Feeling like it's time to get out of the house? The open road is calling to you . . . or is it just your back deck? The lazy days of summer are a wonderful time to relax, refresh, and restore. Some of the staff here at CCC recently shared their current 'must reads' with me, so I decided to share them with you. It makes a great summer reading list to refresh spiritually as well as physically.

Special Summer Growth Track:

Developing Your Testimony

Teacher: Anna Marie Dandy
June 27 and July 11 at 10:30am in Auditorium 151
Developing Your Testimony - Sponsored by Empowered Women’s Ministry but open to everyone. As discussed at the Warrior Princess brunch, one way we do spiritual warfare is that we overcome the enemy by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony (Rev. 12:11). Most people are more willing to listen to a personal story compared to listening to a sermon you may pass on, hearing your political opinion, or reading a tract. Learn how, in this 2 week Growth Track, to effectively develop, communicate, and share your own personal testimonies in order to encourage others in their faith or to plant seeds of salvation in those who do not yet know the Lord.

Fall Growth Tracks Schedule:


During Second Service, beginning at 10:30 a.m. in the auditorium
(Children's Ministry is open during second service.)


7:00 p.m. in the Ministry Center
