Leaders Needed for Clearwater Kids’ Club
Clearwater Kids’ Club is for our 4th-5th graders who are interested in growing in community and leadership among their peers. They will have a chance to hang out together, play games and practice the current month’s worship songs so they can help lead in class on Sunday mornings. We are looking for parents and volunteers who would love to lead in this once-a-month gathering. Dates and times TBD based off volunteer availability. If interested, please contact Demi at demis@clearwaterfc.org. or Kim at kimp@clearwaterfc.org.

New Men’s Group: Dads with Kids at Home
This group is for any father with kids still living in the house. It will be at the First Watch restaurant on South College at 2809 South College (near the Light Center) on the first Saturday of each month starting October 2. Developing a deep relationship with Jesus will be our primary focus. We’ll meet at 7:00 a.m. on those Saturdays so guys can be home early enough to hang out with family for the rest of the day.

New Men’s Group: ROMEOS – Retired Old Men Eating Out
This is a group for men who are 50 and above who don’t necessarily need to be retired or feel old. We’ll meet first and third Thursday mornings at 7:00 a.m. at the First Watch restaurant at 2809 South College (near the Light Center) starting October 6. Personal spiritual formation will be our primary aim. If you don’t have money for food, just get a coffee and join in the fun!

Prayer Group – “What’s God Doing?”
Love God & Love people. That’s what we’re about here at Clearwater, but where do we begin? Jesus himself did not attempt to do anything on his own during his time here on earth. He does only what he sees the Father doing. John 5:19. And likewise, we can’t even begin to make an impact in our world if we don’t first go to God and let Him lead us. Anyone who is ready to take the love of Jesus beyond our church walls is invited to come. And get ready, this is not your typical prayer group. This is a group that is meant to be a springboard into action as a church!

We will gather once a month in the Loft at Clearwater to seek God in prayer for our church, community, nation, and world. Bring a Bible and notebook and come ready to seek God and wait on his direction during this contemplative time of prayer. Our first gathering will be on Sunday, September 11, from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. Future gatherings will take place on the first Sunday of the month unless otherwise specified. Email Kim at KimP@clearwaterfc.org with questions.

Women’s Bible Study
We will study together People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided. Using Bible Study Fellowships’ four-fold approach, women will answer questions from the Bible in a personal study time and then discuss the passage in a weekly discussion group, listen to teaching on the passage, and then finally read notes that explore the passage further.

Tuesday evenings 7:00 – 8:45 p.m. at Clearwater, in the loft, begins September 13th.

Email Corrine at corrine.knudsen@gmail.com with questions.

Designate Clearwater on Community Rewards
Donate to Clearwater through King Soopers by designating Clearwater Church at King Soopers. It’s so EASY to support Clearwater!

The Kroger Family of Companies is committed to community engagement, positive social impact and charitable giving at the national and local levels. Every community is unique, but our common goal is to partner with the neighborhoods we serve and help the people there live healthier lives.

One of the ways in which we do this is through our King Soopers Community Rewards program. This program makes fundraising easy by donating to local organizations based on the shopping you do every day. Once you link your Card to an organization, all you have to do is shop at King Soopers and swipe your Shopper’s Card. Here’s how it works:

1. Create a digital account.

A digital account is needed to participate in King Soopers Community Rewards. If you already have a digital account, simply link your Shopper’s Card to your account so that all transactions apply toward the organization you choose.

2. Link your card to Clearwater.

Selecting the organization that you wish to support is as simple as updating the King Soopers Community Rewards selection on your digital account.

1. Sign in to your digital account
2. Search for your organization here
3. Enter “Clearwater Church”
4. Select “Clearwater Church, then click “Save”

Your selected organization will also display in the King Soopers Community Rewards section of your account. If you need to review or revisit your organization, you can always do so under your Account details.

3. Your organization earns.

Any transactions moving forward using the Shopper’s Card number associated with your digital account will be applied to the program, at no added cost to you. King Soopers donates annually to participating organizations based on your percentage of spending as it relates to the total spending associated with all participating King Soopers Community Rewards organizations.
