Dear CCC Family,
This Sunday will mark the one year anniversary of our meeting at Public School 96. It has been an adventure with ups and downs. I think we are now on a consistent upward path. Thank you for staying with us and joining us on this journey! Our church’s best days are ahead of us. Stay tuned.
There will be an announcement about the Associate Minister position during the service on Sunday.
We are hoping to have baptisms next Sunday, if we can work out all the logistics. If you need to be baptized, read the announcement below.
Crystal is hosting a cook out for us on July 27. Be sure to read about it below and sign up to attend and bring a friend.
PS I think we got the temperature right last Sunday. We have a great relationship with the school and its staff.
Tuesday Bible Study
There is a new Bible study on Tuesdays at 7:30 at the home of Crystal Astrachan, 1787 Madison Avenue, which is between 117th and 118th streets. We are looking at the parables of Jesus. Everyone is welcome to attend.
Baptisms – July 14
We plan to set up our portable baptistry and have baptisms on Sunday, July 14, after the service. If you are interested in being baptized or have questions about being baptized, circle the “B” at the bottom of your completed Communication Card and put it in the offering bag or give it to a greeter on Sunday. You can also email email@example.com or call at the number below.
On Day membership Class – July 20
All four sessions of the Join the Team! Membership Class will be presented on one day on Saturday, July 20, starting at 9:30 am and ending at 12:30 pm. We will meet at 1787 Madison Avenue which is between 117th and 118th streets. Please circle the “J” on your completed Communication Card or email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you will be attending.
Cookout – July 27
Crystal is hosting a cookout for CCC on July 27 in the courtyard of her apartment building, 1787 Madison Avenue, from 12-5 pm. Hotdogs, hamburgers, chicken, corn and snacks will be provided. If you’d like to attend, help, or bring anything, please sign up here.
Membership Sunday – August 4
On Sunday, August 4, we will recognize all those who have met the new membership requirements and signed Community Christian Church’s Membership Agreement. Because we had to change the date of the one day membership class, current members need to sign the Membership Agreement by August 4 to remain a formal member. Some volunteer will need to sign the Membership Agreement or the Volunteer Agreement to remain in their position. They will have until August 4 as well.
