Dear CCC Family,
Once again we had a good annual congregational meeting last Sunday. You can read about it below.
I met with one of the partners that owns the property we would like to buy or exchange ours for. He was very nice and knowledgeable, but non-committal. He said he would talk to the other partners and get back to me. One way or another we are finally getting to a conclusion in our pursuit of that property. Pray that God will guide everyone in this decision.
I am not sure when would be a better time to do a series on prayer than now. God’s timing is perfect. The 40 Days fo Prayer Campaign starts on February 24. However, this week’s message is designed to get us ready for it. I hope you will be there for it.
See you Sunday!
PS There will not be any classes at 9:30 am or 12:30 pm this Sunday. They will resume on February 24.
Annual Congregational Meeting
At the our annual congregational meeting on February 10, John Dyke and Russell Kraft were affirmed as elders and Jon Dyke as a trustee. In addition, the new bylaws were unanimously approved. The new bylaws contain a statement of faith and new membership requirements. The new membership requirements are in effect for all new members. Existing members have until July 1 to meet the new membership requirements to remain members. One of the new membership requirement is to attend the four session Join the Team! Membership Class. Plans are being made to offer it three times before July 1.
40 Days of Prayer Series
A new church-wide campaign will begin on Sunday, February 24. 40 Days of Prayer will unite our congregation in prayer. We will learn how to pray with more confidence and greater faith than ever before. The campaign has several aspects, Sunday messages, small groups, Scripture memorization, and daily devotional prayer prompt. 40 Days of Prayer Journal and Discussion Guide will be available at a suggested price of $10. If you would consider hosting a small group in your home for the seven weeks of the campaign, talk to Jeff , circle the “H” at the bottom of your completed Communication Card on Sunday, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
