25 Years & Counting week three message from Pastor Chris Russell with Matt Parker, President of Kids Alive International on August 27, 2017 at Community Church of Waterford, Goshen, Indiana.
Where We Are Going!
Nearly 25 years ago God stirred in the hearts of a handful of men and women to start this new church family where the primary focus was reaching people who were far from God and helping people realize that nothing they do can change just how crazy God is in love with them. God has continued to stir in the leadership and individuals of this family and as a result of being obedient to those stirrings, we continue to see God do amazing things among us and through us.
1 Timothy 1:6
As we look to the future, it will be largely determined by how well we sense God’s stirrings and are faithful in following through on them that determine what kind of church CCW will be when it comes together to celebrate 50 years.
President of Kids Alive International - Matt Parker
But this stirring from God that Kids Alive is all about goes way beyond statistics and rankings. At its heart and at our heart here at CCW we have the same desire… to see people’s lives be transformed by the hope that is found in Jesus Christ alone.

25 Years & Counting week two message from Pastor Chris Russell on August 20, 2017 at Community Church of Waterford, Goshen, Indiana.
Where we are at today!
2 Timothy 1:6
1 Timothy 4:12
In the 7 years that I have had the privilege to be a part of this church family, God has stirred a number of times in my heart and a ton of times in the hearts of this church family. And when I think about where we are now it is those stories of stirred up hearts that I think best display who we are as a church family and who we are trying to become not just inside these walls but especially outside of these walls.
Sometimes the stirring God starts in us is to do something to get our families more involved in service.
One of the things I love about how we do ministry here is that we value what God is doing in everybody, regardless of their age.
You’re never too young to get started, and if you’re not dead, you’re not done.

25 Years & Counting week one message from Pastor Chris Russell with Reed Juday on August 13, 2017 at Community Church of Waterford, Goshen, Indiana.
We celebrated 25 years since the founding of CCW! Through pictures, stories, laughter, tears and a lot of joy, we went through the memories of what God did to bring us here.
Though we celebrate the church family, what we truly celebrate is the power of Almighty and Sovereign God who was able to accomplish more than we could imagine through some truly miraculous situations.
THANK YOU DEEPLY from the bottom of our hearts to all those who 25 years ago listened, heard and followed the heart of God, allowing us to be here in ministry to the Kingdom today!
