CCESL has changed a lot in the past several years. As the church has grown, so have the dynamics of the congregation. At one time, most of our church was made up of young, single people. But in the last few years, marriages have formed, families have grown, and a lot more couples began to come to our church. Then, this past weekend, God brought Pastor Bryan Michaels and his wife Jeanine to teach a marriage conference. We had more than twenty couples come join us to learn and be reminded of God’s plans for our marriage. There were people from all walks of life—those who aren’t married yet, those who have been married a few years, and those who have been married many years. And as we studied the Word of God we were encouraged to be marriages that reflect Christ in a dark world. Hearts were encouraged, broken pieces were healed, and the families in our church were strengthened.
