April 19, 2018

Hey guys!
One of the important characteristics of CIL is our commitment to missions. Jason and Brittany Curtis are ministry partners who receive a monthly check from us to support their important work in the Middle East.
This Sunday, you will have a chance to meet them before 242 Small Groups begin. The Curtis’ will be sharing from 3:45pm to 4:45pm in the Sanctuary. This will be an informal time in which you will be able to ask questions and personally interact with them.
Please, bring your children and teenagers! This is a great chance to expose your children to God’s work on the others side of the world.
To know his love, share his love,

Habitat for Humanity

Want to do something good in Sumner County?  Join us Sunday, April 8th, from 1:00-5:00pm as we help build a Habitat for Humanity home.
Ben Cordray is leading the CIL team and can answer any questions you have about participating.
Water Baptism
The next date for water baptism is Sunday, April 15th, in both services.  This practice of the church is an outward expression of faith; a physical act that marks our identity with, and participation in, the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
If you’d like to learn more, please let us know via this water baptism form. A member of our baptism team will follow up with you.

Special Instructions for this Easter Weekend
Today begins the most special weekend of our year!
On Friday (March 30) we will have our Good Friday service. Beth Allison and the worship team will be including a string quartet to add reverence and beauty to this service of reflection. Childcare will be provided through age four.
Easter Sunday we will have services at 9am & 10:45am. It will be exciting to put out extra chairs, and welcome so many visitors and friends to this worship experience.
Can you do a few things to prepare for Easter?

 

1. Come early.
Last year, we had a 40% increase over our average attendance. We will put out extra chairs, and will be ready to welcome these new friends. You can do your part in preparation by arriving earlier than usual into the sanctuary, which will really help our Welcome Team. Plus, don’t you want to be there for the opening song and the Call to Worship?
2.Invite.
A personal invitation is the number one way to get people into church. If your heart is open, you will identify someone in your life who needs a personal invitation to try out a CIL service. God is preparing an important encounter with a friend that will be facilitated through your invitation.
3. Pray.
Let’s believe God that many people will be impacted by the gospel message on Resurrection Sunday.
One more thing . . .

 

On Thursday (March 29) we will have a Contemplative Prayer for Maundy Thursday(7pm). Please enter on the highway side of the building (the Awana entrance), as the prayer time will be in The Study, not the Sanctuary. Kristin Knaub will be leading this, and no child care is provided.
