This weekend we celebrated Palm Sunday at C3! It was an awesome weekend of celebrating with unplugged worship, communion and our special guest, Pastor Greg Surratt from Seacoast Church in Charleston, South Carolina. Pastor Greg has pastored Seacoast Church for 25 years and is now the president of the ARC (Association of Related Churches). Pastor Greg and his wife Debbie have been great friends of mine and Matt’s for about 10 years and he is also an overseer for C3.
Pastor Greg spoke an awesome message on pleading with the Lord on behalf of someone else. I encourage you to watch or listen to the weekend services here if you missed them. Also,if you were not at C3 this weekend, or if you would like to give your tithe or offering, you can give online by clicking here.

My prayer for Others Should be…
Because you have obeyed me and have not withheld even your son, your only son, I swear by my own name that I will certainly bless you. I will multiply your descendants beyond number, like the stars in the sky and the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will conquer the cities of their enemies. And through your descendants all the nations of the earth will be blessed – all because you have obeyed me.” Genesis 22:16-18 (NLT)
Is any among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well… James 5:14-15 (NIV)
