STILL TIME TO SIGN UP TO HELP: ROOM IN THE INN -- DATES AND DETAILS

UPDATE: Along with the pot luck style donations that members of the church bring for the main meal, there is a fairly good size list of items for breakfast and lunch that are needed to make this hosting week happen. If you’d like to help donate to that list click on the following link, or copy and paste the link into a browser window to pull up a SignUp Genius page where you can volunteer. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b054aaaab2aa6ff2-room

Room In The Inn (RITI) will begin its outreach to the homeless on November 25, and concluding in mid April. Through God’s ineffable provision, a dwelling has been obtained, just south of St. Andrew’s Church in Nags Head, to house RITI guests throughout this season.

Church of the Outer Banks is blessed to be able to host RITI December 23-30. We will serve guests at the Nags Head dwelling. A female overnight monitor has been secured who will reside at the residence, which means that we need only one male overnight monitor each evening as there is housing for 14 maximum capacity.

We will provide the evening meal, breakfast, and (self packed) lunch provisions daily.
In years past, evening meals have been provided via church groupings: Examples of this— 8:30 service, 10:10 service, Gill life group (Monday, December 24), women’s Bible study(s), men’s fellowship/study, vestry/missions. Group leaders: please be in touch for choosing an evening. Variety in meals will be coordinated.

A list of needed food items for breakfast and lunch will be provided in the next two weeks.
Evening meal coordination will take place once groups sign up.

We want to thank you right up front for all you are able to do to help this ministry, and especially this year. Christmas week is such a great week to be able to reach out and bless the life of someone who is less fortunate than we are. At the same time, it’s a busy time for all of us. Family gatherings, travel plans, and more, make the need for early planning so important. RITI is a great opportunity, at a time of the year when we feel very blessed, to teach younger family members about sharing abundance, and serving as Christ served. Something else to consider: This church is filled with people with huge hearts. Many people are involved in multiple ministries. Please contribute to one of these meals, and more only as you desire and are able. On Christmas night the Gill’s will be present to serve food, so there is only a need for food contributions. But, if you are free and want to come help, you’ll be welcome Fellowship and meal sharing with the guests are encouraged.

Any and all questions with regard to Room in the Inn should be directed to Della Gill. You can call her, or email her at dellagill@charter.net

CHRISTMAS EVE WORSHIP SERVICE-- LOCATION AND TIME

babe in manger.jpg

CHRISTMAS EVE 2018

Church of the Outer Banks will celebrate Christmas and the birth of Jesus on December 24th at the Hilton Garden Inn, Kitty Hawk at 5pm.

Location address: 5353 N Virginia Dare Trail, Kitty Hawk, NC 27949

A special note from Pastor Joey:

This is a special time of the year for everyone. Families come together to share joyful family traditions. Blessings abound. It’s a time when people reflect on their lives and hopes and dreams. For some it is a more difficult time because of recent loss, or memories of old wounds.

Please be strong in prayer for your friends and family, for those who will come to join in celebration at your homes, and join us in our celebration on Christmas Eve. Ask God’s blessing on each and all, that the Holy Spirit might come into their lives in a special way this Christmas, and that lives will change in the New Year. Expect Miracles!

A NEW HOME-- CHURCH OFFICES ARE MOVING

We have been searching and praying for almost 3 years about new office and ministry space. While our current office has served us well, the small space has limited our ministries. Finding an office that fits our needs financially, is spacious enough, and is in a strategic location has not been very easy. BUT, God is good, and has brought us a location that we are incredibly excited about!

The Vestry and I have prayerfully considered many options. The Central Square Shopping Center is right next door to the YMCA and offers us TWO spaces, each 800 square feet. We will use one space for offices, and the other will be used as ministry space. We will be able to do so much in these areas: Youth Group, worship team rehearsals, bible studies, times of special worship, fellowship space, and so much more!

The space will be open for you to visit this Sunday after church. We will take the month of December to move in and get the spaces set up. We will need your help for a few different things:

  1. We are in need of a few things: We need a new desk for Chris, another desk for Matthew, and a new bookshelf. We also are looking for a full size refrigerator. As we begin to move, there may be a few other furnishings that we need, and we will let you know. In the mean time, if you are getting rid of something, will you let us know first?

  2. We will need some help moving. If you have a truck, would you consider giving us an hour or two when you are free to help us move the furniture?

  3. We need help cleaning! Monday morning at 10:00 I will be heading over to the new space to clean windows, bathrooms, and anything else that needs to be done to begin moving in. If you have some free time Monday morning, we would love to have a little help.

Thank you ALL for your prayers for our church. God has heard them, and He is blessing us immensely! In 2019 we will have new office space, the Y will begin renovations to help accommodate us better, our ministries will continue to grow, and with the Grace of God, we will be able to reach the community with the good news of Jesus Christ!

Peace of Jesus,

Joey

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

Bob Goff Book.jpg

Ladies Evening Bible Study

Ladies, what happens when we stop worrying about a challenging world full of difficult people and instead simply love everybody? If this sounds interesting come to our Fall study! We will be walking through the book “Everybody Always” by Bob Goff. It’s an easy read full of humor and lighthearted stories about loving people as Jesus did.

We will start next Wednesday 9/26 at the church office from 7-8:30. Amazon currently has the book for $11.59 and used for $6.42. Click the link to go directly to their website to order: https://www.amazon.com/Everybody-Always-Becoming-Setbacks-Difficult/dp/0718078136

In addition to the study each week we will be practicing ways to connect with the Lord and building our capacity for Joy!

Peace,
Brandie
