“Welcome to our church today, and thanks so much for spending part of your weekend with us! My name’s Cami and we’re gonna get things kicked off here in just a moment with the band coming out to lead us in a few songs. The lyrics will be up on the screens so you can sing along and engage in worship however you feel comfortable. After that, one of our pastors will come out to share a great message. And all in all we’ll be here for just about an hour. If you have kids with you, we wanna let you know that we’ve got fantastic kids programming happening throughout the entire service. It’s safe, it’s secure, and most importantly your kids are gonna have a blast. There’s still time to check them in if you would like to take this time to do so! With all that being said, we’re gonna kick things off here in just a minute. Find your seats if you haven’t already, and we’ll get started shortly.
One thing we truly value is community. And whether today is your first time or we have been your church for years, truly, the best way to get connected with our family and start meeting others is through Groups. These are so much more than quick chats or handshakes at church. Small groups are where you can develop real and lasting friendships that go beyond Sunday morning. To find the group perfect for you, simply find a volunteer on your way out today to take your next step. We’ll see you there!
At this time, I want to invite the hosts to come forward as we give. If you are new with us, don’t feel any obligation to give whatsoever. We’re just so glad you’re here. If you did come prepared to give, there are a number of different ways you can do that. You can place your gift directly in your row in a moment, or you can give via debit or credit card on our website.
If you’re new with us today, we want you to feel at home and know that this is a safe place—and we’re so glad to have you here. For us, church is so much more than just a Sunday service, and we want you to know that there’s a place perfect for you. One of the best ways you can get connected with us is to fill out the card in the seat back in front of you. Take that card out sometime during the worship experience and fill out as much information as you feel comfortable sharing. And then, after the service, take that card to one of our volunteers and we’ll put a small gift in your hands. Just a small token of our appreciation for you being here. And that’s it! Later this week one of our pastors will connect with you. And once again, thanks for being here.
We believe that the next generation is the future of our church and we love providing opportunities for them to connect with God and each other. We have several summer events coming soon in our middle and high school ministries and we’d love to have your student involved. To learn more you can check out our website or head over to our student ministry department.
Every year we love providing engaging opportunities for the elementary age children in our church and community to learn more about God. Each day your children will get to hear from God’s word, learn about ways to make an impact around the world and have a ton of fun. We would love to have your child join us for this event this summer.
Thank you for choosing the Child Like This video series.
We are excited for you to learn more about Child Like This and the ministry of
Central India Christian Mission. This series will introduce young people to the
life changing work happening among the children of India through these videos,
discussion and/or reflection and giving. We encourage these videos to always be
presented in person by a moderator who can properly set up what they are about
to watch. Involving the children is also a good idea – like letting them take pictures
like the Bal Bhavan kids in the 3rd session. We recommend as a team that you meet
before beginning to present this series to determine an offering goal. Then as you
determine, you can remind the students at the closing of each video or following
the 4th session to bring their offerings to the last session in order to allow the
children the opportunity to give as their heart leads. Please feel free to reach out to
our development team for any specific goal items that can help children or to ask
any questions. We appreciate your heart for India and look forward to seeing how
God works through our partnership together
