COMMUNITY CHRISTIAN CHURCH UPDATE ~ JULY 2019 

 

"SOLES FOR SOULS" SHOE DRIVE    

We're collecting shoes for "Soles 4 Souls," a non-profit organization that provides shoes to children & adults around the world in extreme poverty and during national disasters.  Unsanitary conditions in developing nations expose many to illness & death where walking is the primary mode of transportation.  S4S also gives  small business opportunities to families to lift them out of poverty.  We will collect shoes now through Sunday, Aug. 4th.  They can be any size, infant to adult, and in any condition.  We even want single shoes!  Drop them off in the box in the lobby.  Last year we collected over 1,500 pairs of shoes, and we hope to beat that number this year! 

 

NEEDED:  FIRST IMPRESSIONS MINISTRY LEADERS    

We're looking for friendly, outgoing people who enjoy talking to visitors, and can help organize volunteers one Sunday a month to cover our First Impressions responsibilities.  For more information, please contact Bob Sisson ~ sissonbob7@gmail.com

We're excited to have our new building open to our entire community!  If you need a place that has free wi-fi and a friendly atmosphere, we're it!  Anyone is welcome to use the lobby for business meetings or if you need a place to work.  The doors are open Monday through Friday from 8 am to 4:30 pm.  If you would like to reserve a room for meetings, or would like to use the gym, contact Jason Kauffman for info ~ Jason@communitychristianchurch.com.

HIGH SCHOOL NEWS (GRADES 9-12) …

MIDDLE SCHOOL NEWS (GRADES 5-8) ... 

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.  Our next meeting will be July 24th.  Sunday morning study ~ "More Than A Hashtag."  Our world is not as it should be. There is pain, evil & injustice all around us. In the age of social media, it’s easier than ever to stay informed about all sorts of injustices, but is sending a tweet, posting a selfie, or sharing a video about an inspiring cause really all it takes to make a difference in the world? Or is it possible that justice is about something much more than a hashtag? In this series, we’ll challenge ourselves to not just post about the injustices around us, but to actually do something about them by loving mercy, acting justly, and walking humbly. Mark your calendar for these fun events: Canoe Trip on July 21st … “Click, Grab & Get” outing on July 31st.   For more info on our Middle School Ministry, e-mail shellee@communitychristianchurch.com

 

12 STEP SUPPORT GROUP MEETS EVERY WED. AT 6:45 PM 

12 Steps Christian Support Group (Classroom #201)  Life can be tough, and sometimes we can't handle it alone.  This group's purpose is to provide support to people who are struggling with issues that rob them of the joy & peace that God has intended (anger, workaholic, etc.)  We use a Christian perspective on the 12 Step Group.  Contact Barb Levine at barbohio@gmail.com for info.
