LET GO AND LIVE
CURRENT MESSAGE SERIES
What is the rhythm of your life today?
Is it frantically trying to keep up with a furious drumbeat or is it a steady groove where you live out of an effortless flow?
It's an important question because life is not a sprint, it’s a marathon and so many people become burned out because they are constantly stressed by all of the demands of life.
Stress is exhausting! It wears you down and eventually you burn out. Even when you want to rest and sleep you can’t because your mind is continually racing, reminding you of all your responsibilities, deadlines to meet, bills to pay, health issues, children to look after, emails to reply to and texts to answer.
Jesus, your Shepherd sees you stressing and striving every day and He says to you, "Let Go" so you can Live". In Matthew 11 Jesus says;
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” [Matthew 11:28-30 MSG]
We are starting off the year by responding to Jesus' invitation. This is a series that will leave you refreshed each week. Set aside your Sunday to come to church and learn to live freely and lightly in 2019. Everyone welcome!

CURRENT c3kids message SERIES
Our new C3KIDS series "Mr. Brightside" is all about having faith in God. Each week we unpack an area in our lives that we can have faith for. Our memory verse is “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” [Hebrews 11:1]
We are believing our children will receive a revelation about what faith looks like. We can have faith in God in so many areas of our life because of who He is. He is a good God and good to us, always!
A PLACE TO CALL HOME
"How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God; this is the gate of heaven." (Genesis 28:17)
At the core of C3 Church Hong Kong is a passion and mandate to connect people to Jesus Christ and see them live their Best Life. We believe this is best done through the House of God, the local church. As people plant themselves in the House of God, we believe their lives will flourish and become fruitful (Psalm 92:12-14). Our vision is to build a legacy of transformed lives and to see salvation in our city become a reality.
This year our dream is to lease our own facility ‘a place to call home’ and we believe we have the resource and capacity within C3 Church Hong Kong to do so. Investing into our own leased facility will enable us to:
Hold multiple church services;
Hold Leadership, Training and C3 College courses to equip people;
Have a dedicated Worship, Arts and Creative Center
Have a place to host Connect Groups
Have a place to hold Discipleship Training
Have a place for our C3 Office and Administration
Together we can commit to this dream and see the vision become a reality. This is the House of God. This is your House. Together we are Vision Builders!
What is Vision Builders?
Vision Builders is the way in which we can all contribute towards the financing of our own leased facility for C3 Church Hong Kong.
How can you be a part of Vision Builders 2018?
Prayerfully consider the level of giving that you feel is appropriate for you, based on wisdom, prayer and faith. Remember, the philosophy of Vision Builders is equal sacrifice, not equal giving.
Make a formal commitment to give on a Vision Builders commitment envelope available on Sunday, April 2. Alternatively, you can obtain a commitment envelope at any time after this date from the Information Desk.
Choose your method of fulfillment
One-off gift: Give a one-off gift any time throughout the year.
Regular Payment: Make a regular monthly contribution to fulfill your commitment.
Direct Bank Transfer: This can be organised through your bank who can arrange a regular transfer that occurs automatically to fulfill your commitment.
Can I give to Vision Builders instead of Tithing?
Vision Builders should be seen as giving ‘over and above’ the Tithe. If you are not yet tithing then we would encourage you to prioritize the Tithe first.
I am new to church, should I be giving to Vision Builders?
There is no pressure for anyone to give to Vision Builders, nor is there any minimum requirement. New people who would like to give are most welcome, as is anyone who finds that our vision resonates with them.
Do you need my details? I wish to remain anonymous
You may remain anonymous if you wish and all details of your giving will be kept confidential. However, to claim tax deductibility for your giving we will need your name and address details.
C3 Church Hong Kong is a charitable institution and is exempt from tax under Section 88 of the Inland Revenue Ordinance. Donations by Hong Kong residents to C3 Church Hong Kong are deductible.
