Church By The Sea

News and Announcements

Dear Church Family,

It's that time of year when the temperature remains in the high 80's and into the 90's all day and through the night. It rains most days for a little bit then it is hot and beautiful once again. Summer is that time of year when our preschool takes a break and our children's ministry does amazing VBS, and now, our youth ministry continues its awesome presence in our teenager's lives. Our church might slow a little but our worship and connecting people to God and to others does not.

Our style and structure of worship changes as well over summer - our choir does not wear robes and they do not practice on Thursday nights. The hope is for anyone who might want to give singing in the choir a try can just come at 9am to the choir room. I hope many of you will try this adventure of helping lead in worship. We also began a new worship experience which began on July 1st. Periodically throughout the summer one person from our congregation will share why he/she joined their hearts with CBTS. It will be amazing to hear people's stories and I looked forward to hearing more as we go thru the summer months.

I hope your summer is filled with great memories and wonderful times. Please take some time to relax and "be still" as Psalm 46:10 charges us to do. I hope every one of you experiences God's love in new and amazing ways this summer. Have a blessed season and I look forward to seeing you all each Sunday.

In His Grip, 
Chris

The Church By The Sea completes Habitat build

HABITAT HOUSE DEDICATION

The Church By The Sea sponsored it's first Habitat For Humanity build with the generous donation from the Rosemary Duffy Larson Estate. The project began in the fall of 2017 with volunteers from our church along with volunteers from the Pompano Beach Fire Rescue led by John Jurgle. The project culminated with the dedication on Saturday, June 23, 2018. There are discussions on sponsoring another build so please be on the look out and see if you are available to participate in this very rewarding opportunity of service.

On a mission

The Church By The Sea gives 11% of all your pledges and offerings to the missions in need. In the first quarter of 2018 your contributions allowed the church to give $15, 260, which is $1,907 per mission. 

Additionally, our children were able to raise $1,561.17 to feed the hungry in Haiti.

The Mission committee led by Nancy Mauro, Marcia Short, and Deborah VonBehren have much planned for the near future. Fred and Margo Klein have been leading the Homeless Feeding on the second Saturday of each month. The committee just completed a visit of Sheridan House in June and are planning a visit to Seafarer's House sometime in August. 

As you can see much is happening in our missions program and we can always use more volunteers as well as ideas. If you would like more information or to get involved please send us a note.
