At Fellowship                                                                                  

Fellowship Grand Opening  | Sunday, August 18 | Both Services
Fellowship, invite your co-workers, neighbors, and friends for 
Fellowship’s Grand Opening, Sunday, August 18th. We will have our 
normal Sunday services, but with the addition of fun, food, and fellowship after. We are celebrating by swinging the doors wide open to our community and inviting them to check out and be part of what God is doing here at Fellowship! More details to come!

Allow us to pray with you and for you!
Each Sunday, look for the prayer team members and elders who will be available during the last 2 songs following the message.   They will be stationed under the words HOPE and LOVE ready to hear whatever is on your heart and going on in your life.  Another way we would love to connect with you is with our Connection Card.  Fill out the Connection Card with your prayer/praise and drop it in the offering basket or the offering box located at the main worship center entrance.  If you would like to have your prayer shared with the Prayer Team, please check the box at the bottom of the tear off section.

GO Czech 2019 June 24 – July 9
Both Czech Teams are currently running English camps and building relationships with students. The bond between believers speaks volumes about the difference in someone who follows Christ and those who do not know Him. Please pray for unity on the teams and with the Czech partnering churches. Also, be praying for relational connections that the Lord uses to bring about salvation through the gospel. 

Home Church Launching  | Week of August 25
We are created for relationships – a relationship with our Creator and those He created. As disciples of Jesus we are to grow those relationships, encourage one another, and do life with other believers while reaching out to those not in the Family. Home Church, Fellowship’s small group ministry, is where this happens. Through weekly prayer, study, and consistent community, we see our body connecting, growing, and serving. Most Home Churches meet Sunday or Wednesday night, so mark your calendar now to prioritize relationships that will help fuel your spiritual growth. To make our groups accessible for everyone, childcare is available for kids Birth-4th grade for a flat fee of $35 per month (increased due to minimum wage going up).

Fellowship Equipping Classes Coming Fall 2019
Fellowship’s mission is to invite people to enter God’s story, equipping and releasing them to become reproducing disciples of Jesus Christ.  As a church who takes the mission to equip our body seriously, we are excited to announce an opportunity to further invest in your growth.  This fall we will be launching an Equipping Ministry that will include courses in marriage, parenting, finances, Bible study, prayer, apologetics and many others.  These will be multi-week courses where you can invest in your spiritual health as you continue in your faith journey. Information will be coming soon with all the details you need to register for a Fall or Spring course.
