ALPHA TONIGHT--BRING YOURSELF, BRING A FRIEND

ALPHA.png

Church of the Outer Banks will present an 8 week short course called ALPHA beginning this Thursday, March 21st, followed by a big ALPHA party to wrap things up on the 9th week.. We’ll be gathering at 630p at the Ministry Hub (Church Offices).

The Alpha course has been described as a class which seeks to introduce the basics of the Christian faith through a series of talks and discussions. It is described by its organisers as "an opportunity to explore the meaning of life". While it is a great class for newcomers to faith, there are often long time believers who attend, as well. We all go through ups and downs in our faith walk. At the same time that Alpha is a good introduction to the faith, it can also be a sort of booster shot for anyone when questions about faith arise.

All are welcome. Please come. Please bring a friend. If you have childcare needs during the course, please notify us at office@churchobx.com

SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHERS NEEDED

Our kids need you! We are asking for volunteers to lead our Pre-K, grades K-1, and grades 2-3 small groups during our kids church. Leaders would only need to serve one Sunday a month, but the more teachers on rotation, the less frequently you have to serve. Come hang out with the sweetest groups of students as they grow in their faith!  Contact Joana Houff at joanaphouff@gmail.com for more information or to volunteer.

PREPARING FOR LENT AND EASTER

From Pastor Joey:

Advent and Christmas are finally over, and we celebrated the first Sunday of the Epiphany season this past Sunday. In just about 8 weeks we will be moving into the powerful, sometimes somber, and often healing time of Lent. Lent will begin with a worship service on Ash Wednesday, March 6th. Though it is still 2 months away, I want to ask if you will begin thinking about the coming season of Lent, and to put the Ash Wednesday service on your personal calendar. It is always a very sweet, intimate, and Spirit filled service!

NURSERY HELPERS NEEDED

Please consider helping in the nursery one Sunday a month, or even once a quarter. Our precious little ones need more people to care for them and play with them on Sunday mornings.

If you are able to help please email Christine Schleiden at cschleiden@gmail.com

DID YOU MISS IT: JOURNEY TO JERUSALEM INTEREST MEETING

If you missed the Journey to Jerusalem interest meeting and would like to get information, please contact Matt Desmarais at matt@churchobx.com

COME WITH US TO THE HOLY LAND AS WE WALK WHERE JESUS WALKED

We are considering taking a trip to Jerusalem during the Christmas break of 2019-2020 (next year). It is an amazing experience and the sights, sounds, and smells of the ancient places will literally make your faith come alive! On the trip we will have an opportunity to see the place of Christ's birth, baptism, death, and Resurrection. We will see places where he performed miracles such as walking on the water, multiplying the loaves and fishes, and healing Peter's mother-in-law. We will see places where Christ preached, where Herod ruled, where the Temple stood, where David hid from Saul, and so much more. We will worship together, pray together, talk together, and strengthen and grow bonds of friendships that will prove to be powerful upon our return home! If you are interested in the trip, we will have a short interest meeting immediately after both services on November 18 to discuss exact itinerary, price, fundraising, and answer any questions you may have! Direct questions to Joey at fr.fitz@yahoo.com

Toward the hope of reducing our usage of disposables, we invite you to bring your re-usable coffee mug to church to fill it with our delicious Land of a Thousand Hills coffee that we serve. It will taste even better out of your own cup, and we’ll also be helping the environment. Cheers!
