Announcements

Sunday mornings at 10:30am all summer long!

Summer Sermon Series! Study along with our summer sermon series based on the book Running with the Giants by John C. Maxwell. “In the race of life – a contest of stamina, endurance, faith, and understanding – we are never alone. Others have run it before us. In John C. Maxwell’s vision of humanity, they are in the stands, urging us on, praying for us, and offering the wisdom of their experience. We need only listen for their voices and hear their stories to turn our modern-day challenges into victories.” (Front Flap) If you’d like a book to follow along, the cost is $10. Contact the office or get a book at a kiosk this week.

Rachel's Vineyard Retreat

Rachel's Vineyard is a ministry committed to healing hearts broken by abortion. The word abortion just jumped off the page and caused panic, shame & anger in some of you I'm sure. If that's you, that fear is of the enemy, a lie, and this post is for you. 1 in every 3 people within the church are post abortive. Most suffer in silence, feeling as if their feelings are somehow wrong or deserved and many are unsure of how or where to look for help. Know that you are NOT ALONE and that 94% of post abortive people experience these feelings. Others feel as though they have obtained God's forgiveness, and they likely have, but still drag the heavy symptoms around needlessly. The enemy still has a hold of their hearts. If you identify with any of the symptoms below, pray about making contact, even if you don't know why. Trust the Lord to lead you. This retreat changed my life as much as marriage and children did. 3 days is all it took! - Erika 248.736.1075.

If you feel that there is always something weighing you down or holding you back and there is an abortion in your past, please consider attending. If your close friend or family member struggles, love them enough to pass on the information in a caring, confidential manner. There is HOPE and HEALING at Rachel's Vineyard. Call or email us today. Registering for confidential September 15-17 retreat now. Scholarships always available.

Summerfest

Summerfest! Summerfest! Summerfest! Our annual celebration is August 13 immediately following our outdoor service. Don’t miss baptisms, inflatables, games, a dunk tank, a juried pie bakeoff winner announcement and more! If you would like to participate in the community table we ask that you bring a side dish and a dessert to share. We will have a team of chefs grilling food for purchase as well as a few grills available for you to cook your own.

Looking for a few good men and women! Summerfest is near and is going to be epic! BUT we need a little help pulling it off. Volunteer jobs include: inflatable assistance, ice cream scooping, game assistance, etc.  Shifts will be short so we all have time to enjoy the afternoon. Call Reba in the office to sign up. 248.628.0038 or email her at rparisot@ctkc-oxford.org

Annual Golf Outing (rescheduled)

Sunday, September 17 at 1pm.
Please join us for this fun day of golf at Boulder Pointe Golf Club in Oxford. This year, we have added a few exciting options such as the $5,000 putting challenge, hit the green contest, and your chance to hit the WORLD'S LONGEST DRIVER! - Signup Online.

Your participation will benefit the CTK Youth Ministry. Funds raised go to youth who can't afford to attend Spring Hill Camp. Spring Hill is a powerful spiritual weekend near the Christmas holiday and many families need help to have their youth attend. There will be a banquet following the outing. Please invite your family and friends as this is an outreach event. We are a non profit which means your fee is tax deductible.

If you are not a golfer, you can still join us for dinner! We are also looking for some volunteers to help with the fun activities we have planned for the day. If you are interested in helping out, please contact Shawn Lally at 586.201.2304 or Signup Online.
