On Saturday, November 12, we will be having our SERVE OUR CITY Day in the communities surrounding our Celebration Campuses. We would love for you to join us as we reach out to help schools, ministries, single moms, the elderly and hurting people in our region in a variety of ways. You can invite your friends, family members, co-workers, schoolmates and neighbors to join in with us. You can find out more about what your Celebration Congregation has planned for SERVE OUR CITY Day by conversing with your Campus Staff. And you can order your SERVE OUR CITY t-shirt by clicking here. The cost of the t-shirt will be used to subsidize some of the projects that we will be working on.
Also, in November, we will begin receiving our annual EVERYONE NEEDS JESUS Christmas/Missions offering. This is an offering that goes directly to support local, national, and international missionaries, missions ministries, and missions projects. And we ask our people to contribute this offering over and above their regular Celebration Church gifts. We’ll share more with you in the coming weeks about our planned recipients for the EVERYONE NEEDS JESUS Christmas/Missions offering. In the meantime, please be praying that the Lord will bless our people financially, and they, in turn, will give generously to this special annual offering that goes to support missionaries, missions ministries and missions projects.
Finally, let me ask you to be praying for our upcoming regional, state and national elections that will take place on November 8. We are facing many great challenges in our region, state and nation. Some of those challenges are economic challenges, while other challenges are related to criminal, housing, justice, moral, poverty and security issues.
In light of all of these challenges that are being faced by people in our region, state and nation, we need to see the best and most godly of leaders rise to the forefront in every sector of leadership. So I ask that you would join me and our Pastors in fasting and praying on Monday, November 7 during the morning and afternoon hours, as we pray for election candidates and election results in our region, state and nation.
We love you at Celebration Church. Please let us know how we can pray for you or be of assistance to you and/or to others.
