Week of April 23, 2018

April ESLR: This month’s ESLR is GODLY LEADERS! Godly Leaders are students who mirror Christ’s character and behavior in diverse environments and who consider the interest of others above their own. (Philippians 2:3) “Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.”


CCCS Night of the Arts Performance: We cordially invite you to attend the CCCS High School Choir’s “Night of the Arts” performances on April 27 and April 28, at 7pm in the Main Sanctuary. This year’s concert will feature selections from “The Music Man” and the new Broadway musical “Hamilton”. You don’t want to miss out! Tickets are $5 and they can be purchased in the HS Office or “at the door” before the performance. Please bring unsaved family and friends because the Gospel message will be given at the end of each performance!
