Philip’s Ministries: Annual Valentine Celebration

Nearly 30 women attended the Annual Philip’s Ministry Valentine Celebration held at CCC this morning.
The tables were layered with pink and red linens, floral and shiny hearts.
Pt. Curt opened the program with a prayer and  Pt. Steve brought an exceptional selection of music that made our ladies sing and clap.
The hand bag exchange, the monthly birthday celebration and the lunch time were moments full of laughs.
Praise Our Lord for this amazing group! Enjoy some pictures!


Women’s Conference

January 19, 2019 proved to be an exciting and energy packed day for the Women’s Ministry at Capri Christian Church. Tammy Trent, the featured guest speaker, also a professional Christian recording artist, song writer, author and a former speaker of the Women of Faithtour…blessed our ladies.

She brought to the stage a contagious energy and joy for God accompanied by her amazing voice the Lord gifted her with. She not only rocked our church with her vocals but also with the beauty of her testimony and her deep love for Jesus who comforted her and strengthened her while coping with being a young widow.

Tammy’s testimony was filled with truths about her walk with the Lord as she opened up and shared her heart about loss, healing and hope giving God all the Glory. Tammy has a unique way of connecting to the audience, making women feel as though she is speaking one on one with them. Within the first 5 minutes of hearing her, you already felt a sisterhood with her.

Those that came said they left feeling uplifted and blessed by hertransparency to share her personal life and to be so “real” about the tragedy thattook her husbands life. Her story and her music was inspiring and touched us all.

It was a fabulous time and is best summed up by some of the attendees below:

From Debbie Haeussler: Best conference ever. I was so blessed by her, her testimony and her singing. I was so pleased to have a few words with her inprivate and I’d go see her again and know of women I’d bring with me.

From Donna Condee: I prayed, I sang (and some danced) I laughed. I was moved to tears! Tammy’s testimony is a message of hope for everyone.

Erika Kozar: I was touched, moved and felt warmth when she spoke.Everyone should hear Tammy speak and sing…you will be uplifted.

Praise Our Lord and Savior for all the amazing things He is doing with this Ministry.

Sincerely, Kris Kugler – Women’s Ministry

Capri Weekend

Season is off and running again and what a great start we’ve had.  The Capri family has done a great job with inviting neighbors and friends and our attendance numbers are reflecting your work of inviting…711 total this past weekend.
The last two Sunday’s Pastor Curt has preached two great sermons on Encouragement and Telling the Truth in Love.  Be sure and let him know how much you have enjoyed him and those messages.
After the 11:15am service our kitchen ministry, under the leading of Cathy McFarland and her awesome crew, served up a fantastic church dinner.  This group of volunteers is a ‘well-oiled machine’.  And the food is just fantastic…it’s hard to beat an all-church dinner with the cooks we have at Capri.
Then our choir had it’s kick-off for this season with a Hot Dog & Hee-Haw night.  We had around 37 come out for the event.  We talked about what to expect this season with our concert & Easter Sunday.  This is a wonderful choir family that continues to grow and we would love to have you add to our harmony.
Keep up the good work everyone!

Christmas Eve Service

What a beautiful service to be reminded of the reason we celebrate at Christmas.
Before the service(s) we were welcomed with the beautiful sound of violins playing Christmas music by our own Grace Anne & Lucca Delcompare.  Our praise team led us in the Traditional Christmas carols as our stage was hosting a live nativity with Mary & Joseph (Rachel Coleman & Tim Irving), the Angel (Linda Knight), the Shepherd (Eric Garwood), and the Wiseman (Cam Stokka).  We read the traditional Christmas story from Luke’s gospel in between carols.  The ActingUP drama ministry reminded us that focusing on Jesus is what truly matters.  Pastor Steven sang “It’s Still the Greatest Story Ever Told” and Pastor Curt inspired us with Isaiah’s prophecy of the Messiah, Our Wonderful Counselor!
Special thanks to our many volunteers who set everything up & cleaned up.  Also to our First Impressions Team & Evangelism Team who made all our guests (regulars & 1st time) feel special.  And to you for attending with us and bringing family & friends.  We had over 650 in attendance.


Taste of Christmas

It was another great event with the Taste of Christmas on Capri.  The dynamic voices of Art Bush, Jeff Bush, & Tracy Tooley along with Steven Foster at the piano was a such a great way to kick-off the night.  Our local restuarants didn’t disappoint on the appetizers with shrimp, fried grouper, pizza, bbq, & clam chowder.  There was so much food to taste as our choir & church members brought in some of their finger-food favorites.   
Attendees were all encouraged to take business cards that were provided  and give to these local businesses that say Thank You for your participation in our Taste of Christmas.  Be sure and let them know how much you appreciate them partnering with us.  The participating restaurants on Capri were Pelican Bend, Island Gypsy, & Capri Fish House and then  Sammi’s Pizza, & Paradise Seafood & Gourmet Market both on Marco Island.
We are looking forward to and already making plans for the Taste of Christmas 2019!


Philip’s Ministry Christmas Party

It’s the most wonderful time of the year as the Philip’s Ministry once again had their annual Christmas Party hosted by Pastor Curt & Dreama. The night started off with a competition for the ladies with the best ‘festive jewelry/accessories’ and was it ever tough for our judges.  All the tables were decorated by different individuals from the congregation.  Charlotte Paul, director of the Philip’s Ministry welcomed everyone and reminded all that while the holidays are tough we have each other to lean on.  Audrey Delcompare sang beautifully the songs White Christmas & Silver Bells for the ladies.  The singing continued as Pastor Steven played dinner music on the piano & singing several Christmas carols including favorites like Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, Deck the Halls, & Away In a Manger.  There was so much food as the ladies each brought different appetizers and finger foods…these ladies know how to cook!  Helen Wilson read several nice notes about Pastor Curt and Dreama and just how much the widows ministry loves our Pastor and his wife with their involvement with this special group of ladies.  We also celebrated 3 birthdays last night…Happy Birthday to Greta Mullins, Chris Rossenbach, & Lorna Harris.   It was such a nice way to indeed “Have yourself a very merry Christmas with faithful friends who are dear to us!”
