RESTORE Mission Trip

Have you ever wanted to go on a mission trip and didn’t think you had the time?

CCCH is hosting a three-day mission trip Sept. 21 or 22  thru Sept. 24 to Quincy, Massachusetts to help our sister church, Restore Christian Church. This is the church CCCH has been supporting through the RIDICULOUS campaign. This trip will help them expand their ministry in the community. Quincy is located just 30 minutes south of downtown Boston in an area where only 1% of the population is involved in any kind of spiritual activity. For more details come to the informational meeting on Sunday, August 13 at 10:15 a.m. in the Conference Room. Questions? contact J.K. Stevens.

Discover Bethany

Join us on September 12, 2017 from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. in the Chapel to learn how you can help vulnerable children through adoption or temporary care at our Discover Bethany meeting. We will offer basic information about our services for Domestic, International and Foster Care Adoption as well as information about becoming a safe haven for a child/children whose parents are experiencing a crisis, through Safe Families for Children. The purpose of this meeting is to give you an overview of Bethany Christian Services and how adoption and caring for children fits into the continuum of services offered through our Chicago office. This is a casual setting and there will be time to ask questions either with the group or individually following the meeting. Child care is not provided.
