As part of our 5 E’s, CCC will take you through a series of Christian Life and Service Seminars (C.L.A.S.S.) that will help you understand why God desires you to experience a closer relationship with Him and also to prepare you for achieving that next level in your personal relationship with Him.
Currently, two unique and engaging seminars (Embrace 101 and Engage 201) are held periodically on the first Sunday, starting at 2:00 p.m. Each seminar is 3 hours long and designed to systematically step you through a process of understanding your participation in Christian life and service. Midway through each seminar, a short break and meal are provided. During these seminars, child care is also available.
Note: The Express 301 and Equip 401 seminars are not implemented at this time.

- Express 301 (Ministry)
- Equip 401 (Missions)

Embrace 101 – Connecting with Covenant is an introductory class. In this first session, you will meet Pastor Grant, hear him express his passion for Christ, and hear God’s vision for CCC. You will also have the opportunity to share with Pastor Grant your desires and expectations at CCC. Since we have members from many different ethnic and social backgrounds, as well as denominations, we have designed this seminar to clearly explain:
- Who we Are
- What we Believe
- Why we Exist
- How we Operate
- Where we are Going
The purpose of Embrace 101 is to inform and help you, as a new member, with “connecting”, as rapidly as possible with your new CCC family. Our goal is to help you to facilitate your growth in Christ, to the next level.
After completion of Embrace 101, you will be asked to complete Engage 201 as the next session.
Maturity 201 focuses on three basic habits of Christian growth and offers helpful and practical insights on:
- Spending Time Daily with God
- Learning to Give
- Meeting Together Regularly with Christian Friends
The purpose of Maturity 201 is to provide you with the basic steps you will need to start “growing” your understanding and faith in Christ and fulfilling your journey to “becoming more like Christ”.
At CCC we believe that “Every member is a Minister”. Being a Minister of Christ means “serving” others. The purpose of Express 301 is to assist you with understanding what you are called to do for Christ and then to help equip you to accomplish that calling. Through the S.H.A.P.E process, you’ll learn how God has uniquely designed you and desires to use your
- Spiritual Gifts
- Personality and
to minister to others. You will also get a personal ministry assessment and interview to help direct you to the ministry activity you are called for.
The purpose of Equip 401 is all about “sharing”. Sharing your story of how God has worked in your life can be one of the most powerful and effective tools you have for introducing or connecting people to God. In the Equip 401 seminar, we will help you discover your lifetime mission. Specifically, what God has called you to do to further His Kingdom. You will learn how to share your personal story and witness how your life experiences can touch lives for Jesus. You will also discover that God has a global plan for reaching people and that He desires for you to be involved in that plan.
Hallelujah! is the highest praise that we can give our Creator. Here at CCC, we are excited about praising Him and embracing every opportunity to magnify Him. We have many ministries that are focused on “worshiping” God. Please take a moment to review them. If your calling is to magnify Him, we’re sure there is a praise ministry here suited exactly for you. If music or fine arts is not your specific giftedness, then join in with the rest of us in raising our voices and holy hands in praise for His goodness, His grace, and His mercy.
