This week, CCESL is blessed to have a group of youth from Viera, Florida joining us to partner with us in ministry and to do a couple extra special events for the English Speaking community in Lima. If you live in Lima, we’d like to invite you to come join us this week at any of our normal events, and to come out to these special events.
Wednesday June 8th
CCMV along with our own worship band will be hosting a special worship night from 7 pm to 9 pm. Come join us for a night of music and testimonies, and learn more about who God is and why we worship Him.
Friday June 10th
Once a year, we rent a building in San Juan de Lurigancho and have a coffee shop night for all the people who live in and around this part of town. There will be English music, American desserts, games, and tons of opportunities to practice your English! Invite your friends and come join us at Recepciones Canoa Av. Constelacion 2501 sta Elizabeth 1, San Juan De Lurigancho, just one block from our church in SJL and a few blocks from paradero 20 de Proceres de la Independencia.
Saturday June 11th
We are also inviting everyone to come join us at our church building in SJL for a movie night this Saturday night at 6 pm. The movie will be in English with English subtitles and the team will be there to hang out and share with anyone who wants to come join us.
The team will also be joining us this week for conversation clubs and our normal Sunday services. Make time to come out and join us! We hope to see you there!
Last Saturday, we were blessed to put on a conference called Pure Life. God put it on our hearts to spend a day studying what it means to live purely, especially in the area of dating and relationships. We had over 50 people attend and saw many people make decisions to dedicate themselves and their future relationships to purity and to the Lord. God was faithful to work in peoples hearts loving, forgiving, and teaching them how to live for Him. And everyone was refreshed and encouraged by the Word of God.
One of the hardest area’s of our life to wait on God, the area where we are tempted and struggle time and time again, is the area of relationships and sexual purity. Saturday, April 23rd, we will be hosting a conference to study what God’s plan is for our lives in this area, and to pray for and encourage each other to trust in and wait on God’s perfect timing and plan. The conference will be all in English. Anyone is welcome to come join us whether you go to CCESL or not, but we do ask you to come sign up so we can plan for how many people will be coming. The cost is 5 soles and includes your materials and dinner. Invite your friend and come this coming weekend to sign up. If you have any questions feel free to write us at email@example.com. We hope to see you there!
We’d like to invite you to come join us for our special Bilingual Easter Service this coming Sunday. Invite your Spanish speaking friends and family to come join us for this Special day as we remember and celebrate the reason for the hope within us.
Continuing with the theme of prayer and our desire as a church to make prayer a very important part of our fellowship, this week we will be showing the movie war room at CCESL. Whether you are a Christian or not, whether you normally attend services or not, this movie will impact your life in a big way. So invite your friends, make time, and come join us this Wednesday, February 24th at 7 pm at CCESL in Lince.
After finishing most of the books in the New Testament on Sundays at CCESL, we have begun to study the book of Revelation. We invite you to come join us on Sundays as we learn what God has to say about our past, present, and future of this world and what is to come after. If you’ve missed the first two weeks or if you want to listen online again, you can check out our Revelation Archives page and download the teachings to take with you. Invite your English speaking friends and family and come join us this Sunday at CCESL.
We are excited to announce, after many years of people requesting a night time conversation club, that this Tuesday, February 1st, we will be starting a conversation club in Lince from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm every Tuesday. This conversation club is open for anyone that is at least an Intermediate Student.
We also think there is a need for a conversation club for advanced English speakers who are looking for special training for exams or business. If you are interested in a conversation club like this or have a suggestion please send us a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This past Saturday night, with the help of a small team of missionaries from Wisconsin, CCESL hosted our biggest coffee shop night we’ve ever had. Once a month, we open the doors of our church, set out the tables and games, make tons of yummy American desserts, and invite English Speakers from all over Lima to come join us for a night of Music, food, fun, and English–all the while giving us a chance to meet new people, build relationships, and share the gospel. Usually we do this the last Friday of every month, but since we had extra help here, we decided to add an extra one into our schedule, and God blessed it greatly. We had such a huge response, so many new people, and God showed up in big ways. The room was packed all night long and everyone got a chance to serve and minister. We are looking forward to seeing fruit come out of these new relationships, and to our normal coffee shop at the end of this month. Keep this awesome outreach in your prayers!
So, as with everything else in our lives in December, we had lots of busy fun, yet our schedule changed quite a bit. But we are happy to inform you that starting this week, all of CCESL’s activities will return to normal. We will once again have conversation clubs (Wednesday & Friday in Lince; Tuesday & Thursday in SJL), Believers Night Wednesday nights at 7, and Home Fellowships every Friday night in Magdalena and SJL. For more information about activiites, you can check out the activities page by clicking here.
We also want you to know that this month, CCESL will be hosting two coffee shop nights. One at our normal time (the last friday of the month) and the other THIS SATURDAY NIGHT at 7pm with a special group of people visiting us from Wisconsin. It will be just like all the other coffee shops–music, food, games, and LOTS of English. So invite your friends and come join us this Saturday night. And why you’re still on vacation, don’t forget to check out the many other activities CCESL has to offer! We’ll be seeing you soon!
