SOWING SEEDS OF GRATITUDE
“Praise the LORD.Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.” Psalm 106:1
As we approach the task of creating a new budget for 2017, the leadership team would like to envision new ways of supporting this growth. We will be meeting to dream, pray, and vision together. During the month of October, regular attenders will have the opportunity to pledge what they are able to give to the life and ministry of Southpoint during 2017. These pledges will be anonymous. Be on the look out for your pledge envelopes this Sunday. ??As a growing church with a part-time pastor, every small act of service and love is felt and valued! If you are new to our church community and would like to deepen your involvement through giving and serving, please talk to Anne. She will be happy to help you find a fit that is right for you.
UP AND COMING….
- “The Compassion Experience”
Friday, November 4 @ Northview Community Church
While we’d particularly like to include our Southpoint Sapling and Youth groups, this outing is open to all. Interested? Please contact Jen for further information and carpooling arrangements.
Hands-on experience is often the best way to understand something new–but we can’t always travel to learn about another culture. The Compassion Experience invites us to visit another world without leaving ours!? ?Friday, Nov 4, our Saplings and 13+ small group will journey to Kenya (and beyond) through the Compassion Experience at Northview Church in Abbotsford.? ?You can find further info at https://cts.compassion.com/events/440. We hope you’ll think about joining us.
