Dear CCC Family,
Things are going well! March is going to be a great month for CCC. The 40 Days of Prayer series is going well. As are the ABFs and small groups. I am looking forward to the one-day Join the Team! Membership Class on March 23.
Looking ahead, April will be a busy and good month too. The Metro Christian Convention will be on April 6 and it should be a good one. The main speak, Dr. Chuck Sackett, is excellent and the workshops look to be good too. This would be a year to make an extra effort to attend. On Saturday April 13, we will show another movie at PS 96, “The Case of Christ.” This is the story of Lee Strobel the award winning Chicago Tribune journalist and former atheist who became a follower of Christ. We will show it in the late afternoon. Most importantly, April 21 will be Easter. Resurrection Sunday is a great day to invite people to attend church with you to learn about and celebrate the resurrection of Jesus.
See you Sunday!
PS Remember to set your clock forward one hour when you go to bed Saturday night.
40 Days of Prayer Series
We just started a new church-wide spiritual growth campaign called 40 Days of Prayer. We will learn 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 Tuesday, 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.
Metro Christian Convention
The Metro Christian Convention is a one-day gathering for worship, teaching, and encouragement on Saturday, April 6, from 9:00-4:30 at Evangel Church, 39-20 27th Street in Long Island City, Queens.
