October One Thing: Family Portraits

octonething-webrotator_1840x850

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 brianne.cowan@iamembrace.com to volunteer at one of the photo shoot locations!

September One Thing: Next Cup is on Me

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!

Hey Embrace!

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.

See you Sunday!

July One Thing: Clothe Your Neighbor As Yourself

Each month, we focus on doing One Thing as a church to show the love of Christ to others. This month, we are partnering with Clothe Your Neighbor As Yourself, which is a nonprofit organization that helps provide education to vulnerable children in developing countries via the required school uniform. As a church, it’s our goal to send 750 children to school! Please swing by their booth at the One Thing area in any lobby to watch their virtual reality video which shows you what it will be like to sit in class next to the kids you’ve helped!

In October, donors for this One Thing will be given a leather wristband with coordinates of impact, access to CYNY’s new app to, via 360 video, sit in class with the kids they’ve actually sent to school, get ground level updates of impact, see a map of community, and write the kids notes. Thanks for helping us reach our goal!
