Message from Pastor Adam (08-27-2021)

Hello Church Family!  It has been a little while since I have written you a message in our newsletter.  I wanted to write to you this week to tell you about all of the exciting things happening at Connect Church.  This September we are launching a sermon series and big event called, “Putting It Back Together.”  Lately it has seemed as if so many things are broken.  Lucky for us Jesus specializes in putting things back together again.  I hope you will join us as we experience the amazing things that happen when we let Jesus put it back together.  This event will be a great opportunity to invite your friends.  We have 3 special events you may want to attend and bring your friends.  September 19 – Carnival Day, September 26 – Sidewalk Chalk Day, and October 3 – Treasure Hunt Day.  This should be tons of fun so we hope you will join us!

In addition to our Putting it Back Together event we are also launching a number of new Connect Groups, and a new youth time on Sunday nights for our 6th-12th graders.  Be sure to check below for details and information.  I’m so excited for all the fun, and hope to see you soon.  I pray you all are staying safe and healthy!

-Pastor Adam Ricks
