What an exciting time of year! The first of the year, new beginnings, new opportunities – who knows what God has in store for YOU in the next 12 months? It’s an exciting time at CBCB too:
– We’re about to launch Explore God. Discussion groups are formed, now we all need to get to the “hard part” of inviting people to join a group with us. I’m working up my nerve to invite some of my neighbors, and I’ve given myself a deadline (because it’s TOO easy to find excuses right up until it’s too late). If I don’t have an easy, obvious, comfortable opportunity by THIS weekend, Im knocking on some doors. Make yourself, trick yourself, give yourself a deadline – do whatever it takes. It’s hard, but I keep thinking of how hard it would be to later realize that I SHOULD’VE/COULD’VE/DIDN’T. You can also help get the word out in other creative ways: by putting out yard signs, posters, post cards or sending a video invitation to your contacts. OR utilize social media to “spread the word”. Stop at the table in the lobby this weekend for propaganda materials.
If you are a facilitator – we’ll be having training classes this weekend in Portable #3. Get your questions answered and get ready to roll! Choose the time that works best for you Sat @ 4 pm, or Sun @ 9 am. Hosts are welcome, attenders are welcome – facilitators are STRONGLY encouraged to come.
This Saturday is Tailgate Saturday. Wear your Dallas Cowboys (or heathen team) gear! We are a church that celebrates diversity – but seriously, no NY Giants stuff, OK? After church at 5, we’ll go out in the backyard and eat together, play together and just enjoy the company of some great people (and maybe a couple who aren’t that great). Bounce houses, basketball, horseshoes, red beans and rice – and it’s going to be cold! Should be a blast, but it’s no fun without YOU.
If you are fairly new to CBCB, if you are thinking about possible membership, or if you just want to know a little more about where CBCB has come from, where we are headed, and where you might fit in… Please join us for Connection 101 on Feb 5 at 12:35. Lunch and childcare are provided. Sign up on your connection card this weekend, or reply to this email.
