CCV Church: Highlights this Week:

- Mid-Week Prayer Service
- Newcomers Lunch Sign-up in February
From Pastor Steve’s Study:
God is so great, gracious and good. One of the ways He shows that is through you, CCV. After a weekend like this one, I am reminded how blessed Roz and I are to be a part of this church body.
First, is the way in which so many of your tirelessly serve beyond expectation. To those of you who were working in various ways on Saturday in the dress outreach, then returning early yesterday to set up and handle all the details for our service and meal, my deepest thanks.
Second, is the manner in which you make visitors and new comers feel welcome enough to join in our activities.
Third, is the way you continue to grow in love for one another, enjoying one another in the unity of the Spirit.
Finally, is the increasing hunger for the word of God to be alive and active within you as we grow in being transformed to embody the nature of Christ. It is such a comfort to know that we are building on the one foundation, Jesus Christ.

Missions Focus: The Raynor Family – Church Planting in the Yucatan, Mexico
What a pleasure it was to have the Raynor family, Len, Natalie, Noah and Caleb, with us this past week; a big thank you to all those who hosted them. They were glad to know that we care about their work for the Lord in Mexico.
The cottage meeting Friday night provided a chance for those in attendance to interact on a personal level in a small group environment. The Raynors shared some excellent videos of their work as well as one where Noah took us on a narrated tour of interesting sights around Motul. During discussion time, Len explained that one needy area is getting across to church members the fundamental principles of a godly marriage (see prayer request 5, below).
On Sunday, all those present got a glimpse of the joys and challenges of church planting in a foreign culture. Len and Natalie are very thankful for the two capable, spirit-filled men, Armando and Luis, that God brought to their church. They are able to take over for them when they are away. The question and answer time during the meal was great!
Linda Clouse blessed the Raynors with 40 girl’s dresses to take home with them; What a wonderful way to combine CCV ministries!
Some specific prayer requests (1) that they would get much needed rest during this home assignment (2) for God to call another couple to partner with them in Motul (3) for all the challenges they will face as they move into their new building (4) for the necessary finances for that move (5) for God to challenge a few couples from CCV to come to Motul to lead a marriage seminar. Yes you read that right – from CCV! PRAY!

A Bit More About CCV:
- CCV Giving Is Facilitated In Two Ways:
- One Calvary Chapel distinctive is that no offering plate is passed during service. There is a Tithe and Offering box located at the back of the sanctuary
- Giving online is convenient and can be set up at the CCV website www.ccvillages.org
- Facilities – We are currently leasing the community center where we worship on Sundays. There is an “Expansion Fund” for CCV folks to give toward a future permanent facility. You may give by identifying your donation for this purpose on the envelopes (info table) or online.
