When we encounter a national tragedy almost everyone - politicians, news anchors, athletes, artists - calls our nation to prayer.  Yet it is rare for people to have the mental and spiritual discipline to pray consistently regardless of circumstances.             We have another opportunity to cultivate the habit of prayer with our Back-to-School Family Prayer Meeting this Sunday.  Aubrey McGowan will lead us in worship, and I'll lead the prayer time. The worship will start at 5:30pm, but you can come at any time.  I anticipate we will be finished around 7pm.  We'll have childcare through age 4.             We are inviting students, teachers, administrators, and school staff to join us, and would love for your family to be here, too. We're not providing food this time, but encourage you to go out with your friends afterwards for fellowship.             Let's prepare our students and teachers spiritually for a great school year by...

For the last eight years the people of CIL have provided backpacks full of school supplies to area elementary, middle school, and high school students. On this ninth year, we feel called to increase the number of backpacks to 260.  To do this, we need your help financially. Gala Johnson's stewardship and hard work have reduced the cost of each backpack to $20  (in previous promotions, we stated it was $25/ backpack, the cost in the past).  How many backpacks can you buy?  One for $20?  Ten for $200?  My family is going to sponsor 5 backpacks for $100.  I am asking you to prayerfully consider how many backpacks you can purchase.  I believe God has called every backpack to have a sponsor so that we can reach more families than ever before. To sponsor your backpack(s), click here, and choose "Back-to-School Blessing" on the drop down menu. Thank you for your prayerful consideration of...
