Dear CCC Family,
We will write the end of one chapter of the Community Christian Church story this Sunday. It will be our last Sunday meeting at La Hermosa Christian Church. It has been a good five years. We have grown by 33% while we have been there, baptizing and adding members. It has been a convenient place to meet and we have gotten comfortable there, maybe too comfortable.
This Sunday will also be the beginning of new chapter. Our Daring Faith Commitment Day will launch us into the future. We will renovate our building and hire an associate minister as a result of it. We will prepare to start a new chapter as we begin meeting at PS 96 at 216 E. 120th Street. That is just three blocks north of our building at 210 E. 117th Street. We will meet in an auditorium with a stage. We will have separate space for fellowship. We will start with one service at 10:30 am because the auditorium is large and pray that we quickly grow to two again. It will take us a couple of weeks to adjust to the new place, but it will be good when we do. Come write the next chapter with us!
See you Sunday.
PS We will need help moving on Saturday and Sunday. Please read about it below.
New Sunday Location Beginning July 1
Beginning Sunday, July 1, Community Christian Church will meet at PS 96 at 216 E. 120th Street. This is between Second and Third Avenues, closer to Third. We will have one worship service at 10:30 am. Parking on the street is usually easy to find there on Sunday mornings. The 6 train stops at 116th St. and 125th St on Lexington Avenue. The M116 Bus starts on W. 106th St. and runs across 116th St. to the east side.
Daring Faith Commitment Sunday – One Service at 10:45 am
Sunday, June 24, will be commitment day for the Daring Faith Next Chapter Giving Campaign. To launch Community Christian Church into our next chapter we are raising funds to renovate our building at 210 East 117th St. and hire an associate minister. We need to renovate the first two floors sooner than planned since we need a new place to rent. To accomplish all this we have been talking about faith and praying about giving in preparation for Commitment Sunday when we will bring our cash/check gifts and make commitments to give to the Daring Faith Next Chapter Fund for the next three years. Our goals is $250,000. This offering will secure us a place to meet for worship and ministry and provide a smooth transition in leadership so our church has a long and solid future.
Packing and Moving Saturday & Sunday
Tomorrow, Saturday, at 10:00 am we will start packing and moving. We hope to get just about everything moved to storage that day except for what we will need for our last Sunday. We will also do additional packing and moving after the service on Sunday, June 24. We could use a few people that can lift heavy things to come at 9 am. Reply to this email if you plan to come and help on Saturday especially if you can come at 9 am.
