This weekend we are celebrating 14 years as a church family.
A lot has happened since 1998. When we started the church at the Cleveland
Elementary School with a handful of people we had no idea all God was going to
do. God has blessed us from meeting in an elementary school cafeteria with a
mural of a cow jumping over a moon as a backdrop, adults sitting in elementary
chairs, kids meeting in hallways with no heat or air conditioning to a 47 acre
old tobacco farm with 100,000 square feet and a 2,000 seat worship center. Only
God can do stuff like that.
One thing has not changed in 14 years and that is our
passion to provide Real Hope for Real People in a Real World. Our team recently
shared with me that we have seen close to 5000 total people make a Fresh Start
with God since the beginning of C3. What really gets me fired up and motivated
to keep serving and sacrificing is every time I hear someone share how God has
changed their life, how God healed them, restored their marriage or gave them a
Fresh Start with God.
Join us tonight at 6pm and tomorrow at 9:15 and 11:15am for
a 14 Year Anniversary Celebration service. We are asking everyone to pray about
what God would have them to give in our Imagine Offering as we continue the
vision God has given us at C3. And after every service we have a time of fellowship
and will be serving cake and complimentary Starbucks coffee. If you are out of
town or can’t make it you can join us online tomorrow at 9:15 and 11:15am. See you this weekend!
