Minister Search Committee 2017

2017 Search Committee Update:

Kingdom, Community, and History Assessments are currently being put together and we can’t wait to share with you what we’ve learned about our community, other churches, and our own history once all the assessments are complete. All of these areas will help the search committee show our candidates who we are, where, we live, and what our community looks like.
 
Prayer Update – come and check out our new prayer room. It will be a place to gather our thoughts, write notes, and speak with God. Find out more this Sunday during Back to Church Sunday Potluck and Prayer focus in the Quad.

Prayer requests for our next Minister:
  1. Pray to prepare his heart for relationships with each of us, our church, and our community.
  2. Pray that God will increase his passion for preaching, teaching, and shepherding.
  3. Prayer for his family and friends during the upcoming calling he will have.
Prayer Requests for the Search Committee
  1. Pray for patience – we need to wait for God’s timing, not ours.
  2. Prayer for wisdom to choose the right person – we need God’s choice, not ours.
  3. Pray for guidance – we need to see the right path for CCC.
