Connect Sunday

Connect Sunday is coming!

Connect Sunday is a simple opportunity for you to learn more about the life of our church. On Sunday, August 25th we’re having several tables with leaders available to answer any questions about who we are and what we do. Whether you’ve visited us once or have been around for the past couple of weeks, we’d love a chance to hang out and talk with you!

WHAT TO EXPECT

Connect Sunday will take place, mainly, after service in the atrium at the McAllen Incubator and we’ll have leaders from various ministries broken up into three categories:

Drill Deep
If you’ve been around for some time, we try to talk about relationships and community as much as possible. We believe that this is the lifeblood of our church. The goal of the ”Drill Deep” section is to help you cultivate deep friendships and relationships through discipleship, care, and bible study.

Reach Wide
”Reach Wide” serves as the missional arm of our church where our goal is to develop existing and new partnerships. These partnerships serve as opportunities for us to seek the restoration of our city as well as opportunities to serve internationally in Guatemala where two of our on going partnerships include Servants and Compassion International exist and we take seasonal mission trips in order to help teach, serve, and equip local churches and sponsor kids and families in need of financial assistance.

Raise Up
As a small church, we have the opportunity and privilege to invest and develop men and women, not only in the various capacities of ministry, but in the ordinary. We believe that the church ought to serve as the “hub” for leadership development. As a result, “raising up” includes everything from our equipping ministry to membership at Storehouse Community Church to Sunday Morning serving teams.

Questions?

If you’d still like more information or may you’ll be out that Sunday, you can always email cristina@storehousemcallen and she will gladly connect you accordingly. We’re looking forward to seeing you!

Back to School Drive 2019

Volunteer Date.jpg

For the last three years, we have partnered with World Gospel Mission (WGM), a non-profit organization who ministers to many migrant families in south McAllen and provides affordable Christian education, sports ministry and leagues, and much more. One of the annual events that we come together on is a back to school drive for the students at Taylor Christian School

This event has two parts: school supply donations and volunteer opportunities. Each year that we've done this, it's been a great opportunity to not only serve our community, but pray for students and their families as they prepare for upcoming school year. We hope you can join us this August! Check out the details below:

SCHOOL SUPPLY LIST

* Backpacks**
• Gluesticks or bottles; 
• Folders with brads;
• Composition notebooks; 
• Loose leaf paper packets; 
• Pencils (No.2);
• Erasers;
• Scissors (blunt and sharp);
• Washable markers; 
• Wide ruled notebooks; 
• Hand sanitizer

Donations may be dropped off at the Incubator (display at the Connections desk) on Sunday Mornings. The deadline for school supply donations is Sunday, August 4th 2019

**While all of the above school supplies are needed, backpacks are one of the most valuable and greater supplies we can give students

VOLUNTEER DAY

The day to volunteer is Saturday, August 10th from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. and we'll be doing everything from setting up and sorting through school supplies for students as the drive will be hosted at Taylor Community Center

The Grace Initiative

Grace Initiative.jpg

In chapter two of the Apostle Peter’s epistle, God through Peter tells us that we are a “chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him [Jesus] who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light” and to “keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable, so that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation” (1 Peter 2:9, 12, emphasis added).

When it comes to the gospel, God in Christ has called the church to a mission of making and maturing disciples. The method of discipleship can vary from church to church, but at Storehouse McAllen we believe that we exist to make disciples of Jesus by declaring and demonstrating the gospel to our city and community.

THE GRACE INITIATIVE

The Grace Initiative is a three week giving campaign where our goal is to raise $1,000.00 for two things:

  1. Through our community groups, we wish to bless those in our city, community, and missional partnerships with the gift of grace—demonstrating grace provisionally and declaring the grace of the gospel; that in God’s love and kindness, Christ died for sinners not as a result of their merit or performance, but according to His mercy (Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:4-5).

  2. Launch the start of our Mercy Ministries where we provide a variety of services and care toward those in our community and missional partnerships.

