HOMECOMING SUNDAY TWO WEEKS AWAY
Join us as we celebrate Building the Kingdom with our church family on Sunday, Aug. 29. A meal will follow services and provide time for fellowship with friends – new and old. The main portion of the meal will be provided by the church, but we will need volunteers to provide tortilla chips, desserts and drinks. Please see the needs list within CCB.
If you haven’t responded to the invitation yet, please let us know you are coming by calling the office at (513) 752-9819 or emailing email@example.com. Please reach out to former members and friends as well to let them know we would love to see them.
COMING SOON! MEN’S AND WOMEN’S CLASSES
Beginning September 12 and continuing through October, men’s and women’s classes will be held on alternating Sundays, which we hope will allow more parents to attend. These classes are intended to encourage our spiritual development in ways that we don’t get a chance to normally. Thanks to all who participated in the recent survey to help us figure out the best days and times for the classes. More details coming soon!
GIVING FROM THE HEART
In 2 Corinthians 9:7, we read “Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” Your contributions support God’s work through our church at Withamsville. The contribution box is on the table where you pick up communion. If you prefer, you can also mail your check or donate online through CCB.
If you cannot join us in person this Sunday, please join through our YouTube Livestream.
