Worship Center A: Construction Update

wca-insideConstruction is in full swing on Worship Center A. Framing and other foundational construction is happening as this is being typed — with progress visible every day. The construction area is now hard-hat-only and, as such, we’re not letting anyone into the area without a hard hat on.

 

We are pleased to announce a projected opening date for this Fall. A specific date will be announced as we draw much closer to actual completion.

 

With Worship Center A comes lots of excitement for CCJ as well as a whole host of other emotions. The most important thing we can do right now is pray.

What can you pray for?

– The workers. Pray they will see God’s mercy be real in their lives. Pray for their safety in this project.
– The use. Pray we effectively utilize this great tool God has entrusted us with. This isn’t about us, it’s about His Kingdom growing.
– The people who may show up simply because we have a new building and are curious about it. God can use simple curiosity to draw someone to Himself.
– Giving. Buildings aren’t free or cheap. Our commitments to the 24,000 Reasons building campaign have been going well. However, the quicker we pay this off and the quicker we’re out of debt, the more work we can do in spreading the Gospel even further than 1450 Energy Drive.

OUT THERE: A New CCJ Connection Group

On Sunday, March 9 and 16 at 10 a.m., Dr. Greg Gordon, a CCJ member, will lead a two-week Connection Group called “Out There” in Room 202, upstairs at CCJ.

outthereWhen we gather as a church body, we are in a formation of sorts. However, when we leave the walls of our church building, “out there,” we are in a ground war, often on our own. No matter where we work or where we play, we all have different gifts that need to be used for advancing God’s Kingdom. Many of us don’t know how, or are afraid we will make mistakes out there all alone.

In “Out There,” we will learn how to use the gifts God gave us for His glory out in the real world.

When? Sunday, March 9 and 16 at 10 a.m.
Where? Room 202, upstairs at CCJ.

“Epic: The Storyline Of God” Starts Sunday

Starting Sunday: New Sermon Series, Epic: The Storyline Of God

Every story in the Bible tells the story of Jesus. In this series, we will see how The Bible is not about us, but about God’s great redemption plan for mankind all through the Old Testament and through the New Testament.

As an added bonus, on Sunday, we will have a guest speaker to kick off the series. Troy (OH.) Christian Church Preaching Minister (and former CCJ Associate Minister) Mark Messmore will be preaching.

On Sunday, we’ll also give the series an epic kick-off with a little popcorn in the lobby. You’ll want to be on time this Sunday so as not to miss a moment of this special day.

Epic will last from February 23 to Easter Sunday, April 20. You won’t want to miss any of this sermon series.
