A Message from the Music Minister

Hello Everyone, First off, I wanted to say how much I miss all of you! After nearly five years of working as the music director at CCC, getting to say hello and see you all Sunday morning has become the highlight of my week! Sunday mornings are not the same without all of the warm smiles and greetings.

There are so many things to miss about worshiping in person, but at the same time there are many things that I’ve really grown to appreciate since we’ve adapted our time together these past couple months. One of these ways is how we’ve all come together to find new ways to worship and share fellowship together. Our church community has felt so vibrant and active, with more people taking part in a variety of activities! With multiple Zoom calls and gatherings throughout the week it has been wonderful getting to see and hear everyone more often than only on Sunday mornings. The need to adapt has brought us together, and I hope to see people remain so active in the life of the church as part of our new normal.

I’d also like to commend everyone on how willing they’ve been to try new ways of worship. I’ve seen other churches with members that have not been as understanding during this uncertain time and have rushed to resume services without proper planning and thoughtfulness towards keeping everyone safe. It is a testament to the strength and love of our congregation that we have not done this, and it makes me very proud!

I hope you are all doing well and continuing to stay safe at home, and if you haven’t had a chance to join any of the Zoom prayer gatherings, book studies, game nights, or morning coffee chats please think about giving them a try. It’s a great way to stay connected, and if you’ve never used any of these digital tools please don’t hesitate to reach out. I’d love to walk through the process with you so you can still enjoy fellowship while we are together but separate.

Much love to you all,

Mark
