New Online Giving Platform - Rebel Give
We are transitioning to a new online giving platform - Rebel Give - in an effort to greatly reduce the processing fees charged to the church. We would like you to begin using the new platform during the month of October as we will no longer be supporting Subsplash or Paypal in the upcoming months. If you give with your bank account it will be at no cost to you and to the church. Please visit our giving page to see how you can start giving using Rebel Give. We have prepared a useful instructional video and a page explaining how you can cancel your Subsplash recurring automated gift.
We opened up registration and set up a tentative date for November 24th for this year's family dedication. Please register if you have an interest in being part of the dedication This is a public commitment by parents to bring their children up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord (Eph. 6:4). This is a neat opportunity for parents to express their desire to raise their child(ren) in a home that honors Christ. It also gives our entire church a chance to pray for our little ones.
Women's Retreat - Save the Date
The women's ministry had to move the dates for the retreat to next year because of the restrictions at the retreat center. The new dates are May 13th to 15th at Zephyr Point Conference & Retreat Center. More information will and registration will follow in the future. Stay tuned.
Nursery During Outdoor Service
We are thankful that we are able to use the indoors of Dante's to serve our parents with our nursery ministry. This is for children 0-3 years of age. You will see a sign-in table outside by the side door of the building. We are limited in the number of kids we can take due to the limitation of volunteers and if you have a desire to serve in this capacity, please let Anna Gol or the check-in table volunteers know.
Community Groups Started
This week all of the community groups are Chapter 4: Why Listen to Preaching in the Church? from Spiritual Disciplines within the Church by Donald Whitney. It's not too late to join and enjoy the Christian fellowship midweek with the saints of City Bible. Read Pastor Vlad's encouragement and update on community groups and join a group in your area.
Opportunities to Serve
We are very grateful full all the volunteers that make our ministries happen, but we a short of some help and want to ask you to volunteer. Currently, on Sunday's we need help with the setup and tear down of our outdoor services. Also, our media team is looking for designers, photographers, videographers, etc. If you have other gifts and would like to serve, to go ahead and visit the following serve page to let us know how you would like to get involved.
Computer (Coffee) and Counsel
We live in a world that is changing rapidly from day to day because of the speed that information can travel. Please consider joining this time to keep your feet grounded on the solid Rock of Jesus Christ in the midst of the storm.
The Coffee and Counsel time has been temporarily moved to Saturdays, from 9:00am to 10:00am on Zoom. Please register here to be included on updates.

Did you know that one of the easiest, and most passive ways you can help the advance of the Gospel, is by interacting with our Church social media presence (and other ministries). Even a simple "like" will help put our posts in the view of your non-believing friends. Comments are better in Facebook, since they equate the comments with popularity.
