Phillipines Shoe Drive
July 7th - July 29th, 2018
For the month of July, we will be collecting shoes of all sizes for the children of the Philippines. Our missionaries to the Philippines, Rick and Beth Hicks will be here in August and take as many as possible back with them.
We often times get to choose which shoes to wear while the children in the Philippines often go barefoot because they have no shoes. This is one way we can tangibly help those in need.
We will have a box in the back of the chapel to drop off shoes for girls and boys in the Philippines and all sizes are needed.
Missions Team Meetings & Missionary Updates

Ashleigh Laswell will be going into her 5th year as a teacher and Larinda into her first year as the school nurse. We will have a reception in between Sunday services.
July 21 and 22 Our missionaries will be sharing about their ministry and their transition to Turkey in the Fall! They have been serving in New York City for five years now. We will have a reception in between Sunday services.
Prayer Quilt Ministry
July 17th, 2018
A prayer is a powerful tool that God has provided for us. We have chosen to combine the gift of prayer with a quilt for someone in need.
A prayer quilt is a quilt that is made by a group of people who are invested in the ministry. We make quilts for adults and children facing surgery, cancer patients going through treatments, accidents, and other needs.
A quilt is made and then ties put into the quilt for people to tie a knot and say a prayer for the recipient of the quilt. We will then have the quilt at church for people to stop, tie a knot, and say a prayer. Can you touch a prayer? Can you pull it closed and feel its comfort? You can when it is part of a prayer quilt.
Our group meets every third Tuesday of the month from 9AM to 12PM. You can find us in the pre-school room at Celebration Community Church.
You do not need to know how to quilt to be a part of the group. We simply need people to cut fabric, iron, put ties into the quilt tops as well as sew. We also need volunteers to stand with the quilt prior to each church service.
Please come and join us if you are interested! If you have any questions, please contact Joan Spence (TheCardGirl@yahoo.com) or Jan Johnson (JJBearHeart@TampaBay.rr.com).
If there are any requests for prayer quilts, please click HERE.
If you would like to participate in any other way, please contact us.

IN THE FIELD OUTREACH

The distribution of food is from the collections taken on the 1st weekend of the month at Celebration Community Church. This is a wonderful opportunity to hear the stories of the local community and interact with them. The sharing of God's love though His word will leave your heart wanting to do more. You will have an opportunity to impact God's children and adults.

At Celebration Community Church, we want to give people every opportunity to be connected into community and to understand the culture and language of the church. We have a series of classes called "Discovery: The Path of Discipleship," and it is designed to move people from attenders to partners, and help everyone understand how to grow as a disciple that believes and applies the gospel.
The first class is titled "Partnership," and teaches the distinctives of CCC, and gives you the opportunity to become a Partner at CCC.
To officially become a partner, you will need to fill out an application online, review the church documents attached (they are taught at the class), and then meet with an elder. The application and documents are here, and we encourage you to look at these before the class!
For more information please contact Paul Podraza at firstname.lastname@example.org or Xavier Rivera at email@example.com.
