Celebration Sunday at CCC!

Today was nothing short of an AMAZING day of the church celebrating at church.  I have dreamed of the time when we come to church together and instead of using it as a "refill" gathering (although important) for our gathering to be more of a celebration encounter.  Today was that day.
Not only was the worship anointed and powerful this morning, but God's presence was evident for healing.  We prayed for and laid hands on several who need a touch from God.
Our speaker this morning, Chris Childers delivered a timely message as we concluded our "Faith Catalysts" series, you can listen online by clicking, HERE

All week our church has been, well--- being the church.  We kicked off Monday by delivering school supplies to our neighbors next door, Millbrooke Elementary.

We then continued on Wednesday to provide a fun,safe and meaningful "Wet and Wild Wednesday" to our neighbors with free food, water slides, backpack give-a-ways and just a great time together.

Another monumental thing happened today, before I became Pastor of Christ Community Church they were in a kitchen fundraising program.  Over the last two years we have spent our energy and resources focused on our Children's Ministry and building renovations such as parking lot resurfacing, and general updating.  However over the last few months we have challenged our people to give towards the installing and renovation for a practical and functional kitchen to meet the needs of the various ministries.

It's been a long journey and three weeks ago I shared we were $3000 away from getting it all paid for, then last week because of a "God idea" given to one of our members we only needed $1700.  Well this week another member stopped in before leaving town to make a donation and as of Friday we only needed $1000!!!
Saturday morning our men's ministry hosted a breakfast and they raised $150 to pay off that $1000 and TODAY the remaining $850. came in!!!!!!  Simply amazing what God does when there is unity in His house!

Love God, love others.
