Dear CCC Family,
I am back from our trip to Ukraine to visit our daughter, Amy, and tour the country. Laurie and I had a great time with Amy and my sister, Pat. We learned a lot and fell in love with Ukraine. We have much to share, but that will have to wait until September 3. We and others from our church will be away this weekend on a retreat at a camp in the Catskill Mountains. William Gomez will speak on Sunday. Many of you know William as a worship leader. He is a good speaker as well and you will be blessed by the message he will bring. Thanks in advance to everyone who will work hard to keep things running smoothly while we are away. I look forward to being back next Sunday, September 3.
Junior Church will not meet this Sunday. Children can attend the service with their parents. It will resume next week.
Congregational Meeting Results
Two resolutions were voted on: one to sell our property at 159 East 118th Street and the other the buy the property at 210 East 117th Street. Both of the resolutions passed with 93.5% voting to approve them.
Adult Bible Fellowships
The Adult Bible Fellowships are taking a break until September. The 10:00 am ABF led by Russell Kraft, The Complete Christian: Becoming What You Were Meant to Be, will resume on September 3. Other ABFs will resume in the following weeks.
We have small groups that meet during the week. Some are taking a summer break and will resume in September. Others are still meeting. Email, firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 212 875-8621 for more detailed information.
Guest Worship Team
We will have a guest leading worship on Sunday, September 3. It is the group “Boys on the Bus.” They will be on tour in New York at that time. Be sure to thank our usual worship team as they get a break that weekend.
Fun and Health Fest
Community Christian Church will hold a special outreach event, a Fun and Health Fest, on Saturday afternoon, September 9, from 3:30pm – 6:30pm. This outreach event is designed to encourage relationships between our guests and our church, and our guests and God. Outreach is more than simply getting families and children into our building. It is all about relationships. The Fun and Health Fest will have craft-based activities for children and health-focused activities for adults.
