Our Fall Community Groups kick-off on Sunday, September 13th!! I know it sounds funny to talk about the fall while it is 99 degrees outside but the truth is, seasons change. I believe that for many of you our Community Groups will usher in a NEW season in your life. God never intended us to follow Him alone. He created us to be in a spiritual family. I would also like to invite you to host a group. It is simple to do…just find something you enjoy and do it. Maybe you want to have a Bible Study or go bowling every Thursday night – invite others to be part of it for 11 weeks. You may like playing golf or going out to eat – invite others to join you for 11 weeks. We will have small group host training on Tuesday, September 1st at the church at 7:00 pm. We will do our best to train and support you throughout the entire process. YOU CAN DO THIS! You won’t regret taking this step to host a small group. Also, your group doesn’t have to be specifically for people who attend City Point. You may have friends outside of City Point and you could form a group with them.

We started 21 days of prayer today. I encourage you to take some extra time over the next 21 days to pray. Take advantage of the prayer journal that we have handed out the last couple of Sunday’s to help lead you in prayer. We have planned a special time of prayer in preparation for the fall as we believe God for a season of fruitfulness in our church. We will have a 1 hour-long corporate prayer service from 9:00am – 10:00am on Saturday – August 29th, September 5th, and September 12th leading up to the kick-off of our THREE Services coming up on September 13th. Join us for this special season of prayer!
Here are some specific prayer needs for City Point:
- Point Team Members
Matthew 9:37 Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
7 In the same way, there is more joy in heaven over one lost sinner who repents and returns to God than over ninety-nine others who are righteous and haven’t strayed away! (Luke15:7 NLT)
- Wisdom & Guidance for the leadership
If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. James 1:5
- Finances & Provision
And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19
- Health of the church
As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love. Ephesians 4:16
