Dear CCC Family,
If you missed the Pancake Breakfast, you missed a treat. The pancakes were great and the fellowship even better. We appreciate those who provided it and those that fought the Marathon traffic to get there. We had a good turnout in spite of the travel difficulties.
The Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes are due this Sunday. If you didn’t pack a shoebox, you can help by making a contribution to cover the cost of delivering them around the world. There are other ways to touch lives this Christmas season. The Angel Tree Project is one and our Annual Christmas Offering is another. Details about it will be released next week. Read about the Angel Tree Project below.
Let me encourage you to come to our showing of the I Can Only Imagine movie on December 7. It is well done and would be a great movie to invite a friend to. It is free. You can read about it below and watch the trailer by clicking here.
See you Sunday.
PS Please continue to pray about the property negotiations.
Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes Due This Sunday, November 11
Be sure to bring your packed Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes on Sunday, November, 11, so we can transport then to the drop off location for you.
A big thank you to Jon Dyke and his crew especially assistant chefs Olivia and Evan for the great Pancake Breakfast last Sunday. Congratulations to our prize winners Iris, Chanda, and Laurie.

Angel Tree Project
We are participating with Prison Fellowship in their Angel Tree program that provides Christmas gifts for children with a parent in prison. If you would like to help, circle the “A” on your completed Communication Card or speak with Elba Rodriguez. The presents will be given to the children at a Christmas Party for them on Sunday December 9.
