Jan. 7th

What a cool and crazy holiday season!

C3 had our first worship gathering "out of the house" on Christmas Eve. Although many of our core group were travelling etc., we still had a great turnout! The facility we rented was pretty ideal for our adults, but since it has only one room, we are still looking for a space that will give our children's ministry the space they need, too.  Please continue with us to pray that God will help us find the right place. We don't want to "lock in" to a long lease, or make a purchase too quickly, so we will be perfectly content to rent on a weekly basis right now. 

While I'm excited about Christmas Eve, our biggest news comes in the area of "Serve the world." 

In early December, I met a couple of great guys who were living under one of the overpasses at an I-10 intersection. From this meeting, some of our core group have begun what we are (for the time being) calling "the overpass ministry." 

I know, creative. 

Anyway,  the name isn't the important part. What is important, are the ways we are getting to know some great folks who don't have a place to live, or sometimes anything to eat. This is not "charity" work, or a handout. This is the Kingdom of God. When we serve someone that might be regarded by some as "the least of these," we are serving Christ Himself. Please join us in praying that our great God will lead us where He wants us to go with this opportunity.

Thanks so much for praying!

In Him We Live,

Jeff

After all this, there is only one thing to say: Have reverence for God, and obey his commands, because this is all that we were created for. ECCLESIASTES 12:13 TEV
