Announcements and Events

Christ Community family,

I hope and pray that you are having a great week, thus far.  Thank you to Davis for preaching and for the host of others who taught children, ministered in the mercy, led worship, shared musical gifts, prepared food for lunch, set up tables… I thank God for the communal nature of Christ Community.

As we are a COMMUNITY – may I remind/encourage you to step out in faith and attend a community group!  These groups are with a goal that we might present one another as mature in Christ – through fellowship, study of God’s Word, and prayer.  May you be blessed as you engage!  If you have questions, please reach out to AJ Babel serving as our Minister of Discipleship (babelaj@gmail.com).

This Lord’s Day we will dig down into the first chapter of John’s Gospel – and consider how from ETERNITY, God tangibly came into time and space – FULLY – through Jesus Christ the Word in the flesh.   There is an Absolute Starting point as we read the Gospel of John, and that starting point that we must wrestle with by faith is… not a starting point.  It is an eternal reality.  I am expecting that as we study John’s prologue that we will be PROVOKED as image bearers of God… WILLINGLY setting aside our preoccupation with the present and our anxieties, tasks, successes, wants, needs… We WANT to consider all that the Gospel reveals of Jesus, for “God has set eternity in our hearts” (Ecclesiastes 3.11).  We are drawn to a depth and timelessness that we can’t fully know… even as we can fully know Jesus who has FULLY revealed and infleshed God’s eternal glory!

PERSONAL NOTE: I will be concluding my leadership of Home Works of America (after 5 years) this Thursday.  Thus, I am feeling set free and perhaps a bit exposed as I turn in my laptop and cell phone.  So, please note that effective this Thursday, my 803-609-1731 will no longer be my number but given to another employee.   By next Monday I will have a new cell number (423, yay!) as well as laptop – and I am thankful to go a weekend with no electronics attached to my body!    I hope to see you Sunday for our Exodus conversation at 9:30 (big broad strokes covering ch.20-24).

Help Set up a church library

CCC has been blessed to be gifted a significant portion of the library of Pastor Steve Perkins, which
we hope will be used by God to inform/grow the worldview and knowledge of our body. We want
to honor Steve and Cindy by setting up a beautiful and organized “library” in the Upper Room. If
you are interested in joining others in a short term project to assemble IKEA shelves and categorize
hundreds of books, please email Joseph Barnet at joey.barnet@gmail.com.
