Garage Sale Meeting ~ Sunday, April 15th at 11:30am in the Church Office
Please make every effort to attend this meeting when we will discuss this year’s Garage Sale which is scheduled for September 29th 2018. Please bring your notes, ideas answers to these questions about the Garage Sale:

  1. What changes that we made were “keepers”?   (Example) as irritating as the bell was, did it effectively communicate with you?
  2. If any, what were your, “Why in the world are we doing this?” items and what do you think would work better?
  3. What changes would you suggest for the future? Please explain/elaborate on your suggestion.
  4. If you have any other comments, suggestions or improvements note them here.

Pastors’ Class ~ begins April 16
It is an exciting time in the life of a young person to explore what faith means to them and how they want to live it out.  Community Christian Church wants to help in that exploration by having what we call “Pastors’ Class.”  Justin and Bryan would like to meet and explore this faith journey with our young people in 5th grade and older through three meetings.  We propose that we meet on Monday evenings at 7:00pm on April 16th, 23rd, 30th and May 7th.  

Week One we will talk about: Who Do We Belong To? Christ. Week Two we will talk about How Do I Belong? Faith. Our last 2 sessions we will talk about Living the Faith, and show the young people how we do baptisms, confirmation and any other questions they may have.  We encourage you to talk with your young people about this journey, and know that Justin and Bryan are honored and humbled to help anyway we can on this faith journey.  Our time together will be an hour and the young people will have a little homework to be done between the sessions.  
This journey will be enhanced for them if you will engage them in this process.  We are excited about this time and hope that your young person will be able to experience this journey with us.  Please call Bryan if you have any questions (847-664-0577) or email him (Bryan@CCCLincolnshire.org) and tell him about your interest in participating.  Blessings and we look forward to talking with you soon.

Dessert & Appetizer Auction Fundraiser ~ April 22
The CCC Youth and Mission Trip attendees are gearing up for the WILDLY popular Dessert Auction Fundraiser after the 10:00am service on April 22nd.  We’re adding appetizers this year, just to change things up a bit. There will be a live auction with about 5 to 8 items and a silent auction with additional items you can bring home or schedule to be made for you on the date of your choice. With Justin Larson as the auctioneer, it surely will be a lively fellowship time, so please come and support our 2018 Youth Mission Trip to San Augustine, Texas. 

Are you willing to contribute a dessert or an appetizer for this wonderful event supporting our youth? The item can be made for the event or promised at a later date – or even both! We’d also like to know if you would consider offering the dessert/appetizer prize twice (i.e. to the next highest bidder). Please let us know:
* Your Name & Phone Number
* Dessert(s) &/or Appetizer(s) to be made
* Made to take home on April 22nd or made at a later date?
* Can the dessert/appetizer be offered twice (or more) to the next highest bidder?
Thank you so much for your support!

Raising Funds Through Service to Others
Currently our youth are offering services to CCC members and friends. If you need something done, chances are they can help! Also watch for Community Nights at Restaurants, share the dates with friends and show up for a meal together.
Everyone, not just those going on the Mission Trip, are encouraged to find a creative way to raise funds. We are sending our church family to represent all of us. They will build community both physically and emotionally by sharing the light of God’s love with everyone they encounter as they help rebuild what others have lost after hurricanes and flooding last summer. They will make us proud!
Your generosity is very much appreciated.Thank you!
Check the Youth Board in Friendship Hall for services being offered, including:
* Babysitting
* Home Organizing
* Irish Dancing Show
* Handmade Greeting Cards
* Meditation Workshop 

ONGOING EVENTS

Worship Services ~ Sundays, 8:00 & 10:00am
The 8:00am Worship Service is informal and held in Lanier Hall – the chapel attached to the
office building.
The 10:00am Worship Service features a children’s sermon followed by Sunday School while the adults continue with the rest of the traditional service. It is held in the Sanctuary.

Adult Sunday School ~ Sunday, 9:00am
Teresa Elliott will be leading our Adult Sunday School every Sunday in the church office from 9-9:30am. It will be a brief, yet insightful time to grow in our faith together.

REVIVE Youth Group ~ Sundays, 11:15am – 12:15pm
For youth in 5th through 12th grades, we have regular weekly meetings after church on Sundays and a special Youth Worship time on the 1st & 3rd Sunday  each month
. During the summer, the Mission Trip is the highlight! Along with bonfires, outings, games and varied service projects make this THE place for youth! Click here for more.

1st & 3rd Sunday REVIVE Worship at 10:00am and Coffee Talk at 11:15am
Plan to join your friends for these Youth Worship Events. This will be a unique service meeting in the Youth Room on the 3rd Sunday each month at 10:00am. Special lesson plans are being made by Justin and you will enjoy some of the usual worship customs like communion, etc. We are VERY excited to offer this alternative worship opportunity for the Youth of CCC and their friends – 6th grade and up for 1st Sunday and 4th grade and up for 3rd Sunday. After the services, high school aged youth will meet for Coffee Talk.


Sermon in the Round ~ Tuesdays, 10:00am
We meet every Tuesday at 10:00am for “Sermon in the Round” led by Pastor Bryan. We jump into the scripture and ask questions about the sermon in a group setting.  We also spend some time praying for one another and other prayer needs as they arise.  One of the best ways to get to know the people in your church is in small groups.  This is just one opportunity to grow in relationship as well as in your faith. Hope to see you on Tuesday!
