Happy Thanksgiving!

 

I pray you are having a joyful time of fellowship and gratitude for all God’s blessings this Thanksgiving weekend.  Our church has so much to be thankful for this year, and I am so blessed to get to lead this great family.

We will have both services this Sunday, starting at 9am and 10:45am.  Aubrey and Jen McGowan will be leading our services on this Family Sunday, so I know their ministry will be a perfect way to end this weekend.

 

May the Lord bless you and keep you!

Community Investment Week!

This is a huge week at CIL to invest into our community through giving and volunteer hours.

 

Operation Christmas Child THIS WEEK!

 

 

You can share the love of Christ with children around the world through Operation Christmas Child.  Pack a shoebox with Christmas gifts and drop it off November 13th – 20th (CIL is an official collection site).  OCC adds a booklet with the gospel message and delivers the boxes around the world.  In the hands of local churches, they become powerful tools for evangelism and discipleship.

If you want to volunteer, we still have time slots available for volunteers to receive gift boxes as they’re dropped off.  Let us know if you can help.

 

 

 

 

Thanksgiving Blessing 

 

Saturday, November 18 is our Thanksgiving Blessing! Our goal is to give away 185 fresh turkeys and all the ingredients for a family Thanksgiving meal for local families. Your gift of $25 will completely fund Thanksgiving dinner for someone who might be unable to provide that special meal without help.  We currently have 82 sponsored. Will you take time to donate right now by clicking here, so we can fund all 185 meals.

The assembly team will gather on Friday evening, November 17 at 6:30pm to prepare the bags.  Volunteer sign-in on Saturday morning is at 8:30, with the give-away beginning at 9a.m. in the parking lot at the Goodwill Store on New Shackle Island Road. If you want to volunteer for Friday night packing or Saturday morning distribution, contact Gala Johnson at 615-440-6127.

I am sending my e-mail early this week because there are several important opportunities I want you to be aware of and to have time to respond.

 

 

 

#1 Water Baptism this Sunday

 

We are having water baptisms this Sunday (November 12)!  Water baptism is a spiritual act that God asks of every believer.

 

If you want to be baptized this Sunday at CIL click here.

 

If you have any questions about this, please feel free to e-mail, text or call me.  I would love for you to make this step of obedience this Sunday in either of our services.

 

#2 Veterans Recognition

 

In honor of Veteran’s Day on November 11, CIL will recognize all veterans during service on Sunday, November 12.  You do not need to let us know about veterans present in advance, as we will ask all veterans present to stand when their branch is recognized.
