The holiday season is fast approaching.  Throughout the month of December, we usually have more responsibilities, more events to attend, and less time for ourselves. As you actively participate in this season of Christ’s birth, consider giving yourself the gift of just 90 minutes. On December 4th, be prepared to nurture your mind, body, and spirit as we practice meditation together by candlelight. 

Together, we will be better equipped to be present in each moment of this holiday season.

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 (on break until August)
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!

Soup Kitchen
For many years, members and friends of Community Christian Church have been serving at the Holy Family Soup Kitchen once a month, but now we are able to serve ANY Wednesday and Thursday! If you would like to serve, these are the new guidelines to follow:
1. If you are attending on the 2nd Wednesday of the month, please let us know. For other days, please contact the day’s coordinator BEFORE 12 NOON on the day you plan to serve, letting them know how many are coming and at what time you will arrive.
2. Plan to arrive as early as 3:00pm, but no later than 4:30pm.

3. Youth must be at least 11 years old and friends are always welcome!
Please contact the church office for the Soup Kitchen Coordinators’ information.

Choir Practice ~ Thurs
days, 7:15-8:30pm
What a blessing it is to have a choir sing the praises of God each Sunday! The choir rehearses each Wednesday night and before the 10:00am service during the months of September through May.

The CCC men’s group meets monthly on the first Saturday of the month for breakfast, fellowship and discussion. The meetings take place in Friendship Hall from 8:00 to 9:00am and breakfast from McDonald’s will be picked up for those who would like it.  Contact the church office if you can attend.

Women’s Coffee Break ~ 2nd Saturday each month, 8:00am
