Home! A New Year! God’s Special Blessing!

Dear CCC Family, It is good to be home! Although we had a good a week visiting family in Tennessee and Missouri, we are looking forward starting the new year with you this Sunday. I have a deep sense that 2015 is going to be a special year in the life of our church, not because of any specific thing that I or we are doing or will do; God seems to be up to something. He is bringing together…

Guests. Postponed. Prayer.

Dear CCC Family, We have had a great December together. Last Sunday was another good one and the children’s hand bell choir was great. Thanks Christina. The Christmas Eve service was special as usual. Thanks to Jonathan and Jon for making it happen. I will be in Tennessee this coming Sunday with my grandchildren. We will have guests speaking and leading worship. Pastor Daniel Feliciano from La Hermosa Christian Church will be speaking and William Gomez will be leading worship.…

Wow! Christmas Eve Service!

Dear CCC Family, Wow! We had a good day of worship last Sunday and a great day of fellowship at the Christmas Lunch. I will officially declare it our best Christmas lunch ever. You brought great food, helped out in a great way, and we had a lot of fun with the entertainment. So far I have not seen any videos of the Butler family quartet on Facebook or YouTube, for which I am grateful. Thank you. I can’t wait…

You are Invited to the ACPL and Karaoke!

Dear CCC Family, You are invited to the ACPL, better known as the Annual Christmas Potluck Lunch. It has been a highlight of the year since Community Christian Church started nearly 24 years ago. Whether you are regular attendee, haven’t attended in a while, or are yet to attend, you are invited to join us this Sunday. First, we will learn about hope and then experience the hope that Christian fellowship brings. Invite a friend too! See you Sunday! Jeff  …

Get Hope. Food. Hand Bells. Prayer.

Dear CCC Family, The Christmas season is here! The cookies are being baked, carols are being sung, and the shopping is being done. Those are all great but keep your focus on Jesus and the hope He brings. Join us this Sunday as we start our Christmas series, “Get Hope for Christmas.” It is the gift you won’t return and that others will be thankful for receiving. See you Sunday! Jeff   PS Remember to Pray for One. Pray that…

Resurrection. Christmas. Loan. Children. Luncheon.

Dear CCC Family, I hope you had an enjoyable Thanksgiving. We did. Great time with family! Four different pies! Sweet potato is the best. We will conclude the “Heaven, Hell, and the End of the World Series” this Sunday with a message on the resurrection, our bodily resurrection. I spoke on hell last Sunday and I have never seen so many people inspired by a message about hell. It may have been a good message but my best ever? I…

Hell. December. Children. Hand Bells.

Dear CCC Family, There are two more weeks in the Heaven, Hell, and the End of the World message series. Last week we looked at heaven and what happens after we die. This week we look at what the Bible says about hell and the big question, “Would a loving God really send some one to hell?” Join as we examine this difficult but challenging question. Lots of good things are happening in December. Check them all out below. See…

New Property Option

Information about a New Property Option In January of 2013, Community Christian Church purchased a small a one-story garage/warehouse-type building at 159 E. 118th Street for $925,000. We put $400,000 down and borrowed $525,000. The plan is to tear the existing building down and construct a new six-story building. The top three floors would be condominiums, which would be sold to help cover the cost of the church portion of the building, the basement and bottom three floors. As we…

Letter from Minister Jeff Butler

Dear Community Christian Church Family, I love writing these occasional letters to you. Although we see each other every Sunday, our time is so focused on what is going on right then that we don’t have time to talk about other important matters. God has been especially good to us this year, although it didn’t start out well. On January 1, I was still in the hospital with a recurrence of Guillain-Barre syndrome and completed my two week hospital stay…
