Announcements for the Week of March 6, 2016

CIA’s (Children in Action) 

Everyone is invited to a church wide covered dish meal March 20th immediately following Sunday service. Please bring your favorite covered dish to share and join us. The children’s department will host an Easter egg hunt after the meal. All children ages 10 and under are welcome to bring a basket and join the hunt!

Youth and Kids Back Yard Bible Study will be March 9. We will leave the church promptly at 6 pm for Jones Circle and return by 7:15.

Everyone is invited to Taylor Auditorium Thursday March 10 at 6pm for CSP’s annual Pizzazz Talent and Art show! This great night for our special needs community! And it’s free!

CIA’s action project for the month of March is to assemble ready to go packs for the homeless. Needs: bottles of water, wipes, non-perishable snacks, and maybe fast food gift cards. CIA’s will add an encouraging card to each bag and will keep these in their parents car so they can be given out when they see a homeless person. If you would like one of these bags for your own car, please see one of our CIAs. Donated items can be placed in the bin in the children’s department.
