Together In Service 2021

February

 

Love will be our Stewardship theme in February as we continue our Together In Service 2021 campaign. We plan to show our love in a Biblical sense; showing compassion, sharing our blessings, and meeting the needs of our brothers and sisters who are struggling.

 

We will be showing and sharing love to Child Crisis Arizona and to the Disciples of Christ Week of Compassion initiative.

 

Child Crisis Arizona

 

On Saturday, February 20th, we will be hosting a Drive-Thru at the church to benefit Child Crisis Arizona. We will be collecting items most needed: Diapers sizes 4,5 & 6, and baby wipes. Items can be dropped off between 9AM and 1PM.

 

Week of Compassion  “Let Love Flow”

 

When you share your gifts to Week of Compassion, you “Let Love Flow.” Your generosity ensures that, even in the midst of uncertainty, the transforming power of compassion continues to change the world.

 

Special Week of Compassion elements will be included in our February worship services. 

 

Thank you for joining Coolwater in showing our love to Child Crisis Arizona and the Week of Compassion!

Together In Service 2021

 

One of the most beautiful sights of Christmas is all the glittering lights. From neighbor’s beautifully decorated homes to a simple, lighted special ornament on our tree, an ordinary setting is magically transformed into a scene that lifts our spirits and builds a sense of anticipation.

 

Alas, the lights have been turned off, taken down, and put away for another year. But the Good News is that the light of Christ within each of us is never turned off, regardless of the season. It is the light that burns brighter than any Christmas light.

 

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 

Matthew 5: 14-15

 

The Financial Stewardship program for Coolwater Christian Church is Together In Service 2021.

 

Together, we plan to actively be a shining light to our local community by providing monthly Outreach projects.

 

Together, we plan to actively support our Disciples denomination’s Moments for Mission.

 

Together, we plan to fully underwrite our 2021 budget with the loving gifts from members and Friends of Coolwater and be fiscally responsible with our building upkeep and utilization.

 

Together, we plan to continue our search for a permanent pastor and financially prepare for their calling.

 

Together, we understand that we are the light of the world and that God’s light shines through us to those all around us.

 

Your financial support is vital to Coolwater as we enter into 2021. We encourage you to make your light shine by making a financial pledge to our stewardship campaign.

 

Pledges can be made by filling out and returning the enclosed financial pledge card or going to our website coolwaterchurch.org, navigating to our Together In Service page, and clicking on the online financial pledge link.

 

Thank you for your service and financial support to Coolwater! May we rejoice in God’s ability to use all of us to His glory as we let His light within each of us shine!

 

Blessings to All this Christmas Season and Happy New Year,

January 2021 Outreach

On January 23rd, Coolwater hosted a very successful Drive-Thru food drive benefitting Foothills Food Bank & Resource Center.


In addition to the food and paper products donated, we also collected over $500 in cash donations.


In partnership with other area food banks, Foothills Food Bank will be able to purchase additional food items at prices much lower than what is available to the general public. Often times, the Food Bank will be able to purchase 2-3 items at the price the public would pay for one.


"Thank You!" to our Outreach Team and the church members who gave of their time and energy to work at the Drive-Thru and receive the donations. The work of the volunteers and those who donated have made a positive difference in the lives of those in our community who are facing food insecurity.
