  • soup
  • pasta and pasta sauce

Where can I drop off donations?

We have a large green “trash can” decorated for food donations in the lobby. Also we’re offering some contribution forms if you’d prefer to give money instead of food.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”VISIT THEIR WEBSITE” style=”outline-custom” outline_custom_color=”#54c8e7″ outline_custom_hover_background=”#54c8e7″ outline_custom_hover_text=”#ffffff” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fhphh.org||target:%20_blank|” el_class=”button-text hidden”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Home Harvest Fest!

Home Harvest Fest | Meridian Point Church

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]The past few weeks you may have heard us talk about doing a Home Harvest Fest as a church in our communities. If you’re new to Meridian Point Church this is a great opportunity to get plugged in and connect by joining one of the Home Harvest Fest that will be going on.

When it comes to Outreach many times we can get caught up in focusing on bringing people into our building. Which at times is great, but there are other times when it is more effective for God’s Kingdom if we go into our communities. The Home Harvest Fest give us that opportunity to go into our neighborhoods and share Christ with those that live around us. We’re encouraging all Life Groups to participate in this event. If every Life Group participates it will allow us to cover most of the Falcon Communities.

So often we wish that we would have an opportunity to be able to talk with our neighbors to invite them to church or share Jesus with them. The Home Harvest Fest gives us that opportunity. Many of your neighbors will be out, walking around with their families, coming to your house for candy. You don’t even have to leave your house to share Jesus with someone, they’ll be coming to you! 

This is our third year doing the Home Harvest Fest and a few ideas that some of the groups have had that allowed for conversations was to serve hot dogs or hot chocolate to the parents. One group did s’mores in the drive way, it was awesome to see conversations being started about Meridian Point Church around a fire pit and marshmallows.

The idea is to throw the biggest and best party in your neighborhood. You don’t need the big carnival games to have a great time. Here’s a link to help you plan some fun games for your Home Harvest Fest:

If you’re not involved in a LifeGroup or are looking for a way to get connected with Meridian Point Church come speak with me (Dave Laubscher) and I’ll help you find a Home Harvest Fest to be involved with.

Life Group leaders please e-mail dave@meridianpoint.church if your group is hosting a Home Harvest Fest. I’d like to be able to put a map together of the different groups and post them on the Falcon Facebook page.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”REGISTER ONLINE” style=”outline-custom” outline_custom_color=”#54c8e7″ outline_custom_hover_background=”#54c8e7″ outline_custom_hover_text=”#ffffff” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fmeridianpoint.churchcenteronline.com%2Fregistrations%2Fevents%2F87042||target:%20_blank|” el_class=”button-text”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row]

A Big Change to the E-newsletter

A Big Change to the E-newsletter | Meridian Point Church

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

Where to find what you’re looking for

All our information about upcoming events, announcements, and ways to get involved are available in our Church App and on our website. We’ve added our entire weekly bulletin in the app. Tap on “Bulletin” and go to the Announcement section to view upcoming events and announcements with quick links to register, contact event organizers, and other ways to get involved. Content in this section gets updated regularly throughout the week.

Push Notifications

A push notification is a message that gets sent to you from the app. It notifies you of event updates, daily sermon series homework, and special announcements. For major changes like cancelations to events, we’ll send a push notification to inform you. Tap on “More” at the bottom right of the app, then go to “Notification Categories” to view the categories you can enable or disable.

Recent Messages

Upon receiving the survey back from many in our congregation, we’ve made a simple way to listen to the most recent messages in our current series. On a tablet, go to “This Week” at the very top left (phones will view this section automatically upon opening the app). Just under the “I’m New” section is the “Current Series” section. Tap to view the menu to listen to the most recent message and see information about the series and upcoming message next Sunday. All Sunday messages get uploaded on Mondays and Tuesdays.

What’s Happening With The E-news

So there are a lot of changes coming to the e-newsletter because we’ve discovered that the best way to stay connected and see details concerning events and announcements is though our app.

The Content

A majority of event information and announcements are being moved out of the e-newsletter because of the easy access made available in the app and our website. So from now on, the E-newsletter will focus on more “e-newsletter” type content instead. From time to time, we’ll still highlight special announcements, events, and ways to get involved. We’ll also continue to include links to take you to our website for events and other important information.

The Schedule

The e-newsletter will start being sent out twice a month instead of weekly.

Our Goal for the E-newsletter

We want to use the e-newsletter as an additional method of encouragement instead of just another avenue for announcements and events. Our staff will be posting thoughts, lessons learned, and spiritual challenges to help us all grow in our relationship with God. We’re hoping that this change will allow us to minister to you and your family in one more relevant way.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”SIGN UP FOR THE E-NEWSLETTER” style=”outline-custom” outline_custom_color=”#54c8e7″ outline_custom_hover_background=”#54c8e7″ outline_custom_hover_text=”#ffffff” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fmeridianpoint.church%2Fe-newsletter%2F|||” el_class=”button-text”][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_custom_heading text=”Download The App” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”13260″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” link=”https://goo.gl/cxgh4k”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”13261″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”https://goo.gl/C5eFeA”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row]

The Biggest Church App Update Yet!

church app update

[vc_row gap=”30″][vc_column][vc_column_text]It’s here! It’s finally happened! This is a HUGE update to our church app so be sure to download it and view the changes that have taken place. Here recently I’ve asked the church to take a survey to tell me what you’re looking for in the app and to see how best to display our information for easy access. I believe this update will do exactly that!

APPLE USERS

iPhone users can do an update through the App Store.

ANDROID USERS

Anyone with a Google phone or Android device will need to delete the church app from their device and then re-download it through Google Play.

FEEDBACK

I would love to hear from you as to what you think of the update and if the reorganization of the app is efficient and helpful to you, or if you have ideas for more content or items to be added.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_custom_heading text=”Download the App” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”13260″ img_size=”full” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/meridian-point-church/id1058107768?mt=8″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”13261″ img_size=”full” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.echurchapps.meridianpointapp&hl=en”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”Email Nate” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_row_inner gap=”30″][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”4137″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”3/4″][vc_column_text][NEXForms id=”7″ ][/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
