December 2016 - January 2017: The Plan

Added on by Collective Church.

Here's everything you need to know about the end of December and the beginning of January at Collective Church-

 

Monday, December 19 - Women's Ministry Christmas Party!

There will be an ornament exchange with a $5 limit. You don't have to RSVP or anything, just show up! It starts at 6:30pm.

 

Wednesday, December 21 - Churchwide Business Meeting

At the end of every year, we hold a churchwide business meeting to review and discuss the church's financial records and to elect a new member to the church's board of directors. All church members may vote if in attendance. If you aren't a member of the church but would like to be, please reply to this email, and I will send you a membership form that you can fill out and bring with you to the meeting.

 

Saturday, December 24 - Christmas Eve Services

Our two identical Christmas Eve services will happen at 3:15pm & 4:30pm on Saturday afternoon. They will last about 45 minutes each. A large portion of the service will be led by our Children's Ministry, which is super fun. After the 4:30pm service, everybody is invited to join us at the home of Nate and Jackie Fritzel for a Christmas Eve party (the Fritzels' address will be printed on the Christmas Eve service bulletins).

 

Sunday, December 25 - NO SUNDAY SERVICES!

It's Christmas Day, so we will have no Sunday services!

 

Sunday, January 1, 2017 - 10:30 Service Only / No Children's Ministry

For New Year's Day, we're having a more stripped-down version of our normal church services. We will have some brunch food available before and after the service. Courtney Clark will preach, and all of our Children's Ministry classes will be closed. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding as we give our dedicated, hard-working teachers and volunteers two much-deserved weeks off!

 

Sunday, January 8, 2017 - Back to Life, Back to Reality

And here's where our odd journey through the holiday season comes to an end. On January 8, we will be back to our normal service times (9:00am & 10:30am) with a new sermon series called "Jonah the Very Worst Prophet."

 

And of course, there will be more things to be excited about in 2017, including our third annual anniversary dinner, more stuff from our Women's Ministry, our Children's Ministry, and so much more. I am so glad you are part of this church with us and that we are able to do all of the things we do.

Sunday, September 25: Dr. Todd Still at Collective Church!

Added on by Collective Church.

On Sunday, September 25, Dr. Todd Still will be our guest preacher! 

Dr. Still currently serves as the Dean of Truett Seminary at Baylor University. He also teaches courses in New Testament Studies and Greek.

He is the coauthor of the book Thinking Through Paul: A Survey of His Life, Letters, and Theology (Zondervan, 2014).

Theologians generally describe Dr. Still by stating that he "has serious game."

Our Sunday services begin at 9:00am & 10:30am.

Backpacks and School Supplies for Kids Who Need Them!

Added on by Collective Church.

Hey everybody!

We're collecting backpacks and school supplies for a local organization called Alliance for Children. If you'd like to help out, take a look at the lists below, go buy the school supplies wherever you like to do that kind of thing, and bring them with you to church on Sunday morning. If you have any questions, you can contact Jackie Fritzel, who is overseeing the project for us.

Elementary Classes Closed Sunday, July 24!

Added on by Caroline Carmack.

Our elementary-age classes in our children's ministry will be closed on Sunday, July 24. The kids are welcome to join us in the adult church services, sing with us, and take communion with us! 

The pre-school and baby classes will remain open. 

All classes will resume on Sunday, July 31.

New Series Begins April 3, 2016!

Added on by Collective Church.

We're starting a new series, and it's a big one.

The series' title is A Relaxing Stroll Through the Book of Revelation, and it's going to last about twenty weeks (with a few starts and stops along the way).

Here's the thing about the book of Revelation: It's pretty weird, and it freaks people out. But it shouldn't. It's not about the end of the world, and it's not about crazy monsters crawling out of the ground. It's a letter that was written to a group of real people who were dealing with real problems during a real time in history.

We're going to talk about it, but we're not going to freak out. We're going to learn what's really going on beneath all that weirdness.

So join us, won't you, on our Relaxing Stroll Through the Book of Revelation.

We'll bring the coffee and the donuts. 

Children's Ministry!

Added on by Collective Church.

We are always in need of help in our Sunday morning Children's Ministry. We want our kids to have the best experience possible at Collective Church, and that means having enough teachers and team members to keep all of our classrooms open for both services. If you would like to volunteer in one of our children's classrooms, please contact Caroline Carmack!

New Series!

Added on by Collective Church.

Our new 3-part sermon series begins this weekend (Sunday, March 6) as we prepare for Easter!

It's called The Confusing, Terrible, Wonderful Cross.

Services are at 9:30 and 11:00!
