My heart is filled with joy

Dear Congregation,
My heart is filled with joy as everything seems to have come together for the closing on the sale of CCC’s property to Westminster Christian Private School to be finalized today! These last couple of weeks have been very busy here at church, as property repairs and updates have been addressed, much paperwork has been completed under the direction of Attorney Colletti, and needed inspections arranged and performed. The old adage “It takes a village to raise a child” might be transformed by our experience to the statement “It takes a congregation of committed people sharing their vision and talents to sell a church, thus ensuring its future.”
A heartfelt thank you to Lorrie LeGrand, Graham Bryan, Daniel Best, Antonia Godley-Juarez, Judy Carlson, Fay Gordon, Karen Kett, Joan Chandler, Joan Campagna, Jim Ketzle, Miriam Grissett, David Williams, Julio Balcells, and Marilyn Pearson, the many members who have worked so hard to make what began two years ago with realistic
assessment of where we were as a church come to fruition. Gone will be the heavy burden of being landlords, with all that has entailed. I know many of you join me in feeling that a weight has been lifted from our shoulders!
In the next twenty years of leasing what we use of the property, who knows what can faithfully be done with so much less time spent on property issues and so much more in the way of assets to act as Christ’s body in this world!
We will celebrate big-time on May 21st with a catered brunch after the Installation worship service, but we’ll begin the celebration after worship this Sunday, as Lorrie LeGrand is bringing cupcakes All this joy and cupcakes, too! Plan to be here!
Psalm 110 really speaks to me today and so I share it with you for your joy!
We do indeed praise God for this new day for CCC!
Thanks be to God!
In Christ’s love and peace.
Pastor Candy

Psalm 100
All Lands Summoned to Praise God
A Psalm of thanksgiving.
Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth.
  Worship the Lord with gladness;
  come into his presence with singing.
Know that the Lord is God.
  It is he that made us, and we are his;
  we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
  and his courts with praise.
  Give thanks to him, bless his name.
For the Lord is good;
  his steadfast love endures for ever,
  and his faithfulness to all generations.
