Pancake Breakfast. Challenging Verses.

Dear CCC Family, We are having a Pancake Breakfast on Sunday, June 16th, at 10:00 am. It is a great Sunday to invite someone to attend with you. The details are below. Topical sermons are good because they gather together what the Bible says about a particular topic. Preaching through a book of the Bible is good because it shows us everything the Bible teaches and not just the things that we want to hear and like. This Sunday in…

The Vine Project. Change of Dates. New Class Starting.

Dear CCC Family, The Vine Project – At Community Christian Church we strive to be a a church that makes disciples of Jesus, people who are learning Christ. That is not easy. Learning Christ means we change our convictions and behavior to what Jesus wants from what we want. By nature, we resist that changed and we would rather go to church to be told that we are perfect the way we are, to be made to feel good without…

New Series! Associate Minister Search. Baptism.

Dear CCC Family, I am excited to start a new series of message entitled “Living with Hope in a World that is Not Our Home.” It will be a study and an application of 1 Peter, a letter the Apostle Peter wrote to followers of Christ living in challenging times. In preparation for the series, it would be good for you to read the entire book of 1 Peter. It is short. If you don’t have time to do that…

Easter! Resurrection Sunday! Spanish Translation to Resume.

Dear CCC Family, Now that I have your attention. I will not be speaking in a rabbit costume this coming Sunday.

Join us and invite someone to come with you. The French service at 2:00 pm got off to a good start last Sunday. On May…

Easter is Sunday, April 21. It is a great day to invite people to church…

Julie Nevel. You did it!

Thanks! This Sunday’s lesson and craft in Junior Church will be good so bring an older grade school age guest. This Sunday we will have an extra music team member, Julie Nevel. Many of you know Julie. She led worship for…
