Dear CCC Family,
It was officially announced on Sunday that John Price was offered and has accepted the Associate Minister position at Community Christian Church. Lord willing, he and Heather will be moving here in early September. John will start with us part-time and become full-time at some point in the future. Pray for John’s ministry with us, John’s and Heather’s move, and their adjustment to CCC and NYC.
I was not able to work out all the details to have the baptisms at the school building this Sunday. We will do them at a later date. I will be talking with a local pastor on Monday about using their building and baptistry.
Work is picking up speed on our building at 210 East 117th Street. Demolition of some interior walls as been completed, most of the new framing has been done, and plumbing work has started. Electrical work will likely start next week and the HVAC equipment will be ordered as well. Continue to pray for the renovation including the safety of the workers.
We have tweaked the roll out of the new membership policy. Please read about it below.
See you Sunday!
PS Remember to sign up for the cook out.
Tuesday Bible Study
There is a new Bible study on Tuesdays at 7:30 at the home of Crystal Astrachan, 1787 Madison Avenue, which is between 117th and 118th streets. We are looking at the parables of Jesus. Everyone is welcome to attend.
For logistical reasons we will not be baptizing people at the school this coming Sunday. We are talking with a nearby church about using their baptistry and hope to arrange a date soon.
On Day membership Class – July 20
All four sessions of the Join the Team! Membership Class will be presented on one day on Saturday, July 20, starting at 9:30 am and ending at 12:30 pm. We will meet at 1787 Madison Avenue which is between 117th and 118th streets. Please circle the “J” on your completed Communication Card or email email@example.com to let us know you will be attending.
Cookout – July 27
Crystal is hosting a cookout for CCC on Saturday, July 27, in the courtyard of her apartment building, 1787 Madison Avenue, from 12-5 pm. Hotdogs, hamburgers, chicken, corn and snacks will be provided. If you’d like to attend, help, or bring anything, please sign up here.
As most of you know, we are making a transition in our membership policy. The new membership system will go into use on August 4. However, we are going to be recognizing people who have fulfilled the new membership requirements and signed the new Membership Agreement throughout the summer rather than do it all on August 4. People will be in and out during the summer and there are people who need to complete the Membership Class or get baptized to meet the requirements. They will be recognized as soon as they do so. Whether you become a member under the new system or not, you will always be loved and welcomed at CCC just like before.
