Dear CCC Family,
The construction teams are working hard to get the fourth floor apartment ready for the Prices to move into on September 28th. That floor is the priority for now. The third and second floors will follow shortly with the first floor being the last part completed.
All of the adult classes (Adult Bible Fellowships) are listed below. As is the start date for the Tuesday night Bible study. Also, check out the Introduction to Community Christian Church class on October 6. If you are new, it would be great to have you there.
Guest Sunday (Back to Church Sunday) is this Sunday. It is not too late to invite someone.
See you Sunday!
Tuesday Night Bible Study Starts
The Tuesday night Bible study will start on September 24 at 7:30 pm at the home of Crystal Astrachan, 1787 Madison Avenue, between 117th and 118th streets. We will look at key events in the Old Testament and what them mean in light of Jesus. Everyone is welcome to attend.
John and Heather Price Moving Date
Our Associate Minister, John Price and Heather, his wife, will move into our building at 210 East 117th Street Saturday morning, September 28. If you are physically able to carry items up stairs, come help. The exact move in time is yet to be determined.
Introduction to Community Christian Church Class
Join us for a one hour Introduction to Community Christian Church class on Sunday, October 6th at 12:30 pm. It is not a full membership class, but will give you a brief introduction to our beliefs, history, vision, and future plans.
Have you ever wanted to invite someone to church, but was not sure what Sunday would be good for that? If you answered “Yes,” then Guest Sunday is right for you. September 15 will be Guest Sunday when we do the service with a special focus on guests. We always try to do things in a way that is welcoming and we will do it even more so on that day, taking extra time to explain things. The message will be for everyone, especially for guests. Take advantage of Guest Sunday to invite your friends and family to church with you.
Overcome Your Inner Enemies – Lessons for David’s Defeat of Goliath
The shepherd boy, David, defeating the the giant, champion warrior, Goliath is one of the greatest victories in history. David defeated his enemy with a sling and a stone, but before that David had to overcome his inner enemies of fear, doubt, resentment, and failure. Join us starting September 15 (Guest Sunday) as God teaches us from David’s victory how to overcome these and other inner enemies we face.
Adult Bible Fellowships Resume September 22
Adult Bible Fellowships (ABFs) provide Bible instruction, discussion, friendship, and prayer. They will resume on Sunday September 22.
Boundaries: When to Say Yes, How to Say No To Take Control of Your Life. Does your life feel like it’s out of control? Perhaps you feel you have to say yes to everyone’s requests, especially if you are a Christian. Maybe you find yourself readily taking responsibility for others’ feelings and problems. Or perhaps you focus so much on being loving and unselfish that you’ve forgotten your own limits and limitations. Or maybe it’s all of the above. This study will help you learn when to say yes and know how to say no in order to take control of your life and set healthy, biblical boundaries with your spouse, children, friends, parents, co-workers, and even yourself. Led by Russell Kraft.
Life Lessons from the Book of Esther … studies on the providence of God, His perfect way, His perfect timing ‘for such a time as this.’ Led by Norma Lozada.
Core Christianity: Finding Yourself In God’s Story. If you are a Christian, you likely pray, go to church, and read your Bible on a regular basis. Still, with all the busyness of life, you may not be exactly sure how your faith fits into everything you are doing each day. This study delves into the core truths of the Christian faith to equip you to more fully experience the joy God has for you in Jesus Christ and encourage you to have the confidence to share your faith with others. Led by Jon Dyke.
