One of the great things about being a multi-site church is that there is always a reason for a party somewhere. Last weekend at CCC-Pilsen we had our one year anniversary celebration and this weekend at CCC-Montgomery/Oswego we had a big party to celebrate our fifth anniversary! I got to be there on Saturday night and the place was packed! A whole bunch of us stuck around for a meal, reminisced and watched a video of highlights from the last five years. Then on Sunday four people got baptized and there were so many people at the 11:00 service that we ran out of chairs! After that we did the whole anniversary party all over again for the Sunday crowd.
I’m really proud of Carter and the whole team at CCC-Montgomery/Oswego! Not only have they seen remarkable growth for the last five years but this site has reproduced two new sites: CCC-HomeTown; CCC-Yorkville and a NewThing church plant: Reunion Christian Church in Boston. Good job CCC-Montgomery/Oswego and happy 5th anniversary!
