We are in a bit of transition here at CCJ. As you may know, former CCJ Associate Minister Ryan Heathco was on the preaching team at CCJ and was called to be the Lead Minister at another church.
With that transition, CCJ Youth Minister Drew Thurman has jumped on the preaching team. His overall role and title is changing. Drew’s title is now Family Life & Teaching Minister. In that role, Drew will continue to oversee all of family ministries (birth through high school) as well as be involved in leading and preaching in the Well team ministries. Additionally, Drew will be more involved with the preaching and vision-casting alongside CCJ Senior Minister Darrel Land.
With that change, we are excited to announce we are adding Corey Andry to the youth staff to be our Student Minister. That means, while Drew will still be heavily involved with the teens, Corey will partner with Drew and lead the day-to-day Well Teen Ministry here at CCJ. Corey has an incredible heart and gifts for leading students. Corey and his wife, Lindsey, come by way of Lincoln, Ill., and will be joining us in June.
Every Sunday morning, CCJ takes to the airwaves from 10 a.m. to Noon (Eastern time). The first hour (10 to 11 a.m.) is a replay of the previous week’s service (music and sermon) and the second hour (11 a.m. to Noon) is a music program featuring music made by Christians and Scripturally-influenced music (whether the artist knows it or not). See the first two playlists to get an idea of what we’re playing.
Tune in if you’re not at the 10 or 11:15 a.m. service. However, it’s another way to let your friends and family hear what CCJ is all about (Hint: It’s Jesus) if they’re skittish about attending worship services with you.
What does it mean to follow Jesus? In this series, we’ll learn following Christ means living in a missional way, living in a relational way, and living in an incarnational way. What do all of these terms mean? Join us for this four-week sermon series and learn all about it. After the series, we’ll have Baptism Sunday on May 25.
We are very excited about Jesus and his resurrection each week at CCJ. However, Easter Sunday is a day each year when Christians all around the world celebrate this most important event in human history.
Starting Point for Students
Starting Point for Students (Mile Marker 3) is a class all about salvation, accepting Christ, and baptism. Parents join their child when they are ready, and are walked through the Gospel message and how to have a conversation about getting baptized. Register here >>
This is an opportunity for parents of newborn children to make the commitment to raise their child in the ways of the Lord. Mile Marker 1 connects new parents with the magnificent responsibility and opportunity of leading their children spiritually. Register here >>
In Mile Marker 7, we join parents to honor and celebrate students who have made it this far. Each student will have a chance to reflect on their journey, as well as to receive a prayer of blessing from their family. Register here >>
