Crestview Newsletter 6/2/2016

Psalm 32
We are in motion this month!  Allow me to give a brief summary.  (More details below in the newsletter.  Sunday, June 5th, (this Sunday) those who would like are going to ride their bikes from church toValmont Park following the service, maybe further to join up with the community Bike and Hike celebration.  Wednesday, June 8th, we have our first neighborhood barbecue at 6:00pm - invite your neighbors to hang with us.  Sunday, June 12thwe begin worship service at 9:30am for the summer and we will be having a special message that day entitled, What I learned about Jesus from Tandem Riding.  My tandem racing partner, Devin DeBoer will be with us that day.  Saturday June 18th, there is a Move-in Party at the Quists as all the Quists make a final move into their new home beginning at 9:00am.  Wednesday June 22nd, we are hosting at Crestview a community Bike to Work Day dinner/celebration beginning at 5:00pm.  Jump on board with us as we engage our neighbors with the love of Jesus!  
 
This Sunday we will continue with our series on Drawing Near to God as we focus on the practice of Self-Examination/Confession.  As you prepare your heart for worship Sunday, read Psalm 32.  When you read the Psalm, think about these questions: Is God sitting ready to 'judge' us waiting for us to sin/fail?  Or is he standing ready to love us and bless us with forgiveness?  Another interpretation for the word 'blessed' is 'happy'.  Read the first two verses with the word happy instead of blessed - change anything for you?  As you read the Psalm, simply list the characteristics of the one who does not confess.  Then list the characteristics of the one who does confess.  Which list looks better to you?  See you Sunday!

Boulder Bike Tour this Sunday
A few folks will be leaving straight from church this comingSunday (June 5th) to ride the B360, a bike tour of Boulder's bike paths. 14 and 23 mile routes. Ice cream afterwards. Suitable for all ages.  Contact the Needys (tneedy63@yahoo.com or eleneedy@yahoo.com) if that sounds like fun! 

New Start Time for Sunday Worship
Thank you all for responding to the survey put out in May asking about changing the start time for the worship service.  The result is that next Sunday, June 12thwe will begin worship service at 9:30am for the rest of the summer.   

Children's Sunday School
Our (wonderful) Sunday School program is now ended for the summer months.  See everyone in the Fall. 

Summertime Barbecue next Wednesday, June 8
The waiting is over!  This coming Wednesday (June 8), at 6pm, we will meet on the patio for our first barbecue of the summer.  Hamburgers, hot dogs, vegi-burgers, buns, condiments and lemonade provided. Please bring a dish to share--if you don't have a dish to share, come anyway :)  This is always a time of good food, games, and great fellowship.  Come join the fun and bring your neighbors!

Quist Family Move-in Party, June 18
Yes, the long-awaited, much anticipated, hard worked for EVENT is almost upon us!  At 9:00am on Saturday, June 18, the Crestview Family (that's you) will converge at the Was-Madison-House-is-now-the-Quist-Home to unload the moving van, eat donuts, and celebrate the Lord's goodness.

Special Barbecue Outreach on June 22
June 22 is Bike to Work day.  It also means biking home, and Crestview wants to take advantage of an outreach opportunity.  We're an official Bike-to-Work site, inviting cyclists to stop by Crestview for our summertime BBQ!  It will be a casual way for Crestview members to show our love to people in our community.  Remember: our number one strength in the Healthy Church survey was Loving Relationships.  Let's show this love in a big way!  ONE IMPORTANT CHANGE FOR JUNE 22:  We will begin our BBQ at 5pm, not 6pm, since cyclists will be leaving work at that time.  So please bring your side dishes and desserts - AND BRING EXTRA - to share along with burger, brats and veggie burgers.  If you have questions, contact Eleanor Needy, Margaret VanAndel or Jackie LaMaire.

Congregational Meeting
Please mark your calendars to attend the congregational Meeting on Sunday, June 26 right after the service.  

Pastor Mark Installation Celebration
On Sunday, July 17, Mark Quist will be officially installed as pastor of Crestview Church.  Add this to your calendar and plan on attending this service to praise God for His mercy and blessings on our Fellowship through His gift to us of the Quist Family. 

Sign up for Crestview camping!
July 29-31 in beautiful Golden Gate State Park, just 50 minutes drive from Boulder.  If camping isn’t your thing, then plan to come for the day on Saturday. All you will miss is 2 nights of questionable sleep. There will be vaguely organized activities during the day on Saturday, all accessible straight from the campsite (hiking, biking (road and mountain), fishing and of course hanging out at camp). We will have our Crestview service in God’s amazing outdoors around 5pm on Saturday.  Crestview will cover the cost of the campsite, you will be responsible for the park entry fee ($7 per day). Invite your outdoor loving neighbors!
Email Eleanor to reserve your spot. (eleneedy@yahoo.com) ……….first come, first served. (Include number of people, number of vehicles, currently we have tent only sites – let me know if a camper/RV site is needed)
