Sunday to Sunday – Lenten Sermon Series

Dear Church Family,

As you know, we kicked-off a new preaching series in worship last weekend titled Sunday to Sunday. Since I’ve been at Community of Faith over the past 4 years, it’s been my custom to preach through a series of sermons during Lent focusing on the life of Jesus. This year is no different! What we are doing in this series is taking a closer look at the very last week of Jesus’ life on earth-from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday. This weekend’s sermon is going to focus on the events of Holy Monday, when Jesus cursed the fig tree and cleansed the Jerusalem Temple (Mark 11:11-19). That said, I hope you’ll join us for what’s sure to be an inspiring weekend of worship.

I also want to let you know about a few other things.

First, Coffee with the Pastor (which had been suspended for well over a year) begins again this coming Wednesday (March 20th)! You’re invited to join me at the Starbucks on Cagan View Road in Clermont every Wednesday evening from 5:00-6:15 p.m. for coffee and informal conversation.

Second, we need candy and volunteers for our Community of Faith Easter Egg Hunt! The Easter Egg Hunt is set for April 13th , and we’re in desperate need of both candy and volunteers. So please, please make sure to bring a bag (or 2 or 3 or 4) of candy when you come to worship this weekend and then sign up to volunteer at the information table. In our most recent Midweek Reflection, Kimi Lloyd shared that she and her family began attending Community of Faith because of the Easter Egg Hunt, so there is no question that this is an event that God uses to lead families to our church.

Third, Coalition for the Homeless is on Friday, March 29th. Every 5th Friday our church has the opportunity to feed the homeless in downtown Orlando.  If you’re interested in helping out, you’ll hear details about how to do so in worship this weekend.

Finally, as part of our services this weekend, we’re going to hear an important word from our Staff-Parish Relations Committee Chairperson, Ami Sinibaldi. So please make sure to keep your ears peeled for Ami’s announcement! 

I invite you to scan the rest of this email to get a better picture as to what is happening in the life of our church.

See you this weekend!

Blessings,

Chris
