Ordination for Daniel Robertson

This Sunday, August 21 at 5:00 p.m., we will have an ordination service for Daniel Robertson.

Daniel has faithfully served our church for over six years as an intern, and the church pastors will now recognize publicly the call of God on his life, and set him in place as a pastor at CIL.

You are invited to join us for this service and celebration.

Who are you inviting to One Sunday?

Today would be a great day to invite someone to One Sunday, which takes place at CIL on Sunday, August 21, 2011.

We’ve asked more than 50,000 people over the last 10 years why they came to church, and between 75 and 90 percent of respondents say, “I began attending because someone invited me. Those friends and relatives are critical to the growth of churches. They far outweigh factors like the facilities, music, preaching, or children’s ministry—people may stay because of these things, but they come because someone they knew invited them.” – Charles Arn[1]


You are Invited to “One Sunday”

We are 6 days away from One Sunday!

On Sunday, August 21The Church at Indian Lake  is having One Sunday.  This special Sunday is a chance for us to re-gather everyone after the busy summer, and introduce or re-introduce our church to people who normally don’t attend.

We’re asking everyone who attends CIL to come to one of our two services that begin at either 9:00 a.m. or 10:45 a.m.   If you are a regular attendee, I would so appreciate you making this Sunday a priority in your schedule.

If you are a former attendee or visitor, I am inviting you to come back and see what is happening in our family.



On Sunday (August 14th) I will be speaking on “Growing Together as a Family” as we continue the series Home(work).   The Holy Spirit is going to help all of us deal with issues regarding our families, and we will discover tools to help us heal and maintain family relationships.

I look forward to seeing you Sunday at either 9:00 or 10:45.
