CONFIRMATION ORIENTATION: Tonight at 6:30 p.m. we have our confirmation orientation. If you have a child in either 7th or 8th grade, please make sure you attend to hear the expectations of the program and to pick up material and assignments for next Sunday. Classes will be held on Sunday evening at 5:00 p.m. and last for about an hour.

 

SMALL GROUP ORIENTATION:  If you are a small group leader this year, or interested in becoming one, please attend the orientation session tonight at 7:00 p.m. This year’s material will be the book The Prodigal God by Tim Keller. Leaders will be given study guides. If you cannot make it, please let Pastor know.

 

FIRST MONTH BUDGET REPORT:  Despite the high inflation in our country, the economic instability and the usual downslide in summer giving, God continues to bless the hearts of our members to be generous and sacrificial in their giving! We finished the first month in the black!  Give God thanks and praise!

 

VISION PRAYER:  Once a month, the vision prayer committee will be posting a prayer in the Scroll for its members to use in their prayers for our church’s vision.  This month’s prayer is written by Dean Kasper and prays as follows, “Our Father in heaven, we praise You and humbly come before You in the name of our Redeemer, Jesus Christ, our great High Priest, whose death and resurrection has granted us as believers a direct and personal relationship with You. O Lord God, we ask that You strengthen our faith and encourage our hearts to grow our prayer life, drawing us ever closer to You. Bless Pastor Raebel, our Vision Clarity Team and the entire congregation at CTK, in working together in unity through the Holy Spirit to build Your church in accordance with Your vision, and upon Your Son Jesus Christ as our cornerstone. We heartily seek and need Your guidance and wisdom and pray that as You reveal to us Your vision, that You lead us and direct us on the path on which You would have us go. Through Your divine power and according to Your will Lord, we pray that You work in us and through us, in serving to carry out Your mission, bringing forth Your hope and Your light, by Your unwavering Truth in Word, to community and the world…all to the praise and honor of Your glory and grace. All these things, we ask and pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

I tell you the truth, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. (John 16:23)

 

NOW HIRING- NURSERY WORKER! CTK is looking to hire a loving, dependable individual to use their gifts with children in the nursery on Sunday mornings. If you know of someone that fits that description, please relay any information to Annette Goss.

 

CHILDREN’S CHURCH – We are planning to start our children’s church program back up in September.  Children’s church happens during the sermon in the 10:45 am service for children in preschool – 4th grade.  We are looking for teachers for this program.  All supplies and lesson material are provided, and with a team of teachers, you would hopefully only be teaching once a month! If you are interested in serving, please contact DCE Allison Daniels.
