Emma is one of our own who grew up and served here at Cottonwood Creek. She was an intern in the Student Ministry for a few years and the next part of her story involves the Lord leading her to another country on the other side of the world to serve Him in an amazing way.
Cottonwood Creek staffers took a break this week to thank the men and women of the Allen and McKinney Police Departments for the service and protection they provide each day. Two Rows in Allen catered the event.
At the beginning of 2015 we introduced you to Imagine One, a giving campaign that encouraged giving 1% more than what contributors were currently giving. During that year so many of you stepped up to the plate and met that challenge. By doing so, God used those gifts to bless other churches, ministries and people across the world. In Baltimore, Maryland, the campaign helped support a church plant and a shower facility. Across the world, your gifts helped fund a laundromat at Naomi’s Village and a children’s home in Kenya, Africa.
It also made a difference close to home. Our reach is expanding and to keep up with our growth we were able to create two new Life Group rooms on campus. Other repairs were able to made on our building, including replacing the roof on the original part of the building. Also, for the first time, we provided a free Vacation Bible School and Fall Festival, allowing more kids in our community to hear the Good News.
The 2015 Imagine One recap video that was shown in Worship Services last Sunday was truly inspiring to see how the Lord used our church and how the possibilities are even greater in 2016. Check this video out and go to the link to find out more about Imagine 1 and the 1% Challenge.

As a young mom with three kids, Julie thought she was healthy. She worked out and ate well, so a cancer diagnosis was the last thing she was expecting. Julie was connected with a cancer survivor at Cottonwood Creek who told her, "You aren't going to understand why this is happening to you now, but in the end you will know why." Watch Julie's testimony to learn about why God allows pain and suffering.
