CMCC CHRISTMAS CHOIR

If you’d be interested in joining other CMCC music-lovers as part of a Christmas choir, we’d love to have you! 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.

OUTREACH COMMITTEE NEWS

It’s Christmas time again!  Well…. not quite yet; but the Outreach Committee needs to make plans for the annual Carols by Candlelight Pageant to be held on the evening of Friday December 14th, 2018.

You now have a chance to let us know how you might be involved in a musical and/or acting role for that program. Please fill out the green form that will be available from the ushers on Sunday. If you are away right now, but will be here in December and you want to know more, please contact us at outreach@cmcchurch.org.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

OLD GLASSES, NEW EYES

Being able to see clearly can completely change the life of someone with difficulty seeing. Our church will be participating in an eyeglass collection drive on September 9, 16, and 23. Please consider bringing your old eyeglasses to donate. Many types of glasses are needed for both children and adults: corrective lenses for near-sightedness and far-sightedness as well as bifocals, reading glasses, and sunglasses.

The glasses you donate will be sorted, checked, and distributed throughout Thailand by medical volunteers for Operation Blessing as part of the medical mission of the Christian Broadcasting Network’s “WorldReach” program. Each pair of glasses will be tagged with a Bible verse and accompanied by a Christian tract explaining the way of salvation and new life through faith in Jesus Christ.

Bring your old eyeglasses to church next week as an act of love to give someone new eyes, and possibly a new life. Donation boxes will be placed at the church doors.

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).
