Perhaps you've seen a blacksmith working on his anvil. The key to shaping a piece of iron into a usable shape is to first heat it in the fire. While it is hot, the hammer can beat it into whatever shape the blacksmith desires. Once it has cooled, there's little chance of changing it's shape without re-heating it.
Opportunities come and go in our lives and many of them require us to respond in the moment. If we aren't prepared or even paying attention, we'll miss out on our chance. The most successful business person, athlete, or Jesus-follower needs to be ready for when key moments arrive.
In Ephesians 5:15-20, Paul spells out God's strategy for success and it revolves around being in tune with the Holy Spirit who lives within us and being ready to make the most of the opportunities He brings our way to BLESS others. I hope you'll be able to join us as we look at this passage this coming Sunday, Oct. 29th.
Once again CCC will be hosting Trunk or Treat on Halloween night in our front parking lot from 5-6:30. The idea is to create a "mini neighborhood" in the form of decorated vehicle trunks from which kids can collect candy. It's a fun event that is always well attended by our community - especially since we're strategically located right next to a prime Trick or Treating neighborhood!
We need your help to make this a success. Here are some different ways you can participate:
And following Trunk or Treat, head down to Cascade Bible Church for their Carnival!
Have you wondered what exactly a "Covenant Church" is? Have you wanted to learn about how CCC came into existence? Do you wonder what church membership means?
Well, we're offering another chance to learn the answers to these and other questions through our "Exploring Church Membership" class. On Sunday afternoon, November 12th, from noon to 3:00 pm, Pastor Jeff and Tami will host this class in their home. We'll share lunch, hear stories, watch some short videos, and give you the lowdown. There's no requirement to join the church after attending, but this is the pathway to formally affiliating with CCC as a church member.
Contact Pastor Jeff to let him know of your interest or for further info.
We've started up a high school youth group here at CCC. We're not only welcoming high school students, but also any adults who would like to be a part of the fun and learning. You can help in a number of different ways such as:
