We Give Thanks_slide_primary.jpg

We are grateful for you

CEM appreciates your prayers, partnership, and gifts. Have a hope-filled Thanksgiving!

"We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all God's people--the faith and love that springs from the hope stored up for you in heaven…

 

In the same way, the gospel is bearing fruit and growing through the whole world--just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God's grace."

 

Colossians 1:3-6

Direction Church

In a normal year, planting a church is challenging. Experiencing a pandemic while planting is beyond compare. However, Direction Church pastors, Jared Nassiff and Patrick Willis, were able to pivot and launch online services in June 2020. Rather than opening in late 2020, they are setting their sights on an in-person launch in Spring 2021.
