Below you will find some key announcements about SoulThirst happenings:
*On Sunday Dec 23rd we’ll worship at our normal 10am time, and immediately after worship we’ll host a Christmas Cookie Extravaganza! (the sharing of yummy Christmas cookies and fellowship)
*On Christmas Eve (Monday Dec 24th) we’ll host a special worship service from 6:00-7:00pm. Our special Christmas Eve worship service will include traditional Christmas songs and Bible readings, plus the singing of Silent Night by candlelight. We’d love to see you there!
*Pastor Patrick recently found out that the Salvation Army is looking for a bunch more bell-ringing volunteers to serve outside store locations in The Colony, Frisco, Little Elm, Lewisville and Flower Mound. Shifts are as short as 3 hours, and you can stand or sit, and you can also have any friends alongside to help. Pastor Patrick has signed up to help, and encourages you to do so also. To sign up to help, go to the website RegisterToRing.com and complete the registration process. After you visit that website, you can email any additional questions to email@example.com
*SoulThirst Church is participating in the Toys for Tots annual toy drive facilitated by the Marine Corp Reserves. If you’d like to make a donation, please bring an unwrapped, new toy (or toys) to church on Sunday, and donate the toy in the designated box in the front of the sanctuary. We’ll be collecting toys from now till mid-December. Thanks for your generous participation!
*Every Sunday after worship the Pastors lead a 45 minute Adult Bible Study. Class begins 15 minutes after worship concludes. Childcare & nursery are available during class. The class is currently making their way through the book of John, and it's the kind of study where you can jump in anytime.
*Jr High Confirmation Training (for 7th & 8th graders) takes place on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month (11:15am-12:30pm), from September through April. We’ve got 12 students in the class this year, and they’re studying six major foundations of the Christian faith.
*On any month that has a 5th Sunday, our Senior High & Jr High Youth are invited to stay after worship for some games, friendship-building, and fascinating spiritual discussions. Vicar James facilitates this youth gathering, and it takes place from 11:15-12:30 (and includes a pizza lunch.) Their next special gathering will be on Sunday December 30th . With any questions, email Vicar James at firstname.lastname@example.org
*Each year at some point, Pastor Patrick invites anyone interested to journey with him through the Deep Foundations of the Christian Faith. Those who sign up for this journey commit to 4 Saturdays of training, taking place throughout the year, with each Saturday class from 1pm-4pm. This Gospel training is recommended for anyone being led to call SoulThirst their church home, and it’ll definitely be worth your time!
