Deeper Roots – 2018 Theme

Deeper Roots – 2018 Theme

Grow DEEP – Live TALL

Thriving churches are full of thriving people. Yet for things to thrive, especially in the desert, the roots must go deep. Longing for growth is natural. (What kid doesn’t want to be just a little taller?) But growing tall begins with growing deep. If you long to grow in your relationship with God and to sink your roots deeper in His kingdom, then we invite you to join us at Continental. We’re aiming to grow deeper this year!

Maybe you have noticed how Christians today are becoming shallow. Sure, we love Jesus, love church, love our Christian friends. But we stay pretty superficial, even with God. We sing our alleluias and say our amens; then we go home and live largely separate from God. The problem is we do not even realize how dry our roots are. We need to a new hunger for God’s word, a new commitment to His work, and new passion for prayer. No one can stand tall who has not planted his roots deep. We need to recover some depth to our Christianity, now more than ever.

KJV Psalm 1:3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

Martial Arts Club

Martial Arts Club

 Saturdays 8:30-10:30am

*Drop-in Sessions are only $5 per class

*Meets at the Coyote Trail Elementary School Cafe (Get Directions)

*Each session will include a brief Bible/character lesson

*Enrollment at the Door (Print Registration Form now)

Instructor Introduction:

My name is Salvador Magallanes (Sifu Magallanes). I am a Kung Fu practitioner and a 4th grade teacher for the Marana School District. I have been practicing martial arts for over 20 years. I am a certified black belt in Chaun Shu (Art of the fist). Chaun Shu consists of Kenpo, Tai Chi, Northern Silum, and San Soo.

Program:

This program is offered to children ages 6 and up on a drop-in basis at $5 per session.  Parents are welcome to stay and watch (no additional fee) or to join in on the fun if they wish to do so. This program will challenge your child physically and mentally. Your child will learn the art of self-defense, sparring, weapons, and katas (forms). All of these disciplines will be taught under the umbrella of responsibility, respect, and safety. In our effort to develop the whole child, a weekly lesson on character and discipline drawing upon the wisdom of the Bible will be taught. All students are expected to arrive on time and to be picked up on time unless special arrangements have been made with the instructor. (Additional fees will apply.)

Belt Promotion:

There are no GIs required to join the program. However, if your child wants to move up in belt order, a GI is required. GIs will be available for purchase, as will any other items related to a belt promotion (i.e. belts and/or certificates). If your child already has a GI, then he/she will not need to purchase a new one. If your child has any equipment from a previous dojo he/she may use it. If your child is attending another dojo, he/she is still welcome to join this one.

Thank you and feel free to contact me, if you have further questions.

Be Refreshed!

Be Refreshed!

Life can be a desert, so we need to be refreshed!

There is no better place to find real refreshment than at church. Here we meet Jesus, who is still the best answer to our questions and the only solution to our problems. It is amazing how a book written nearly two millennia again speaks so clearly to our needs today. We invite you to take a load off your feet and off your mind with us this Sunday.

Do look our website over, but there’s no substitute for seeing us in person. We are more than words and pictures. We are real people seeking to make a big deal about Jesus Christ. I hope you will do us the kindness of dropping by this Sunday. I understand that you have many choices in NW Tucson/Marana when it comes to worship, but I think you will find our church refreshing. We’re not about hype but about offering real hope in Jesus.

It would be easier to stay home this Sunday, but everyone who now attends is glad they didn’t.

Give us a visit this weekend. I’ll be looking for you!

Home Study Groups

Home Study Groups

Some of the sweetest times of fellowship and spiritual growth happen in our small groups. It’s a chance for both ladies and men to sink their roots deeper in Christ and in His Church. Presently, the ladies and men alternate  every other Weds. at 7pm. Ladies meet the 1st and 3rd Weds. of each month and Men meet the 2nd and 4th Weds. (These are home-based studies. Call or email the church for location.)

Our Spring sessions are already underway. Books are available for each group for personal study. The sessions allow for interaction and comment on what has been learned. You are welcome to jump in at any time!

In January, the Ladies’ group is studying 1 Peter with the “Workmen of the Word” Series by Linda Lindley.

 

 

 

Men are studying “The Trellis and the Vine” by Colin Marshall and Tony Payne. The book takes another look at how we do church and asks us to consider a new paradigm based on the teaching of Jesus and His apostles.
