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!

Easter Expression #11

Why I am Glad I Found Out about the Resurrection … Spring brings many of my favorite things, green trees, flowers blooming, warmer days and Easter. I love Easter because it reminds me of hope, restoration and the birth of new life. Easter is when we remember, as children of God, the new life we have been given through the resurrection I accepted Christ as my savoir as a child. I feel that the decision you make as a child…

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…

Easter Expression #10

Why I am Glad I Found Out about the Resurrection … For a stretch of weeks, the families in our congregation have been steadily hit with death – it seems more than usual. Death, and the grieving that follows, are two of the most heart wrenching events we have to endure. Such an overwhelming sadness can break the heart, and the countenance, of the most stoic person, at the loss of a special person in their life. Death itself generates…
