Hey Church With U!
For the month of October, we are partnering with Compassion International to provide loving care for children living in poverty. Every 6 check-ins provides 1 day of care for a child in need.
Compassion International is a child-advocacy ministry that pairs compassionate people with those who are suffering from poverty. The ministry releases children from spiritual, economic, social, and physical poverty. The goal is for each child to become a responsible and fulfilled adult.

P.S. If this is the first time you’ve heard of our Facebook check-in program, here's how it works... we make a donation to a Kingdom-building cause every time someone checks in on the church's Facebook. It’s a great way to tell your friends about Church With U and do some good in the process.
During the month of August, we are partnering with Save The Children to provide early childhood education and tools for kids in need in the United States. Every 2 Facebook check-ins at Church With U provides 1 day of lessons and tools for kids.
Save the Children’s Early Steps to School Success is a federal early childhood development program that promotes school readiness and social/emotional development for children from low-income families. To learn more about Save The Children, check out their site: http://www.savethechildren.org

It is AMAZING at how far God has brought us since our first church service on September 21, 2014! I wanted to do a new blog post showing you some of the updates on the building. Take a look and get excited about what God is doing and is about to do in our church. And be one the lookout for some dates that we will be needing some volunteers to continue this process.
Thank you so much for those of you who have volunteered countless number of hours already and thank you for all of those who have given to Immeasurably More to make this renovation process happen!
If you haven't given but want to, you can give to the Immeasurably More fund right HERE.

For the hot month of July, we will help raise people out of poverty by providing safe drinking water to Haitian families. Every Facebook check-in at Church With U will provide 1 week of safe drinking water for a family in need.
We are doing this by partnering with Northwest Haiti Christian Mission (NWHCM). Northwest Haiti Christian Mission partners with local churches to bring the people of Northwest Haiti out of spiritual, physical and social poverty. They serve thousands of people through a diverse collection of programs that include schools, meal projects, orphanages, medical clinics, church planting, and agricultural development.

This June, we get to play a part in the fight against poverty by providing shoes for people around the world. Every 10 Facebook check-ins at Church With U will provide 1 pair of shoes for someone in need through Soles4Souls.

Hey Church! Wanted to give you guys a quick update on the new building. It looks like within the next few weeks we will have our demo permit and we will be knocking down some walls!!! So get ready to put some sweat equity in this thing! When the time comes we will be posting on here as well as social media about workdays and different things like that. So just stay tuned and you will be in the loop.
Another thing to be on the lookout for our date for our "Dessert Tours". Yep you heard that right...touring the new building while eating desserts...couldn't be any better! There will be limited space at these so we will do a couple so everyone will have a chance to come and be a part. The first one will be MAY 15th at 4:30pm. You can sign up for the tour right HERE. Once we get to 30 people we will have to cut it off and start filling up another time slot. We can't wait to show the building to you guys and talk about where things are going to be as well as pray over it as a church family.
A quick update on the Immeasurably More Campaign. The Immeasurably More Campaign is what we are doing to raise money to do all the renovations necessary without going into debt to do it. We believe that God has called us to be good stewards of what He has entrusted us with and we believe that His people will give to make this dream a reality. So far to date, you guys have given $47,233 towards our goal of $100,000! That's some extreme generosity!
We are to the point now where we are about to start paying architects and contractors as well as getting ready to buy paint and chairs and other things that are needed for our space. So we are well on the way to reaching our goal but there is still some work to do. So if you have been considering giving to the Immeasurably More Campaign but just didn't know where to start, we know just the place. Looking over the equipment that we need in our new facility a big portion of our monies will be going to chairs. Comfy padded chairs. 350 comfy padded chairs. Including shipping we are looking at about $49 a chair. So if you are looking for a great way to give to the Immeasurably More Campaign, would you consider giving an amount that could go to buy a couple of chairs? A couple of chairs that your family member, friend or coworker might sit in and hear the life-giving message of Jesus and say yes to starting a relationship with Him! You can give online HERE and choose the Immeasurably More Campaign fund.
Thank you guys for how you continue to Love God and Love People well and I can't wait to see what God has in store for us during our new and exciting journey that is ahead!
One mom will have her “Cinderella” moment at Church With U this Mother’s Day. She’ll be surprised with a $500 "Around Town Shopping Spree"!
Being a mom is hard. They deal with frustration, sleep-deprivation, and a lot of inconvenience. Carrying the weight of motherhood is no small task. And probably every mom has wondered if she has what it takes to keep doing what she is doing.
Because of generous people giving at Church With U, we were able to do for one mom what we wish we could do for every mom—give her an out-of-this-world experience of God’s love.
A shopping spree just for her. We are talking stores like TJ Maxx, Style ASAP, JoJo's, JC Penney and a day at Bliss on Main.
In the Mother’s Day service, we’ll pick one mom to have a shopping spree all to herself. You wont have to worry about buying things for your family, this is just for you. We want you to know that you matter to God and you matter to us. And this is our little way of showing you that you are special and that #MomsMatter.
Share this post with a mom or a friend to invite them to Church With U for a magical Mother’s Day. (We promise their kids will fall in love with Church With Kids, too.)
