New Tradition? Christmas Offering. Angel Tree Presents.

Dear CCC Family, Although we won’t be having an Open House at 210 East 117th Street this Sunday, it will still be a good one to attend and bring a guest. We will follow what we did last year and give a Christmas ornament to those in attendance. A new tradition? See you Sunday! Jeff PS If you bought a present for the Angel Tree Project, please bring it this Sunday. Open House DelayedConstruction delays means we will have to…

Record! New Members! Oops! Christmas Wreaths! Snow?

Dear CCC Family, You did it! You more than met our goal of 75 shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. In fact, you set a new record without a packing party. You gave 109 well filled shoeboxes. Well done! More good news! Five more people become new members of Community Christian Church last Sunday. We will have another membership class in January. Oops! Now for some not so good news. Construction delays means we will have to postpone the Open House…

And the winner is! Last Chance.

Dear CCC Family, Have you joined the turkey contest by guessing the weight? Well, the winner is . . . Actually, the contest does not end until tonight, Friday night, at midnight so click here and make your guess. The winner will be announced tomorrow. You can still bring your Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes this Sunday. But that is the absolute last chance as they will close the drop off centers on Monday. It is always more fun to do…

Shoeboxes due this Sunday. Love this picture.

Dear CCC Family, I wasn’t with you last Sunday, but I love this picture. So many smiling faces. Maybe we should meet in the cafeteria every Sunday. Not really, though I do appreciate those who worked hard to make things go as smoothly as possible last week and everyone’s cooperation and positive attitude. We will be back in the auditorium this Sunday. December will be a busy month. Please read below about all that will be happening. Any Sunday is…

Change. Prayer. Looking Ahead.

Dear CCC Family, We made a change in the order of service last Sunday. It was only meant to be for one Sunday, but we are going to continue the change for a while. The announcements, offering, and communion will now be before the message. What is the main reason for this change? There are other reasons, but the main reason is prayer. It is not uncommon for us to run out of time to pray for people during the…

John Price Speaking. Overcome Shame. Progress on Building. Fall Festival.

Dear CCC Family, John Price will be speaking this Sunday. He will continue the Overcome Your Inner Enemies Series by looking at shame and how to overcome it. Progress!
