Ministry Spotlight: Prayer Chain

  • Are you in need of prayer support for something you or someone you know is going through?
  • Do you have someone that you have been praying would come to know Jesus more?
  • Are you a prayer warrior and want to be able to support the Church in the City community through this gift?

Then we encourage you to use the CITC email Pray Chain. You can let us know about your need by dropping a Welcome Card or a note in the offering plate on Sunday morning during service or emailing our Prayer Chain Leader Marlene Garacci. She will then take your prayer and email it to the list of volunteers in our church who are committed to lifting up the needs of the body to Christ.

If you are interested in learning more about being on this list, please contact the church office at citc@citcweb.org. Our Prayer Chain volunteers are all committed to not only praying for the needs of the CITC family but keeping those needs confidential.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4 6-7

Operation Christmas Child Boxes Due – this week

Church in the City has come together for many years now to give to children around the world through Operation Christmas Child. Please take a pre-made cardboard box from the lobby and a flier and get shopping for those kids. More details on how and what to pack can be found at https://www.samaritanspurse.org/what-we-do/operation-christmas-child. You can even build your whole box right online. If you are unable to donate a box but would like to donate funds so that CITC can do the shopping for you, please contact the church office at 414-961-1122 or citc@citcweb.org. The deadline to get boxes to CITC is November 13, 2016.

 

Ladies Spa Day

There is still time to be a part of our Spa Day on Saturday, October 15, from 1:30 to 4:30. This year, we are excited to host the women from Teen Challenge at Spa Day. This is a special opportunity for CITC to raise and lift up women who may not have fully encountered the love of Jesus in their lives. Many hands make light work, so please contact the office if you are able to volunteer for gift bag assembly, hospitality, manicures or set-up/takedown.

The Bike Race is Coming June 25th

The Downer Ave Bike Race is an international professional bike race that literally circles our building every year. For close to 20 years CITC has participated in this event by giving away water bottles, opening up our doors for people to use the rest rooms and having a place for the kids to play. This outreach is a great opportunity for us to meet our neighbors but we need your help. Soon you will find sign-up sheets in the lobby for one-hour volunteer slots. We will need volunteers willing to sit at tables scattered along the race route to hand out water bottles, people to be in the building keeping the bathrooms clean and stocked as well as helpers to supervise the children’s areas outside on the lawn. For many, it is the highlight of our church summer events and can be an amazing community building experience. Please consider joining us for at least a few hours on that day. We usually need the most help from about 3 – 8 PM. For questions, contact the church office at citc@citcweb.org or 414-961-1122
