Is Jesus Enough? Congregational Meeting This Sunday.

Is Jesus Enough? Congregational Meeting This Sunday.


Dear CCC Family,

We will have a congregational meeting this Sunday at 1:00 pm to vote on the sale of our current property and the purchase of another. There is a link to a presentation about in an article below.

The “Not a Fan” series will end this Sunday. The concluding message asks the question “Is Jesus Enough?” Of course, it also answers it with a resounding “YES!”

Just a reminder, I will be leaving Sunday, August 13, for a trip to Ukraine where Laurie and I will visit our daughter Amy and tour the country. We will have guest speakers on August 20 (David Chicaguala) and August 27 (William Gomez). Thanks in advance to everyone who will work hard to keep things running smoothly.

See you Sunday!
