MID-WEEK BIBLE STUDY RETURNS:
Mid-Week Bible Study takes place on Wednesday evenings from 7-8:15pm. While we will have a time of prayer at the beginning, the focus of the time will be spent in the Word of God. Pastor Mark will be the primary teacher during these weekly sessions. We hope you will value this time and join us.
NEW EPICS CLASS:
We have an exciting new EPICS Class starting on Sunday, May 21, at 9:00am. It is an 8 week class entitled, “Surprise the World.” It is subtitled, “The Five Habits of Highly Missional People.” The class focuses on five things that need to be a part of who we are as Christians and as the church to help others connect with Jesus Christ. Everyone can do these things, and everyone is invited.
We will be having Baptism on Sunday, May 28, during our morning worship service. If you desire to be baptized during this service, please let Pastor Mark Richardson know. This is for anyone who has never been baptized and for those who want to repeat their baptism as a testimony of rededication. There will be a brief orientation session on Saturday, May 27, at 9:30am for all baptism candidates.
Save the Date:
The Diaconate Team and the CWC will sponsor a Garage Sale on Saturday, June 3, 2017 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.

A BOOK FROM ONE OF OUR OWN:
My Book entitled “Perseverance Against All Odds…!” is available for purchase at $19.99. It’s an inspirational reading about my academic journey. It was difficult to write amid all the encounters I faced however, I made it through perseverance as I listened to, responded to, and not question the moving of the Spirit in my heart; God Speaks and whatever he says He will bring it to past. Thank you for your prayers for us. Rev. Sharon Goodwin.
A GREAT OUTREACH MINISTRY:
Our next date is Wednesday, June 21, 2017, from noon – 1:00pm. Our hope is to reach needy people in the area. Please make the effort to support this worthwhile outreach ministry, because we believe that God will open doors in the hearts of those we serve. There are three ways that you can participate if you are available. You can first of all pray for the ministry’s success. Secondly, you can come out and help serve our guests, as we need people to help with this effort. Thirdly, you can contribute to the effort financially.
