Is It Your TIme to Be Baptized?
Baptism is for very person who has believed in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Baptism is a vital first step as a believer. Acts 2:41 reads: “Those who accepted his message were baptized.” Our next celebration is in weekend services on December 18 & 19. Attendance in one class is required to participate in baptism. Baptism classes are being held in person on November 20 and December 4, at 6:30 pm, and December 5 at 1:00 pm. One online class is being offered on December 12 at 1:00 pm. Classes are for believers to learn about, and to prepare, for baptism. Registration, information, and class times are on ccclife.org/baptism.

Men's Hour of Prayer: November 13, 8-9am
Come join us again to pray at the St. Charles Campus in the Chapel. One of the wonderful realities of the Gospel is that God’s grip on us is stronger than our grip on him. Our sin is not slippery enough to loosen his grip and Satan’s power is not strong enough to overcome his grip. We will be remembering, together, God’s pursuit of us, praising his faithful grip on us and and praying for him to gift us faith to strengthen our grip on him. Come and be encouraged with us. Bagels and coffee will be served after the event. Details and registration at ccclife.org/mensprayerevent.
