Christmas Eve

On December 24, at 7:00 p.m. we invite you to join us for a very special Christmas Eve service!  This day marks the completion of our Advent season and we will conclude this service with our traditional lighting of the Christ candle and sharing of this light as we circle the church to share in the song, Silent Night!

Grace Tabernacle, the Congolese church, will be joining us for this service and sharing some music with us as well as other special music, including some Romanian Christmas music!  Come and join with us as we finish our preparation and celebrate the birth of our Savior, who is Christ the Lord!

Manna Saturday

This Saturday, December 21 will be another Manna offering at CCBC.  We will serve a hot breakfast of eggs, hash browns, bacon, fruit, cereal, etc...  from 9:30-11:00 a.m to our local community.  We have had as many as 45 (non-church) visitors to these meals and invite our members and friends to join us for this event to sit and dine with our visitors in this important outreach program. 

Many of our visitors join us by invitation to our local Crooked Creek Elementary School, from our neighborhood, or by word of mouth and many of them live right in our community.  Crooked Creek Baptist began this meal in response to the number of families at the school who qualified for free and reduced lunches. 

Besides offering a hot breakfast and take home food from our pantry, we also offer fellowship with our visitors reminding them that they are important to God and to God's servants.

This month, thanks to the generosity of a donor, all of our visiting families will have a chance to receive frozen ground venison or stew meat! 

Thanks to all of our hard working volunteers and faithful suppliers who make this ministry possible!  See you Saturday morning!
