Join us on Wednesday nights at 6:30 pm for fun activities and studies to help us better understand our relationship with God and each other.  We start a new series for May ~ "Family Feud."  Every family feuds.  Whether the latest feud is about curfews, chores, harsh words, someone's attitude, or someone else's questionable choices, everyone knows what it's like to experience conflict in a family.  In this series, we'll see how to let our relationship with God transform our relationships with our family members as we seek to be more patient, forgive more often, be more honoring, and show love more freely.  For more info on our Middle School ministry, e-mail shellee@communitychristianchurch.com.

NEW INTERNATIONAL CHILD SPONSORSHIP   

It's not too late to sponsor a child through New International!  Their vision is to proclaim Christ and make disciples globally by ending extreme poverty.  They serve in a couple dozen communities in rural Kenya, working with a highly inclusive ministry to address the physical, spiritual & emotional needs of children and their parents/guardians.  All of the children in the program are in extreme poverty.  Sponsoring a child is $30 a month, and provides physical, emotional & spiritual care.  Donors can communicate with children through e-mail & letters (and the children write back) and you also have an opportunity to visit your sponsored child through New International.  To sponsor a child, visit newsponsor.org.    

  

EXTREME GENEROSITY "DOLLAR CLUB"

We challenge everyone who attends C.C.C. to put $1 per family member each Sunday into the Dollar Club box (located in the auditorium).  At the end of each month, the money will be counted and given to a person, project or organization that could really benefit from seeing God's love without any strings attached.
