to God, then they should matter to us!”
