WEDNESDAY WOMEN IN THE WORD

Wednesday Women in the Word will start a new study beginning March 28th and going through May 9th. It starts at 9:45. Coffee and fellowship time 9:15 – 9:45.

Using video and discussion, we will be learning from John Ortberg’s book “Soul Keeping.” In these sessions we will consider the health of our souls. Ortberg says, “It is not just a matter of being saved or unsaved. The soul is the hinge on which the rest of your life hangs. It is the difference between deep satisfied spirituality and a restless, dispassionate faith.”

We would love to have you join us for this 6-week study. Write to wednesdaywomen@cmcchurch.org for more info.

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.

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.

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).
