Announcements and Events

Christ Community Church,

May the Lord bless you to day with awareness to be what you are.  That is all.  Awareness.  Urgently.  Today.

As we are scattered throughout our community, right now, would God bring us unified awareness of what Peter has shared with us in 1 Peter 2.9-10.

This is my prayer.

Lord, make us aware of what you have made/redeemed us to be…

A set apart people, distinct and ‘other-than’ every social, political, economic, racial, civic, corporate, educational, geographic (etc, etc, etc) grouping, yet uniquely among the diverse people/enterprises in your world.

A chosen race (genus) with personhood and dignity and beauty in Jesus, who is thoroughly identifiable in us… and more so than ANY other identifier/reality we know!

A holy nation with a King above all kings… whose righteous law reveals your and our differentness, even as we are repentant people when we fail to keep your law.

A treasured possession… collectively, individually … with a worth revealed in the ransom payment of your own Son that we will discover the value of unto FOREVER.

Lord, make us aware of who you have made/redeemed us to be!

Your royal priests who worship you CONTINUALLY through Jesus our High Priest, with access and grace to stand.

Your holy priests who minister your goodness to your broken creation – REGULARLY – offering the hope of grace and salvation to a world in need of rescue.

Lord, make us URGENTLY aware of our identity and THUS of the internal and external realities that we now face as your beloved in this place of exile (this is where we turn this Sunday, 1 Peter 2.11-12).

I look forward to worshiping with you this Lord’s Day.

Urgently.

Pastor Jim

Monthly Seminars

On the 1st Friday night of every month, join us at the church from 6-8pm for an evening of teaching & discussion, fellowship & dinner, and provided childcare. Our next seminar will be March 6, and we will be having a Biblical Finances Workshop.  As we cover a different topic each month, these discussions will provide another avenue for our maturing in Christ alongside one another.  Please RSVP to AJ if you plan to attend (423.612.0123, babelaj@gmail.com).

CCC Deacon Nomination/Training/Election 

During February and March, the Session of Elders will receive nominations for the Office of Deacon (see Acts 6.1-7, 1 Timothy 3.8-13).
PCA Book of Order 9-2 and 9-3: “. To the office of deacon, which is spiritual in nature, shall be chosen men of spiritual character, honest repute, exemplary lives, brotherly spirit, warm sympathies, and sound judgment. It is the duty of the deacons to minister to those who are in need, to the sick, to the friendless, and to any who may be in distress.
It is their duty to develop the grace of liberality in the members of the church, to devise effective methods of collecting [and distributing] the gifts of the people. They shall have the care of the property of the congregation, and shall keep in proper repair the church edifice.”
Nominations will be closed after Sunday, March 28, followed by a strategic season of training for nominees, after which an election will be held.
If you are a member of Christ Community, will you pray for, talk with, and then nominate any man whom you believe fits the biblical qualification? You may nominate by sending an email to Jim, or by putting a name in the offering plate (with your name referenced). If you are personally wrestling with a sense of call to serve, please speak with an elder or pastor.

Baby Bottle Fundraiser for Agape Womens’ Services

We are participating in Agape Womens’ Center’s baby bottle fundraiser!  Please pick up a baby bottle from the table in the front room, and fill it with whatever the Lord leads you to bless this ministry.
