Our lives are suddenly very different. Kids aren't at school, we work from home, and we cannot gather in corporate worship. This does not mean we can't connect. Our current gatherings look very different, but we are delighted to take the opportunities to stay connected. Read below for a listing of when and when our people are connecting (mostly by online zoom meeting). Many of the below meetings will be weekly, regular occurrences, and videos/links will be posted to our website, YouTube, or Facebook page.
WEEKLY LIVE WORSHIP
Join us at 10:30am each Sunday morning for corporate worship via video stream. We'll post video live to our YouTube channel with a link on our Facebook page. We encourage you to gather your family and watch together. PJs are optional.
KIDS Easter Advent + Scripture Challenges
We're keeping our covenant kids engaged and busy with daily Easter Advent devotionals by Renee Whorton. These devotionals will post Monday-Saturday until Easter. Also, Renee will post a weekly Scripture challenge in which she encourages kids to memorize a portion of Scripture. She even has body motions to help those tricky phrases stick! Video your own kiddo showing off his/her memory skills, and post your video in the comments. Renee will draw one name from the comments to win a prize each week! Head over to our Facebook page or YouTube channel to get your kids connected.
During this Corona-distancing, our youth are polishing off their tech skills with (let's face it) loads of online experiences: Google classrooms, zoom lessons, MarcoPolos, TikToks, Instas, Snapchats, etc. Encourage your youths to join the C3 Youth gang every Wednesday night @7pm via zoom meeting. Details will be sent directly to kids and parents to keep these meetings secure. Contact Phil for more info.
WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDY
Even a pandemic won't stop our ladies! After a brief pause over the past few weeks, our usual Wednesday night women's study through Tish Warren's The Liturgy of the Ordinary has resumed. Susan Cunningham is leading these meet-ups via zoom meeting, and all women are invited. This is a great time of learning, connection, and prayer. Go to ccbham.org/women to read more. Meetings begin at 7pm.
COMMUNITY GROUP (virtual) MEETINGS
Many of our CCC community groups have already started zoom meetings. We aim for this regular meeting/connection to continue. Contact your community group leader for days/times of your zoom/Facetime/online meeting!
POSTPONEMENTS & CANCELLATIONS
Out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to postpone the 10th Anniversary celebration originally scheduled for April 26. We will reschedule it to the summer with a date TBA. The men's even planned for April 4 has been cancelled. We hope to still be able to do our summer 2020 VBS, but the dates may need to be changed; that info is coming soon!
