We have begun the work on remodeling the bathrooms at Capri. Allow me a moment to say a big thank you to Paul Rhoads, Dale Williamson, Curt Ayers, Eric Garwood, Tim Gardiner, & Dustin Cooper for spending most of the morning ripping out the mirrors, stall doors, & sinks and vanity’s today. These guys are one mean wrecking crew! Just a reminder to you that all the restrooms on the main auditorium side will be closed this coming Sunday as they are being remodeled. The restrooms in the Fellowship Hall will still be available for use. Let these guys know you appreciate there hard work this weekend.

Dustin Cooper is no stranger to Capri. He grew up on the Isles of Capri and has attended Capri Christian Church since he was 7 years old. Currently Dustin enrolled at Johnson University in Knoxville, TN where is studying Youth Ministry and Preaching. As one of our ‘Timothy’s” he is serving as our Summer Intern. He hopes to gain knowledge in growing a youth program, the nuts and bolts of ministry, and to grow to become spiritually stronger.
In his free time you’ll find Dustin longboarding (‘street-surfin’), fishing, picking the banjo, and spending quality time with his brother Aaron. He is really looking forward to spending quality time with his family this summer.
His favorite passage of scripture is Ephesians 6:10-18
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
Be sure and introduce yourself to Dustin and be a great encouragement to him as he serves alongside of us here at Capri!
Our season small groups have all finished now and so we are starting our next group study here at the church. Starting on Monday, May 13th we are introducing ‘Jesus’ Short Stories – a study of the parables. The study will last 13 weeks with a different parable each week. Come for all 13 of the studies or if you have to miss a few you won’t get behind. We will meet in the main auditorium at 6pm each Monday night. Learn with us and connect with us and you’ll see you belong with us!
We are practicing on Thursday nights at 6pm. The choir will be presenting “I Love This Land” on Sunday, July 7th for both services. Russell Mauldin & Sue Smith have created another powerful 25-minute musical presentation that will have you singing along on songs like Battle Hymn of the Republic, My Country ‘Tis of Thee, the Armed Forces Medley, and This Land is His Land. We are in need of more singers to join us now that we are moving out of season – so come out and join us!
We invite you to come and pray with us on the Thursday, May 2nd at 11am here at the church in observance of the National Day of Prayer. This year’s theme, “Pray for America”, is based on Matthew 12:21 which reminds us that “In His name the nations will put their hope.” We will be praying specifically for our government, church, military, family, education, media, & business. After the prayer service we invite you to go out to lunch with us – we will announce where on the day of the service.

Nothing Night: April 19th 6pm-1am
Nothing night is where truly creative minds get creative. We will open up the building and allow students to plan the activities that we do.

This night is always epic, don’t let your student miss it!!
