Weekly Announcement & Prayer | April 30th – May 7th

We invite you to stay after service for an all church lunch. We will be serving hearty sandwiches and chili.

In celebration of the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, Ron Keller will be starting a new 7-week study starting on May 9th at 7:00 P.M.

Men, don’t miss the next Men’s Breakfast, this Saturday at 8:00 A.M. Join us for delightful food, our study on The Gospel at Work, and prayer. Please read chapters 4-5.

Moms and Daughters! We will be having a Mother’s Day Tea on May 6th from 10:00 to 12:30. Lunch will be provided! A sign-up sheet is on the back table.

If you have to miss a Sunday, be sure to look on the ICC website for that week’s announcements and prayer requests (irvinecommunitychurch.org).

Take a look at the tract rack in the hallway near the front doors. There will you find brochures to share the gospel and to let others know about ICC. Pick up a supply to carry in your pocket, purse, car, etc. Also, by the front entrance is a display of “mini books” on many topics people are dealing with. The books give counsel from God’s Word. They are free.

If you come early and leave late on Sunday mornings and park in the area striped for a parking spot in front and a parking spot behind, please pull up to the forward space so that someone can use the space behind you.

The darling flowers are donated by The Bogstads – In memory of our Baby Jesse’s heavenly birthday.

“But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.”
– Ephesians 2:13(ESV)
