Women’s Empowerment Conference in Pakistan
Six months after the devastating monsoonal floods hit Pakistan, the region is still reeling from the effects. Millions are still displaced living without food, water and shelter. Food for the Hungry Tribes Pakistan is hoping to relieve some of this burden by organizing a women’s conference this February to bring encouragement, training and financial support to those in need. Please stop by their booth in the lobby after the service.

Please also consider giving a donation to help in a tangible way. Even a small amount can provide one family with food, water, and shelter. You may donate online at https://www.feedthehungrytribes.org/donate-us or make your check payable to ‘Clearwater Church’ with ‘Pakistan Women’s Conference’ in the memo.

Youth Game Night
Sunday, January 22, 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. in the Game Room. Middle Schoolers and High Schoolers, join us for dinner and a game night. Games ranging from pool, ping-pong, and foosball to Poetry for Neanderthals, the Resistance and Gestures. Please RSVP by Thursday, January 19th to zacha@clearwaterfc.org.

Newcomers’ Lunch
Sunday, January 29, right after the service in the Dining Room. Are you new to Clearwater and would like to know more information about the church and how to get involved? Come join us for a light lunch, meet some of the pastors, and let’s get to know one another! Sign up at the Sign-Up Table in the lobby to let us know you’re coming.

Vision Night
Join Randy and Hans for dessert and an informative discussion about the 2023 vision and direction for Clearwater Church on Sunday, February 5, from 6:00 – 7:15 p.m. Childcare will be provided for kids ages 1-5. Sign up in the lobby for childcare.

Men’s Steak Out
Join us on Saturday, February 11, from 9:00 – 11:30 a.m. for a fun, informative and interactive men’s breakfast! We’ll enjoy steak and eggs as we discuss the direction for our Men’s Ministry. We’ll also gain a better understanding of how we were made in God’s image­–dangerous and adventurous. Cost is $10.

Parents’ Night Out-Reach
Ask any parent in the Fort Collins area what one of their biggest parenting challenges is, and the majority will likely say childcare. Most middle-class families are living paycheck to paycheck and struggling just to get by with little to nothing left over for parent self-care and fun. As an outreach to Axis school, Clearwater will be providing childcare for our very first Parents’ Night Out on Saturday, February 11, from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, young adult, or youth, would you consider helping with this outreach? Childcare experience is not required. All that’s needed is a passion for sharing God’s love with your community (and we will need to do a background check). Sign up at the Sign-Up Table in the lobby. Email Kim at kimp@clearwaterfc.org with questions.

Small Group Launch
At Clearwater, we believe that God designed us to thrive in community. If you are not already in a small group, we are launching new groups February 12. All our groups are focused on helping you grow in your relationship with God and with others. Sign up at the Sign-Up Table for a small group on February 12.

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.
