(Two!) Operation Christmas Child Packing Parties
The time is here! It's time to put a year's worth of working, shopping, and crafting into a box! Join us on one or both of 2 packing dates. It is a great time together, and is wonderful to watch all those Gospel Opportunities stack up!
Thursday, Nov. 1st at 6:00 pm Come ready to work! Water bottles and some snacks will be available, but we need to get the first 700 boxes for ages 10-14 packed that evening!
Saturday, Nov. 3rd at 10:00 am More of our children will be available to pack at this time and they will need adults to help them through the lines! We plan to pack an additional 300 boxes this morning, and will also need to reset the sanctuary when we are finished.
Matthew for Everyone Study Wednesdays at 7pm
You are invited to join us every Wednesday, March 8 - April 12, 7:00 - 8:15pm, to study the Gospel of Matthew. We will take as our guide the readings as listed in “Matthew for Everyone” reading plan found on bible.com as “Lent for Everyone, Year A”, by N. T. Wright.

Operation Christmas Child Packing Party

What is “COVENANT COMMUNITY BIBLE EXPERIENCE”?
Read big. Read real. Read together.
The Evangelical Covenant Church is excited to announce a Covenant-wide effort launching in 2016 to be “People of the Book” together! Our denomination is encouraging us to join an unforgettable journey–to reignite our passion for the Scriptures. Sponsored by Make and Deepen Disciples (formerly the departments of Evangelism and Christian Formation).
Community Bible Experience is a different way to read the Bible: less like a reference book, more like a story. It’s a new way to talk about the Bible, too: less like a Bible study, more like a book club.
Christchurch will come together for this experience for 8 weeks this fall, starting the week of September 25th.
Are you ready? More info is on its way soon.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6–7)
