Hello CCC Family,

I wanted to make you aware of a couple of things for this coming Sunday, September 7.   As you may recall, this Sunday is KICK-OFF SUNDAY!  That means we will be “Kicking-off’ our annual ministries and inviting you all to participate in the greater ministry of the church.

Beginning this Sunday I will be preaching a 4 week sermon series called Forgiveness In Covenant.  The following are the sermon titles and Biblical texts for those sermons:

  1. Amazing Grace – Luke 7:31-50
  2. The Work of the Body – Luke 17:1-10
  3. Things Jesus Didn’t Say – Luke 22:14-20
  4. Forgiveness and the Holy Spirit – Acts 2:37-47

This series is meant to invite our congregation to discern God’s blessings through forgiveness and our work to forgive a broken and hurting world so that we might have compassion and serve the world. I hope you will consider making it a priority to attend the whole series.

On another important note, the Evangelism/Membership Ministry (in partnership with the Christian Family Life Ministry) would like to invite you to stay after worship for a Carry-in Fellowship Hour Picnic!  What we want you to bring is a dish to share.  If your LAST name begins with A – L please bring a salad to share.  If your Last name begins with M – Z please bring a vegetable (and a favorite table game to play.  There will be corn hole, but if you like to play cards, or have a favorite children’s game you would be willing to share, we want you to bring it and enjoy some fellowship after we eat. Please remember, you are welcome as you are. If you do not have food or a game to share, come and share your fellowship!

Looking forward to seeing you all Sunday! Happy Kick-off Weekend,

Pastor Liz DeWeese
