Christmas Eve Worship

December 24th, 2017

Mark your calendars - Dec. 24th, 6pm - join us on Christmas Eve for a special candlelight service (in addition to our regular services)! We will gather together to celebrate the reality that our God became man in order to rescue and redeem us!

Plan to attend and feel free to invite extended family, neighbors, and co-workers. This will be a family-friendly event and ALL are welcome! Also, we would love for you to join us after the service for Christmas refreshments!

Mercy

Christmas Mercy Offering

December 24th, 2017

“Mercy is a command of God, yet it cannot simply be a response to a demand. It must arise out of hearts made generous and gracious by an understanding and experience of God’s mercy…The hearts of the congregation…must be melted until they ask, ‘Where is my neighbor?’ ” - Tim Keller

Once a year we take up a special offering at CCC. Every dollar of this offering is distributed in Jesus’ name to those in our local area who have physical/material needs. More than a handout, we evaluate each request to assure that it helps someone rather than simply creating an unhealthy dependency.

In the generous spirit of Christmas, please consider a special gift this year during the 6pm Christmas Eve Service.

Neighbor love is one of the distinguishing characteristics of Christ-followers. It is one of two commands upon which the entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based. “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” — Jesus

Spiritual transformation pco

Unfinished Business Intensive Seminar

January 20th, 2018

$5

CCC offers a 10 week class to help you address the Unfinished Business in your life. This class, along with other electives, are offered on a regular basis to help you move forward in the spiritual transformation of your Christian life.

Our next class will begin following the seminar (start date to be determined) and will continue for 10 weeks. A prerequisite for this course is that you attend one of Dr. Steve Smith's seminars or read his book, The Key to Deep Change. There will be a women's class led by Beth Rudolph, and a men's class led by Steve Rudolph. If you would like to attend this class, please register at register.44life.com.

What exactly is unfinished business? It is simply whatever emotional, mental, and spiritual baggage you continue to carry. It is what traps you into living out your life in unhealthy ways. Unfinished business is the monster that lives under your bed, bodies hidden in your cellar, skeletons in your closet, secrets not told.

Partnership class

Partnership Class

January 26th, 2018

At Celebration Community Church, we want to give people every opportunity to be connected into community and to understand the culture and language of the church. We have a series of classes called "Discovery: The Path of Discipleship," and it is designed to move people from attenders to partners, and help everyone understand how to grow as a disciple that believes and applies the gospel.

The first class is titled "Partnership," and teaches the distinctives of CCC, and gives you the opportunity to become a Partner at CCC.

To officially become a partner, you will need to fill out an application online, review the church documents attached (they are taught at the class), and then meet with an elder. The application and documents are here, and we encourage you to look at these before the class!

Women's Bible Study - Sola Scriptura

February 6th - March 20th, 2018

The Gospel of Mark is believed by most scholars to be the first gospel written. Who wrote it? Why was it written? How does it fit into the whole of God’s word? How should it shape our thinking about God and His Kingdom? Using our Bibles we will unpack the answer to these questions – and many more! This “study” is for students of the Word of all levels.

There are no workbooks, no DVD's, an no homespun stories - Just YOU and the SCRIPTURES.

This Bible Study will take place on Tuesday evenings, February 6 through March 20, from 7:00PM - 8:30PM. We will meet at 221 Norfolk Place, Celebration FL 34747. There is no cost. We look forward to seeing you there!
