(Compassion-A Local International Volunteer Experience) is an active team acting on the Great Commission which our Lord commanded just before His ascension; that His followers are to make disciples of all nations, and that every believer is a witness for Jesus Christ, trusting in the power of the Holy Spirit, and that we are responsible to pray for, support, and send missionaries into all the world.
At CCC, we believe in the value of developing strategic partnerships with missionaries and missions organizations across the world. As a church, we want to see people around the world find relationship with Christ; and so, we invest in leaders, give financially, and send people and resources to help fulfill the Great Commission. Through short-term mission trips and partnering together with like-minded ministries we can expand our reach and make a greater impact for Christ.

Change of Heart
Each quarter at Ceres Christian we are given the opportunity to support a project with our spare change-we call this Change of Heart! From the oldest to the very young, we bring our collected change and offer it to the Lord for the current project. Past projects have included supporting a Christian hospital in Niger, back to School supplies for impoverished children in west Modesto, water well in Niger, Africa and an Orchard Project in Guinea, West Africa.
Get started today by picking up a collection container at the information desk in the foyer.
Join your family together to pray for your offering!

Changing hearts & changing lives!
Every year a group of CCC members drives to Dilkon, Arizona to serve the Navajo people at the Navajo Christian Foundation(NCF). Each year comes with a new set of service projects and strengthening of continued relationships. This year's big project was to help with the construction of a house for the orphanage.
