The Annual Report of Christ Community

Welcome to the Christ Community Church  Annual Report.
The 2019-2020 ministry season was defined by change, but one thing didn’t change at Christ Community Church: God was on the move.

As we were wrapping up our Re-engage group over Zoom, couples shared their faith journeys.  An older gentleman told about surrendering to Christ after the passing of a young girl; he wanted faith like her.  Then, another woman shared:  “That girl was a friend of mine. When she passed, we prayed people would come to Christ because of her death.” She was moved by how the Lord answered that prayer. God’s story is woven through community.
