Now that we’re getting ready to regather and gear back up with in-person ministry events again, we wanted to give you a nudge to go out and download our new mobile app. It’s called the “Church Center” App and it allows you to register for church events, find and join groups, check in your kids 90% of the way BEFORE you get to church (learn more here), give electronically, update your contact info, and more! Just search “Church Center” in the App Store or Google Play to download, and then add Daybreak as your church during setup.
Our Spiritual Formation Team spent a significant amount of time writing and creating a devotional YouVersion Reading Plan to partner along with our 2020 summer sermon series, "Jesus Only," to help us continue to engage with Jesus this summer in our study of the book of Colossians. This is the first time we’ve ever put together a Daybreak-written plan on YouVersion and it was a bit of a learning process, but our team is excited about how it’s come together.
There will actually be 2 different plans (Jesus Only: Part One and Jesus Only: Part 2) that will each cover about half of the series. Each week of the plan runs from Sunday to Saturday and aligns with the Sunday message for that week. That means we invite you to go search for “Jesus Only: Part One” in the YouVersion Bible App and start it on Sunday, June 21.
And while you could do these plans individually, they’d be even richer to do with friends or with your Small Group. So we encourage you to invite others to go through the plans with you! You’ll be able to share what God is teaching each of you on this journey in the “Talk it Over” section of the plan. Looking forward to tracking along with the series together and embracing JESUS ONLY as our source for a fulfilling and purposeful life.

Although these last few months have been unpredictable to say the least, God has provided some pretty powerful opportunities to serve one another amidst all the uncertainty. Our next opportunity to serve will be to bake and donate cookies to local nursing homes that have been hit the hardest by COVID-19 - this simple serve will bless several hundred staff and workers who have been on the front lines, caring for the most vulnerable.
If you’d be willing to bake 2 dozen or more cookies, head out to cookies.db.church to sign up, then bring your cookies on either Friday, July 17 during our office hours (on slide), or bring them with you Sunday morning, July 19 when we regather for services. Thanks for joining us as we support our local community in this way!
If you haven’t already, we encourage you to grab a baby bottle in the lobby to fill with coins, bills, or checks to support our local ministry partner, The Capital Area Pregnancy Center and the life-giving work they do! Filled bottles are due back Sunday, July 26.
Daybreak Men - Join us from 8-10am every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month at the GP Cafe or on Zoom!
A few items to note...
1. No breakfast - We are slowly phasing in pieces as we return. We'll let you know when chef Jamie is at the grill again.
2. BYOC - At least for the first week back, please plan to bring your own coffee.
3. If you're not able to join us in person, just email Adam Herman at firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom link!
