Welcome to CCM

Welcome to the Christian Church of Midland’s website.  Look around.  You’ll notice several articles, links, and pages.  After you’ve finished your online visit, I hope you’ll give us the opportunity to meet you personally.

The first thing that you’ll notice when you visit us in person is how friendly, vibrant, and engaged in ministry we are.  Faith is important.  Love, grace, and forgiveness matter here.  Our love and faith overflow in Midland through our involvement in our schools, neighborhood, and community.

Thank you for visiting our website.  I look forward to meeting you soon.

The Preacher’s Pen

I am sitting at my desk again this month with writer’s block! This is two months in a row! Most of what I want to write about is found in the pages of this issue of the Oasis. You know as
I was writing that last sentence I thought of one thing that I can write about that is not in this issue. I hesitate to write about it though. “Why”, you might ask? I’m hesitant because it has
not been completed yet. “What is it?” you may wonder. I’ve hinted at it during the Sunday School Class that I lead on Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. – a class that you are welcomed and encouraged to attend.
Oh, I began to wonder in my train of thought – again. “What is it that you could write about,” you may be asking yourself. Well, it’s a special service that I have asked a couple of people to
help me put together. This service – in my mind – is working out as one that you (and the friend you invite) will remember for a long time to come. More important than that, I believe this service will bring us closer together as a church and, most importantly, it will draw us closer to God.
Do I have your curiosity pricked a little bit? I hope so. This service will be as memorable and impactful as the Sunday Service where we ate together and the service where we threw rocks – in the service! You don’t remember those? Were you here then? If you weren’t here – we might revisit them in the future.
This special service – if we can get things together will happen on Psalm Sunday which is April 5th this year. Pray that we can put it together because I believe that you will be impacted by it.
One other thing that I can mention is to plan on being at our Annual Sunrise Service on Easter Sunday. We will have breakfast after the service and then an early Worship Service at 8:30
a.m., Sunday School at 9:30 a.m., and our regular Worship Service at 10:30 a.m.


I guess things come to you as you begin to write.
See you Sunday – with a friend!
