A Better Name. Next.

A Better Name. Next.

Dear CCC Family,

There is a better name for March than “Name Tag Month.” That doesn’t sound very appealing and it doesn’t describe it accurately. It is really Friendship Month. The month in which we become better friends by learning each other’s name through wearing name tags. Join us for Friendship Month and become better friends.

I am enjoying the 40 Days in the Word series. I hope it is helping you to love, learn, and live God’s Word. In a few weeks we will temporarily have people share from their daily Bible reading in the service. We will change how we do the Lord’s Supper a little to allow that. It is going to be good.

See you Sunday!

Jeff

PS I am looking forward to our next series starting on March 15. Be the Church. More details to follow.

Name Tag Month Friendship Month
During the month of March we will be asking you to wear name tags so we can become better acquainted. To make sure you have a printed name tag ready, please fill out a Communication Card on Sunday if you have never done so.

Music Team
If you have music ability that would like to volunteer to be part of the music  team talk to William Gomez or circle the “M” at the bottom of your completed Communication Card on Sunday.

Building Dedication Sunday – March 22

  • We will formally dedicate our building at 210 East 117th Street on Sunday, March 22, the 29th anniversary of our church’s first Sunday service. The dedication will take place at 1:00 pm shortly after our regular service. The regular service will be a PS 96 and the dedication will be at 210 East 117th Street. 
  • We will be receiving a special Dedication Offering that will go toward the cost of the renovation. If you made a pledge during our Daring Faith Campaign and got behind, this would be a great way to catch up. If you have become part of our church family more recently, you can be part of the campaign to renovate the building by giving. Current and former members are always welcome to make a special gift  in honor and memory of their time with CCC. Click here to go to the online donation Building Dedication Offering page.
  • As part of the Dedication Service we would like a few people to share “What Community Christian Church means to me”. If you are interested in doing that, talk to Jeff or circle the “S” at the bottom of your Communication Card.
