CHURCH-WIDE NEWS:

Casual Sundays for the Summer

All summer long, (June, July, August), will be Casual Sundays at the Pointe. That is, tastefully casual.


Wednesday Night Bible Class – Summer Months

Just as last year during the summer months, we will suspend our Wednesday Night Prayer & Praise service. It does not, however, mean that we will suspend our Bible study. Lessons will be sent out weekly, via the Gazette, and answer keys to follow in the next week’s email. There will be copies at the Welcome center for those who do not use the computer.

Health Services

August is Immunization Awareness Month!

National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM) is an annual observance held in August to highlight the importance of vaccination for people of all ages. NIAM was established to encourage people of all ages to make sure they are up to date on the vaccines recommended for them. Communities have continued to use the month each year to raise awareness about the important role vaccines play in preventing.

Hey church family, don’t wait until the last minute to get your children vaccinated. Avoid the long lines and missed school days. Schedule or call your PCP for vaccinations or get information on upcoming vaccination clinics in your community. College students should get the meningitis vaccine especially if you plan on living in dorms and close quarters.

Pinnacle Pointes will resume rehearsals this Sunday (8/5) at the Dallas Campus, following service. We will also rehearse Sunday (8/12). In September, we will go to our regular schedule: (2nd & 4th Sundays)
