Wednesday Night Alive

Hello CCA The weather can’t decide what it wants to do. I’m voting sunshine. Remember the 2018 Faith Outreach Plan I laid out for us this year, back in January? It asked you questions, like how do I want to progress in my faith and witness this year? We don’t want to be a 10 year old Christian with only one year worth of Spiritual Development. Wednesday nights are designed to offer 5 things that are basic Christianity: Fellowship, meals…

Reminder About Tonight

Hello church! Reminder about tonight from 6-9 in the Fellowship Hall. Heath Franklin did a good job of explaining the unique factors among people; labeled sheep, wolves and sheepdogs. Wolves and sheepdogs are both aggressive and they both bite. But one devours and one protects. We will gain some training in 3 areas: Security in places of worship. This will likely bleed over into home awareness. Emergency management in the local church facility. This also will likely be informational to…

Former First Lady, Barbara Bush

Good day CCA 😊 During our recent Family Dedication Day, I asked us to be the generation that turns our children’s generation back to faith. Then our children won’t have to be won to Christ through the efforts of someone else. I just spoke with “Faith Comes by Hearing” and they said this Millennial Generation knows the least about God. Let’s reverse the trend on that, one family at a time, starting with yours. Many at CCA are doing a…

Sunday Potluck & Easter Review

Hello CCA, Over 14 hours of daylight now! 2 weeks ago we hit an equal 12 hours. Looks like we may have spring again this year😊. Of course we will! There are things you can count on because in reality, we have a consistent and orderly God. But one day, there will be a great end. Easter reminds us of that. There will come a New Day. It will be quite the Day to remember. Back to Easter for a…

An Opportunity to Grow in the Grace of Christ

Hello CCA! Easter was a great day. You came ready to worship and filled with joy. It was obvious. I will say more about Easter tomorrow. Here’s an opportunity to grow in the grace of Christ: Tomorrow night, I encourage you to schedule these sessions into your week. We have 2 new seminars that begin tomorrow night that will develop your faith and service. They are scheduled between 7-8. You can come for dinner as well, at 6. So you…

Tomorrow Morning is our Day of Celebration!

Hello CCA, Tomorrow morning is our Day of Celebration! We celebrate the best news that the world has ever heard. I and others, have been praying that tomorrow will, in a way you need, bring you closer to the awesome work that God accomplished in Christ by raising Him from death. We have been praying that those who come to worship who are still on the curious side will hear precisely what they need to hear for The Resurrection to…

Make Easter as Big a Holiday as Christmas

Hello CCA, I have been letting people know that CCA is starting a process of making Easter as big a holiday as Christmas. And it will be a process. Maybe we should invent an Easter tree to decorate? If you have thought of some ideas to display the celebration of the Christian’s best day of the year, send back a brief email or text. We posted a Happy Easter plaque on our garage door frame, but it feels anemic. There…

Evangelism in the Psalms

Hello CCA, Amazing to me is Evangelism in the Psalms. King David was trying to wrest his land from warring nations. Israel was hated by the Nations around them, yet God was so good and powerful, that david says, “Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name, make known among the nations what he has done.” May God effect such realization and emotion among us that we cannot but tell others of his great work in Easter. May his house…

Countdown to Resurrection Day Continues

Hello CCA 😊 Count down continues for Resurrection Day! Today I asked the lady at the front desk of a Rehab facility that Dad was in, “What do you have planned for Easter?” I was saddened by her response, “Nothing really; I am going to brunch at Settler’s Bay with some friends of the my family, but that’s all.” Here are some thoughts I wrote down in my ever-present memory back, the notepad on my iphone: If you believe the…

We Edge Ever Closer to Easter

Hello CCA, We edge ever closer to Resurrection Day, Easter. It is this Sunday. Thinking about the Resurrection before its celebration arrives helps our anticipation level to rise. This morning as I read through Psalm 146 I noticed this truth, the Resurrection directs our living practices. It says, blessed is a person whose God is The Lord. Then it explains our God; he made the heavens and the earth. He is faithful to us always. Then it describes his attention…

Three Grand Opportunities

Hello CCA! Around us are 3 grand opportunities: Our current sunny (but chilly) weather sure brings visions of spring and summer. Our March Conference begins tomorrow evening at 7. It will be good to fellowship with you and visit with the President of Boise Bible College. He and his wife are close associates of CCA. I hope you will participate in the events together tomorrow and Saturday. I hope you see the value and have scheduled around this opportunity we…

Resurrection Day is Coming Up

Hello CCA! Resurrection Day is coming up. Mandy and I are crazy busy, researching and selecting ways to help you find this day of celebration and the days leading up to it, the best you’ve ever had. Sadly, she and I may be viewing this season as loads of work rather than loads of joy and ‘mystery’ over what we have in Jesus. We will work on our perspective 😊. Mandy has sent out 2 emails I hope you are…
