Men’s Connection July 28th

Every Servant a Leader

Every man is called to be a kingdom leader … to use his influence for good and the Gospel.  In the kingdom of God, just as every man is a leader … so every leader is a servant. Come … find out what that means for you … discuss and explore this with other men … and pray with each other.  As always, there will be a light breakfast served.


Student Pie Night & Hymn Sing

Something new this year!  Instead of the familiar Spaghetti Dinner where we voted on sauces, students shared about their summer trips, and we sang favorite hymns, we have

 

STUDENT PIE NIGHT
and HYMN SING

August 12 at 5:30pm

 

Students will still share about trips, we will still sing your favorite hymns but we will eat pies – Savory pies like chicken pot pie, shepherd’s pie, pizza pie, quiche, etc. and Sweet pies like apple, pumpkin, cherry, peach, pecan, chocolate, banana cream, etc.

 

If you would like to bring a pie – either homemade or purchased, sign up at the table by the well or contact
Paul Bialek at pbialek@tiu.edu or 847-945-9268.

 

You also have an opportunity to vote with money for who gets a whipped cream pie in the face so bring your money too! 
All money given will go towards future student trips.

 

 



Youth Sunday June 10th

What’s happening this Sunday?
 
This Sunday, June 10th, will be “Youth Sunday.” Students played a significant role in planning this week’s service. You will see:
 
– Students leading worship
– Students helping with tech
– Students reading scripture
– Students serving as ushers
– A recognition of graduates
 
Why are students so involved in this week’s service?
 
Our students are playing a front-and-center role this week as we prepare to send them off on several summer trips. The High School students are going on their Challenge and Light Rider trips; the Junior High students are going to the Twin Cities on their BUMP trip.
 
This is the final leg of their fundraising journey to make those trips a reality. In order to help their trips get fully funded, this final fundraising opportunity will include:
 
– A freewill offering during this Sunday’s service
– YOUTHWORKS, in which students sign up to take on jobs for members of the congregation in exchange for donations to summer trips
 
How can I help?
 
Thank you for your contributions to the 2018 student trips up to this point; the pancake breakfast and women’s event blessed our students mightily! We are already $5000 toward our $7000 fundraising goal. Since this is our last fundraising event before the 2018 trips, we are looking to raise $2000 this Sunday. There are two ways you can help us make the push for the final $2000 this Sunday:
 
– Bring money or a check to contribute to Sunday’s freewill offering. That freewill offering will go to the scholarship fund, which benefits scholarship needs in the church (including student trips).
– See a student in the foyer after the service to see what help they are offering through YOUTHWORKS. Consider signing up to have a high school student mow your lawn, clean your gutters, teach your kid guitar, etc.
 
Thank you!
 
Thank you for your love and support for our students, who pour out so much to bless the rest of us in the congregation. Let’s make the most of this opportunity to bless them back.


Men’s Connection

Beginning on Saturday, June 23rd, Pastor Craig with Neal Siegel will be leading a ministry for men from 7:30 to 9:00 am. Men of all ages from North Sub, Adat Hatikvah, friends, and neighbors are welcome.

As men, we tend to find ourselves alone. We weren’t meant to be alone. We were meant to be in community with others… especially other men. As men, we need the strength, support, encouragement, and prodding of other men so that we can live our lives fully in the Lord. The vision of the MEN’S CONNECTION is that NO MAN STANDS ALONE. Our mission is DISCIPLING, MENTORING, and SERVING.

The Men’s Connection will meet in the Club 45 Room downstairs on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month. A light breakfast and coffee will be served. Each meeting will feature a brief devotional time followed by a time of connecting in the Word, discussion, and prayer together.

This Saturday devotional and discussion time begins with the first of a 5-part series entitled, “Leading Well.” As men, we’ll look together at what it means to be called by God to be kingdom leaders.

 
If you have questions, please call the office, contact Pastor Craig (North Sub) and/or Neal Siegel (Adat).
