HAPPY SPRING!

What a great way to welcome in May! Join us for our monthly Morning Cup of Peace. We will catch up with one another, consider a Scripture together, and break into small groups to pray. We sure miss seeing YOUR FACE!
MARK YOUR CALENDAR

The first Sunday of every month the kids at Circle will work on our service project. We will collect clean socks along with small food (granola bars or small water bottles) 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. The mission is to show these individuals love, respect and hope. Donations are always welcome and can be placed at the kid’s check in table. For more information, contact Lori H at 770-309-0533

Navajo Nation Help
COVID-19 is hitting the Navajo Nation hard – again. Even though we are told the Navajo Nation is on lockdown, we know people who can safely and personally deliver food and supplies deep into the rez. We’re talking about putting aid in the hands of people who don’t have electricity or running water to begin with. We are collecting supplies, see the list below. Then we take those supplies to a friend’s carport in downtown Phoenix. She takes it from there, makes (and verifies!) the deliveries, and receives no payment for this ministry. This is as simple and as grassroots as it gets.Here’s how you can help:
– Buy supplies (see list below)
– Bring those supplies to Circle on Sunday morning, or arrange a time during the week by contacting Juliana at frontdesk@circleofpeacechurch.com
– We also need help delivering supplies to the downtown drop spot. For more info on how to do this, email Juliana at frontdesk@circleofpeacechurch.com
– Even if you are out of state or out of country, you can give financially to this offering, and 100% of your gift will go to buy supplies. For more info on how to do this, email Juliana at frontdesk@circleofpeacechurch.comAny other questions, contact Pastor Jeremy. Thank you!
Supplies:

  • Canned meat – no tuna or canned fish of any kind please
  • Chicken soup
  • Water
  • Bread
  • Peanut butter and jelly
  • Spam
  • Canned fruit
  • Potatoes
  • Tea

BIBLE/BOOK STUDY TRIADS
Women of Peace Triads continue to form, and we would love to have you be part of this program. What is a Triad? They are a 3-person Bible/Book study groups. Some groups may have four, depending on the situation. Groups can choose to meet in-person (we suggest safely outdoors) or online monthly, weekly, bi-weekly, or whatever combination your Triad chooses. We will suggest books or Bible studies to use. When it comes down to you, your group chooses when and what. We want to encourage building relationships with other women at Circle of Peace Church and encouraging each other in our faith journey.

Would you please consider joining a Triad in 2021? If you are interested, please send us a message at women@circleofpeacechurch.com.

SMALL GROUPS AT CIRCLE
We want to be intentional in our commitment to explore relationships with God and with other members of Circle of Peace Church. One way to accomplish that is through Small Groups. Groups currently meet virtually. Through a variety of subject matter (books, Bible study, sermons) we will see what mysteries and miracles God wants to show us. Consider joining a Small Group today!

Hello all parents! Since we have resumed in-person gatherings, Sunday mornings is really where it’s at. However, for those families still staying home to be careful, I wanted to give you a reminder about our private Facebook GROUP for our families to go to to find all things related to our Children’s Ministry. This is where we can all share pictures and videos that feature our kids, and a place to interact with families in regards to the weekly lessons (for example: our monthly memory verse challenges). How do you get to this Facebook Group?! Just click right here:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/2517698775197512/ to request to join the group and you will be added and be able to see content! It’s that easy!
Secondly, I want every parent with kids in the Preschool (ages 3-5) or Elementary (K-5th) classes to know about the Parent Cue! It is both a website (click here: https://theparentcue.org/faith/) and and app (info here: https://theparentcue.org/app/) that you can use to follow up with our Sunday lessons at home! It is SO critical…especially during these times…that our kids remain connected to sources that point them towards their loving God. And we want to partner WITH you to do that! The Parent Cue is a great resource that will help you stay up-to-date on what we’re teaching each week as well as provide videos, questions, and resources for you to use to carry the conversation and learning through the week! Please be sure to check it out!
Let me know if you have any questions! Stay safe, and be blessed!
