Dear CCC Family,
Please remember to set your clocks forward when you got to bed Saturday night. It is that time of the year when we change to Daylight Savings Time.
Community Christian Church is looking to hire an associate minister and we have posted the position at several colleges and universities. Would you pray that God would guide us to the right person for this position? You can see the ministry description by clicking here.
Also, pray for our plans to renovate 210 East 117th Street. The architect has been working on plans that will soon be submitted to NYC Department of Buildings. The time to get permits can be long so we will likely do the renovation in two stages. This will speed up the time table to get the residential portion useable and the Butlers moved in.
There is a lot going on! Your prayer and participation are appreciated!
See you Sunday!
PS You can still join us tomorrow for the first meeting of the Leadership Catalyst Team. Just show up at 9:00 AM. Read about it below.
Easter For Everyone
Exciting news to share! Our Easter series will be “Easter For Everyone.” This series opens the door for all people at Easter! It’s the perfect time to invite someone to church! Use the included postcard and take some more to invite people to join us on Easter Sunday, April 1.
Good Friday Service.
We will have a Good Friday Service on Friday, March 30, at 7:00 PM.
Leadership Catalyst Team
CCC needs leaders. We are not alone as there seems to be a leadership shortage throughout churches and our country. The Leadership Catalyst Team will develop a leadership development plan for Community Christian Church based on material used by thriving churches across the country. The first meeting will be Saturday, March 10, at 9:00 AM.
Men need help. Men need Christ. Women need the men in their lives to be mature followers of Christ. For these reasons CCC will start a ministry specifically for men in 2018. If you would like to be part of the initial organizing team, circle the “M” at the bottom of your Communication Card on Sunday or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tuesday Night Bible Study
The Tuesday night Bible study meets at 7:30 pm at the church building. We are studying Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians.
