For the last nine years the people of CIL have provided backpacks full of school supplies to area elementary, middle school, and high school students. This will be our 10 Year Anniversary of this outreach!  We thank God for His help in this!

Over 200 families will be touched by this project. The scope of what we can accomplish is dependent on your generosity!
Gala Johnson’s stewardship and hard work have reduced the cost of each backpack to $20.  How many backpacks can you buy?  One for $20?  Ten for $200?
I am asking you to prayerfully consider how many backpacks you can purchase.  I believe God has called every backpack to have a sponsor so that we can reach more families than ever before.
Sponsor your backpack(s) by choosing “Back-to-School Blessing” from the drop down menu on our giving page.
Thank you for your prayerful consideration of this important outreach.
I love being your Pastor,

If you’re a follower of Christ, you probably agree that reading the Bible, studying scripture, is an important part of being a follower.
Our hearts are created to long for connection to Jesus, to know Him more deeply and to be known by Him.  We want that.  But it’s often not doing the Bible study that stalls us: stalls the growth of our faith, the deepening of our relationship with Jesus (and each other), and keeps us stuck.  Longing. Knowing there’s more. Unsure how to get there.
That’s why we’re partnering with Veritas College to offer the first of their 4-part series on how to study the Bible for yourself.  How to read and understand and apply scripture. This 10-week semester will focus on the basics of understanding what this collection of writings consists of, how we got it, how to read it in the context the writer created it, and how to apply it to our lives today.
I would love for you to join me in this exploration of scripture.  Our cost for each participant is $75, but if that’s difficult for you to swing, we have funding to cover any part of the cost that you can’t.  We want you in this class!
Register at cil.churchcenteronline.com.  You can make your payment online, or bring a check to the first class on Monday, July 24th.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.  I hope to see you on the 24th!
Pastor Deborah
