At CCC we believe ministry is both spiritual and practical. And we enjoy the opportunities we have to provide for the tangible needs of those around us. As a result, our church has implemented a successful Food Pantry ministry which seeks to provide food and household staples for those in our community who are in need. Staffed with a passionate team of volunteers, CCC maintains a stocked pantry to care for many families who may be without work or income for the time being. Meeting practical needs with respect and the love of God is the cornerstone of this beautiful ministry. Our desire is to bless people during the storms of their lives and convey this heartfelt message: you are not alone. It's our honor to walk with someone during a difficult time and relieve some of the burden he or she may be carrying.
- Founded in 2009
- 150 families per week
- Largest food pantry in Macomb County

Fathers, husbands, sons, mothers, wives, and daughters are located in the jails of our County. Though they have violated the law in one way or another, they are hungering and thirsting for love, care and compassion. They have a need to hear about the redeeming love of Jesus Christ. In fact, Jesus commanded us to visit those incarcerated.
Matthew 25:34-46; "... I was in prison and you came to Me.’ ... ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’ ...sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’ ... ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ 46 And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
Jesus put Himself right in prison with the prisoner. This is one reason the inmate needs to hear the Good News. Our Lord doesn't look at what they have done. He looks at the heart. As an inmate, what good news there is in knowing, "The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, and saves such as have a contrite spirit." (Psalm 34:18)
The Jail Ministry exists at the pleasure of Sheriff Tony Wickersham, for the express purpose of providing spiritual care to the people incarcerated at the Macomb County Jail. Our hope is that they will become reconciled to God, be involved in a Bible believing local church when they are released, and rehabilitated as productive members of society.
The after care ministry operates transitional homes for men and women to live. Through the power of Christ, the rehabilitation process begins as men and women are transformed into successful members of society and are restored back to their families.
In addition to providing a safe haven for men and women to transition, they are also provided with mentors and a connection with a local church community. Mentors and a strong, loving church community are crucial in the restoration process as it gives them a deep support system to draw from. The men and women are also provided with transportation to and from the church and other meetings and they are provided a membership to the local YMCA.

The mission of LifeBUILDERS is to restore dignity and provide hope to the residents of Regent Park, a Northeast Detroit neighborhood. This is accomplished in three ways: by empowering our youth with life skills and providing opportunities to grow and learn in a safe environment, by reclaiming an entire neighborhood from the effects of disinvestment by providing high quality affordable housing, and by building a community of shared values, trust and hope for the future, all grounded in the truth of God’s Word.
Hope, Healing And Help Through Jesus Christ
Adult & Teen Challenge/Life Challenge Ministries is a one-year residential recovery program for men and women with drug, alcohol, and other life-controlling addictions. At ATC/LCM our goal is more than rehabilitation—helping men and women get clean and sober. Our purpose is to make fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. Consequently, we seek to help men and women turn from their self-destructive ways and put their faith in God. We emphasize Bible study, counseling, and Christian community. ATC/LCM has campuses in Detroit and Flint. Both programs offer a highly structured environment providing a unique opportunity for people to separate themselves temporarily from the normal distractions of life and give needed attention to personal spiritual growth.
