Our 2017 Advent Offering

Last year was our first experience of having an Advent Offering which replaced our February Sacrifice Offering. What a thrill it was to receive nearly $67,000! This offering helps in providing disaster relief when such events occur on our mission fields. It also assists in the operational costs. This past year funds from this account enabled us to send finances to Yemen for the Humanitarian Relief and just recently, to our churches in the Caribbean region due to the damage from the hurricane.

Our theme for the offering this year is The Way in a Manger. Truly, He is the way and the truth and the life… John 14:6. Let’s not hold back in sharing The Way with friends, neighbors and those around the world. You may not feel called to another country to share The Way, but we can all lighten the load of those who have responded to the call God has given them. Let’s work at making this offering the best yet! The goal this year is to raise $75,000.

Your gift will make a difference today!

Pentecost Sunday Prayer Summit

On Sunday, May 15th, 2016, churches from across the CCCU will gather for the first Pentecost Sunday Prayer Summit.  General Superintendent Dr. Thomas Hermiz is calling all of our churches and members to be involved in these two hours of blessing and intercessory prayer. We will be praying for a great variety of needs including the desperate need for revival in our nations and denomination. We will also be praying for the sick.

The service will include three remarkable answers to prayer including Rev. Mark Murphy's healing from cancer at last year's Mount of Praise Camp Meeting. Mark will also sing one of his Christ-exalting songs before my message. A highlight will be Dr. Melvin Maxwell's closing prayer of blessing. 

II Chronicles 7:14 "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."

CCCU churches in various regions will serve as host sites and simulcast the event. For those unable to attend in person at a simulcast site, the service will be streamed live online.  The live stream address is
