Jesus said in Matthew 12 that our mouth speaks what is in our heart. When you think of the term “4 Letter Words”, usually words come to mind that are derogatory or demeaning. But God wants to remake us and replace what is foul with what is freeing. Join us as we look at the FOUR LETTER WORDS that will transform your heart and life.

Paul Clark Resigns
Paul’s official duties as Executive Minister will be wrapping up this week. The demands of leading a growing law office and a very busy Third City Christian Church could not be sustained. We have a plan that will allow us to function in the interim period until his successor can be called.
Paul has done a great job for us in the very short time he was part time in our midst! Please keep he and Sarah in your prayers as they serve the Lord as “civilians” for Christ in our church. They love Third City and are excited about serving here. Your prayers are also coveted for our church as we seek a successor for the role of Executive Minister.
Why You Should Attend The 2018 GLS
God has called each of us to influence others! Whether you are a parent or a grandparent, a supervisor or a small business owner, an elder in the church or a student coach, a teacher or a college student, a sales rep or a medical professional, a police officer or a city manager - every Christian is called to be an influencer.
The Global Leadership Summit is a two-day event designed to maximize a person’s leadership footprint. You will be inspired, challenged, moved emotionally, convicted and you will change by attending the summit!
How good is this event? After our first ever hosting of the GLS last year, many of those who attended in 2017 have registered again this year! Go to thirdcitychristian.org/gls and register today!
Third City Partnering With
Missions Of Hope International
We are excited to announce that the Missions Team is planning to engage our church in what will prayerfully be an epic partnership with Missions of Hope International through Christian Mission Fellowship!
Our goal is to start a school and plant a church in the Kariobangi area of the slums of Nairobi. The experience for our church will begin in earnest with a child sponsorship initiative that will kick off this fall. In addition, the Missions Team is hoping that our Christmas offering will be a huge boost for creating the school’s immediate infrastructure. We are hoping to send a follow-up team to Nairobi in 2019. Please be in prayer for this epic partnership between our church and MOHI!
Fall Sunday Service Update
We are marching toward the all important date of September 9th, when we launch a fourth service. The current need for volunteers remains heavy at the 11:30 AM service and specifically in Groove Kid’s ministry and Guest Ministries. Please pray about this and consider how you can lead and step in to fill whatever gaps exist.
The new service schedule beginning Sunday, September 9th will be:
8:00 AM - Traditional Service in the Well.
9:00, 10:15 & 11:30 AM - Contemporary Services in the Worship Center with Groove in Kid City.
The three biggest areas of opportunity for you to get involved are:
Groove Kid’s Ministry - There are many ways you can serve in this area by loving kids and teaching them the truth of God’s Word. Help is especially needed during the 11:30 AM service.
Contact Taryn Kohmetscher. firstname.lastname@example.org
Parking Team - We are creating a parking crew! Our goal is to fill 16 slots throughout Sunday morning. This team will be essential by assisting people in the parking lot; creating a positive first impression.

Guest Ministries - This provides you with a great opportunity to step into a first serving experience. Use your friendliness to show hospitality to people in a variety of ways.
Contact Lora Quandt. firstname.lastname@example.org
If you currently attend at 9:30, we challenge you to attend the 9:00 service and serve at 10:15 in another ministry during that hour. Likewise, if you currently attend the 11:00 service, would you consider attending at 11:30 and serving at 10:15?
We believe everyone is equipped with unique God-given gifts. We’re all leaders who have something to offer for Kingdom growth. There is a place and a purpose for all of us. As our church grows with the addition of a fourth service, you are invited to join one of our ministry teams. Serving not only reaches others and grows the Kingdom, but it can spark spiritual growth within. Take a step, and join us in BEING Love Unlimited. Stop by our sign-up tables in the Plaza today to get more information and find out how you can serve.
