Embrace our Missionaries: Come and hear about the amazing ways God is working through the Christ Church Supported missionaries around the world. Please join us for “Embrace our Missionaries” prayer and update meeting the last Sunday of each month in Room 102, 10:20-11:10 am. The purpose is to provide emotional and physical support for each of the CCGF supported missionaries and their families. They face constant spiritual battles and a home connection from you helps them know that they are not alone in their mission. During the prayer time, you will receive updates and often have an opportunity to hear from one of our missionaries and/or their families. Come and hear about the amazing ways God is working through the Christ Church Supported missionaries around the world.
