Good Ending. Great Beginning.

Dear CCC Family, Last Sunday was good one! It was great to have David Matasima with us and have Salomon and Caroline share in the service. It was also our best Candles and Carols service ever. Tariq’s rendition of “Joy to the World” to close the service was exceptional. Laurie and I will be away this coming Sunday visiting family in the Midwest. Alex Lozada will be our guest speaker. He is on the staff of Mountain Christian Church in Joppa, Maryland,…

Candles and Carols. Special Testimony. Revitalization.

        Dear CCC Family, Last Sunday’s Christmas Lunch was great! More than ever before people were talking about how good the food was. Thanks to Jackie Coss for coordinating it, everyone who helped set up and clean up, and to those that brought the great food. Well done. This Sunday will be different, but still start at 11:00 am. It will be a candles and carols service. We will have the Lord’s Supper as usual and there…

Christmas Potluck Lunch. Visa News (Bad then Great).

Dear CCC Family, This Sunday will be one of the year’s best. After worship, we fellowship together during our Annual Christmas Lunch. It has been a tradition for 28 years! Be sure to attend and bring some people with you. Last night during our small group at Miguel’s and Valerie’s we received some bad news. Salomon and Caroline told us that their son, David, could not get an visa interview until January 23. That is a problem because school starts for…

Movie Tonight. Congregational Meeting Sunday. Schedule Change.

Dear CCC Family, We will show the movie, I Can Only Imagine, tonight at PS 96 at 7:00 pm. I hope to see you there. It has been five months since we moved to PS 96. It is time to update you on what that has meant for us as a church family, let you know where we are with reference to property, and give you a preview of 2019. We will do that at a meeting on Sunday, December…

I Can Only Imagine Movie. Congregational Meeting. Advent Wreaths for Children.

  Dear CCC Family, It is beginning to sound a lot like Christmas. It is beginning to look like it too. We often focus on all the decorations we see and miss how we get to hear so much Christ honoring music. Of course, there are songs that miss the point of Christmas being the birth of Christ.  Still, even those that do that remind us that this is a special time of the year, a most wonderful one.  Check…

Record! Christmas Offering! Christmas Events!

Dear CCC Family, I wasn’t sure what to expect when we decided we couldn’t have an Operation Christmas Child packing party this year. But, as usual, you were up to the challenge. You brought 75 already packed shoe boxes! That is the most ever without a packing party. Well done! You have also already claimed all the children for the Angel Tree Project. Great job!  You are off to a great start making this Christmas about Jesus and letting your…

Last Chance. Angel Tree Project. Looking Ahead.

Dear CCC Family, We will be focusing on giving thanks this Sunday. You can look ahead to see what will be happening in December for Christmas, but don’t rush past Thanksgiving. See you Sunday! Jeff PS Please continue to pray about the property negotiations. Last Chance to Bring Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes This Sunday The last place for us to drop off shoeboxes will close on Monday so this Sunday will be your absolute last chance to bring them to…

Shoeboxes due this Sunday. Angel Tree Project. Thank you.

Dear CCC Family, If you missed the Pancake Breakfast,  you missed a treat. The pancakes were great and the fellowship even better. We appreciate those who provided it and those that fought the Marathon traffic to get there. We had a good turnout in spite of the travel difficulties.  The Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes are due this Sunday. If you didn’t pack a shoebox, you can help by making a contribution to cover the cost of delivering them around the…

Set Your Clock Back. Pancake Breakfast. Prizes.

Dear CCC Family, What a weekend! You get an extra hour of sleep and Pancake Breakfast with prizes! Even better another opportunity to worship God, learn from His word, fellowship with other believers, and remember Christ’s sacrifice for you. It doesn’t get better than that! Check out the new announcements and updates below that are in red. See you Sunday. Jeff PS Please continue to pray about the property negotiations. New Service Time. The worship service now starts at 11:00…

A lot will be happening on November 4. The Pancake Breakfast will be a great opportunity to invite someone to attend church with you because you get an extra hour of sleep the night before. See you Sunday. Jeff PS Please continue to pray about the property negotiations. New Service Time. Beginning Sunday October 28,…
