Is. 54:1 “Sing, O barren woman, you who never bore a child; burst into song, shout for joy, you who were never in labour; because more are the children of the desolate woman than of her who has a husband,” says the LORD. Is. 54:2 “Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes. Is. 54:3 For you will spread out to the right and to the left; your descendants will dispossess nations and settle in their desolate cities.
In January 2014 as leaders of CCBC we sensed that the Lord was calling upon us to prepare for growth by expanding the place of worship. The text of Isaiah quoted above spoke to us powerfully. We felt like the Lord was telling us that more people will be born into the Kingdom of God than we are used to (vs1). We should therefore enlarge (vs.2) the place of our tent of meeting (church building).
It is with this conviction that we are now embarking on the two phase church expansion project. With the Lord’s help we intend to build the Youth Center and the offices as the first phase and then do the second phase thereafter which will be the expansion of the sanctuary itself.
May I invite you to be part of this exciting work that the Lord is doing here at CCBC by praying for the project and contributing financially and materially to the building project as you feel led by the Holy Spirit.
