CCC Serving Spree: We Were Saved So We Could Serve!



For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Ephesians 2:10


Followers of Jesus are new creations, regenerated with serving in mind.

Our Heavenly Father has a Kingdom, and a will for us.  He has specific acts of service in mind for you!


The Christ Community Chapel Serving Spree is a great way to help you discern His will for you.

One way to learn God’s perfect will for your life is to try different types of serving.  When you are operating in your giftedness, you will find supernatural joy.


What are some current serving opportunities?

Some specific possibilities are:



  • ·      Attending the First Glance Open House, March 19th, from noon to 2 PM. This is a great way to get acquainted with First Glance’s ministry to kids in the Kenmore area. For more information, see the Serving Spree website shown below and contact Melinda Nawn at: melnawn@gmail.com .
  • ·      Participate in a Community Group Field Trip to Restoration Chapel.  The first event will be March 29th. A group of 10 people can leave the CCC Hudson campus at 5:45 PM; service is from 7 to 8 PM. For more information, contact Barbara.ammirati@ccchapel.com .



Lives are being transformed through mentoring, worship and teaching at Restoration Chapel.

God can guide us best when we are already in motion.  We encourage you to  prayerfully explore Serving Spree opportunities that could be a way for you to use your gifts!

CCC Serving Spree: Doing It for Jesus



‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

From Matthew 25


Jesus takes our acts of justice and mercy personally.

When our love for Jesus motivates us to serve the less fortunate, He rejoices.  Sacrificial service enables us to be Christ incarnate to those in need.


I want Him to rejoice. What can I do?

Here are some suggestions for community groups, families or individuals to consider, as Christ Community Chapel’s Serving Spree gets into full swing:




South Street Ministries  is hosting a Front Porch meeting February 6th, from 7 to 8:15 PM. This is an opportunity linked to Pastor Jim Colledge’s Act II initiative. Join Jim Colledge for an encouraging evening as you will get to see some wonderful things the Lord has done with funds donated by Christ Community Chapel Micah 6:8 initiatives. You will also hear from some CCC Act II members who have played an important role in the transformation of the Front Porch building and the ministry inside the walls of that facility. If your group has a mix of Act II and younger members, please know all from your group are invited. RSVP to: Kathy.Grubbs@ccchapel.com
