VISION MONTH!
If you have been at Family Church this month, you know that fresh VISION has been our focus. Through powerful WEEKEND SERVICES, GROWTH TRACK adventures, building community through SMALL GROUPS, and making a difference through the DREAM TEAMS we are preparing for the incredible harvest that is ripe.

If you have missed even one Sunday this month, you will want to visit our MEDIA page to listen to the sermon and download accompanying materials.

FAMILY DEDICATIONS
Dedications aren’t just for babies. Whether you never had the opportunity to dedicate your children or your family to the Lord or you would like to re-commit to lead your family to grow in the Lord, we want to join with you and pray a blessing over you as you declare this fresh commitment. We will also give you tools to lead your family. Contact us to schedule your Family Dedication.

CHOSEN!!! We’re excited about our “MOVE” youth retreat at Redemption Ranch on Friday, September 8—Saturday, September 9th! REGISTRATION WILL CLOSE SOON, so scurry on over to familychurch.net and get registered.


SmallGroups_ANN.jpg

SMALL GROUPS
Small groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why Small Groups exist – to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.

SMALL GROUP/DREAM TEAM FAIR
On Sunday, September 24th, Family Church will be hosting an exciting Small Group/Dream Team fair! This will give you an opportunity to meet Dream Team and Small Group leaders and sign up to make a difference and grow stronger and in community with others!

LEAD A SMALL GROUP
Sign up to LEAD A SMALL GROUP. It’s easier than you think!

1) Choose something you like to do/or are already doing. (Eating, hiking, Bible study, recreation, Mom’s group, etc.) Visit familychurch.net/smallgroups for even more ideas!)

2) Choose a day/time/place for your gathering. (weekly/bi-weekly is preferred for maximum growth)

3) Register your group at familychurch.net/smallgroups .

4) Invite people to join you! (People you are already influencing – friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, etc.)

In Small Groups, we grow stronger, together!


Mark16,16_Baptism_ANN2.jpg

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!!

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!
