Welcome To Community Church!This morning we conclude our study of Habakkuk as we look at Habakkuk’s prayer for renewal! Our second offering today joins the efforts of North Godwin Elementary School to bring in their coins to help a school that was flooded near Houston. Let’s give to help those families in Houston who have been affected. This evening Pastor Dave will go deeper looking at what we can learn from this prayer. May God bless our time of worship together.

Picture Directory Update: Time slots to get family pictures taken are filling up nicely, but there are still many who have not chosen a time. If you have not, please choose a time for your family’s professional photo session today. The schedule is located on the counter outside the nursery. A reminder, each family will receive a free 8×10 and a free directory when they come in. You will be offered an opportunity to purchase additional photos, but you are under no obligation to buy.
Volunteers Are Needed to help check families in as they arrive for their photo session. If you are able to help in this area please sign up on the sheet provided on the information table.

Pray For The Persected: For Christians facing Islamic extremists, it means being willing to give up everything for their faith—homes, possessions, and security. It may also mean severe maltreatment and possibly the loss of loved ones, or perhaps giving up their lives. For Christians here in America, it means standing with our brothers and sisters facing persecution while remembering them in our prayers and giving so they may be strengthened and encouraged, helping them survive and serve in the face of ongoing persecution.
