BACK TO SCHOOL FAIR

Each year, our church hosts a booth and gives away glue sticks and treats to hundreds of children in our school district. You can help by collecting glue sticks and serving at the booth! We'll also be distributing lollipops and bottles of water - huge hit last year! It's a great time to share school supplies, and meet people from our community and invite them to Family Church.

HERE'S HOW YOU CAN HELP!

1) Please bring your glue sticks donations to church this Sunday (7/23) or Sunday (07/30). There are collection buckets by the StoreHouse.

2) If you would prefer to give and let someone else shop, you can put your designated gift in an offering envelope and select the "City Care" option. You can always give online here too! https://www.familychurch.net/give/

3) Choose a time slot to be a booth host! The sign-up sheet is at the Welcome Center.

Thanks so much for helping our community in this important way! It is a huge blessing!!


HAVE YOU DECIDED?
Making the decision to turn from the world and follow Jesus is the single most important decision you will ever make! It literally changes your eternity! Acts 2:38-39 (MSG) says this: 
Peter said, “Change your life. Turn to God and be baptized, each of you, in the name of Jesus Christ, so your sins are forgiven. Receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is targeted to you and your children, but also to all who are far away—whomever, in fact, our Master God invites.”

When we make the decision to follow Jesus, we die to our old life and let God raise us up into a NEW life with Him! He promises to fill us with His Spirit (Acts 2) and we are empowered to do the things that He desires as we grow in relationship with Him! Let today be the day that you decide to take the plunge to wear His name through water baptism! It doesn’t get any more exciting than this!!


GIVING
Make a difference through your giving. Everything we do is made possible through your prayer and generosity. Thank you for worshiping through giving!  

Missing a service?  You can still be faithful in giving! Here's how you can help! If you’re not going to be at service, check out options 2 and 3 for giving! Invest in the amazing ministries happening weekly at Family Church!  There is no better investment that you can make than helping people find God and grow closer to Him!  Missed service?  Giving is easier than ever. 

3 EASY WAYS TO GIVE!
1  Give at offering time with an envelope!
2  Give recurring donations, online at www.familychurch.net, or through your bank account!
3  Mail your offering to 1586 Duello Road, Lake Saint Louis, Missouri, 63367.
However you choose to give, you are supporting the work of God in our community! Your giving furthers the good news of hope in Jesus!  As we sow, we will grow!


FOCUSED PRAYER
God, the Creator of the universe is concerned with every detail of our lives.  Each Friday evening at 7:00 p.m. at Family Church, a devoted prayer team gathers to focus on God and bring needs to Him. We would love for you and your family to join us! Thank you for joining with us to pray for these needs! 
·        Pray that people will recognize their need for salvation, repent, be baptized, and receive God’s Spirit.
·        Healing for Jeremy's father, Rachael's grandmother, Rose, Mila Kate, Tommy, and our friend and fellow church planter, Todd Gaddy
·        Salvation for friends and loved ones and friends we have not yet met in our community!
·        Pray for Missionaries and Church Planters: The Gaddy, Shalm, Reed & Burton families
