Church 100: Healthy Church Matters

August 26th, 2018

Maybe you've been going to church for a long time. Or, maybe you're just getting started, trying to figure out what this thing is all about. And just maybe, you've been let down and hurt by the church, and you need to be reminded why it's still God's "Plan A" for the world!

Wherever you are, we've got you covered.

We're going to talk on the 6 most important topics related to Christian living and the church. At the same time, we'll address some common misconceptions about the Church that may have hindered you from fully experiencing what God has in store for your life!

Message titles include:

  • Pray This Way
  • Hide My Word
  • Enthroned on Praises
  • Into The Storehouse
  • As unto The Lord
  • Do Not Forsake

We know you'll be encouraged and equipped to live on purpose, according to the great and mighty calling God has placed on your life!

$0 - $265

Citizens is going to Rocky Point for our first international mission trip!

We will be having our first informational meeting after church, Sunday August 12th with Mike from 1Mission (the group organizing our trip) If you miss the meeting, no worries, we'll have more leading up to the trip!

For more information regarding the trip, download the participant packet here.

Here are the dates and pricing:

  • The trip dates are Oct 25 - Oct 28
  • Total cost is $265 per person
  • Kids under 12 are free
  • Kids over 12 with a parent are $105
  • Kids over 12 without a parent are the full $265

Lodging Options:

  • Tent sites are free (we will be bringing ours)
  • RV sites are $25
  • Bunkhouse are $15 (this is for the whole time and needs to be reserved directly with 1Mission ASAP as spots are limited. This is probably the most common lodging situation)

Other Details:

  • We will leave Thursday afternoon preferably around noon.
  • Check in time is at 5. This gives you enough time to get settled in and all of us to get dinner in town. It’s the only day food is not provided.
  • An informational meeting is held at 8 that night at 1Mission.

We will wrap up the weekend on Sunday around 2 and head back to Phoenix... or some of you may want to take a side trip to the beach.

While in Mexico, we will be building a house for our assigned family. We will be assigned the family a week before we go. This is great because we will get to find out how many kids they have and names. Our family will be helping us build the house for them, so this is a great opportunity to build a connection with them and bless them with a home. They will also join us Saturday night for the fiesta where we all celebrate and have dinner together.

We will be building the house from start to finish and handing them their keys on Sunday. They do ask that each church that comes brings them a housewarming gift. More ideas on that to come.

Please register and make your deposit as soon as possible!

Next Steps:

  • If you can attend the meeting on August 12, then we'll organize some meetings to prepare and make the most of our trip leading up to October.
  • Join our Facebook page to keep up with news and future planning meetings.

Please email or call me with ANY questions! I can't wait to do this together!

Sincerely,

Jillian and Dereck
