Join us for a one-on-one conversation with Author Tom Gilson about his new book Too Good To Be False. Too Good To Be False seeks to look at Jesus from a different perspective than majority of Christian books today. Tom’s book highlights the greatness of Jesus from a different angle, encouraging deeper growth in knowledge and intimacy with Jesus. To Good To Be False has received numerous endorsements from influential writers and ministry partners.
CCEM is excited to have Tom meeting with our community exclusively to discuss his book, and answer some questions about his research about Jesus. We hope you will join us on October 6th at Noon on Zoom!
CCEM seeks to serve our community to love and encourage our brothers and sisters at ExxonMobil. This year has introduced many new challenges with how and when we are able to meet together. We have tried to adapt to the current environment and would like to get your feedback on how we’re doing as well as ways we could do better going forward.
Please take a few minutes to provide your thoughts at the survey link below. We appreciate you!
There is undoubtabley anxiety, concern, and hardships for many of our brothers and sisters throughout the country. Between COVID-19, Racial and Social Justice issues, and economic hardships, now more than ever it is important for us as a body of believers to be a light and an encouragement for those who may be hurting.
Checkout some of the following resources for tips on how to be an encouragement to others during this strange time.
“and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.” (Hebrews 10:24-25)
As we continue to battle COVID-19, we know that now more than ever how important it is to Be The Church to each other. We need to continue to maintain smart social distancing as a way to love our neighbors, family and friends, as well as a way to continue battling this disease. Fortunately, today’s technology allows us to continue meeting together, while not being physically together.
The CCEM Team wants to provide some virtual resources for you as opportunities to continue meeting together in a safe, socially distant way while at home.
