Currently seeking out people who can sing Soprano, Alto, Tenor, or Bass in a choir that will provide special music during the Christmas season, provided we have enough interest. Please respond as soon as possible to Kyle Witmer in person or by email at witmer@internationalministries.org.

NEW TO CMCC?

If you are new to CMCC, please visit our Newcomers’ Table outside the left door of the sanctuary to receive a Newcomers’ Pack. This pack includes information on CMCC as well as a booklet called “Helpful Hints for Getting Settled in Chiang Mai.”

ARE YOU A CMCC MEMBER YET?

Have you been attending CMCC regularly? If so, you are encouraged to apply for membership at CMCC. There are 2 types of membership.

1. FORMAL MEMBERSHIP is for those who do not have a home church membership elsewhere and desire to make Chiang Mai Community Church their home church.

2. AFFILIATE MEMBERSHIP is for those who have a church membership elsewhere but desire formal recognition of membership in Chiang Mai Community Church for the period of local residence.

Please fill out a membership form which is available at the Newcomers’ Table and return it to Pastor Simon or Pastor Mike.

CMCC SMALL GROUPS

As many of us are in transition, or are far away from our family and friends, isn’t community what we all need here? The small groups provide a wonderful place to connect to God and to each other. We have a desk next to the welcome table where you can get more information about our small groups. They come at various times, locations, activities, sizes, and shapes so there should always be one that fits you like a glove. Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information about the groups: smallgroups@cmcchurch.org.

SOCIAL CONCERNS MINISTRY

Social Concerns Committee of the CMCC has the privilege of deciding how church monies will be distributed to those in our community with particular needs. Each month we review the needs that have been submitted and pray together about how to distribute the funds. The committee provides financial assistance for hospital expenses, difficult or emergency circumstances, scholarships for education, and love gifts to those in ministry.

If you know of anyone who needs support for an unexpected or problematic situation, please contact the Social Concerns committee at helps@cmcchurch.org or see Jane Arnott, Social Concerns Chair.

FREE EVANGELISM LITERATURE

In order to help you be more fully equipped for this special assignment from the Lord, the Outreach Committee has a table outside the front of the church on Sundays, with free resources available for you to distribute.  Please come by and take what seems suitable for those in your sphere of God’s love. It’s all FREE!

PRAYER TIME BEFORE CHURCH SERVICE ON SUNDAYS

You are encouraged to come and pray each Sunday from 3.30-4.00 p.m. in the small chapel to the left of the main sanctuary (behind the Newcomers’ Table).
