We are only two days away from our first ever BIG DAY OUT at City View! On Sunday we are heading as a church family to Brights Grove for the day to enjoy food, the beach and each other.
You can find the schedule, directions and you can still let us know you are coming by going on over to www.cityview.cc/bigdayout.
Here are four reasons why you should come if you are apart of our community.
1. It’s Going To Be Fun
Let’s just say it’s not going to be a boring day. Within walking distance of each other is the blue water of Lake Huron, a park with a playground, basketball and tennis courts, Skeeters Bar and Grill, which has a fantastic patio, and Lakeshore Community Church where we will do our meals and a gathering at 4pm.
2. This Is Extended Time With The Church Family
We are up front as a church that the weekly rhythm of our community is our Sunday gatherings and our Community Groups that meet throughout the city. We try and keep it simple from week to week but when we retreat together it gives us extra time where we can meet and build friendships with people we may not know that well.
3. Our Theme Is An Important One
Our theme for Sunday, I think, is an important one. We are saturated in culture where life, schedules and technology make things busy. At the same time we often lack rest.
We are going to take time and look at what it means to Sabbath. Is it important? What are the implications for us today?
There will be an opportunity to worship together, listen to teaching and discuss in groups.
4. This Is A New Rhythm For Our Church
Ultimately, we could potentially see this as a new rhythm for us as a church. There is something both special and important about retreating as a community throughout the year. It gives us time to pause in the busyness of life and worship together through activity, food, drink, song, the scripture and discussion.
Hope to see you Sunday!
