NEW NEWS OR SPECIAL EVENTS:
We are continuing to explore the early church of the New Testament as it relates to Pentecostal fire. We will talk about what changed within the church and how God used men and women in the church to do life-changing works. We will examine both the power and purpose of Pentecost along with its promise. We will also consider the unity and |diversity in the Pentecostal movement, how the Church became a place of fellowship and family, and how Pentecost changed the world forever and is changing people around the globe still today.
Pontiac Church Update
Thank you for helping with the Pontiac church offering. To date, we have raised over $800 toward this worthwhile project. The work needed on the parsonage is extensive with estimates running $20,000+ for materials. If you would like to contribute to this need, we are continuing to receive offerings for this need through the 2nd week of June. Just mark your check or envelope with the name Pontiac. Our goal for this project is $1,500. Please keep Kris and Kathleen Wattelet in prayers as God uses them to dig out the church in Pontiac.
New Bible Study
Check out our upcoming mid-week study on “What on Earth Am I Here For?” We will be taking a journey through Rick Warren’s book bearing the same name. This six-week class will start on July 10 and will meet around the lunch hour, with food included. Please check out the table next Sunday for sign-up and more information. This will be a great time of faith, food, and fellowship. Hope you can join us.
SOME OF OUR MINISTRIES:
Our nursery is more than a babysitting room. The gospel is taught to the children in an age appropriate way through stories and songs. It is located down the long hallway and is available for children from birth—5 years. You can bring your child back anytime after 9:30 a.m. (The cry room is also available for those who would like to stay with their child.)
Pastor will pray for and dismiss the children to go to Children’s Church after the praise and worship part of the service. Children's Church is for children beginning at age 4 years.
Weekly Prayer Meeting
The church doors are open every Monday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. for you to come and pray at your own pace and in your own way. Prayer requests can be placed in the prayer box located at the front of the platform. These requests will be kept in the prayer box for six weeks. Remember, if you want your request or praise report printed in the bulletin you HAVE to sign your name and check the “yes” box.
Praying for the Lost
Don’t forget to pray for salvation for the names posted on the “Prayer Wall” in the foyer. If you have someone you would like the church to help you pray for their salvation, write their first name only and place it on the board.
Feeding the Homeless
We are scheduled to provide lunches for the homeless on the 2nd and 4th Mondays. We usually make these lunches on Sundays after the morning worship services. The next date is June 9.
Holy Grounds Café
This ministry encourages fellowship as we have refreshments such as coffee, danishes, etc. We meet every Sunday morning in the church cafe, beginning at 9:00 and ending at 10:20, just before our morning worship service.
Men, join us for our next monthly Men’s Breakfast, Sunday, June 2, at 7:30 a.m. Bring a friend with you.
This group, for ages 50 and up, meets monthly, normally, on the 2nd Saturday of the month. Typically, one month we meet at the church for a potluck dinner, and the next month we meet for an outing and/or meet at a restaurant. Our next meeting is Saturday, July 13. Weather permitting, this will be a cookout. For more information see Mike or Penny Stawski.
Prayer Requests/Praise Reports
We understand that not everyone wants to have their prayer request
printed in the bulletin. Therefore, we will usually only publish your
request if it is written out, you have signed your name, and have checked the “yes” box on the prayer request form in the printed bulletin (or have indicated such through digital means).
These requests will only be listed for six weeks. PLEASE update your request if you would like it to remain longer.
