This month we had the joy of celebrating baptisms and professions of faith at both campuses with the following people:
Jhett Moffatt, Acacia Keahi, Kate Zwart, Hunter Koops, Rylie Jurrens, and Gavyn Jurrens. (Hunter, Rylie, and Gavyn are not pictured)
A discussion was held as to ways to continually engage with the Covenant Partners in the life of the church. The Board was excited to see so many Covenant Partners at the Refresh Centerpoint meetings and were encouraged by the questions and comments that were made. Thank you to all who participated in those meetings.
The annual meeting for Centerpoint Church will be held on June 19. Covenant Partners are encouraged to attend. The meeting will include time to celebrate what God has done in our midst for the past year and present ideas for carrying our Mission forward in the coming year. Updates on the progress of the Centerpoint Refresh project will be presented. The single slate of nominees for the Elder Board and the budget for 2022-23 will also be presented.
The Refresh Centerpoint project will begin in earnest this week. The carpet to be replaced will be pulled up. Members are encouraged to get involved by volunteering to help. If you have not received an email detailing the volunteer opportunities, please call or email the church office or sign up online on the Centerpoint website: wearecenterpoint.com Scroll to bottom of page.

The final bids for the Refresh Centerpoint project are not in yet. It is looking like all of the projected $475,000 will be needed to complete the project. If you desire to be involved by donating to the project, stop by the Next Steps booth on Sunday or stop by the church office during the week and pick up a pledge card. Donations can also be made online on the wearecenterpoint.com website. Click the Give at the top of the page, then click the Give button under Online giving choice.

We are currently 15% behind in giving.
As we begin our projects at the Hawarden and Sioux Center campuses, there are a few things to know.
Mailboxes at the Sioux Center campus have been moved down the hallway to the east side of the building and are near the ramp to the basement.
Historical items that were located in the north entry of the Sioux Center campus are in storage and will be displayed in a new location once the project is complete.
Meet the Staff: Emily
Hello! My name is Emily Wedel and I am so excited to serve at the Hawarden campus of Centerpoint as the worship coordinator.
I am a junior at Dordt University studying Worship Arts and Psychology as well as minoring in Theology. I am originally from the Huron, South Dakota area. I started leading worship years ago in my junior high youth group and continued growing my worship leading abilities in my high school youth group and school as well as my church.
I am very excited to see what God has in store for this next season in this new place. It is a joy to step into the worship culture that has been created here at Centerpoint.
A Closer Look: Awana
Wednesday nights during the ministry year, Centerpoint Church gets to partner with New Life Church to offer Awana, one of our children’s discipleship programs. Each week adults and kids from across our community come together to spend time in God’s Word; learning Scripture, interacting with a Bible story, and being challenged to learn what it’s like to live in this world as a Christian.
Through the Awana program, we have seen a beautiful example of people of all ages living on mission together and reaching beyond themselves to make Christ known. Check out some examples below:
Centerpoint Church and New Life Church intentionally brought together children’s ministry efforts to strive to build the kingdom together.
Kids lived generously by bringing offering each week to support different local causes. The organizations impacted through giving this year were: Kidzone, Rising Arrows, Sack Pack Program, Katelyn's Fund Orphan Ministry, and Hope Food Pantry.
Nearly 100 adults-from college age and up- committed their time and talents to serving at Awana.
Kids displayed selflessness when they regularly chose to forgo shopping on “Store Night” and instead donated their Awana Bucks back to the program to be turned into real cash to donate to a supported organization.
As Awana has come to a close for the ministry year, we celebrate how God is at work through us and around us as people continue to “choose to engage in opportunities to grow together and reach beyond themselves to make Christ known,” said Sarah Lee, Director of Children’s Ministry at Centerpoint Church. Sam Mosher, Children’s Ministry Team Coordinator of New Life Church, echoes this sentiment. “This wouldn’t happen without the presence of God. He gets all the glory for this!”
