1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY

Since November 20, 2017 our church family has accomplished many phenomenal FAITH initiatives! With God's help and blessing we have impacted countless lives in our church family, locally, regionally and globally! Here at Capital our 5 FAITH goals were prayerfully considered and intentionally developed to directly align with our 5 values. As you will see in the graphics below, in the last 12 months the depth and width of serving Jesus here at Capital Christian has grown in ways that require faith- in ways that have required God's help and blessing!

PEACE Center April Update

PEACE Center April Update

PC4.jpg
 

On March 4, 2017, we opened our PEACE Community Resource Center in the building once known as Fusion Coffee House. 

"We are so excited about the renovation of Fusion into the new PEACE Center. We have strategically repurposed the entire building to better serve and help our community. We now have space for resource meetings to connect with the families coming in for the food pantry, extra storage and a great classroom space for all of the skill development classes we have to offer our community including our Discipleship Track class." 

The PEACE Center is our launching hub for the local PEACE Plan. The PEACE Plan's specific purpose is for normal people empowered by God to make a difference together wherever they go. PEACE is all about addressing the five global giants - spiritual emptiness, self-serving leadership, poverty, disease and illiteracy - through the power of ordinary people in our church! 

The PEACE Center is a place where we serve those in need by equipping, assisting, educating and caring for them. Within the last month alone our church family's generosity has made it possible for us to serve families in our community through the PEACE Center and our local PEACE Initiatives.

February Purpose Driven Ghana Trip

February Purpose Driven Ghana Trip

To help fulfill the Great Commission, we have united with the nation of Ghana along with 20 additional International Partnering Churches who have united with other African countries to help launch and equip nations whose priority is to operate by the five Biblical purposes!

Our commitment started in 2016, shortly after several of our pastors traveled to Rwanda to see the impact Purpose Driven had on that country. Under Pastor Dave, we boldly accepted the role of teaching national church leaders Purpose Driven strategies, and tools to reach communities and Unengaged, Unreached People Groups. Click HERE to read how our journey with Ghana began.

After countless hours of partnering preparation, our team traveled to Ghana to officially begin implementing Purpose Driven strategies. During the first week of February, Pastor Dave and our team taught Purpose Driven Essentials to 137 pastors who committed to becoming Mentoring Churches. A Mentoring Church implements Purpose Driven in their own churches, and in turn mentor other churches in implementing Purpose Driven principles. This created a multiplication model of ministry.

Our mission in Ghana is "A nationwide movement of healthy churches transforming their communities."

We are successfully partnering with four Coaches, including the Director of Ghana Evangelistic Council (GEC), the General Secretary of the Church of Pentecost, and a local bishop who oversees 20 churches.

As Pastor Dani Payment explains: “Once a month, these four Coaches will each train eight of the Mentoring Churches that have committed to implementing Purpose Driven/PEACE Plan.” Pastor Dave will travel to Accra to continue teaching parts 4 and 5 of Purpose Driven Essential Training. “In just over a year, we went from literally zero missions in our church, to now adopting the nation of Ghana,” says Pastor Dani.

Courageous Faith January Update

Courageous Faith January Update

 

In January we tune in to God and allow Him to shape and direct our focus for the coming year. We open our hearts. This January is an opportunity to share God's love and peace with others, to bring hope to the hopeless, to serve those who are hurting and meet the needs of people. Most important, this is our chance to share the hope of Christ!

Here are a few of the ways our church family has been pursuing just that through Courageous Faith Initiatives:

Peace Center

Recently renovation began in preparation for the opening of PEACE Center. The PEACE Center is a place of compassion where our community's residents can come when they need assistance. While providing for the immediate need, the PEACE Center's goal is to introduce people to Jesus and move everyone forward toward healthy life change.

At Life Skills 101, one of our local PEACE Initiatives offered at the PEACE Center, participants learned and practiced public speaking, how to change a tire and more! Pictured here are Life Skills 101 graduates and teachers.

In addition to being place of resource the PEACE Center will act as a hub for launching members into local and global PEACE. Since we launched Courageous Faith in October 2016, we have expanded PEACE Initiatives such as Fresh Food for Kids, Healing Hands Ministry, Food for Seniors, Hope for the Heart and Life Skills 101. These local PEACE initiatives have dedicated hundreds of hours through the PEACE Plan, and people young and old are receiving the love and hope of Christ.

We truly believe that healthy churches are growing churches and taking the Good News to Ghana means training hundreds of churches to become healthy in their community! As we meet with local churches in Ghana, it is our goal to train and develop them and their church members and community further in order to effectively grow and share the Good News of Jesus. By partnering together, we are fulfilling the Great Commission and sharing the Good News in the nation of Ghana!

Support Groups UPDATE

Now with more involvement than ever, people are finding the hope they need through community and connection that is filled with comfort, strength and hope. Support groups help us learn to trust God’s control and power as he guides us to wholeness during trials, tragedies and traumas. Groups such as Celebrate Recovery, The Daniel Plan, Financial Peace University, Grief Share, Divorce Care and Conquer provide help for today and hope for tomorrow!

A Letter from Pastor Dave

FOUR BIBLICAL WAYS TO GROW YOUR FAITH


FIRST: Listen to God's Word being taught.

So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. Romans 10:17

SECOND: Know and believe the promises of God.

We've been given the same promises as those people in the wilderness, but God's promises didn't do them any good because they didn't receive the promises. Hebrews 4:2

GENEROSITY HONORS GOD

GENEROSITY DRAWS ME CLOSER TO GOD

GENEROSITY MAKES ME MORE LIKE JESUS

GENEROSITY IS THE CURE FOR MATERIALISM

GENEROSITY DEMONSTRATES MY FAITH

GENEROSITY REVEALS MY CHARACTER

GENEROSITY BRINGS GOD'S BLESSING

GENEROSITY INCREASES MY HAPPINESS

GENEROSITY EXPANDS MY INFLUENCE

GENEROSITY MULTIPLIES MY MONEY

GENEROSITY BRINGS GOD'S PROTECTION

GENEROSITY WILL BE REWARDED IN HEAVEN


THIRD: Do whatever you've been afraid to do!

I will not be afraid because I trust in God. Psalm 56:11
The the LORD said to Moses (at the Red Sea), "Why are you crying out to me. Tell the people to get moving!" Exodus 14:15
Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them! John 13:17

FOURTH: Read testimonies of others growing in faith.


LASTLY: GET planted in church family.
