Recap & Reminders 2016 June 23

This coming Sunday, we will resume with our normal schedule of Liturgy followed by coffee break and the Link. The Sunday’s message in the Link, Part 3 from our series “Set Free,” is entitled “Growing through Collaboration, Conflict, Council, & Consensus.

Discussion Questions for upcoming Sunday 
Here are a couple of questions we will start with during our breakout session:
1. What’s needed for a Church community to Grow?
2. Describe a contemporary issue that you believe relates to the following passage. How would you suggest dealing with it?
Acts 15:1-2 1 And certain men came down from Judea and taught the brethren, “Unless you are circumcised according to the custom of Moses, you cannot be saved.” 2 Therefore…Paul and Barnabas had no small dissension and dispute with them.

CHURCH SERVICES, SPECIAL EVENTS & OTHER NEWS
Property at 30 N. Main St, Cranbury, NJ: Great news!  So far things appear to be moving forward with the township, zoning board, and our meeting with the mayor last week.  At this point, I have two main requests:
1. Financial Support: We have some exciting plans for this property that would allow us to reach into the local community, while serving the needs of the Church members.  The total project is estimated to cost around $700K.  If God has placed it in your heart to support financially, please click HERE or email us at finance@sachurch.org.
2. Prayers: Keep on praying for clarity on God’s will for St. Anianus Church, as we have a meeting scheduled tomorrow morning.
