At CCC we are called to share God’s love for us through compassionate service to others. By giving to others, we are able to share God’s love.

Everyone who is willing is to bring to the Lord an offering. – Exodus 35:5

 

There are many ways to serve compassionately at CCC:

Outreach Committee

The purpose of the Outreach Committee is to recognize and serve human needs in the community and the world. The committee shall enlist support from the congregation for the church universal at various denominational and ecumenical levels.

Congregational Care Committee

We can minister to the physical needs of our church body by providing meals, rides, errands and visits. This is a practical way to put your faith into action while helping members and attendees at times of funerals, births, adoptions and difficult situations (i.e. extended illness, surgery, etc.). Contact the church office to help, as God leads.

Soup Kitchen

(Temporarily on hold during pandemic)

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!

Deacons

CCC Members volunteer each Sunday to serve communion to others at the church. There are other duties involved, such as collecting tithes and offerings and welcoming the congregation as bulletins are handed out.

Liturgists

Each Sunday, we are blessed by CCC members and friends who lead us in responsive readings, prayers and scripture.
