Annual Report 2021

Each year we hold A Vision Sunday or Night of Vision to celebrate the blessings of God for the previous year. We also look into the heart of God for our local church family for the new year.
 
We present the entire congregation with the Annual Report that included financial statements for 2020  and a budget for 2021. However, greater than any financial number is the many ways God blessed in 2020 in spite of a very unusual year. We sense God speaking into 2021 with three points of direction. 
 
Please feel free to download a PDF copy of the 2021 Annual Report for Community Church at Hackleburg.

A Special Day with Special Guest

Do not miss this Sunday morning for a special day at Community Church.
 
We are excited to have the Kirby family ministering with us this weekend. Too many of our church family, the Kirby’s are not new and to others, they may be. They have served in ministry in many roles and places over the years. From youth pastoring a large youth group in Florida, to helping lead a school of ministry here in Alabama, the Kirby’s have served with passion, excellence, and a drive to see the lost come into a relationship with Christ and His Church.

Sister Tracy will join in with our worship team using her gifts and passions to help lead God’s people into His presence. Brother Tommy will use his great gifts to uniquely share God’s Word with us. Be ready to worship and to go into God’s Word for a timely and important day in God’s plan for our church. 

Invite someone to join you with worship starting at 10:00 AM.

Movie Night

Lights Camera Action! 
Hey, Church family and friends we want you to mark your calendars for a night of fellowship and fun. We are looking to enjoy a good family movie together on September 13th. We are expecting to start a little after 7:00 PM (if the sun follows the sunset forecast). We may even have a few surprises before we start. Load up your vehicle with snacks and chairs and come on out. You can sit in your car, in the bed of your truck, or pull up a lounge chair (social distance safe!) and hang out with your church family.
 
One more thing, while we want to spend time with our church family, this is such a great time to invite someone to join us. Maybe they do not go to church, are not saved, or just need a time out, take the time and invite them. You will be surprised at how many will join you.

Calling Group Leaders-Fall 2020

Can you take prayer request? Or play a DVD?
 
If so you could be a Connect Group leader this fall! 
 
Connect Groups are our place to get together in small groups to share in life. Groups can gather a variety of ways and for a variety of things. There is no better time than right now to help our church family and others connect in small groups to share life. 
 
What and how do group leaders need to gather with their groups?
 
1) Meet weekly online (zoom or another format) 2) Meet in person or 3) a hybrid of the two (example: Meet weekly online and then monthly for an activity)
 
Do I need a book or material to do a study on to lead a group?
 
NO! While it is ok to use books or materials to do a study, it is not required. One of the most effective small groups we have known is one that had two simple objectives each time. One, they ask if anyone had a prayer need and then they prayed for each one. This lasted only a few minutes many times (and longer on occasion). Secondly, they shared “how has your life/week been so far?” Simply it was “Prayer and Share.” It does not hurt to have some food and maybe a simple activity (games or something to do if the sharing is limited). 
 
What are some activities I could do? 
  • We have had golf groups, hiking groups, prayer groups, and more.
  • You could do outreach or serving activities as a group for those in need.
  • You could do a book or Bible study. 
  • You could watch (online or in-person) a study taught by another teacher- DVD for example.
  • You could do a sermon discussion group. Discuss what God spoke to you in that week’s sermon, how you are applying it, and what questions you had. (This is a great group to become “doers of God’s Word .. not just hearers”)  
 
Please reach out to Pastor Josh with more questions, to sign up or to share an idea. Call his phone 205-935-3549 (ext. 103 and it will even ring his cell if he is out of the office) or email him at JLynn@OurCC.org 
 
You can be a group leader!!

School Supply Drive Thru

In just a few days our students will be headed back to school. We want to help make sure they have the supplies they need to be successful in the classroom. On Tuesday 8/18 from 5pm – 7pm we will have a school supply drive thru where supplies can be picked up. We are located at 9700 Hwy 172, across the street from the school.
 
Supplies are general (folders, pencils, paper, calculators, binders, etc.) and will be divided into backpacks and given out per student. Similar to the food distribution previously done by the school, we ask that your student be with you in the car.
 

We understand that high school students are not allowed to have backpacks this year.

We have binders available for them.
 
If we have any supplies left over they will be given to the school and available through the counselor’s office. If you have any questions please contact Pastor David dray@ourcc.org
 

Please keep our students, teachers and administrators in your prayers throughout this school year. It will certainly be challenging, but with the help and support of our great community, it will be an amazing year!!

 
 
 

**Each year Community Church collects backpacks and supplies for our students in honor of our dear friend Nancy McCarley. Nancy was a giver! She made sure no one went without. We are proud to honor and remember her in these efforts.**

School Supply Drive

In just a few short weeks school will be starting back and our students need our help. For the last couple of years Community Church has hosted a backpack and supply drive for Hackleburg Elementary School in honor of our beloved sister Nancy McCarley. Sister Nancy was such a giver and made sure that no one went without. This year, the school has let us know that they have several backpacks. They will still need a few, but the bigger need is for supplies. In addition to normal school supplies they are in need of sanitizing supplies such as Lysol wipes and hand sanitizer.

 

Here are a few suggested items:

Number 2 Pencils
Cap Top Erasers
Composition Notebooks
Crayons
Scissors
Glue Sticks
Notebook Paper
Plastic Folders
3 Ring Binders
Color Copy Paper
Construction Paper
Zipper Pouches for Binders
Headphones / Earbuds
Expo Marker
Highlighters

Lysol Wipes
Lysol Spray
Hand Sanitizer

 

Items can be dropped off at the church anytime. There is a table under the overpass between the buildings where they can be left or there will be a table in the lobby Sunday.
 

All items donated will be sanitized before distribution or delivery to the school.

Thank you so much for your help! Please continue to pray for our students, teachers and administrators as they begin a new school year in such a challenging time.

If you have any questions please contact Pastor David. dray@ourcc.org

COVID19 Response: Mask Ordinance 7/17/2020

Over the last few weeks, our state and specifically our region have had an increase in COVID19 cases making this virus very near and real to our community. This past week our Governor, Kay Ivey, updated the previous order to include face mask or face coverings to be worn in public. This is not to protect you but to reduce (regardless of how little or much it does) the spread of this virus so we can continue to live our lives.
 
In the last few weeks, our services have been powerful as we have seen people saved and baptized in water. We are working to ensure our continued ability to meet on campus. It is with that heart that our Next Steps Team and our Pastoral Team are in agreement with our State Overseer, Bishop Brian Sutton that Community Church will comply as we have with all previous orders to the mask and face coverings on campus starting this Sunday, July 19th through July 31st (two weeks). We are and will continue to evaluate how to respond week by week to this pandemic to keep our church family and community as safe as possible. 
 
Facemask will be available as you enter the building if you need one. If you decide to join us online as others have done out of choice, we respect that personal decision and support you. For those who come on campus to worship, we will exercise the heart of Jesus by being willing to lay down our opinions or wishes for others. This is true love and we love our church, community, and beyond. As a church family, we want to serve our community by doing all we can to diminish, reduce, and protect our fellow neighbors. 
 
We will be very attentive to the order of service and the length of service due to the newness of this order and its physical discomfort. Our heart to serve others will continue to drive us in this hour. Let us all join together in unity to love God, love one another, and pursue our mission to Impact our Community, Region, and World for Jesus. 
 
In our concerns and even at times confusion, God is working on your behalf. He is moving His purpose forward for HIs Church. Let us look up to where our help comes from. Let us take comfort for our redemption draws closer. These things should not distract us but focus us. Let us be excited to see what God is going to do for His advancement of His Kingdom.
