Christ Connection Worship Planning Team
The C2 Planning Committee meets each Thursday at 6:00 p.m. for 60 minutes in the Conference Room. We begin by sharing where the Spirit, energy, love, joy was at last week’s worship. We check that all is in place for the coming weeks worship. We brainstorm ideas for upcoming worship paying particular attention to worship in the next 2-8 weeks. We conclude by deciding which ideas to implement and how to recruit to fulfill them. All are welcome, members and guests, to come weekly, occasionally or even once if you have an idea you want to share.
