Your Decision to Give
Apr 15, 2018

 

We know that giving to this project is a very important decision, for we are asking that you give over and above your regular giving. Thus, we continue to encourage you to pray about your faith promise gift before deciding what you intend to give. Moreover, we ask that you consider the following:

Recall the blessings God has given to you, remembering that everything we have belongs to God and our role is to be good managers of His resources.

Consider the impact that can be made for Christ through your sacrificial gift. Our church has a unique calling to God and the Owensboro/Daviess County community.

Bear in mind that every gift regardless of size will be an important contribution to God's work through our church.

Discuss your family's participation with all members of your family and what it will mean to each of you.

Pray to discern what sacrifice God is asking of you in this process. Pray also for the leaders and church staff for wisdom and strength as they lead the church through this expansion.

Remember, all gifts to the expansion effort are important. We would love to see 100 percent of our members and regular attendees support this effort.We know there will be a sacrifice to give to this building expansion effort.

Thank you for your support of our church.

Daring Faith/Bold Courage Capital Stewardship Campaign
Apr 08, 2018

I believe we are at a defining moment in our history. In 2007, a small group meeting in a house had no idea that one day we would be a church. We now meet for three services each weekend, employ a church staff, have programs for children and teens, and participate in missions in our community, as well as in North and South America, Europe, and soon, Japan. In the past few years we have sensed the growing need for more space to expand our ministries.

In November of 2015, because of generous gifts, we purchased 10 acres of land in the fast-growing East County at 3475 Thruston-Dermont Road. We have patiently waited for God's timing to establish and expand the church to a second campus. There will be room for the expansion of the children's ministry, youth ministry, and adult programs. This will be an additional campus, not a relocation.

Since our first meeting as a church family in 2008, until present, God has blessed our church family tremendously. We have seen our small group grow and enrich our community by starting a Food Pantry, Prayer Shawl Ministry, Backpack Ministry, Small Group Bible Studies, Children's Programs, Middle and High School Programs, Church Choir, and many other missions and ministries supported with your love and contributions.

We, as a church body, have embraced the trials of beginning a brand-new church. The Lord has blessed us as HIS children. We are a church on a MISSION!!! Christ Community Church has been called to lead all to Christ through worship and community, and to impact the world until our LORD and SAVIOR returns.

It is time for Christ Community church to radically step out in a "Daring Step of Faith with Bold Courage." Solomon writes in Ecclesiastes 3:1-3, "There is a time and a season for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to uproot. A time to tear down and a time to build." By God's providence we are debt free. God has impressed that it is time to grow and expand OUR FOOTPRINT IN OUR COMMUNITY.

I ask you to prayerfully consider taking a "Daring Step of Faith with Bold Courage" with me and support this process. Together, through the generosity of God, WE can make the Vision a reality, and REALITY has IMPACT.

Believe + Confess = Saved
Apr 04, 2018

The message about faith is this: If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. As the Scriptures tell us, Anyone who trusts in him will never be disgraced. For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. 
Please do not be disobedient and rebellious toward God. Your eternal life and salvation depend on you trusting in Jesus in your heart and confessing your faith in him.
Contact me if you have any questions or want to talk about this.

Good Choices
Apr 02, 2018

I'm studying Romans 8 this morning and praying for each of you and your precious families. I'm reminded that our choices are so very consequential.
"Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace. But you are not controlled by your sinful nature. You are controlled by the Spirit if you have the Spirit of God living in you. (And remember that those who do not have the Spirit of Christ living in them do not belong to him at all.) But if through the power of the Spirit you put to death the deeds of your sinful nature, you will live. For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God."
Please make good choices empowered by God today. Thinking of you and loving you.
-Mike Marx
