Dear CCC Family,
It is getting busy. Tomorrow is the Metro Christian Convention. You can still attend by registering at the door.
The Daring Faith Spiritual Growth Campaign will start soon. There is an Introduction Message and Special Meeting on Sunday, May 6. There will be one service at 10:45 am and the meeting at 12:00 pm on that day. This is important so you will want to make an extra effort to be there. The books that go along with the campaign will be given on that day. You can start reading them that week or wait and start the following week.
The actual campaign will start the following Sunday, May 13, and the small groups and ABFs that are using the Daring Faith material will start that week as well. We are still open to starting new groups. If you would like to host one, let me know. It will only last six weeks so it would be a good time to try hosting one without making a long term commitment. We are considering something new, a Sunday group that meets at 1:00 pm. It would be for those that want to come to the 11:30 am worship service but are not able to attend the 10:00 am group. If you would possibly attend a Sunday, 1:00 pm group, email me at email@example.com or circle the “S” on your completed Communication Card on Sunday.
Finally, check out the article about the Chris Tomlin concert below.
See you Sunday!
PS Keep praying for our building renovation, search for an Associate Minister, and hunt for a new Sunday morning meeting place.
Pizza with the Pastor – This Sunday, April 22
If you are new, a great first step to learn more about Community Christian Church is to attend Pizza with the Pastor. You will learn more about our history, vision, and how to get connected. You’ll have an opportunity to ask questions and get to know Pastor Jeff and other church members.
The next Pizza with the Pastor will be on Sunday, April 22, after the second service. Children are welcome to attend, but childcare is not provided. Let us know you are coming by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or call the church office at (212) 875-8621. It will be around 60 minutes.
Even if you aren’t new, if you have never attend a Pizza with the Pastor you are welcome to attend,
Metro Christian Convention.
The Metro Christian Convention is a one-day gathering for worship, teaching, and encouragement. This year’s convention will be on Saturday, April 21, from 9:00-5:00 and is held at Evangel Church, 39-20 27th Street in Long Island City, Queens. You can learn more at www.metrochristiannyc.com. You can still go and register in person.
Chris Tomlin: Worship Night in America.
Chris Tomlin, we sing several of his songs, will be in concert at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, Thursday night, May 3, at 7:00 pm. Jeff has tickets for the Lower Level section 7. See him on Sunday, if you are interested in buying one.
Update Your Contact Information.
Periodically we update the information in the church records to make sure it is current and complete. This is especially important now so we can keep you informed about our coming change of location and future plans. Please complete the Information Form on Sunday and put it in the box on the Information Table in the lobby.
Daring Faith Spiritual Growth Campaign.
What an exciting time to be part of Community Christian Church! We own a build! We need to renovate it. We have grown! We need to hire an Associate Minister. We are losing our place of worship. We need a new Sunday location. We have people who want to serve and lead. We need to train and equip them. The Daring Faith Campaign is going to help us do all of that.
The campaign will include:
- Weekly services and messages
- The Daring Faith book with daily readings & a small group discussion guide
- Small group/Adult Bible Fellowship participation with DVD teaching
- Giving commitments
Be sure to be there on May 6 when we present the campaign in greater detail.
Join us for Reunion Sunday on May 27. Former members will reconnect with old friends, meet new friends, and see what God has done through their contribution to CCC. Current members will meet former members who served sacrificially to build the church that blesses them today. Read more about it and let us know you are coming by clicking here.
We Are Moving
Community Christian Church is moving. We will be meeting for Sunday worship at a new place beginning Sunday, July 1. We will let you know where as soon as the new location is determined. You can read more about it by clicking here.
