Take Note!           

 

Tribute and Appreciation for Rev. Andrew and Mrs. Lydia Shen  In recognition of Rev. and Mrs. Shen’s service to Chinese Community Church where Rev. Shen served as Visiting Pastor for four years, 2000-2003, the Official Board has established the Rev. Andrew and Mrs. Lydia Shen Fund to use for Church Ministries.  Their ministry at CCC began soon after the Mandarin Ministry was established and continued several years after Rev. Shen’s official retirement, when he served as a guest speaker and advisor.  He filled a pastoral need in both the Mandarin and Cantonese congregations.  Anyone who would like to honor the Shens may make a donation to the Chinese Community Church and designate it for the Shen Fund.

 

Rev. and Mrs. Shen will be relocating to the west coast soon.  The church would like to compile a memory book for them as a reminder of their time with us.  If you have photos, cards, notes, or artifacts you would like to include, please contact David Wong as soon as possible, dlwong83@verizon.net.

 

Special English Adult Sunday School Classes  In conjunction with their study on the Israelites entering the Promised Land, the class will hear testimonies from church and class members sharing how they came to the “Promise Land” of CCC.   All are invited to attend the continuation of the special class, March 21 and 28.  Class is on google meet from 9 am – 10:30 am.  Request the link below or check your email for the link if you are on the church email list.
