El Boletín Informativo de la Iglesia

Celebrando la Recuperación
Te invitamos a venir y compartir del poder de sanidad de Dios todos los Viernes a las 6:30 pm.  Encontrarás que eres bienvenido(a) por otras personas que cada semana vienen a recuperarse de sus dolores, hábitos y complejos. La Iglesia  Kissimmee Christian Church se alegra de anunciar el inicio de Lugar de Celebración para Niños desde 5to grado y Lugar de Mini Celebración para las edades de 3 y 4 añitos. El Lugar de Ce-lebración  ayuda e inspira a los niños con esperanza y gozo a través de actividades divertidas y aprendiendo a descansar en Jesús. Por favor ven temprano para que tengas suficiente tiempo de llevar a tu niño a su clase y de subir para el tiempo de Adoración que brinda Celebrar la Recuperación, que comienza a las 6:30 pm. 
Estudios de Pasos a Seguir para Celebrar la Recuperacion
Celebrando la Recuperación es un ministerio donde aplicas los 8 principios bíblicos basados en las beatitudes, permitiendo que el Señor trabaje en nosotros proveyendo Su poder de sanidad. Este studio ayudará a las personas a cambiar espiritualmente trabajando con principios bíblicos. Si estás interesado en trabajar en tus heridas, hábitos y complejos, favor de firmar en la mesa de conección  para unirte a este nuevo grupo de studio. Las clases comenzarán el domingo 5 de Febrero.  Libros 1 al 4. Damas comienzan a las 9:30 en la oficina de Jim y los caballeros a las 11:00 am en el cuarto   205.

¿No Te Pierdas Las Bendiciones De Servir
A veces, en nuestro fervor bíblico para enfatizar que la salvación no es por obras, no somos capaces de apreciar plenamente que hemos sido salvados para hacer buenas obras (Efesios 2:10). De hecho, Dios te ha colocado en tu iglesia con el fin de que tú puedas ser edificado, de modo que puedas trabajar y servirle. Si nos permitimos seguir siendo sedentarios esto significa que estamos descuidando el mismo propósito de Dios para nuestra salvación y de otros. Al servir, sigues y te comportas como Jesús y con eso también lo glorificamos. Si usted está interesado en servir como líder de una célula, coordinador de voluntarios, equipo de bienvenido o en cualquier capacidad, por favor, marque el lado reverso de la tarjeta de asistencia y díganos en que área de servicio le gustaría participar o contáctese con Pastor Tom Martínez al 407.556.5016 o

Mujeres en Quietud
