Castle Christian Home
About Castle Christian Church
We are an independent non-denominational Christian Church.
We believe that in Jesus, God became human, lived among people, taught his Kingdom, died and rose from the dead in order to reveal God to us and institute the Kingdom of God as a radical alternative to the kingdom of the world.
Our goal is to be a community of people who tell the story of Jesus Christ in our worship and our daily lives as a witness to and in anticipation of the final manifestation of the Kingdom after our resurrection! We also believe that knowing God through Jesus fulfills the need in our lives for authentic community in the church.

Church tomorrow and an Important reminder
December 08, 2018Due to the threat of inclement weather tonight in our area, the leadership has decided it would be best to cancel services tomorrow. That doesn't mean you shouldn't take time to worship and pray to our Lord some time during the day.
Everyone be safe and we'll resume our services next Sunday.
Also, don't forget that this Saturday is our Cookies for Heroes day. Please be prepared to get your offering of cookies or candies to Judy Ware's office by 10 am and please supply enough goodies to share between 13 local fire stations.

Update on Pat Little's family
November 15, 2018In response to Pat's earlier request for prayer:
Received these messages from my family.
From my brother Al:"We are fine, the Woolsey fire started about a mile away, but blew south.Another fire started close to us. smoke and ash covered our house and neighbors were packing. but they stomped on that very quickly and it was out in a few hours. Being the engineer, I need to makeimprovements to keep flying embers out."
From my sister-in-law Janie:"Fires down wind of us and getting contained. Scary moments a few days ago but no evacuations. Firemen are awesome."
Now, fellow Castle Christian folks, share this with anyone that says, "Prayer doesn't work."
IMMEDIATE PRAYER NEED
November 15, 2018Pat Little's brother, Al, is needing prayer as the fires in California are only TWO miles from his home. Please take a moment as soon as you get this and pray for the safety of his family and God's protection of his belongings.
