Greetings! Welcome to Canyon Lake Community Church's ConneXion. This is the place for you to learn about what is going on
at CLCC and her ministries.
Congratulations to Dave Dick who last
Tuesday was commissioned by the Classis of
California to the status of Pastor Dave Dick. Pastor Dave was commended by the Classis
of California for excellence in his studies and
exams. This Sunday
in the sanctuary
with Pastor Pete
8 a.m. ­ Classic Worship
9:30 a.m. ­ Contemporary Worship
11:00 a.m. ­ Traditional Worship
The congregation will have an opportunity to
participate in a Commissioning Service for
Pastor Dave in the near future.
The new carpet installation is scheduled
for this week.
This Sunday is Palm Sunday
which traditionally marks the
beginning of Holy Week. In the
Gospels, we read that "most of
the crowd spread their cloaks on
the road, and others cut branches
from the trees and spread them
on the road. And the crowds that
went before him and that followed
him were shouting, 'Hosanna to
the Son of David! Blessed is he
who comes in the name of the
Lord! Hosanna in the highest!"
(Matthew 21: 8­9). The crowd
was praising and honoring Jesus
on this day, but the atmosphere
changed just a few days later. As
we continue our "Amazing Grace"
series and focus on the goodness
of God, the question we will
consider is whether or not our
circumstances determine whether
we honor and praise God based
on what is happening in our lives,
or whether we honor and praise
God for who He is, all the time. I
am going to ask each one of us to
imagine that Psalm 27 is the
"branch" we are waving in honor
of God's amazing grace. I
encourage you to read and
meditate on this passage of
Scripture before Sunday morning.
This Sunday
in Threshold
with Pastor Thor
9:30 a.m. ­ in the gym

Meeting on Tuesday Mornings

Contact Pastor Pete to sign up.
When it comes to loving the
unlovable, there's a lot of guilt
involved. "I know I should love
this person, but I don't. They're
unlovable." It's the same with
loving the least, except the guilt
isn't over how we feel about
them. The guilt is about not doing
enough for them. How do we
avoid the extremes of guilt and
condemnation when it comes to
loving the unlovable and the
least? This week in Threshold,
the topic is how to "Love the
Unlovable and the Least." That almost sounds
pragmatic, doesn't it? But the
answer the gospel gives us is
always counter­intuitive to what
we think is best.

youth activities). We appreciate your support for
our kids!

Priscilla Shirer's Breathe: Making
Room for Sabbath
One of the greatest challenges among
women in our culture is taking time to
stop and cease from all the activities
and busyness and just breathe. By
neglecting time for tranquility, serenity,
and repose, we limit our Christlikeness
and miss out on some of God's greatest
gifts. Sign up on Tuesday evenings or in front office.

(619­892­5644 or
[email protected]) Celebrate Recovery (CR) is a place where you and your whole
family can come to find support, encouragement, and real
relationships in an environment that is both safe and
At CR you are free to get real about the hurts, habits, and hang­
ups we all have as part of our experience as human beings.
Whether you're dealing with finances, family stresses,
depression, over­eating, addictions, building honest friendships
­ or maybe you're just plain tired of pretending everything in
your life is 'fine' when it's not ­ whatever the case, CR will help
you live in true freedom. For those of you who STILL think Celebrate Recovery is just for
alcoholics or drug addicts, here is a partial list of other issues God can
heal through the Celebrate Recovery Ministry:
This group is for those struggling with the compulsion to rescue and take
care of others, have difficulty setting boundaries, or recognizing their own
worth. Members in this group learn to express their own needs and
wants in healthy ways.
Freedom from Anger
These recovery groups are for men and women who find that anger is
their first response to problems of any size. The anger may be very
evident as rage, or less obvious in terms of withdrawal and isolation.
These groups focus on managing a God­given emotion in constructive
Love and Relationship Addiction
This group provides a safe place to deal with the depression, isolation,
lack of trust, and the unhealthy use of love and relationships as means of
achieving worth, that are characteristic of Romance and Relationship
Sexual Integrity
Support group for those seeking recovery from lust and compulsive
sexual behaviors. This group provides fellowship, is a safe place to share
our struggles, pain and victories and helps to establish accountability and
mutual support among the group members throughout the week.
Physical / Emotional / Sexual Abuse
This group is for those who have endured past physical, sexual and/or
emotional abuse. Recovery includes healing from the traumas done to us
at sometime in our past, as well as healing from the influence these past
experiences continue to have on our lives.
Chemical Dependency
If you find you cannot quit drinking or using drugs entirely, or if you have
little control over the amount you consume, you are probably an alcoholic
and / or an addict. If that is the case, you may be suffering from a
problem which only a spiritual solution will conquer.
Adult Child of Family Dysfunction
The family problem of alcoholism made us "co­victims" ­ those who take
on the characteristics of the alcoholic without necessarily ever taking a
drink. Choosing to recognize and exit the modeled behaviors of
alcoholism is the beginning of recovery for the ACFD.
*Newcomers 101
The Newcomers 101 class is a one time class designed to familiarize you
with the various components of Celebrate Recovery. This is a great
opportunity to ask questions and to help you identify an open­share
group to attend the following week. During the latter part of the class, the
group breaks out into a men's group and a women's group to give you a
chance to share and to ask more detailed questions.
