Greetings E-news Friends,
Five Briarcliff Prayers:
In four weeks, we will celebrate our four-year anniversary at Briarcliff Church and our first year on the Northgate campus. It has been amazing to see God work through generous people like you. You have generously given your time and resources to the ministries of our church. Way to go!!
This Sunday we will unpack the next message in this series on Five Briarcliff Prayers which focuses on our core values--the 5 G’s. First was the Gospel, last week was Growing in Christ and this week will be Generosity. God has demonstrated for us a measure of generosity beyond our full comprehension. He greatly desires to let his generosity flow through us. Find out this Sunday how you can experience a blessed life of God’s generosity flowing through you.
CLICK HERE for a prayer guide on praying for what is most important. You can print it and use it as part of your daily time alone with God. The exciting days ahead are paved by our praying. Take some time each day to focus on what is really important.
We continue to have great teams of volunteers cleaning and moving items from the work areas on Sundays to clear for the week’s construction, and then putting them back into those areas on Saturdays in preparation for usage on Sunday mornings. If you could help either this Sunday, August 6 at 12:15-12:45 PM or Saturday, August 12 at 9:00-11:00 AM, please sign up HERE.
Take the opportunity to bless those in need by bringing canned goods the first Sunday in each month. Add it to your shopping list this week and bring the items this Sunday. Your faithfulness in this ministry makes a big difference.
