We remain committed to fulfilling our MISSION and VISION, as a church family. The Summer Season of 2021 included a variety of ministry opportunities, for us to:
During the Summer Season of 2021, 80 people attended our Next Step church membership classes, and engaged with our mission to impact our world with the Gospel!
Baptism is one of the most vivid pictures of life-change in our lives. This summer, 35 people went public with their faith in Christ!
9 families recently participated in Family Dedication, which includes a separate ceremony for families, and recognition before our church family. As parents commit to love and lead their children to follow Jesus, our congregation also commits to support and encourage the children as they grow.
For the first time since the beginning of the pandemic, our church campuses were able to gather together to enjoy each other’s company, outside of our Sunday morning gatherings. We hosted several outdoor events (‘Get Together’ at Fairhope and Daphne; ‘Community Funday’ at Midtown; Crawfish Boil at Thomasville), including great food, live music, inflatables, outdoor games, and FUN!
Together we celebrated our moms, and reminded them how they special they are, complete with a beautiful flower shop set-up at our campuses.
Our first Serve Day of 2021 was fantastic! In the month of May, we participated in projects all across our communities, surrounding our 4 campuses.
Our August Serve Day was spent at our Midtown Campus, for our annual Back 2 School Bash. Campuses combined to provide 376 backpacks, school supplies, and free meals to our Midtown community, as families prepared to return to school.

Student Summer Kick-Off took place in late May, a 3-day event for middle school and high school students from all campuses. Each night included a fun theme to kick-off the summer in an unforgettable way, along with engaging worship and teaching. It was a life-changing week for many of our students.
The Murph Challenge is a physical competition, created in honor of U.S. Navy Seal, Michael P. Murphy, who gave his life for our country in 2005. The Murph consists of a one-mile run, 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 squats, and another one-mile run, all done consecutively. 17 of our men and women participated in this year’s challenge.
We celebrated Father’s Day this year at the start of our ‘Journeys’ summer series. We gave away 3Circle Men mugs, and a few lucky dads even received some pretty awesome rolling party coolers!
3Circle Music is the songwriting and recording arm of 3Circle Church. This Summer, we released 10 songs, including ‘Way Maker [Live],’ ‘Like Only You Can Do,’ ‘Only the Blood [Live],’ and our ‘Features, Vol. 2’ album.
This summer, over 900 children came together across all four campuses of 3Circle Church for a week we hope they never forget. Throughout the week, kids “traveled” the globe and faced challenges to discover how to follow Jesus and run their race of faith. They learned that salvation is just the starting line!
This summer we launched our brand new Young Adults ministry, for ages 18-26. 136 people came to our First Look gathering, which included worship, teaching, and Q+A. We also hosted a Summer Hangout event, and began monthly worship gatherings, just for this age group. We are committed to leading Young Adults to fully follow Jesus with their lives!
Our annual Refresh women’s brunch took place in July, with 150 ladies in attendance. It was a wonderful time of refreshment, through worship and teaching, fellowship, and great food.
gave blood, saving up to 201 lives
Love gives! Our semi-annual blood drives with LifeSouth Blood Center were a success; between our Daphne and Fairhope campuses, a total of 67 people gave blood, which will save up to 201 lives in our local communities!
Midtown Night of Worship
Our first full Night of Worship at our Midtown Campus took place in July; it was a beautiful evening, chronicling six years of God’s provision and blessing upon 3Circle-Midtown.
Fairhope/Daphne Night of Worship
Our Fairhope and Daphne campuses also partnered in July for a powerful Night of Worship and Communion.

Our Daphne and Fairhope campuses kicked off the new school year with Back to School Parties at each campus, full of fun and connection for students.
married/engaged couples joined us (on-site and online) for a very special True Marriage event, featuring Dr. Gary Chapman, author of ‘The 5 Love Languages.’ It was both a fun and impactful evening, pouring into our marriage relationships.
Our missions efforts continue, with a focus on needs within our local, regional, and global circles. In addition to ongoing efforts, we were able to send mission teams on short-term trips this summer, to places like North Carolina, Georgia, and Honduras.
As a church, we partner with amazing missionaries, local churches, and organizations in both our regional and global circles, to carry the Gospel to the world.
