Prayers: Week of March 8, 2020
Prayer and praise will be our power house: ‘“Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty.” We urge all believers to raise up the church in prayers, expecting God to move and act. The church staff will be praying over these requests every Wednesday from 11:45 am – 12 noon. Please join them wherever you are to uphold CCC and her people in prayer. Additional requests may be submitted to the pastors.

To Think About: In Proverbs, God’s guide to living, we are reminded that each age has its strengths which are to be respected. Our church needs both the energy of the young and the wisdom of the old to prosper. The glory of young men is their strength,gray hair the splendor of the old. Prov 20:29 NIV
