Dear CCC Family,
In case you missed the news last Sunday, Community Christian Church is moving. We will be meeting for Sunday worship at a new place beginning Sunday, July 1. La Hermosa Christian Church has decided it is in their best interest to stop renting to us. We appreciate the five years that we have been able to meet there and wish them well. Our new location has not yet been determined. Please pray about that. A detailed update will be provided next week after Easter. This may seem like bad news, but God works in all things for our good so in the end He will make it a good thing. The death of Jesus seemed like a bad thing, but God made it good by raising Jesus from the dead. He will make this move good for us as well.
As you know people are more like to attend church on Easter Sunday. Who is that one person you’d love to join you at Community Christian Church for Easter Sunday? Say a bold prayer and invite them!
The Easter Egg Hunt was great! Over 100 children and adults attend the hunt last Saturday and some joined us for worship on Sunday. Thank you to all our volunteers who helped and especially Laurie Archer and Crystal Astrachan for coordinating the event. Great job!
Also, thank you to Mon Sapitan for the beautiful Easter decorations in our meeting space. As usually, Mon did a wonderful job.
See you and your guest Sunday!
PS Please do me a big favor and arrive early this Sunday. It makes a better impression on our guest and gets you there in time to welcome and meet them.
This Sunday is Easter Sunday!
It is a great Sunday to attend worship and to bring a friend. Because it is Easter people are more likely to say “Yes” to your invitation. Our Easter series will be “Easter For Everyone.” This series opens the door for all people at Easter!
Good Friday Service.
We will have a Good Friday Service on Friday, March 30, at 7:00 PM.
Daytime Small Group?
An evening small group doesn’t work for everyone. If you would like to attend a small group that meets during the day, use the back of your Communication Card on Sunday or email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know which day and what time would be best for you.
Beginning Sunday, April 8, we will start a new message series in entitled, “Can You Relate? Building Healthy Relationships with Friends and Family.” It will be helpful to you and anyone you bring with you.
Pizza with the Pastor
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 8, after the second service. Children are welcome to attend, but childcare is not provided. Let us know you are coming by circling the “P” at the bottom of your completed Connection Card and add how many people you will bring; alternatively, you may email email@example.com or call the church office at (212) 875-8621. It will be around 90 minutes.
