WED. NIGHT GROUPS (ADULTS & KIDS) AT 6:30 PM
Elevate Jr. (Age 3-K) ~ Come to the mats and learn about the way God wants us to live. Join Kora & Jimmie as Sensei Bob teaches them about God's plan for their lives. As the girls punch & kick their way through the martial arts tournament, they will learn about patience, kindness, self control & prayer. Please Note: This class is only available for parents who attend Wednesday night small groups, worship team practice, or Creative Arts Meeting.
Elevate (Gr. 1-4) ~ "Dojo" ... Come join Felicia Gutters in the dojo as she must practice the right moves. She also learns the principles of discipline, self respect, confidence, respect, endurance, integrity, loyalty and leadership! Please Note: This class is open to all children ~ you can drop them off and pick them up!
Experience - Middle School (Gr. 5-8) ~ Join us for games, snack and the series “Overcoming Temptations.” We’ll be looking at what temptations are (character & spiritual tests that are part of life). Everyone has temptations, but God is faithful and will always help us overcome them. We do not have the strength to resist temptations by ourselves. God gives us His power & strength to resist and overcome temptations as we trust Him. We'll look at how to resist temptations from the devil, and that sometimes the most powerful thing we can do is just be still ~ just stand firm on the Word & promises of God And in so doing, you will wear the devil out, and he will flee from you. We will also learn that influence is a powerful thing. Good influence is awesome, but negative influence can be detrimental on so many levels. Influence comes from everything around us ~ our family, friends, social media, what we listen to/watch on radio & tv, etc. It's critical that we allow God's Word to shape our lives and be the compass that directs us!
Young Families Small Group ~ Resumes Nov. 1st. Caleb & Kylie Payne, along with their 2 young children, want to start a new small group for families with young kids. We'll begin "Life on Mission," and then dive into more things that parents with young kids will find useful. Meeting in Classroom #206.
NEW! Biblical Marriages in a Broken World ~ Join the marriage group for a new study that starts on Oct. 25.

He also shares profound advice for married parents and single parents alike about raising their kids. This insightful, entertaining, and practical resource is ideal for marriage groups. Jeff & Aisia Chandler are leading this study. Meeting in Classroom #300 (Modular building).
Raising Grateful Kids In An Entitled World ~ Join Scott & Regina Schroer as we learn how to lead and love our children in a Biblical way that teaches respect, responsibility, and the value of serving others.

October 22 ~ Team Training and Roll Play at 1:00 pm (Twp)
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. Please contact Barb Levine at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info, or click here. We meet on Wednesday's at 6:45 pm at the Twp. (Classroom #209)
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.
