MEN'S SATURDAY MORNING BREAKFAST & STUDY BEGINS OCT. 6TH
Attention all men! Join us on Saturday's at 9 am for breakfast and "Seven Questions That Rattle in the Minds of Most Men." Being a man is daunting. Sometimes it seems as though everyone wants something from you ~ your wife, your kids, your boss, and maybe even God. The pressure of manhood can be enormous, and they're only intensified by the mixed messages you receive from culture. Does being a real man mean having a perfect family, a corner office, a luxury car, and a massive home? Or is there something more to life, a source of deeper satisfaction? The Bible has some surprising and counterintuitive things to say about being a man. Come join us, and bring a friend. Questions? E-mail email@example.com.

Pack your climbing gear and double check the weather conditions, because it's time to climb some mountains!
Middle School Ministry (Grades 5-8) We'll learn that what we're FOR is more important than what we're AGAINST, that getting to know Jesus is how we get to know God, that our value is determined by God, and that everyone matters to Jesus, so everyone should matter to us. Our relationship with Jesus fuels our love for God, others and ourselves. "Vital" is a five week series.

In the small groups we will dive deeper into discussion and the scripture that we cover on Sunday mornings. To join a group, click here.
12 Steps Christian Support Group. Life can be tough and sometimes we can't handle it alone ~ and God never intended for us to tackle life's difficulties by ourselves. This group's purpose is to provide support to people who are struggling with various compulsive issues that rob them of the joy & peace that God has intended. The group uses a Christian perspective on the 12 Step program. To sign up, please click here. Questions? Contact Barb Levine at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.

We are challenging every person who attends C.C.C. to put $1.00 per family member each Sunday into the Dollar Club box (located in the auditorium). At the end of each month, the money that has been given will be counted and given to a person, organization, project or a specific need that could really benefit from seeing God's love without any strings attached.
