What are the Ministries of the CCC?

Sunday Services: Our Sunday morning worship services begin at 9:00 A.M. We worship through song, prayer, and in the hearing of the word of God. Immediately following the morning worship service there is a time of fellowship with refreshments. The Sunday school hour begins at 10:45 A.M. We have classes for children and two large group classes which include Jr./Sr. high students, college students, and adults.

Life Groups: Life groups provide a time of fellowship, discipleship, and Biblical instruction. We believe these group activities are essential to the growth of the individual. Our life groups are offered at different times, varying locations, and examine various topics. All CC attendees are encouraged to “get connected” with a life group.

Bible studies: As the Bible is the written word of God, it is vital that we read and study His word regularly. Christ Covenant provides instructor facilitated Bible study for both men and women.

Family Shepherding: A family shepherding classes are held periodically to help train and encourage men to be Godly shepherds in their homes.

Youth activities: In our current age, there is probably no more critical group for instruction, discipleship, and encouragement than our youth. Christ Covenant affirms the Biblical role of parents and supports this parental mandate by providing a Jr./Sr. High youth group on Wednesday evenings throughout the year.

College students: Christ Covenant welcomes college students from our local universities and colleges. We believe it is critical for these students to be connected with a church. Christ Covenant has been blessed by the attendance and participation of many college students. College students are encouraged to be active in our church; many participate in the music of the church and assist in the instruction of our youth. We have a special life group designed to meet the specific needs of the college age and young adults.

Ladies retreat: Each year many ladies of the church are able to escape their daily cares and the daily stresses of life with a weekend get away. Much fun and fellowship are shared by all as the ladies participate in a weekend designed specially for them. Each retreat offers several sessions by a guest speaker.

Other opportunities: Throughout the year there are many other opportunities to minister to the members of the church and to our community. The church has a quarterly potluck lunch. Many members enjoy quilting/crafting and periodically offer retreats at the church or other locations. The annual Father-Daughter Dinner is a special time for fathers and daughters. Every three years the church hosts a Seder Dinner. VBS is held in the summer months. An annual canoe trip is scheduled each fall. Check our calendar for any of these events that may be of interest to you.

Deacon Fund: Scripture teaches that our church has a duty to minister to those in need, to the sick, to the friendless, and to any who may be in distress. As examples, consider that 1 Timothy 5:3-16 commands the church to provide for its widows when their families are not able to care for them; Luke 10:25-37 directs us to minister to the needs of anyone in distress; and Galatians 6:10 calls us to provide for unmet needs; especially those within the church.

God has established the office of Deacon to, among other responsibilities, manage our churches ministry of compassion under the oversight of the Session. We maintain a Deacons fund that allows the Deacons’ to effectively execute our collective responsibility. This fund is sustained by the giving of the congregation and is used to meet primarily short-term financial needs that arise within the congregation, but also within the larger community of faith and occasionally to those outside of the faith.

Mission to the World is the missions-sending agency of the PCA, MTW is helping to fulfill the Great Commission by advancing Reformed and covenantal church-planting movements through word and deed ministries in strategic areas worldwide. It is the goal of MTW to develop trained and empowered national leadership and churches that are self-propagating, self-supporting, and self-governing, resulting in movements of the gospel that impact entire cultures.

Mission to North America serves the churches and presbyteries of the PCA in fulfilling their calling to plant, grow, and multiply churches in all kinds of communities throughout the United States and Canada. In addition to providing direct services to facilitate all aspects of church planting, MNA coordinates resources for church revitalization, mercy ministries and chaplain ministries.
