Big news: Circle will be adding a second Sunday morning worship service in the fall!

To support the second service, Circle will be holding a “Second Service Family Meeting.” This is a not business meetings, no votes will be taken, and anyone can attend this open meeting. The purpose of  Family Meetings is communication and prayer, and it will be facilitated by Pastor Jeremy. The last Family Meeting will be held at Circle on August 25 between 9:55 and 10:15 AM (yeah it’s weird timing, but we think it will work). Any questions, ask pastor Jeremy or a member of the Board.

Kid’s Classes

Nursery: Nursery care for infants 0-2 years old in Room 1
Preschool: Great class for kids 3-5 years old in Room 3.
Elementary: Kindergarten-5th Graders in Room 2.

Our classes are focused on introducing our little and big kiddos to Jesus and helping them make wiser choices, build stronger relationships, and develop a deeper faith. Both the First Look preschool curriculum and our 252 Basics elementary curriculum weave music, small group discussions, and creative activities together to reinforce one clear and simple bottom line each week so kids can walk away remembering what matters most.

You can find more information about what’s coming up for kids and families on Facebook. Like “Kids at Circle” for updates on what the kids are learning.

For families that want to follow along with the curriculum and receive helpful follow-up info to bring the lesson home, you can download the free Parent Cue app to follow along with the curriculum we are teaching! Check it out!

During the month of August we will be collecting items for sock balls for the homeless. For this service project, we will collect clean socks along with small food (granola bars or small gift certificates) and hygiene items (lip balm, sample/hotel sizes of soap and shampoo). We put the food & hygiene items into a pair of socks, roll it into a ball, and give the “sock balls” to people at Circle to keep in their cars. When we see the homeless and/or panhandlers, we hand them the sock ball.

There is a box in the front of the Sanctuary for your donations.

We will stuff the socks during our ‘Fall Kick-off’ party on Sunday, September 8th.

On September 5, Men At Circle will volunteer in the first of our service outings at the House of Refuge Sunnyslope.  We will prepare dinner for the men, and fellowship with them during dinner and bible study.  We are looking for a few more guys to join us on 9/5 and are looking to build a couple teams of 6-8 guys on a rotating basis going forward.  Let Chris Howard (602–367-6906) know if you are interested in volunteering for 9/5 or being on one of the teams.

Save the date! On Sunday, September 8th we’re going to celebrate the official launch of the second service and the start of Fall with a party.  More details to come.

Underground Coffee Project

Circle of Peace supports Tierra Nueva and The Underground Coffee Project by purchasing their coffee and serving it at our services.

Tierra Nueva accompanies men and women leaving America’s “underground” of crime, jail, prison, addiction, debt, and living in the shadows. Together they find a community of belonging, compassion, and they put their hands to new work.

Some of these recovering ex-offenders are now small-batch, artisan coffee roasters.

For more information visit http://underground.coffee/
