Crestview Newsletter 3/31/2016

 Romans 11:33-12:3
Here we go! The after Easter journey of Dying and Rising in Jesus Christ begins.  My prayer is that Jesus life would become more and more our life as we listen to the Holy Spirit lead us further into 2016.  Our next series will be Drawing Near to God.  We will focus on the Classic Spiritual Disciplines that have been part of the Christian Community for centuries in growing in faith.  This Sunday we welcome Dave Dawson and his wife Jenny to Crestview Church.  Dave and Jenny are friends from Grand Junction, CO.  Dave is a fellow elder and partner in Kingdom ministry.  Dave will be bringing us a message from Romans 11:33-12:3 (One of my favorite texts!) entitled, "It's All About God".  Dave will focus on God's desire that we live our lives in the constant presence of God. 
 
In the coming weeks we will explore Prayer and Fasting, Scripture, Discernment, Sabbath, Honoring the Body, and learn how to create a 'Rule of Life'.  Should be exciting and engaging.  
 
I am off to Michigan for spring break with Deone and Anna.  I write this to you from DIA.  See you soon.  Missing my Boulder family already.

Dying and Rising in Christ

What was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ.
What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things.
.
I consider them rubbish that I may gain Christ, and be found in him,...

 
Children's Sunday School 10:15 am
Sunday School this year has been focusing on characters of the Old Testament. Ruth and Jackie have come up with a plan to help Crestview Children learn more in-depth about these characters.  This Sunday, we will be talking about Daniel, and how he is part of God's great big plan.

After the Sunday sermon, please get your coffee and join Dave in the Fellowship Hall Library for a time of reflection and "unpacking" the sermon.

 
Call for Summer Session Young Children's Worship (YCW) Teachers
This is a volunteer position that helps teach valuable lessons to our younger kids during service. We would like to have 4 new teachers for the summer, offering to take one rotating shift per month (flexible). This allows for our gracious school year teachers to re-charge over the summer. If interested, please email Jackie & Ruth at children@crestviewchurch.org

Prayers Please:  Ruth left yesterday (Wednesday) with friends for a trip to Isreal. Please pray that this trip is a great blessing to all in their walk with the Lord. Also pray for safe travel, good hotels, and much good fellowship.

​Praise God for the Tremendous Easter Celebration
Thank you to everyone for being a great disciple of God to our community and our fellow Crestview members!  We were able to share God's love on this blessed day.  There were so many great conversations happening between our members and community guests during the party and fellowship before the egg hunt...that is amazing.  Ruthie and Jackie would like to say a special thank you to everyone who helped with the kids Easter egg hunt and patio party.  We had 40+ kids join us for our first community egg hunt...wow!   God is great!  It was a success because of all your help and His faith in us to host this party.​
 
Dinner for 8 -- Improved
We're making a change to this program!  We had an experimental group of 4 families with children who met last session and we're going to continue to offer this choice.   You'll be able to choose either meeting with Adults Only, Whole Families, or Either of the Above.  Groups of ~8 adults OR ~3 Whole Families meet for dinner once-a-month for 4 months.  Hosting of the dinner rotates among the group, and everyone brings food.  Our purpose is to build deeper relationships.  It’s also an opportunity to invite 1-2 friends you may have been wanting to invite to a Crestview, and here's a chance to introduce them to others from your church in a fun setting.  Sign-ups begin April 3 and end April 24.  Groups meet May - August 2016.  Sign-up HERE or you can contact Muffie VanAndel (303) 444-7036 or margaret.vanandel@gmail.com.


Crestview Financial Status
Please note that February's general fund giving was less than our actual expenses for the month.  As a result, Crestview used some of its reserve funds to pay expenses.  Please prayerfully consider your giving so that Crestview can continue to pay its expenses. If you have questions, please talk to Joe VanAndel or Peter Ruh.

Necklace Found
Heavy chain with wheel of a sailing ship pendent.  Gold-winged bug in the center with the word Go or God above the bug. Perhaps a man's necklace.  If you know the owner, please send email to office@crestviewchurch.org.

 
...not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ--the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith.  I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings becoming like him in his death and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.
