JESUS & CULTURE
Starting Wednesday, October 6th, 6:30pm – 8:00pm
LOCATION: SOUTH Building
Today’s Christian teenagers find themselves living in a culture that is antagonistic to much of what they believe. Against this backdrop, how do they know how to engage with culture in a way that keeps their influence intact, but keeps them from being negatively impacted by the world? The good news is that Jesus had lots to say about this.
By looking at what Jesus had to say about culture Students will understand how to live as Christ-followers in the world they find themselves living in. Students will learn how to embrace being separate from the world but still living in it; how their lives as Christ-followers will be counter-cultural; how they are affected by what they consume of culture through media and entertainment; and that Christ’s ultimate goal for them is to embrace holiness in their interactions with culture.
This week, pray…
MONDAY: (A) ABBA, we lift up our upcoming elections. May our faith in You be our guide.
TUESDAY: (A) ABBA, point out any way we are attached to worldly things and to let go.
WEDNESDAY: (A) ABBA, help is to be wise in Your ways, through Your Word.
THURSDAY: (C) ABBA, help us to be kind to others, showing the love of Christ in all we do.
FRIDAY: (T) ABBA, help is to not be afraid of the changes taking place in the world. You are our salvation.
SATURDAY: (S) ABBA, our leaders need You. They need Your wisdom in their decisions.
SUNDAY: ABBA, give us a desperation for 'our three' who do not know You.
Verse of the week: Ecclesiastes 3:11
“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”

Annual Homeless Aid: October 23rd & 24th, 2021
Each year our church aids the homeless in the Aurora/Denver area by donating items they need for winter. Every year we are asked if we have backpacks and socks. Since we want to be a church for our community we decided to adjust what we typically give to them (blankets and coats). Our goal is to hand out 100 backpacks and 200 pairs of socks. If you can help with this, please place your donation (new or lightly used backpacks and new socks only) into the provided bins in the foyer by Oct 24. Each year we also make no-sew scarves. If your family would like to help with this, come to the north building foyer on Oct 23 from 9-10am. If you would like to help hand out these items to the homeless, please sign up at the 'Get Connected' table. For more information, please talk to anyone in the Bryan Life Group.

Trunk or Treat: October 31st, 2021 5:00pm
COG will be hosting our Trunk-or-Treat event in the COG parking lot on October 31, 2021, from 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm. This promises to be a fun event where we can get together as well as connect with our community.
If you have never been to a trunk-or-treat, it is pretty simple. You bring a vehicle to COG (decorated or undecorated), maybe wear a costume, bring lots of treats, and hand out the goodies to our little guests.
For those with little ones, you can show up with your kiddos to walk a lap or two around the parking lot to gather treats. We encourage you to invite your friends and neighbors.
Here are some guidelines for us to follow to help make sure the event is enjoyable for everyone:
- If you are handing out treats, be on site by 4:45 pm on Oct 31. You can come as early as you need to decorate and set up your vehicle.
- We are asking you to keep decorations and costumes in good taste and kid-friendly.
- Treats must be store purchased/sealed. No homemade treats.
- If you are not decorating a vehicle and are bringing kids for the event, please park on Flanders Street. The parking lot will be closed off to traffic at 4:45 pm for the safety of everyone.
- We will have prizes for the best-decorated vehicles.
- Have fun! Be welcoming and inviting to those with whom we interact during the event.
Let's make this a great opportunity to get to know our community. If you have any questions, email Pastor Chris.
