Immanuel Church Fujairah Celebrating Ten Years

This week we have the opportunity to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Immanuel Church in Fujairah. Immanuel Church is in the United Arab Emirates. Fujairah is an industrial emirate with lots of gospel need. Ten years ago, Steve Jennings planted the church, and we were able to join in partnership several years ago. Most recently, Jesse Brannen became their pastor. Since the pandemic, they have been seeking to rebuild.

This weekend, pastor Juan will be with them to help them celebrate ten years. Would you pray for this celebration- that the Lord would be honored and that the church may be encouraged and strengthened? Pray also for the first ever theology conference on Saturday that will gather to encourage local pastors.

High Pointe, thank you for your generosity through your regular giving.

Robert Baldwin Retirement Recognition Celebration
We finally have the opportunity to recognize and honor Pastor Robert Baldwin for his 24 years of faithful service at High Pointe. Instead of our normal prayer service on Sunday night October 8, we will gather at 5:00 PM to show our thankfulness to God and appreciation for Robert and Shirley. We want to look back on their time at High Pointe with thanksgiving and encourage them in their new season of life and ministry together.

We hope you will make a special effort to join us for this occasion. We look forward to gathering to enjoy an evening of fellowship together as a church.

Note: There will be no childcare. We will all enjoy food and fellowship together.

Sunday Evening Rhythms at High Pointe
From the beginning, the early church met on the Lord’s Day for distinctly Christian worship. The Lord’s Day is Sunday or the first day of the week. Why this day? Because it was the day Jesus rose from the dead. On this day, the first Christians devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, gathering in homes, eating meals together, and observing the Lord’s Supper.

It is for these same reasons, that we gather on Sundays as a church. During our morning gathering we focus on the apostles’ teaching through reading, singing, praying, preaching, and seeing the word. But that’s not the only time we gather. We also gather informally from house to house in Life Groups on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Sunday evenings. Then, on the 2nd and 4th Sunday evenings at 5:00 PM, we gather at the church building to pray together as a church.

As we begin a new church year together, I want to encourage us to make time to begin and end the Lord’s Day together as a church. For more information about our Sunday evening rhythms, click on the links below:

Prayer Gathering (2nd and 4th Sundays at 5:00 PM)
Sunday night prayer gatherings are our family nights. That’s when we not only pray for one another, our city, our state, our world, but we also learn about one another. Make every effort to join us as we pray together as a church.

Children’s Catechism Class for 3 year olds – 5th Graders (2 and 4th Sundays at 5:00 PM)
While parents are praying together, our children are learning God’s word and biblical truths through a question and answer method. To register for our CCC, click HERE.

Life Groups (1st, 3rd, and 5th Sundays)
Life Groups (LGs) exist to provide a relational context in which High Pointe members can help one another to follow Christ. LGs are small groups of High Pointe members (and those in the membership process) who have committed themselves to regularly meet together for the purpose of discipleship.

For more information on Life Groups or to request to join a group, click HERE.

KidsPointe on Sunday Mornings, During our Morning Worship Gathering!
We’re studying the Bible together using The Gospel Story, where we're taking a detailed look at how each Bible story, starting in the Old Testament, connects to God’s plan of redemption through Jesus. Each K-5th grader attending must be registered for this school year or have a visitor contact slip completed upon drop-off. To serve in KidsPointe, please contact Erin Wyman. At this time, we are looking for just one more small group helper to serve on 2nd Sundays.

Giving at High Pointe
God is generous, and so he calls us to be as well. What we do with what God has given us shows the world where our hearts are and helps proclaim the gospel. We want to glorify God in every area of our lives, including what we do with our finances. But as you may have noticed, we do not take up a collection on Sundays at High Pointe. Consequently, we’ve been receiving questions as to how to give. There are several ways you may give:
  1. Offering Boxes in Auditorium – You may place your offering in an offering box.
  2. Mail – You may mail your contribution to the church office.
  3. Text/Online – You may give by texting 84321 (it will require a first-time setup).
  4. Your Bank – You may give through your own bank via Bill Pay or ACH.

If you have any questions, go to this LINK. Our financial staff is also available to help or answer your questions. You may call the church office at 512-837-7725.
