Hello JANES!


There is a lot to read about in this issue, but I just

want to say (even SHOUT, if I may) that I am so

 blessed by the ministry of the BAF women.  

 Kudos to those of you who studied God's Word

 this season and  strengthened your walk with the 

Teacher.  Kudos to those of you who have been

 involved in Outreach Projects in order to bless

 our community and grow your faith in the 

Provider.  Way to go Bevy Teams as you carried

 on the vision to build Christ-centered community

 and sought to create fellowship with the Shepherd

 who calls you by name.  Kudos to the Admin 

Team as you worked to keep this ministry

 organized and running efficiently, all for the 

glory of the Creator (and Organizer)of the universe. 

  And  thanks to all who planned and participated 

in our fun and meaningful Events that brought all 

of our JANES together for the sake of friendship. . .

 in honor of the Friend that sticks closer than a 

brother. You have inspired us and encouraged 

us to keep reaching for all that God has destined 

us to be.  I am truly blessed and so very proud to 

be your servant.


"So in Christ we who are many form one body, and each 

member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, 

according to the grace given us. If a man's gift is 

prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith. If 

it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach;

 if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing 

to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is 

leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, 

let him do it cheerfully."  Romans 12:5-8

Fill the Front!
We've realized that our church is at the size now 
where we need more than just the band leading 
worship. When our members and committed 
attendees sit in the front of the auditorium during 
the worship service, it can generate an enthusiasm
 and spirit of worship that is infectious for the
 entire congregation. We would like to invite all 
of the MOB, JANES and Home Team members 
to make a concerted effort to "fill up the front" 
at every service. Please join us starting this 
  Save the Date!
Get ready for the next JANES Expo on September
 20 - 21st, 2008!  We will be showcasing everything
 that the JANES Women's Ministry has to offer for
 spiritual growth during all of the church services.  
If you would like to get invovled in one of our 
ministries, visit the JANES Blog Site.
JANES You Glo Girl! Conference
On October 10 and 11 (Friday and Saturday), 2008, JANES is so excited to offer you and your 
friends an awesome time with Laurie Cole, a 
premier Bible study author and teacher.  Visit 
Laurie's ministry web page at Priority Ministries  
for more details. 

Grunt Girls and the CWJC BBQ!

The Grunt Girls honored the first graduating class
 of Corpus Christi's Christian Women's Job Corps  
with an awesome BBQ! Pastor Bil and Jessica were
 in attendance along with the CWJC director, Lil 
Abshier. The CWJC graduates brought their families
 to celebrate, and the Grunt Girls were able to 
bless them with fellowship, encouragement and 
fantastic BBQ! If you would like more information 
about CWJC or would like to get involved with 
this ministry, contact Lil at (361) 334-4263.
