Chist Community Church

CCC Logo3 copy.jpg

As you may know, this past Sunday both Veritas Church and Redeemer Church voted unanimously to join together to form Christ Community Church! This is tremendously encouraging and marks a new season in the life of our church. We thank God for his faithfulness and guidance during this merger process. Over the next few weeks, there are a number of administrative and practical details that will need to be tackled in order for our two churches to become one. We ask for your continued prayers for God's favor and wisdom. Keep an eye out for an updated website and information where you can let others know about Christ Community Church. 

In the meantime, here is a reminder of our upcoming schedule:

  • July 22 - Last service at Gold Miners Inn (10:30 am)
  • July 29 - Begin meeting together at Foothill Event Center (10:00 am)

Our first "official" Sunday as Christ Community Church will be August 12, and this is the date we will be publishing online and in local media. This two-week buffer is intended to work out any remaining wrinkles and get things organized as the new church.

Please continue to pray for God's good work amongst us and for great fruit to come from this new endeavor!

Together: For Christ and Community

As you may know, in recent weeks we shared our intention to merge with Veritas Church and join together as one new church. In view of this, we will be holding combined services over the next five weeks (June 10-July 8). During this time we will be looking to God's word to provide the vision and emphasis of what this new venture ought to be like. Our focus over these weeks will be to worship together and unpack the following statement:

"Together, we will exalt Christ by combining our resources to make disciples for the good of our community, to the glory of God."

  • June 10: We Will Exalt Christ
  • June 17: By Combining our Resources
  • June 24: To Make Disciples
  • July 1: For the Good of Our Community
  • July 8: To the Glory of God

Service Time and Location
10:00am @ Foothills Event Center
400 Idaho Maryland Rd
Grass Valley, CA 95945

In order to help answer as many questions as possible related to this transition, we have prepared an FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) document that aims at clarifying the details around this proposal. If you did not pick up a copy this past Sunday, please download it here.

Should you have any questions about this transition or would like to talk further, please do not hesitate to reach out to myself or Mark. I believe this joining together can be a wonderful statement of our union in Christ and our combined desire to glorify God in these foothills. Please join me in continuing to pray for God's direction and wisdom as we walk through this together.


Small Groups: May-July


Our weekly small groups will begin again in May and meet over the course of 12 weeks. During this term, both groups will be working through the topic of evangelism and discipleship. Each week we will meet to discuss a portion of a book and learn together how the whole church speaks of Jesus (evangelism) and how to help others follow Jesus (discipleship). Also, for this term, we would like to invite children (ages 13 and up) to participate as well.

Missionary Update - Zimbabwe

We are thankful to be able to support gospel ministry, not only here in Grass Valley, but within the country of Zimbabwe as well. Please read through the most recent update from Pastor Thomas Hodzi as he serves as a missionary in Zimbabwe, Africa.

Hello family,

Thank you so much for your prayers and support. This month we thought we could highlight the Rima porject/ministry that complements the rural pastoral training and orphan ministry we do through COFIM. It's in the format of a powerpoint (I hope you are able to open it) and we hope it gives you a better understanding of this important ministry and the impact it has on the pastors, church, and the community.

Please be praying for the following:


  • The imminent birth of our fourth child


  • We have been growing as a church and are moving to a new venue in a month. God has been very kind in this regard.
  • We are adding 15 more members this month

Rima Project

  • Rain
  • Encouragement for pastor Bob as his crop failed due to the drought in his area
  • Praise for the projects that have been doing well.

Thank you so much again for your friendship and caring for the gospel in Zimbabwe.

- Thomas Hodzi
