May News and Announcements
Christ Church Rolesville The church plant has officially launched this month. We want to remember that those who stay at Christ Covenant are also a vital part of this local church ministry. Your role will be constant prayer, encouragement and stepping forward to fill vacancies left by the leaders and volunteers that accepted the call to plant this church. We would encourage you to make a commitment to pray for them over the next year. Pray that God would sustain them, and that the church would bear great fruit in Rolesville.
Fellowship Starters The weekly fellowship starters are an excellent way to engage in fellowship as you discuss the application of the sermon with other believers. These questions are available each Sunday on the blog at cccraleigh.org. You may also pick up a printed copy on the table in the narthex.
