MARCH 2018 Newsletter
Check out whats happening this month at City Point!
FREQUENCY: Cutting Through the Noise
We know that God desires to lead our life. Therefore we must learn to follow Him. This month we will look at how to hear God’s voice. Jesus made a promise in John 10:27, “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.” In March, we are going to cut through the noise and learn how to listen for God’s voice.
Get started on the pathway to discovering your purpose and realizing your potential with our Connection Point class! We talk about healthy habits of a believer, how to make a difference in the world you live in and we also share the vision of City Point. If you recently became a follower of Christ or you are interested in joining City Point Church, this is the class for you. Connection Point takes place every six weeks on a Sunday night, from 5:00–8:00 PM, at the end of the class we will share a meal together. To sign up for the next available class, just click on the link below to register so we can include you in the meal and provide childcare if needed.
Sign Up Today to Register for Water Baptism on March 25th!
At City Point, we believe that water baptism is a celebration of your decision to follow Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Just as the symbols of the wedding and wedding ring are a declaration of a marriage covenant, water baptism is the outward declaration of the covenant you’ve made with God. As your church, we would like to stand with you as you publicly declare you have made the decision to surrender your life to the Lord. Our next Water Baptism will be during 2nd Service on March 25th. To sign up, click the registration link below.

Sisterhood Spring Brunch
We are so excited to announce that we will have our very first Sisterhood Brunch on Saturday, April 14th at Event 1013 in downtown Plano at 11:00AM. Our theme for the brunch is “Brave”. Psalms 31:24 says, “Be brave. Be Strong. Don’t give up. Expect God to get here soon.”
It’s going to be a beautiful time together – we will enjoy a catered brunch by XO Coffee Company, debut our new spring Sisterhood shirts, plus we have some fabulous give aways and we will have a panel of ladies that will be talking about finding their “Brave” as they have walked through different seasons of life. Invite your girlfriends and join us for an unforgettable day!

Don’t Forget Serve Day on March 24th
We have recently adopted Prestige Circle and need your help to keep Allen beautiful! You can help by volunteering at one of our Prestige Circle cleanup days. We come together four times a year to serve our city in this way. When we all work together, we can make a difference right here in our community. Our next Prestige Circle cleanup day is coming up on Saturday, March 24th @ 10:00AM.
We are excited to announce an important update to giving at City Point! As you know, your generosity and financial partnership with us is how we are able to help expand the Kingdom.

Ever wonder about the untold details of the Easter story? Did the little donkey Jesus rode on Palm Sunday have a cute name? Which disciple had the dirtiest feet when Jesus washed them? How heavy was the stone in front of the tomb?
We may never discover these answers. But your kiddos will learn all about God’s redemption plan. This March, we are gonna take them on a journey through the Easter story. Our adventure leads up to April 1st with a big Resurrection Celebration! Your little peeps will have an egg-stra fun time that day with Easter games, crafts and a sweet take-home treat!

City Kids had a great time on Super Sunday! Star Wars was a hit and who wouldn’t want a Pixie Stick lightsaber? Looking beyond the Star Wars battle between good and evil, we learned how the Apostle Paul battled for the faith and against incredible opposition. We’re having a great time every Sunday and “The Force” is strong with us! Come and check us out if you’re looking for a great team to be a part of.
Club 56, our 5th and 6th grade class, have been enjoying the J12 study called “Ten.” This group provides a great opportunity for preteens to hang out with kid’s their age, have some tasty refreshments, and get real with what the Bible teaches.
City Kids and Club 56 are great opportunities to connect with other believers while making a great impact. We currently need volunteers for worship team, tech team and Club 56 helpers. Come talk to us about it. We’d love to have you.
