Dear CCC Family,
The retreat was a BLAST! Check out the retreat pictures. I hope you join us next year.
This Sunday we will wrap up the “Life on Mission” series with a message at 10:30 am and a class for adults at 12:00 pm. The 12:00 pm classes will then take a break until Sept 27 when adults will have two options. One will be PETER: His Life and Letters … lessons in spiritual growth from the Apostle the Lord changed from a fisherman to a fisher of men. The class will be taught by Norma Lozada. The other is yet to be determined.
Please read the announcements below as things will get busy this fall.
See you on Sunday!
Sunday, September 13
Jeff Butler will be preaching for both CCC and La Hermosa Christian Church on Sunday, September 13. After delivering the message for us, we will go upstairs to speak for LHCC where his message will be translated into Spanish. Although it will only be for that Sunday, it might be a good opportunity to invite a Spanish-speaking friend to hear his message.
Small Groups Resume
Participation in classes and small groups plays a big role in our growing in Christ. Beginning later in September some of the groups that took a summer break will resume and new groups will start. Right now we are looking for hosts and group leaders. Please circle “G” at the bottom of your completed Connection Card to indicate your interest in hosting or leading a group or speak with Jeff.
Eastern Christian Conference
The 2015 Eastern Christian Conference will be held in conjunction with the International Conference on Missions Oct. 29 – Nov. 1 in Richmond, Virginia. More information can be found online at www.theicom.org.
You’re Invited…to Bring Your Friends to Church!
Got friends and family members who haven’t been to church in a while…or maybe they’ve never come to church? Invite them to join us for our special Back to Church Sunday event on September 20th. We will start a special message series that Sunday, “Meet the God of Second Chances.” We will do a mailing to invite our neighbors to worship with us. Your extra gifts designated for the mailing would be helpful. We can mail invitations to 100 homes for each $30 you give. Please indicate that your gift is for the mailing on your giving envelope.
CCC is hosting movie night in the parking lot on Friday, September 18, at 8:00 pm.
In light of the upcoming Muppet TV series we decided to show The Muppet Movie at the next Movie Night in the Parking Lot. It will be like an old-fashioned drive-through experience…minus the car! Chairs and popcorn will be provided. The event is free and open to the public. If it rains, the movies will be shown inside.
Community Connection Event
On Saturday, September 19, CCC and La Hermosa will set up tables on the sidewalk to connect with the community. We will hand out water, popsicles, popcorn, Bibles, and general information about both churches. There will be an area for children to get their faces painted. It will be a time to connect with the community and each other. See Crystal to volunteer to help for an hour or two.
Get Fit God’s Way: DVD-based workout – Saturdays
Work out with us on Saturday mornings at 9:00am and get Shazzy Fit. Shazzy Fitness is a Christian contemporary dance fitness program.

Special Shazzy Fitness Events, September 12
There will be an instructor certification class on September 12, from 9am to 4pm. As part of the certification class, there will be a special work out session in the parking lot open to everyone at 11am.
