Dear CCC Family,
If you were at our Sunday gathering, you know we are asking people to pray about CCC’s starting a service in French. Salomon Matasima was a minister in Congo and Caroline, his wife, led a women’s ministry. They have met several French speaking people who are interested in being part of a French service. Please pray about this as we consider starting a service for French speaking people.
CCC will be sponsoring another faith based movie on Saturday, April 13. We are doing this to reach out to the community, strengthen your faith, and provide you with a great opportunity to invite someone. You can read about it below.
See you Sunday!
PS Please remember the Join the Team! Membership Class on March 23. We will cover all four sessions in one day. Details are below.
40 Days of Prayer Series
Our current spiritual growth campaign is called 40 Days of Prayer. We are learning how to pray with more confidence and greater faith than ever before. The 40 Days of Prayer Journal and Discussion Guide is available at a suggested price of $10. If you can’t afford it, take one free.
Take Away Tuesday on Facebook
CCC has started something new. On Tuesdays, we will post the previous Sunday’s message on our Facebook page. In addition, we will encourage those who heard it to post what their take away from the message was. It might be something that was said, something you thought, or something you are doing. Go to www.facebook.com/cccnyc to join the “Take Away Tuesday” discussion. Thank you to those who have been posting!

“The Case for Christ” Movie – Saturday, April 13
In 1980, Lee Strobel’s award-winning investigative reporting earned him a promotion to legal editor at the Chicago Tribune. Things at home weren’t going nearly as well. His wife Leslie’s newfound faith in Christ compelled
Lee to utilize his journalistic and legal training to disprove the claims of Christianity—pitting his resolute atheism against her growing faith.
Based on Strobel’s best-selling book of the same name, THE CASE FOR CHRIST movie is a dramatic and heartfelt telling of their compelling journey. CCC will show the movie on Saturday, April 13, 5:00 pm at Public School 96 where we meet for worship. Invite people to attend with you. It is free. You can watch the trailer by clicking here.