Our desire is not only to bless our city and community through the provision of materials and care, but to bless our city and community by making disciples of Jesus, bringing glory and grace to His name. Would you prayerfully consider joining us on mission as we seek the renewal of our city and community for the glory of God’s name?

COMMUNITY GROUPS

Community Groups are families of disciples on mission for the glory of God and through the Grace Initiative, we hope that you’re encouraged and challenged in joining us on mission through our community groups.

The meat of discipleship and care, for su, happens through community and we hope to see you in one of our groups this week! Visit our groups page to learn more.

HOW TO GIVE

You can give toward this campaign (ends March 24th 2019) through one of two ways:

  1. Visit our GIVING page where you can select “The Grace Initiative.”

  2. On Sunday Mornings, write “GRACE” on our giving envelope and drop in the offering baskets.

Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve.jpeg

The year is coming to a fast close and as we look back at all that God has done, we are continually humbled and filled with joy at simply getting to be a part of the work of the Holy Spirit and a part of our church family!

Whether it’s from the pulpit or throughout the life of our church, we aim at preaching and embracing that who we are determines what we do. And that identity begins with the person and work of Jesus.

We invite you to join us for our Christmas Eve service where we celebrate not simply the birth of a child, but the coming of a savior.

In the Valley, Christmas Eve is a steeped in our traditional value and culture so we want you to invite your friends and family as we make much of Jesus and His priority: to save sinners and reconcile us to God the Father.

Hope to see you on Christmas Eve at the McAllen Incubator (601 N. Main Street).

Night of Worship

Hymns.png

From time to time, we host a night of worship and this year our theme is “Hymns of our Fathers,” where we invite you to join us in experiencing worship and prayer through hymns and the story and message behind them.

Hymns have a tremendous impact on the history of the church and when we revisit these historical songs of biblical truths, we are immediately connected with the historical church and the saints who previously worshipped God through them.

DETAILS

Night of Worship will be held on the first floor of the McAllen Incubator (old public library) at 601 N. Main Street and will take place from 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. on Friday, November 16th 2018.

Child care for this event is provided, but is limited to infants and toddlers.

For more information on child care or night of worship, please email lc@storehousemcallen.com

2018 Men's Retreat

Mans Chief End.jpeg

One of the most probing questions that people will ask themselves is “what is my purpose?” Men in particular can and will wrestle with this question because when their purpose is finally defined, so is their manhood. Nothing is more dangerous than a man without a purpose.

The Westminster Confession of Faith asks the question:
What is the chief end of man? The chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.

We invite you to join us for our first annual Men’s Retreat as Storehouse Community Church as we explore Man’s Chief End. This retreat is a wonderful opportunity to grow in the brotherhood, enjoy amazing food together, and worship our King Jesus loudly.

Over the course of a short weekend, we’re going to look at what scripture teaches us on manhood and the glory of God.

Men’s Retreat Details

The retreat is scheduled for Friday, November 30th - Sunday, December 2nd at La Copa Inn Beach Hotel. The cost of the retreat is $75/person. Below is all that the fee covers:

• Registration, Room (4 people to a room**), and meals (Friday and Saturday night dinner);

Weslaco Work Day

Weslaco Workday.png

On Monday, July 16th we're heading over to Weslaco to help many of the families that were affected by the flooding a few weeks ago here in The Valley. 

Several non-profits and church organizations have been on the ground helping move furniture out of houses, rip insulation out of walls to prevent walls from building mold, and helping to distribute everyday house hold items such as water, pillows and blankets, and cleaning supplies.

And while resources have been pouring in and have been generous, organizations are lacking volunteers to help clear houses and distribute supplies. Storehouse Community Church is about the proclamation and practice of the gospel not only to McAllen, but to our Valley. And sometimes practicing the gospel means getting dirty; hope you can join us next week! 

While Monday won't be the only day available for us to serve, it is a wonderful opportunity to come together as a church family. The work and help needed in Weslaco will be a great need for the next several months; stay posted for details on further dates.

If you have any questions concerning the kind of needs Weslaco families have, please call Efrain Garcia (956) 492.6834
