Easter egg hunt candy donations needed

Dear Church Family,

This weekend Justin Moore is out of town, so we’re privileged to welcome Joel (pronounced Jo-el) Mota as our guest worship leader. Joel attends Discovery Church in Orlando where he also volunteers in the worship band. Joel will be leading us from guitar at both of our contemporary services this weekend. I trust you will give Joel a very warm welcome as he shares his gifts with us. 

We’ll also be continuing our current series, Sunday to Sunday, in which we are focusing on the last week of Jesus’ life on earth. Our passage will be Mark 14:3-11, where the gospel writer tells us about a woman who anoints Jesus, and Judas’ decision betray Jesus. As my sermon title suggests, this passage involves a contrast of biblical proportions that’s definitely worth exploring. By the way, I’m also going to be baptizing one of our youth at our 10:30 AM service, so it’s going to be a great weekend. 

I’ve got a few other important things to share with you before I sign off on this email.

First, TODAY (Friday) IS COALITION FOR THE HOMELESS! If you’re interested in helping us feed the homeless in downtown Orlando tonight, make sure to join us at 3:00 p.m. at the Publix parking lot at Berry Town Center. We’ll carpool over together and then prepare and serve the meal.

Second, our candy donations for the upcoming Easter Egg Hunt is down from where it needs to be. That said, please bring at least 1 bag of individually wrapped candies when you come to worship this weekend. The Easter Egg Hunt is only 2 weeks away, which means this weekend and next weekend will be our last opportunities to donate. Thank you so much for your donations! 

Third, our next new membership class is scheduled for Monday, April 8th at 6:30 p.m. If you’re somebody who’s not yet a member of Community of Faith and you’re interested in church membership, make sure to attend the class. You can let us know of your plans to attend by filling out a Connect Card in worship this weekend and indicating on there that you’re interested in membership. Make sure to drop off the Connect Card in one of our 2 Joy Boxes (Woohoo!)

That’s all for now. Check out the rest of this email to see what else is happening at Community of Faith.

See you this weekend!

Blessings,
Chris
