Dear Christ Church,
We have a number of great events planned for the near future and into the new year. Please take a moment to look through these upcoming dates and mark your calendar. We hope you can join us for these times of learning, edification, and fellowship!
CCP Christmas Outreach
Christmas is a wonderful season to share Christ's message in a meaningful way. This year, in an effort to be intentional with our outreach, we are encouraging members of Christ Church Presbyterian to host a Christmas Gathering or drop-in at their home. It would be a get-together of friends and neighbors. The gathering can feature things like holiday food, spontaneous sharing of Christmas traditions, and a brief devotion on the meaning of Christmas. We would encourage you to also invite them to our Christmas Eve service. Pastors Jon and Ross are currently working on a special booklet to be handed out. If you are interested in hosting a gathering and receiving booklets, please contact Austin Griffin.
Praying for One Another at Christ Church
CCP has now started an official avenue through which you can share your prayer requests with the leadership and congregation. When we remember one another in prayer we grow closer as a church family. For any requests you may want to stay confidential, please let us know. All non-confidential requests will be published in a small prayer bulletin that will be available at our regular Sunday morning prayer meeting or on the information table. Please send all prayer requests to Austin Griffin at firstname.lastname@example.org
