Fifth Sunday Family Church!
You may know that on Sundays at 10:30 am, children in grades K to 5th have the option to go with Jaime Howard back to the classrooms, for a kids church. (Kids are always welcome to sit with their families in worship, however). But: on the fifth Sunday of the month, Circle will have Family Church. During Family Church, kids will remain in the worship center with their parents during the entire worship service. Jaime will have extra activities for kids to do in their seats, and we’ll try to involve the kids in worship in some way. The next Fifth Sunday Family Church is: March 31. It might be a little crazy, but ought to be a lot of fun. Any questions, see Jaime Howard.
Save the date! On Saturday, May 4th from 4-6 p.m. we are going to have teams meet up at Arrowhead Mall for a fun Scavenger Hunt. More details are coming.
At 6 p.m. we’ll meet up at Circle of Peace Church to grill out some food and have a celebration. Join us for one or both events!
To sign up or for more information, contact Jaime or Chris Howard. 602-367-6906.

The last Grief Group at Circle will be Tuesday, April 16 from 7-8 p.m. It will be led by Brent Thomas, a pastor and friend who is also a Hospice Chaplain. There is no meeting in March.
Grief is the natural response to loss or change. The art of Japanese pottery known as “Kintsugi” can help us learn to live with grief of all kinds. With a focus on finding beauty in the imperfect and accepting change, “Kintsugi” teaches regret when anything is wasted. Even our grief. Please join us as we encourage one another through the grieving process
Several people have come to pastor Jeremy saying they are ready to make one or more of the following commitments:
1. They are ready to be baptised
2. They are ready to become formal members of Circle
If you are ready for any of the above, or if you’re just curious and have questions, please email pastor Jeremy

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/
