Pine Collective Lunch
Pine Collective is a place of belonging for individuals and families impacted by disability. We will gather once a month for lunch + fellowship to be renewed in God's purposeful plan for our uniquely designed lives. We want to be a place that acknowledges suffering and embraces God's goodness, a place that helps strengthen our church as a place of belonging for all people.

If you, your family, or someone you care for are affected by disability, please join us for an hour over lunch on March 24. Register today. Contact jessica.etheridge@cru.org with any questions.

5th Sunday
Sunday, March 24th has been scheduled as our ‘5th Sunday of the month’ since the true 5th Sunday of March falls on Easter. On 5th Sundays we close the preschool and elementary CCKids classes. Instead, these children will attend the worship service with the rest of the church. We will have “sermon note sheets” and crayons available for kids. Please feel free to bring any other items you may want to have during the service. Our Infant and Toddler rooms will still be open as normal. All rooms will be open on March 31st, Easter Sunday.

We believe there is great value in the age-appropriate, gospel-centered Bible lessons taught by the fantastic teachers who serve in CCKids, and we also believe there is great value in children worshipping with their parents and observing their parents worship along with the whole church. These 5th Sundays provide a great regular rhythm to do just that.

Secret Church
Radical’s Secret Church is a unique, one-night event that happens annually. This year, on April 19, we will gather to take a deep-dive into the book of Ruth, pray for the persecuted church in North Korea, and be challenged to live on mission with other believers! Cost is $13 or, if cost is restrictive, scholarships are available. Register today on the Event Calendar. Contact Kendall Koe with any questions 15koek@gmail.com
