Weekly News for June 16th

Construction Phase Set to Begin! We are pleased to announce that we’re finally getting started with our building/renovation project for our campus. The construction process will begin sometime during the week of June 17th during which time there will be limited access to some areas as the crews do prep and you’ll notice construction equipment on our campus. We ask everyone to please be patient during this season of change.  We will all be impacted in some form or fashion but the end result will be a better facility to allow us to do God’s good work here in Kingwood and beyond.  If you have questions, please contact the church office.  

New Worship Times! As a reminder, we’ve recently changed times of our three worship services to 8:15, 9:35(Contemporary) and 11:05am. We will keep this schedule for the rest of the year, during which time our Elders will discern what is best for our worshiping family. We look forward to seeing you at any (or all!) worship services with the new times.

Prayer Time Join us this Sunday afternoon (June 16th), at 4:30 in the Chapel, as we gather to pray for our church. This time will be led by the Spirit focusing on prayers that help make us more like Christ, move us closer to the Kingdom and the truth. We will pray for our church’s future, leadership, and transformation.

Help Mobilize: Peru Mission Donations and Packing

The Peru Mission Team is collecting clothing and supplies, from June 9th through July 17th to take to Peru this year. Donations may be dropped off in the CE Wing in room 112. Please read the following guidelines in regard to the types of supplies we are collecting. If you have any questions, please talk with either Clark McCollough ([email protected]) or Mark Smith ([email protected]).

· Used clothing – Baby and Children’s; Youth, both male and female; and small women’s sizes. Desired items include lightweight jackets and sweaters, hats, shirts, pants, and dresses. Please, no shoes.

· Hygiene Supplies – Individual small travel-sized soap, shampoo, and toothpaste. Also, combs, brushes and toothbrushes are welcome. Please no large sizes. We sort and package donated supplies into quart size Ziploc bags of “hygiene” supplies for distribution at the medical clinics.

· Unwanted used eye glass frames with lenses, especially children sizes. Our in-country volunteer optometrist uses the old lenses as a templet to fit new Rx lenses for patients.

· Light-weight, cloth eye glass cases

The Peru Mission Team will be sorting and packing these supplies and other mission supplies in the CE Wing in rooms 209/212 and 215/219 on July 17th at 6:00pm and invites those interested in helping this mission to join in the effort and fellowship. Thank you for your ongoing support of our church’s mission in Peru.
