July 25th - August 1st, 2018
I want to let you know about a special opportunity we are offering you this summer to help you stay connected and deepen your faith. We couldn’t come up with a better name so we are just calling it “Summer Group.” Summer Group is a little like small groups but also a little different. Instead of groups gathering separately in different homes everyone will meet at the church, in the welcome center around tables. Much like small groups, you and your table will share a meal, talk about what’s going on your lives and get a chance to pray for one another. It will give us a great way of staying connected this summer.
It will also give us an opportunity to deepen our understanding of the Bible. The Bible can be intimidating. It is a big book with a lot of different parts and names of people and places you’ve never heard of, but this summer we are going to help you know and understand the overall story and flow of the Bible. The truth is that if you know a few key stories and characters in the Bible the whole thing opens up for you. The Bible becomes easier to understand and the intimidation factor is removed. And that is what we want. God loves us and wants to speak to us through His word. We don’t want to be intimidated or confused by the Bible. We want to love it and we want God to use it to change our lives.
So we will share those key stories with you and you will get a chance to discuss them around the table. You will share your thoughts, ask questions and begin to understand and love the Bible!
OneRace Stone Mountain - Bus Registration
August 25th, 2018
Reserve your spot on the bus for the OneRace Stone Mountain event on August 25th. We are chartering a bus or buses so that our groups from the Chattahoochee Valley can ride together. Sharing this valuable travel time will help us to grow our relationships and demonstrate our solidarity.
You can reserve your spot on the bus for only $10.00. If you register here for the bus ride, we will register you for the event as well.
We will board the bus at 7:30am August 25 in the Parking lot of Christ Community Church. You will need to bring money for your meals and wear comfortable clothes. It is sure to be hot that day.
Converge 2:14 is encouraging Chattahoochee Valley residents to participate in this gathering for worship and intercession at Stone Mountain, which Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., referenced in his 1963 “I Have A Dream” speech in Washington, D.C. “Let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia,” Dr. King declared; on the week of the 55th anniversary of this speech, we will gather at Stone Mountain to embody that dream.
Fortify - September 9, 16, 23, 30
September 9th - September 30th, 2018
We love it when new folks come to the Fort. We understand that when you are new somewhere, you probably have some questions. We want to help answer those questions and help you get connected here at The Fort. So we have created a new experience just for you. It is called Fortify. Fortify means “to strengthen.” And we believe Fortify will help you strengthen your connection with your Heavenly Father and with other Christians.
So, what exactly is Fortify?
Fortify is a four week small group experience, led by Pastor Matt, that will help you build strong connections with your Heavenly Father and with the other Christians. During the four weeks we will discuss what it means to be connected to God and the church. We will also get some practical help on how to grow strong in our faith. Our next Fortify experience begins Sunday evening, September 9th at 5:30 and will meet for three weeks following. We will provide childcare and dinner each week.
If you are new to The Fort we would love for you to come.
If you are new in your faith or new to the church, Fortify is the perfect place for you.
