August is going to be GREAT at Cedar Creek Church!
On August 3rd, all three campuses of Cedar Creek Church will join together at our West Campus for a New Life Baptism Celebration, starting at 6:00. If you haven’t had the opportunity to sign up to be baptized, have signed up before but was unable to participate or feel like this is your next step in following Jesus, it’s not too late! You can get more information about baptism and sign up to be baptized here. Since we’re having this at our campus, all are invited to stay after the baptism service and enjoy the water park! The only thing that could make that night better is ice cream, so we’re asking all who are willing to bring their best home made ice cream, prepared ahead of time and in a cooler with you. If you’re willing to provide a churn of ice cream and a serving spoon for it, please sign up here. We will provide bowls, spoons and napkins.
Each school year there are many families in our local community that cannot afford school supplies for their children. This year we want to encourage your family to BE THE CHURCH by supplying at least one backpack to a child in need by partnering with one of the schools in our area. More information will be coming your way on August 3rd.
On August 17th, our Centerpoint area (for middle and high school students) will gather again at the West Campus, using the Aiken Family Y Water Park for the Back to School Bash, starting at 6:00. This is a church-wide event for all Centerpoint students to celebrate the beginning of a new school year. There will be food, games, fun and a great time had by everyone. For more information, please contact Jeff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Check out this video to see how we, as a church, are impacting children in our community.

This Sunday is Mother’s Day. A day set aside each year to celebrate and honor Moms, and we’ll be doing that as a part of our worship at all three of our campuses this weekend. I hope you’ll be able to be there to be a part of this very special day. But, I also know that while this a day of celebration for many, for some of us, this is very difficult day. Celebrating Moms is a painful reminder of something that has been lost, missing or is broken in your life. Putting the spotlight on Moms feels like its shining a light on your pain, and because of that you usually avoid church that day. If that’s you, I just want you to know that I’m sorry for your pain. I can’t imagine how difficult it is for you. But, because I love you, I also want to encourage you to push past it and join us this weekend. We’re continuing in our series called Positive ID and I’m convinced that God has a word of encouragement, hope and healing for you. Your pain, loss and brokenness are a part of who you are, but they are not the final word on your true identity. Join us at the campus of your choice this Sunday and discover who you really are!
EGG HUNT FINAL UPDATE: The Great Aiken Egg Hunt has been rescheduled for next Saturday, April 26th – same time (10 to 12) and same place (SAHS Football Field). Hope to see you all there!! Share this update on your page and let all your friends and family know!
