We will have a church-wide Serve Day on Saturday, July 27. We will have the opportunity to serve two homes. Both recipients are elderly men (widowers) living alone in Horn Lake. We have plenty of work to do. Skilled labor will be replacing trim, window screens, a storm door, and a ceiling. Everyone else will be painting the exterior and doing yard work. Children under 16 will need the direct supervision of a parent. Use this link to register.

Starting Sunday, August 4, Jessie will be leading Children’s Catechism every Sunday during fellowship time, between 10:10-10:25. Children K-5th are invited to come early, grab a treat, and meet in the bay 1 classroom. Younger children are also welcome to attend with a parent.

Beginning August 4, the deacons will begin collecting a monthly offering during worship on communion Sundays for the Deacon’s Fund. 100% of these offerings will be used to assist families in our church and local community with emergency needs.

Family Night will return Wednesdays beginning August 14 at 6:00pm. We will enjoy food, fellowship, games, and teaching for adults, youth, and children. Nursery will also be available weekly! A catered meal will be available for a cost and with prior registration. You are also welcome to bring your own food.

Luke Rogers is home recovering from a second back surgery. We would like to provide some meals for Luke and Anna. Use this link to sign-up.

We now have a Church Calendar! You can access it on the website or add it to your calendar app. Let Mike know if you need help.

We will have a Congregational Meeting on Sunday, August 11 following worship to review the budget.

Parents of 6th-12th grade students will have a Parent Meeting on Sunday, August 18 following worship to learn about upcoming trips and fundraisers.

Join us every Sunday at 10:00am for Coffee & Treats in Bay 5! If you would like to volunteer to bring treats and help host, use this link.

In an effort to help us commit to regular Bible reading, I have added our church profile to YouVersion (the Bible app). Download the app, tap Discover, search for Christ Fellowship, and tap “Set as My Church”. Or use this link.

We provide a Weekly Devotional using the sermon manuscript: (www.cfpca.org/devotional) We also have a Book Table! Prices are suggested donations.

Our elders feel called to help plant a new church in Southaven. Specifically, we are praying for an African-American church planter. This work is in the very early stages. Please pray for God to send the right man to lead it!

To better serve Desoto County, we created a brief Gift Survey. Help us do our job “to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ…” (Ephesians 4:12) (www.cfpca.org/serve)

Giving to the church is an act of worship. “Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” (2 Cor. 9:7) If you are committed to this church and would like to support the ministry financially, there’s an offering box on the entry table. You may also give online (www.cfpca.org/give) or text any dollar amount to: 84321
