CCSJC Updates

Ministry: Now that summer has ended we all get back into the routine leading into fall. For many of us kids go back to school, homework, carpooling, etc, becomes a part of our daily lives. At Calvary we also have some things that are on the horizon. 

Mens Study: We have our Iron Man Study that is beginning Tuesday Night September 24th. This year we are going through the book of Ephesians. Its going to be an exciting time of growth. This study provides a great opportunity to get connected to other brothers in the church. Its a time to encourage one another in our walk with the Lord. 

Women's Study: The Women's study is beginning once again on Friday mornings and Monday evenings. This year the ladies are going through the book of 1 Corinthians. I have looked at their study and it is going to be a true blessing. 

Final Beach Baptism: Our final Beach Baptism of the year will be Sunday September 22 at Doheny State Beach at 4:30pm. 

Community Outreach: We have our final Church in the Park event on Sunday September 29th at the Historic Town Center Park in downtown San Juan Capistrano. We combine all four weekend services into one outreach. We have music, a presentation of the gospel, a chance for people to come forward and receive Christ. All of this is followed by a BBQ and concert. It provides a great chance for everyone to come together as one. 

Mens Retreat: October 11th-13th at Green Valley Lake. The Theme of this years retreat is "RETURN" taken from the book of Hosea. 

Harvest Festival: Coming on October 31st join us as we take back the night of Halloween, with a Harvest festival held on the ball field right behind the church. We are going to be canvasing the schools and neighborhoods for this free event. We will have all kinds of activities from rock climbing wall, bounce houses, obstacle courses and games for the whole family. And throughout the evening we will be preaching the gospel and handing out tracks with all the candy. 

Helicopter Unit: Our church has adopted a Marine Helicopter Unit. We have been invited to deploy with them locally for three days. During that time we will be serving all the food. WE also will be showing the film Courageous to the troops. And Sunday morning we will be having a church service for any who want to attend. Amazing opportunity. 

CCSJC App: Also I am really excited to announce we have a brand new church app available on the apple store. This is a great resource that can reach anyone anywhere who has a smart phone. It is free and can be downloaded at the app store by simply typing in CCSJC.  

Expansion: Please keep us in prayer as we are continually seek the Lord for direction, and open doors for expansion. WE have outgrown our present location and are asking the Lord to make a way where there seems to be no way.
