November One Thing: Mission Haiti
Each month, Embrace focuses on doing One Thing as a church to show the love of Christ to others. For the month of November we’re offering the opportunity to sponsor kids through Mission Haiti, some of which are at the Ambrase Lekol (Embrace School) in Jabouin. Your sponsorship provides children and teens education, school supplies, deworming and for many, the only meal they’ll get for the day. Please consider sponsoring today. THANK YOU.
October One Thing: Family Portraits
For the month of October, we’re collecting 8×10 picture frames and partnering with local ministries to provide family portraits for those in need.
A family portrait is a luxury that many of the families cannot afford. Our hope is to provide professional quality photos, printed and framed for them to take home for free.
Want to join us in this One Thing? Please drop off a nice 8×10 frame at the One Thing area anytime during the month of October or contact Bri at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer at one of the photo shoot locations!
September One Thing: Next Cup is on Me
September One Thing
Next Cup is on Me
Each month, we do One Thing as a church to show the love of Christ to others. In all our One Thing areas, we have $5 gift cards to local coffee shops available for you to purchase. Buying a cup of coffee for someone is an awesome way to make their day! Simply buy a gift card and give it to a co worker, friend, neighbor or stranger. Either give the gift card to them as a gift or extend an invitation to go grab a cup of coffee with them. Our hope is to give out 1,500 gift cards this month!

4 Reasons To Come To Church This Sunday!
I am so excited to jump back into preaching again this Sunday! Here are 4 reasons for you, yes you, to come to church:
#1 I’ve got super exciting to news to share with you about some huge things happening at our current campuses and also… about a brand new campus! Don’t miss it.
#2 We’re starting up one of my favorite message series of the year called The Party! I had a good cry several times as I worked on this message just thinking about the heart of God toward us. I’m continuing to pray that God moves in a powerful way this summer.
#3 If you have ever felt broken or feel like you’ve wandered from God, this message is for you!
#4 Know anyone in your life who feels lost? Or broken? Or hurting? Invite them and tell them to join you! Seriously, God wants us to bring hope and grace to others! Reach out.
