Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

     All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom all spiritual blessings are given to us because we are united with Christ. We thank God for you and remember you in our prayer’s as you are a crown of joy given as a blessing to us from our Savior. As we enter into this season of Thanksgiving and reflecting on the birth of Jesus we wanted to share with you updates on the marriage between RdR and CCC. Our staff and elders have been working diligently to unite as one church.

Updated service times will provide additional fellowship opportunities between 1st & 2nd service, allow Children’s Ministry to have ample time for check-in/check-out and is an efficient flow for parking.

Children’s Ministry: Beginning January 7th we will have a united Children’s Ministry where programs will be the same for 1st & 2nd service.

Youth Ministry: The two Jr. High/High School groups will continue under Pastor Drew and Pastor Todd through the end of the school year. Beginning in July Pastor Drew will lead the Jr. High (6-8th grade) Ministry and Pastor Todd will lead the High School (9-12th grade) Ministry.

Community Groups: Beginning in January we will offer both sermon-based and topical community groups with options according to life-stage.

Finances & Giving: Beginning January 1, 2018 RdR and CCC will combine their finances and all giving will be made out to Carlsbad Community Church through online giving, check, mail or Sunday offering. We are thankful for the generosity and faithful giving of many in our congregation. As we come to the end of 2017 we encourage you to consider giving an additional financial gift as we prepare to launch as a united Carlsbad Community Church. Our leadership is committed to stewarding our tithes and offerings to glorify the Lord as we initiate projects and updates at CCC, serve God’s people, and our local/global community for Christ.

Website: Beginning January 7th CCC will launch the new website: 3c.org

What we are still working on

  • Men’s & Women’s Ministry
  • Campus Updates (Signage, technology/media upgrades, playground, etc.)
  • By-laws, policies, procedures review
  • Missions Ministry & Community Outreach

We have much to look forward to in 2018 and our heart is to be a church in downtown Carlsbad with a heart for our city. We trust in the Lord’s sovereign plan for His church and encourage you to intentionally seek new relationships and pray without ceasing as we grow in the grace and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

To The Glory of Christ,

Pastor Alvin Helms & Pastor JC Cooper
