5 Things to Know This Week at Celebration + Prayers – July 26

Related image1. MORE HOMEWORK!  – This past Sunday at the end of the sermon, Pastor Matt gave the homework to 1) BUILD up 2 people with your words or actions and 2) attempt to BRIDGE a broken relationship by reaching out with a call, letter, or meeting.  (BTW, the best way to start is with the words “I’m sorry…”)  This Sunday we will ask people to give a report about how it went.  Be ready!

2. 5TH SUNDAY WORSHIP – July 30th is the 5th Sunday of the month.  The plan is to have the Oasis children worship with their parents the entire morning.  This gives both teachers and children a break.  We will have “Busy Bags” available if your child needs them.  We will also have a special time for the children during the service.

3. WEDNESDAY WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY UPDATE – We be on vacation until August 23rd.  We will start a new study, “THE BROKEN WAY” by Ann Voskamp.  Take a look at this short video summery of the study.  Please consider joining us.  You will be blessed! For questions or to order a study guide, contact Sandy Hazelmeyer 231-557-7341  or Deb Mart 616-516-3414
4. ICE CREAM SOCIAL –Tuesday, August 1st, from 7:00-9:00 at the McGraft Park Bandshell. The Glenside Neighborhood is hosting this event which is FREE. The band playing that night is “Uneven Ground”, an Irish band that has a big following in the Grand Haven area.  They will be recording their performance LIVE that evening!
5. WEEKLY EMAILWe are looking for better (easier) ways to send out the weekly email.  So, we started using a WordPress blog site which will hopefully accomplish this.  If you get an email request to join the blog, this will be for the weekly email.
