Announcements, 2.27.13

This week’s sermon text: This Sunday Erik will continue our series on the life of David with a sermon on 1 Samuel 17:1-58. We invite you to read ahead to help prepare yourself for this week’s sermon. **COMING UP THIS WEEK**

Prayer tomorrow: Please join members of City Church’s leadership and staff to prayfor City Church tomorrow, February 28th, from 7am-8am at the church office (1520 W. Main Street, Suite 105).

Faith & Finances: Financial stewardship is an important, but easily overlooked topic for the church and for individual believers. On Saturday, March 2nd (9:30-11am), City Church will host an interactive workshop designed to help you explore financial-related questions like: Why is money important to God? How does God want us to use our money? The discussion will explore what Scripture has to say about money and how our faith impacts our financial decisions. We will meet in The Edgeworth Building, 2100 East Cary Street, Suite 201, Richmond, VA 23223. Please contact Glenn Nunziata (glenn.nunziata@ey.com) or Andrew Bleckley (ableckley@gmail.com) if you’re interested in coming or have questions.

City Church Banquet: The 2nd Annual City Church Banquet will take place on Sunday, March 17th in the Beth Ahabah Auditorium, immediately following our regular service. All are welcome to join us for this semi-formal, catered event when we will share a meal and celebrate all that God has done for and through our churchover the last year. For more information on this event--and to RSVP--click this link.

"Heaven's Fruits from Earth's Broken Soil": When you get a moment, please head over to the City Church website to read this post from Anne Taylor Robertson (a soon-to-be member of City Church) on the importance of community in our commitment to grow towards Christ.

Celebrating Leah and Baby Eldridge: The women of City Church are invited to join us at 7:30pm on Saturday, March 16th at Val Catrow's house to eat, chat, and spend time with Leah before the newest addition to the Eldridge family arrives in May. Leah has not registered since they already have most of what they'll need, barring a few larger items. If you are still interested in giving a gift, feel free to contribute toward a group gift or purchase a gift card (Target, Amazon, Cotton Babies). To RSVP and/or to let the hostesses know that you'd like to go in on a larger gift, please contact Jennifer Murphy at jennifer.c.murphy@gmail.com.

Good Friday Service: On Good Friday (March 29th), City Church is holding aservice together with our sister church, Northside Church of Richmond. The servicewill take place at 7pm at their location: Battery Park Christian Church at 4201 Brook Road.

Meals for New Parents: City Church is currently providing meals for three families who've welcomed new babies over the last few weeks -- the Fishers (Clarabelle, born February 6th); the Keltonics (Kade, born February 9th); and the Hadens (Chapin, born February 19th). If you're interested in serving these families in this way, please visit takethemameal.com to sign up. The log-in and password for each meal calendar is the family's last name.

Interesting in continuing to work for the Common Good? Back in January, City Church helped with CommonGoodRVA, a two-day conference focused on helping Christians exercise vocational stewardship for the common good of Richmond. If you’re interested in helping to organize and take part in other events like CommonGoodRVA, please contact Erik (erik@citychurchrva.com) for details.
