For the Month of September

Proposed Budget Vote and Ministry Team Leaders
Our church fiscal calendar runs from October through September. Every year we ask our church to approve the new budget and additions to our Ministry Leadership Teams. You can find the budget and the nominees in the weekly e-newsletter (email Sutton@councilroad.org if you need to sign up) or a copy was mailed to you if you are in our Capstone department. We will have an opportunity to meet with the Finance Team to ask questions on Sunday, September 23, right after the 10:15 service in Foyer South. We will vote to approve the new budget and nominees on September 30 in both worship services.

Family Dedication Service 
Do you have a new addition in your family? We want to celebrate with you as you begin parenting your little one. Our Family Dedication service is November 4 and is a time to commit yourselves to raising your child in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. Our church also covenants to come along beside you in this task. It is a special day of celebrating family and anticipating all that God has in store for your child as he or she grows in wisdom, stature and favor with God and man.

New Marriage Book 
Pastor Rick and Teri’s new book on marriage titled First Comes Love is available in Books, etc. for $10. There is nothing in life more challenging or potentially rewarding than marriage. And yet, most couples go into it without adequate preparation. Most problems can be avoided with better communication and helpful coaching. In six chapters followed by questions that couples work through together, the book breaks down the six most important things every couple should know before they say their vows.
