Core Fellowship Volunteer Dinner! Sunday September 13th

You are invited to dinner on Sunday, September 13th at Christian Miller’s home. We are looking for volunteers for Core Fellowship, and we will talk about the various ways we need help for the following levels:

Level 1

People who are committed to showing up most nights – it is very helpful to have Bible study members who are committed to coming to Core as we build relationships with our brothers and sisters.

Level 2

People who are willing to serve in ways, such as the following:

  • Help plan, host or attend events like game nights, movie nights, hiking, volleyball, beach trips etc.
  • Help on the sound team.
  • Help Emcee.
  • Serve on the hospitality team (greeting, helping organize snacks etc.).
  • Publicity.

Level 3

This is the most rewarding level and gives you an opportunity to lead, but may take a bit more of your time. We need leaders in all areas, including:

  • Table leaders.
  • Event Planning.
  • Serving on the Core Team to help plan or lead people on Level 2.

What? Volunteer Dinner!

When? Sunday September 13th at 6:00 PM

Where? Christian’s home, 1134 Glenn Ave., San Jose CA

If you are interested, just show up. But if you plan to help out with the volunteer dinner, email Christian to help plan for the amount of food to prepare: Christian@cjmillerengineering.com.

Dinner and a Seminar at Church on the Hill

Click here to register for this event:
http://existence.eventbrite.com

You are invited to a complimentary evening with dinner and a seminar Sunday June 7th at 5:30. Dr. David Eckman, the Senior Lecturer of Becoming What God Intended Ministries, will share truths that will completely change your perspective on yourself and others:

What is the Purpose of Your Existence? 
Why the Trinity Needs You

What? A two-hour seminar by Dr. Eckman hosted by Core Fellowship from Church on the Hill. We will serve you a complimentary dinner of lasagna, salad, bread and refreshments. Please sign up so we know how much to cook.

This is a dinner and seminar for you to enjoy. Dr. Eckman will briefly discuss his ministry which is helping train Christian leaders and pastors internationally by providing them with powerful, Christ centered training tools – donations are appreciated but please only contribute if you feel led.

When? Sunday June 7th from 5:30 -8:30 PM (seminar starts at 6:30 PM)

Where? Church on the Hill

Cost? Free! – Please sign up by obtaining a ticket Sunday at Church on the Hill or by registering on line at: http://existence.eventbrite.com

Details of the seminar: Many individuals in this world live lives of quiet desperation. Sometimes Christians feel uncomfortably out of place in this world, but they may also feel insignificant in God’s plan. “When we speak of being significant,” says Dr. Eckman, “we are not talking about being proud, but being Biblical. You are significant!” We invite you to experience truths that transform. Here are some of the topics for the evening, covering “What is the Purpose of Your Existence?”

1) Why you are wanted.

2) The Trinity has a great purpose for you.

3) You answer the question of the ages.

4) It’s much less about what you do than WHO you are to God the Father.
