Water for Charleston
Last Sunday Pastor Denver made an appeal for CCWC to collect bottles of water for the chemical spill in West Virginia. Money was also collected. From Sunday to Wednesday morning, CCWC members got the word out by Facebook, e-mail and personal appeal. A total number of bottles of water, paper plates, plastic ware and hand sanitizers is not known but as you can see in the top picture, there was a lot!
Sixteen people with trucks signed up to transport the supplies. We did not need all of them but are grateful for the amazing response to help!
The water was taken to Faith Community Church in Charleston. This is a struggling inner city church that in the best of times deals with serious life issues. This crisis put a strain on an already difficult situation. Pastor Chris Shinn and wife, Lisa were very grateful for the donations of supplies and money.
$3069 was raised to help with this emergency!
Thank you good people of Christ Community Wesleyan Church. Your willingness to literally “offer a cup of cold water” was evident of Christ’s love in you!

I am so thankful for you and people like you who believe in the mission of the church of making disciples. Your faith and vision to see the need of expanding facilities in order to expand Christ’s ministry is obvious.
