AC on! In Person Update. Picnic!

Dear CCC Family, We continue to make progress on our plans to resume in person services on August 23. The air conditioning was turned on and is working fine.

We will have two services, but we will still have to limit the number of…

Picnic Sign Up. 11:15am participation doubles.

Dear CCC Family, We are having a picnic on Saturday, August 8. Please read about it below. Sign up if you plan to attend or even if you think you probably will. We need to choose a space large enough for our potential group size. The number of people who watched our last morning gathering at 11:15am doubled last week. It is at ccnyc.online.church. That site is a better experience than Facebook and it is easier to interact with each other…

In Person Worship Plans. 11:15 Time Change. PICNIC!!!

Dear CCC Family, The tentative plan is to resume in person services on Sunday, August 23. A final decision will be made as we get closer to that date. Look for an email specifically about resuming in person services soon. We realize that many people are reluctant to resuming attending. That is completely understandable and we do not want anyone to feel pressured to attend. In fact, we won’t have space for everyone to attend. We will live stream the…
