The Churches of Christ in Christian Union

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!
 
  

New CCCU Churches

Planting new churches is the most effective evangelistic strategy in the world. Thus, it is central to our purpose. Below are updates on new church plants and recently established CCCU churches.

Launched and Funding

Hispanic Ministries - East Central Ohio - Dan & Peggy Zimmerman

Veteran missionaries Dan and Peggy Zimmerman, through World Gospel Mission, the CCCU General Missionary department and the General Church Extension department, launch a new Hispanic ministry in central Ohio. Due to the developing nature of this ministry, an exact location cannot be announced at this time. As Dan and Peggy make contacts and develop this ministry, their goal is to establish a new Hispanic congregation. Please pray that the details for their outreach continue to develop and comes the fruition.

Flemingsburg, Kentucky - Pastor Donnie Reed

For over a year the Maysville, KY CCCU church prayed about a possible church plant in Flemingsburg, KY. In April Donnie and Amy Reed agreed to begin a prayer group that met at their home each Monday. Through that prayer meeting, God began to speak to Donnie about planting a new church in his hometown with Maysville CCCU serving as the host church. The new church launched this fall (2012) with service being held in a rented space. The harvest truly is ripe and this was the time for to respond. Please pray with us as Donnie and Amy, along with a core group of 25-30 people reach out in Fleming County Kentucky. You can follow the progress of this new work on Facebook.

Madison, Ohio Lifeline Church - Pastor Evan Nunnally

Lifeline Church is the third church that pastor Evan Nunnally has planted. The church building (current meeting location) was sitting vacant and previously occupied by an Episcopal Church. With the leadership of Rev. Joe Duvall and pastor Dale Diggs, Lifeline purchased and renovated the entire building. From the electrical to the carpet, much of the building received upgrades and repairs. On June 3, 2012 the church opened for their first service. 145 people came to see and experience what Jesus was doing in Madison, Ohio. On that very first day, six people came to the altar. Our hope is that this is just the beginning of what Jesus Christ is going to do at Lifeline Church.

Jacksonville, Florida The Master's House International - Pastor Gideon Charles

The Master's House International is the fourth church plant by Dr. Dave Lawson. God connected pastor Dave's vision with the calling of pastor Gideon Charles. Gideon pastored and led congregations throughout the Caribbean and in the United States. In 2010, a core group began meeting on Sunday afternoons at Christ Fellowship Church. The church soon began renovating a small business space transforming the space from a coffee shop to a sanctuary of praise. On December 25, 2011, The Master's House International celebrated their first service. They have welcomed many from the community to experience the presence of God. We praise God for the life transformation. By God's grace, we look forward to all God is and will continue to do through The Master's House International.
