A NOTE FROM PASTOR PHIL————Hi Clarity,
I apologize in advance for the lengthiness of this. Please read to the end! For clarity's sake, I'll organize what I want to communicate in sections ;)
THE BOTTOM LINE: Edinbrook Elementary has asked if our church would be willing to help fill ONLY the 7:00pm-8:45 pm volunteer slots at their upcoming carnival on Friday, May 3rd.
Here is a link to the signup genius:
To create margin for us all, we are also CANCELLING OUR GATHERING ON SUNDAY, and are instead worshipping the Lord and proclaiming the Gospel in ways that are in alignment with our missional convictions and our Gospel Identity by serving Edinbrook Elementary at what is one of their biggest fund raisers.
In other words, I'm asking everyone who calls themselves Clarity to BE THE CHURCH this weekend by serving at Edinbrook Elementary's Carnival.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: Since we've moved our Sunday gatherings to Edinbrook Elementary, we have been praying for God to open doors of opportunity for us to be a blessing to Edinbrook and the local community. Like the previous schools we used to meet in, when we have asked: "How can we help?" - we didn't really get a response for ways to partner with them.
That is until the Volunteer Coordination for Edinbrook Elementary reached out to us. Realizing that Edinbrook was lacking in volunteer numbers for their upcoming carnival, she did google search of local churches that she thought may be willing to help and she found out that we meet at Edinbrook and reached out to see if we would be willing to help.
I understand this story may be interpreted to each of you in many ways, but as soon as I heard from the Volunteer Coordinator, I truly believed that God was answering a prayer I have been having for our church - that He would open doors for us to begin tangibly being a blessing to those within our sphere of influence. And so I am humbly asking that Clarity would step in and help out in this tremendous way.
WHAT I AM ASKING: I am asking that all of you would prayerfully consider joining us in living life like family, on mission together with God by choosing to serve at a 7:00pm-8:45 pm time slot at Edinbrook's carnival on Friday. You'll see that there are already some people from Clarity Church who have signed up. Please join us as we live out the Gospel within our spheres of influence this Friday!
If you have any questions feel free to ask.
