Dear CCC Family,
No reservations required starting this Sunday at either the 10:00am or 11:30am in person services. Seating is limited so come early.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! We have had people painting inside the building and staining our new baptistry. Thank you, John, Heather, Claribel, David, Ira, Bladimir, Crystal, Priscilla, George, Beth, Jon, Laury, and Denise. Great work!
We have an online children’s class. If you want more information, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you soon in person or online.
PS Watch for a letter from me next week. Yes, a paper letter delivered by the U.S. post office.
September 27 – Why bother with baptism?
Sometimes people wonder what baptism is all about. They wonder why they should bother with it when they already believe. This message will look at what the Bible says about baptism and where it fits in our relationship with God.
October 4 – New Series. Emotions – Get the good feelings.
Although Christians sometimes talk like emotions are bad, the truth is that they are part of the way God made us. God has emotions and we are made in the image of God, so we have emotions too. The challenge is to understand our emotions so we have good (moral, God honoring) feelings, not bad (immoral, self-centered) feelings. Join us as we learn how to get the good feelings.
We have a new baptistry for our new building and we plan to use it soon. If you are interested in being baptized or have questions, give us a call at 212 875-8621, email us at email@example.com, or talk to me any Sunday you are there. You could also attend the Q&A listed below.
