We have had no problems and we want…

Greeters & Ushers: Purpose & Responsibilities

Why are greeters and ushers important? First, greeters and ushers welcome newcomers / guests to the church and provide general information about the church. Second, greeters and ushers welcome regular attendees. And there’s a third purpose, which is just as important; outdoor greeters engage with our neighbors who are walking by on Sunday morning. Your presence both inside and outside as a greeter or usher is valued and very important to our community and CCC. Two equally important service roles…

Two Options This Sunday. 9:30 and 11:00.

Dear CCC Family, Our online gathering last Sunday was great! John did a great job of producing and hosting it. Josiah did a great job of editing it. And, you came and commented in a way that encouraged us all. Well done! I am struggling to get the hang of speaking to a camera instead of live to people. I feel like the struggling actor in the Liberty Mutual Insurance commercial. I am working on it though. This Sunday you…
