WE BEGIN WITH TESTIMONIES OF GODS LOVE
Nancy Knight
WE WILL MISS NANCY

On Saturday, May 9, 2020, our dear Canadian friend, Nancy Knight was called home to be with her Heavenly Father.  Nancy was loved by all that had the privilege of knowing her.  She was a gentle giant, full of compassion, always smiling, encouraging and inspiring with the Spirit-filled life she lived and loved.  She will truly be missed.  Rest in Peace Sweet Nancy…We Love you!!    (Editor’s Note)

Below you will find many of our CCM members have written notes/experiences representing, in part, the relationship they had with Nancy and what it has meant to them over the years. 

REMEMBRANCES
Nancy – a sweet, kind and true special friend. I had the pleasure of knowing her for many years. To avoid the confusion of 2 Nancy’s, we laughingly nicknamed ourselves Jo & Tootie!  It was Nancy Jo who invited me to Ziontario in 1997, where I gave my life to the Lord.  She was always that person who looked after other’s needs and would stop at nothing to accomplish it. My comfort now is knowing that she is with the Father and no longer in pain.
-- Nancy Dennis Longtime personal friend & CCM member . ................
 
Our dear friend and sister in Christ, Nancy Knight unexpectedly died last Saturday, May 9 th . We will miss her sunny smiles, her love of praising her Heavenly Father, and her insatiable thirst for knowledge and understanding. Nancy, a resident of Canada, was powerful in prayer; effectively calling on her Father to heal the bruised and broken hearted. She leaves behind a loving family, numerous friends, and hearts that long for her touch. Rest in Peace dear Sister in Christ.  --Laurie Romig ............

Nancy was a long time cherished friend; always smiling, encouraging, loved by all, young and old, and gave the best hugs in the whole, wide world!  I will miss her tremendously.  While at CCM Celebrations, we often shared a room in the lodge which afforded us wonderful quality time laughing, talking about the Lord, scripture discussions, and praying together.  
Nancy’s prayers were always Spirit-filled, uplifting, expectant, and ended with the thanksgiving in her heart for answers to those prayers.  Rest in Peace Precious Nancy…I Love You!       --   Linda Stephen
CELEBRATION 2020 UPDATE

To our CCM family,
I pray this finds you well and in good spirits!
We are so excited about our progress for Celebration 2020, "Blessings of Zion."

We have about 10 callers ready to touch base with 180 families to have a "home visit". This will help us know if you are receiving CCM communications and if any ministry is needed in your home and heart.

Please be praying with us that the persons who are calling these families will hear any needs, spoken or unspoken, and will be able to minister to the hearts of those they make contact. Please be expecting a call from someone wanting to chat with you.

Registration-questionalire for Celebration 2020 will be coming out soon. It is important that you fill it out and fill in what you think your attendance will be to the best of your ability. This will help us know what to expect for all of our classes (school age to nonagenarian), our Camilies, and what our numbers will look like for our services. This type of information will help us know what platforms will be best to use for our attendance. Thank you in advance for your help. 

We are so VERY excited to expand our experience of Celebration without boundaries into this newer territory (boundary-less)! Our Celebration Planning Team, and the CCMLT, share our excitement. In the very near future you will be hearing from them and others leading up to Celebration 2020.

With much love and many blessings,
Christy and JJ Ripsa m
