UPCOMING ACTIVITIES

January Connect Cards: For every Connect Card that is filled out on Sunday this month, a donation will be made to Chattanooga Room in the Inn.

February 8: Starting Point: Starting Point is an opportunity for anyone who wants to learn more about taking their next steps to be more like Jesus. Equally beneficial for guests and long-time members alike, this one-session class covers five characteristics for every growing disciple, ways we want to help you grow in those characteristics, and how the whole process is shaped by the vision and mission of our church family. This opportunity is open to everyone who has an interest in, or questions about, becoming part of the Clear Creek family. This is an online class that takes place on the second Monday of every month. To register, go to our Starting Point page.

Celebration Stories: To read about celebration stories shared by our church family and the latest issue of the Celebration Magazine, go to clearcreekcoc.org/celebration.

With the current situation, we have re-imagined our calendar. Please see links for Children, Youth, and Upcoming Activities.

Wednesday night and all activities at the building are postponed until further notice.

Get Connected. Taking your next step to become more like Jesus is best done with others who are on the same journey. If you don't have a dedicated group of people to walk alongside with you, go to Next Steps and we will help you find a group

TEACHING

January 17:  TAKE THE LAND:  PART 2, FACING YOUR FEARS. This Sunday we will look at the greatest obstacle to taking new land: fear. As an old preacher once said, “New levels means new devils.” Likewise, new land means new fears. But it can also lead to greater courage and confidence. In Joshua 1:1-9, God calls us to greater courage and He gives us the secret of success even in the face of fear. In Person or Livestream (9:30 and 11:00am) on YouTube.com/Clearcreekcoc or Clearcreekcoc.org.
