Groups meeting. Beginnings series.

Groups meeting. Beginnings series.

Dear CCC Family,

Laurie and I are on our way to St. Louis for a wedding and then on to Memphis to visit our grandchildren. The online morning devotions and Monday prayer will not meet next week, June 22 through 26. The Wednesday night evening worship with William will met at 7:30 pm as usual. We will announce future online plans in next week’s e-newsletter.

Last week we had the introduction message for the Beginnings series. This week we will talk about creation.

I hope you had a good week with chapter one of Core52. It is not too late to start reading. Go to for more details.

Keep looking up. Jesus is always there.


PS The Friday night small group will start next week, June 26th, at 7:30 pm.

Three Sunday Online Gathering Options
– 10:00am
– 11:00am Facebook or YouTube
– 11:30am

Invite someone to watch our Sunday gathering with you. It is a lot easier than inviting them to join you in person on a Sunday. They don’t have to leave home and they can wear their pajamas. Go here on Facebook. Then, share the post on your timeline or send it to a friend.

Core52 Small Groups
As much as you will get by reading the book, Core 52, you will get even more if you will meet weekly with others to discuss it in a Core52 small group. In June we will be starting online, virtual, small groups for you to do that. Let me encourage you to participate in one of the groups. They will meet for an hour each week to discuss the reading. We are asking you to be part of a group for five weeks to see how you like it. We will be using Zoom, a video conferencing platform that is easy to use. It is available for your smart phone, tablet, or computer. Because meeting virtually is different from meeting in person, we want to keep the groups small, 4-5 screens. We have 4 existing groups that are full, but we are adding more. Check out the list of groups below and email the day of the one you would like to join to It will only be for five weeks to start. Because they are online groups, you will need choose one so we can send you a link to the meeting. The Friday night group will be a little different. It will be an open larger group to start the meeting, but the meeting will later break out into smaller rooms for discussion if needed. You can attend by clicking the link below. I would encourage you to join one of the other groups. Attend the Friday group only if that is the best night for you or if you want to check out what it is like rather than committing to a group. The groups will start the week of Sunday, June 14. The first meeting will be an orientation meeting and the content of the book will be discussed the following week.

  • Tuesday Night @ 7:30 pm with Russell Kraft
  • Wednesday Morning @ 10:00 am with Jean Kraft
  • Thursday Night @ 7:30 pm with Crystal Astrachan
