Let's Hangout on Zoom!

Kids, Parents, and All Children's Ministry Volunteers!

Join us tomorrow afternoon, Friday Mar 27 @ 3pm, in a zoom meeting for a chance to catch-up with one another and see how the families and volunteers in the other congregations are doing!  (We would like the volunteers to join the meeting a bit earlier at 2:45pm if possible.)

Pastor Jason and Amy will be hosting a fun, light-hearted hangout with games, story-time, and prayer.  We will also be talking about the upcoming plans for an online "service" for the kids, and the church resources available for families to use at home; and update you about future Children's Ministry events.

CCAC COVID-19 Prevention and Response Plan

A message from our church leadership...

Dear Brothers & Sisters,

As you know, we are in unprecedented times as we face the reality of the COVID-19n pandemic. A COVID-19 Special Committee was formed, consisting of medical professionals and church leadership, to assess and make a recommendation to the Board of Elders (BOE) on how to respond to the situation. After much prayer, discussion, and discernment, the CCAC Board of Elders has made the decision to cancel all worship services, as well as regularly scheduled group gatherings (fellowships, life groups, Children’s Ministries, prayer meetings, programs/activities) until March 31. The Special Committee will continue to meet throughout this time to monitor and evaluate the situation, and make further recommendations to the BOE.

The Special Committee considered many factors in coming to their recommendation.
The situation is changing so quickly from day to day. A decision needs to be made that isn’t based solely on the current reality,…

Living a Fruiful Life - Don' Be Lazy

Last Sunday Discovery Point:  Living A Fruitful Life - Don't Be Lazy
Today, the children gained a better understanding of being zealous for the Lord. They discovered that goofing off and being lazy may seem fun at the moment, but they can miss out on so much. Instead, children should be eager to help mom and dad, clean their room, or study for school. The blessings from working hard for the Lord can last a lifetime. (Scripture used: 2 Thessalonians 3:6-15) 
Memory Verse: “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.” Colossians 3:23 NIV

Practice this verse several times with your child during the week. This will not only help him or her remember the verse, but it will also help to reinforce what he or she learned during class.

Suggested Parent/Child Activity:
Both the ant and the squirrel, as well as many other animals show that they are not lazy by storing up food for the winter. What if they didn't do this? Brainstorm with your…

Kidz Club - March Lesson

Lesson materials are from [The Gospel Project for Kids - Worship Hour]

Dear Parents:
During the time of Queen Esther—more than 450 years before Jesus was born—the Jewish people were scattered around the Persian Empire. The Book of Esther tells the unlikely story of a young Jewish woman who, as the queen of the Persian Empire, saved her people.

After Esther was chosen as the queen of Persia, she received news that an evil man named Haman had a plan to kill all of the Jews. The Book of Esther is the only book in the Bible that never mentions God by name, but God clearly worked through Esther and her cousin Mordecai to save the Jewish people. Mordecai even suggested to Esther that God’s hand was in the situation: “Who knows, perhaps you have come to your royal position for such a time as this” (Esth. 4:14)

If Haman was successful in killing all the Jews, his evil plan would put God’s promises in jeopardy. God had promised to bless the world through Abraham’s family and to send a King from…

Living A Fruitful Life - Perseverance

Last Sunday Discovery Point:  Living A Fruitful Life - Perseverance
Today, the children gained an understanding that some things in life take time and extra effort to achieve, but Jesus gives us all the help we need. He even gives us special people to care for us and help us along the way.

Scripture used: Luke 13:6-9
Memory Verse: "Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” James 1:4NIV

Practice this verse several times with your child during the week. This will not only help them remember the verse, but it will also help to reinforce what he or she learned during class.

Suggested Parent/Child Activity:
Help your child understand the difference between perseverance and patience, by letting them answer the following questions with either "Patience" or "Perseverance." Also discuss why each answer is correct. In many situations both words apply. You may also want to come up with some questions of your own. 1. What …
