Dear CCC Family,
The Daring Faith series has started and I need this. The challenges we are facing right now as a church are stretching me so I need a deeper faith and this series, the book, and the memory verse are helping. Speaking of the memory verse, it is Matthew 9:29 “Then he touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith let it be done to you.”
Next Sunday, May 27, is Reunion Sunday when we will reflect on our church’s history at the lunch after the one service at 10:45 am. We are changing the location to La Hermosa Christian Church. In other words, we are going stay where we usually meet rather than going to a local school. It is just easier not moving all the equipment, tables, and chairs to the school. It will be a little chaotic after the service as we set up, but it is a family event so that will be okay.
There is sad news. Maria Romulo passed away this morning. She was the mother of Jonathan and David and grandmother of Josiah. Please pray for the family.
See you Sunday.
PS You can still get your Daring Faith information packet and devotional book this Sunday.
Daring Faith Spiritual Growth Campaign
The Daring Faith Campaign has one main goal, increase your faith and that of our church to help us in our everyday life and to get us ready for our church’s next chapter. We need to have increased faith as we find a new location, grow up more leaders and volunteers, renovate our building, and hire an associate minister. Part of this is the Daring Faith Giving Campaign through which we will raise the funds to renovate the building and hire the associate minister. Get your Daring Faith information packet and devotional book for the campaign today in the lobby. Sunday, June 24th, will be commitment Sunday for the Giving Campaign.
