Do you remember as a little girl doing "connect-the-dot" coloring pages and what fun it was to see the picture emerge as you connected all the numbered dots? In much the same way, when we connect-the-dots in our own lives, a picture emerges. But instead of numbers, we have life dots. Dots like: family dots, faith dots, emotion dots, relationship dots, job dots, parenting dots. Do you struggle putting all those dots together? Does the picture that emerges look the way you want it to?
Our mission is to equip you with the tools to connect the practical instruction of God's Word to your daily choices, challenges and behaviors, to help you connect-the-dots between your questions and God's answers, to encourage you to connect daily with Jesus Christ, to grow in God's Word, and to be open to the leading of the Holy Spirit that works in and through us to connect the life dots between our heart and God's. Our goal is for women to beautifully display God's truth to the world by living lives that are biblically accurate, personally pure, family-centered, evangelistically bold and socially responsible because of the existence of Jesus Christ and His work in their life. And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ to the glory and praise of God. (Phil. 1:9-11 NIV)

...connect through the study of God's Word
Women's Bible Study
The heart of our Women's Ministries is our Women's Bible Studies. Being involved in a study of God's Word is so vital to our spiritual growth and matuirity. As we allow the Holy Spirit to speak to our hearts through God's Word we will find the answers to life's questions. WOW Bibles studies meet year-round. Call Paula to learn what the current study options are or go to our Calendar tab at te top of our home page to see what is listed.
...connect through Serving and Encouraging One Another
Isn’t it special to open the mailbox and be surprised by a card or note of encouragement? Do you have a heart for encouraging others? If so, join us the 2nd Thursday of the month, 9:00-10:30a.m. in FLC-203 and we will spend some time writing and addressing notes of encouragement to our CCC shut-ins & our missionaries. We will supply the stationary, postage, and contact info. Be sure to bring your own pen! Coordinator: Patty McCracken
Make Ahead Meals
Is the local pizza delivery outfit on speed dial? Do you rely on drive-thru fast food, expensive restaurant meals, or packaged convenience foods? Make Ahead Meals is your answer! We will offer 6 different entrees for you to purchase and assemble in our kitchen. As part of our ministry of reaching out to others, we ask that you donate one of your entrees back to the church to use in the Ministry Meals. (II Cor. 9:12) Coordinator: Sally Crum (520)419-8204.
Are you looking for an opportunity to serve? Whether you like to bake a few cookies or prepare a meal or purchase both, this ministry could be just the opportunity you were looking for to reach out and serve the body of Christ. In times of crisis (funeral, surgery or illness) families need special help. Ministry Meals at CCC provides food (whether homemade or purchased) to our church families in such times. The more volunteers on this ministry team, the fewer times you would be called to serve. (II Cor. 9:12) Coodinator: Charlene Wittrock (520)749-5141.

Starting over is never easy, but New Beginnings will help fill the void of fellowship with other women in the same season of life. This is a caring, sharing group who meet on the 2nd Wednesday of each month for food, fellowship, special activities, and encouragement. (Job 29:13). Coordinator: Jackie Gannan (520)886-4025.
