Dear CCC Family,
The country, state, and city are slowly moving toward reopening. Small, ten or less, religious gatherings are now allowed as long as masks, social distancing, and other mitigation steps are taken. The president is pushing for a broader opening of houses of worship. Regardless of when we meet again, the school will not be available to us this summer. However, the carpeting in our building at 210 East 117th will be installed soon so it should be ready when we can meet again. Even if the number of people allowed to gather increases, we will need to limit the number of people who can attend in person. Our assembly room is small. To provide adequate social distancing we will only be able to seat around 20 people. When we do reopen, we will want to make sure we leave space for new people, those who are seeking God as a result of the crisis. We will continue to monitor the developments and resume Sunday gatherings when appropriate. We will keep you up to date.
Regardless of when we meet, we are doing Core52. 42 books are packed and ready to go. Please don’t procrastinate in requesting your free book. They are being sent at the Media Mail rate which is cheaper, but takes longer. And, it is not like when are meeting together in person and you could pick the book up the day we start. We plan to start reading together the week of Sunday, June 14 so please request your book in time for it to be mailed to you before we start. If you haven’t read about Core52 yet check it out here. Be sure to sign up to get your free book.
You have been great in continuing to give. Well done! You can give online, by text, or by mailing a check. If you mail a check, it may take longer for it to get deposit. The mail is a little slower and we wait to get several checks to deposit before making the trip to the post office.
Keep looking up. Jesus is always there.
Invite someone to watch our Sunday gathering with you. It is a lot easier than inviting them to join you in person on a Sunday. They don’t have to leave home and they can wear their pajamas. Go here on Facebook. Then, share the post on your timeline or send it to a friend.

If money talked, what would it say? You might be surprised that what it would say is pretty close to what Jesus did say two thousand years ago. In this four-session study, Andy Stanley offers an approach to money management that will make your life better and make you better at life. Whether you have a lot or a little, are a spender or a saver, you’ll find Andy’s insights challenging, refreshing, and extraordinarily practical.
