New Women’s class starts November 4

Do you feel that the ability to hear God’s voice is for other people and not for you? Is it only for people who lived in Biblical times?
Not at all! The God who loved you enough to die for you loves you enough to talk to you. And wherever you are in your spiritual walk, God will find a way to speak to you in a way you will understand.

We will be starting a new Ladies’ Sunday School class on November 4 entitled “The Voice of God:  How to Recognize When God is Speaking” by Priscilla Shirer.  There is a sign-up sheet in the foyer.

New Adult Sunday School class

A new adult Sunday School class begins on Sunday, August 5 entitled “Everyday Questions” featuring Ravi Zacharias, Abdu Murray, Michael Ramsden, Stuart McAllister, John Njoroge, and Andy Bannister.  It is designed to equip Christians in  evangelism. The video sessions are all less than 30 minutes.

“Life’s biggest questions are being asked all around you.  Are you hearing the questions?  Are you ready for the  conversation?  Everyday Questions will prepare you to faithfully love your neighbor and share the gospel in today’s complex and ever-changing world.”




Softball team starts a new season

The Christian Fellowship co-ed softball team is starting the 2018 season.  They are in need of someone who can play shortstop this year and it’s always nice to have substitutes.  The first practice will be on Monday, April 23 and the first game is scheduled for the week of May 21st.  Please see Cory Fritch if you are interested in playing.


Lifting Up 2017

Thursday, November 30, 2017 is the day Mosaic Ministries is hosting a silent auction and banquet in support of the needs of children in South Toledo.  Since 2007, their goal has been to use the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ and the priority of education to attack poverty in this historic residential community.

This free event will start at 5:30pm at Parkway Place, Maumee and include a silent auction, dinner, and a chance to hear Bob Lupton, a Christian community developer, entrepreneur and author, whose life’s work has been the rebuilding of urban neighborhoods where families can flourish and children can grow into healthy adults.

The goals this year are to provide for the cost of hosting a thriving preschool in our building and providing for the operating needs of the overall ministry.

New Sermon Series

The current sermon series will present the findings of the Prayer and Bible Study Groups associated to the most important “gaps” between what the Bible describes a church should be and where we currently are as a church.  On June 24, Scott Bernhard summarized the gaps associated with “Outward” functions: Evangelism & Missions.  Over the next 3 weeks we will present the most significant gaps and related Scriptures associated with Inward (July 9 – Care for All/Fellowship), Forward (July 16 – Discipleship/Teaching) and Upward (July 30 – Prayer/Worship).  The intent is to focus our attention on those Scriptures that will inform and inspire our next steps of growth as a church.


Open House for the Kains

You are all invited to an Open House for Daniel and Shannon Kain and their family at the home of Tom and Becky Borck on Friday, July 14 from 7:00pm—9:00pm.  They have sold their home in Whitehouse and will be moving to a new home in Cedarville, Ohio toward the end of July.  We would like to give everyone the opportunity to come and extend your love and blessings to them and to thank them for their ministry among us.  Light  refreshments will be served.


Men’s Breakfast and Bible Study

A new Men’s Breakfast and Bible Study will be meeting in the basement of the church starting at 7:30am every month on the first and third Saturday.    We are going to be studying through the book of Philippians.  The first meeting will be on Saturday, May 6 and is an introduction, overview and discussion of Philippians overall.  You are asked to read all four chapters of Philippians as an overview before attending the first meeting.  The goal is to have a different person be prepared to provide a 20-minute nugget on the portion of the Scripture for the week followed by about 40 minutes of discussion.  There will also be breakfast and a time of prayer.  Any questions, see Tom Borck.
