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.
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.
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 3: Why Join a 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.

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.
