October 22, 2015

Hello Everyone! 

The Ground Has Been Broken! We had a fantastic groundbreaking service last Sunday. You have probably seen the many pictures from Facebook of families writing their names and Scripture and/or prayers on bricks to be placed in the building. If you missed the service, you and your family can still write your names on bricks this Sunday. We have plenty of bricks and markers for you. This week one of the contractors removed several trees on top of the hill where a drainage berm will be located. By Sunday we will have construction fences in place to mark off the staging area and construction site. We don't want any of our members or guests to wander into the area and get hurt. We will be seeing a lot more activity in a couple of weeks. 

Trunk or Treat is This Sunday from 4:30 - 6:00 p.m. We are anticipating another record crowd this year. North Point Christian Church has graciously offered to let us park cars in at their site at the corner of Bannerman and Bull Headley. We have hired Mike's Limousine Service to provide shuttle service to and from the satellite parking at North Point. We encourage our members to park there to make room for the hundreds of guests who will be attending. Trunk or Treat is our second biggest outreach event of the year and perhaps the best opportunity to meet and greet unchurched people on our church property. Here are some things you can do to maximize the impact of the event for the gospel:
  • Pray for God to lead unchurched families to attend.
  • Come early and park in the satellite parking lot unless your vehicle is part of a "trunk."
  • Wear your church name tag.
  • Smile and welcome guests and thank them for coming.
  • If you have conversations with people, ask if they attend church here in town. If they are unchurched, invite them to come next Sunday. 
This Sunday I will be teaching about how to instill faith in your children. Several times in the book of Acts we see entire households coming to faith in Christ and being baptized. That's significant. I want to talk about what we can do to instill faith in our children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews. This Sunday I will be interviewing a missionary from Kenya, and we will announce the kickoff of a new home team for couples. It's going to be another great Sunday at Canopy Roads. 

All In for Him,
Matt Hall

  1. Easy when the farmer is prepared. Portable fence panels erected and portable brightly coloured blinds leave no doubt for the bird as to which is the right direchain link fence installation
