June 30th


I'm sorry for such a gap in updates. I made some changes to my weekly schedule a little over a month ago that have overall been very positive, but the process has left me needing to resolve a few areas- one of which is a regular time for posting on this blog. Thank you for hanging in there with us!

Several great things have happened in the last month, so I'd like to take this opportunity to catch you up:
  • Organization of our refreshment ministry has recently been assumed by Teeya Huf. This is a bigger step for us than it might seem on the surface, because the refreshment ministry was the last of our initial launch ministries still being cared for by interim leadership.
  • Kids Crossing continues to be the surprise story of C3. To respond to the growing challenges of having 1/3 or higher of our attendance made up of kids each week, the leadership has brought Kerri Graham on part time as the director of our Children's ministry. She brings over a decade of teaching experience and will develop curriculum, train volunteers, and just love on the kids! We were excited to be able to send nine of our kiddos along with Kerri and her husband Joe to camp a few weeks ago, and they all had a blast!
  • Our website is VERY close to being complete, pending some text I am currently working on and some animation refinements that Dorothea is finishing. I will let you know as soon as the site is up and running!
This week, please join us in praying for opportunities to build real relationships with the folks that are coming to visit us each week, and for the chance to help them connect to our incredible God! Also, please pray with us for some resolution to the issue of climate control in the school we are renting. The school district is working diligently to get the right zones cooled off for us on Sunday's, but with a big building and changing weather, this has become an ongoing challenge.

Thank you so much for partnering with C3 in prayer! We are grateful for you!

In Him We Live,
