Prayer at C2Christ Church, Seminole Florida
Prayer at C2Christ Church, Seminole Florida

Prayer is the practice of the presence of God. It is the place where pride is abandoned, hope is lifted, and supplication is made. Prayer is the place of admitting our need, of adopting humility, and claiming dependence upon God. Prayer is the needful practice of the Christian. Prayer is the exercise of faith and hope. Prayer is the privilege of touching the heart of the Father through His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” James 4:8

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Phil. 4:6-7

Father, in Your mercy, hear our prayers.


Wednesday Worship & Bible Study

Bible Study at C2Christ Church, Seminole Florida
Bible Study at C2Christ Church, Seminole Florida

When I encourage people to study the Word of God it is a way for the people who desire to know God can better understand the God of the Word.

Proverbs 9:10 “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.”

A person can make a living without knowing many things; this person just needs to know some things.  But, no one can make a satisfying life without knowing God. God is the ONE who fills the empty places in life with love and helps us to hold tightly to the things that bring meaning to us. Otherwise, we would cast aside the riches of heaven for the temporary pleasures of this world.  To know true satisfaction in our lives is to be able to appropriate the riches of heaven, in Christ, while living in this world.  It’s a miraculous process and only God can provide it.

John 10:10 Jesus said, “The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy.  My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.”

Please come and join in our Wednesday Night Worship/Bible Study opportunity.  We meet at C2C Church each Wednesday @ 7:00PM (9398 Oakhurst Road, Seminole).  Bring your Bible and come prepared to worship the Lord in music and in Word.   We are looking for answers and Jesus is the Way, Truth and Life for believers.



Lenten Devotional 2015


Forty days may seem like a long time, but compared to eternity it is a vapor. Make a decision today to get quiet before God; invite the Most High into your stillness by opening your heart to His Word each day.  Allow the Spirit to guide you into all Truth.

From Ash Wednesday to Easter, Connect2Christ Church will provide a daily devotional to move us closer toward God.  Reflect on how the Scripture is relevant to your life of faith.  Pray and allow the Word to wash you with revelation so you can enjoy greater fellowship with God in Christ.

Devotions include excerpts from Interruptions by Jacob Armstrong.  Upper Room Books.

What We Teach at C2Christ Church

{tab What We Teach}

Christianity Is About Getting into Agreement with God.

What We Teach at C2Christ ChurchWe teach God’s story that is spiritually revealed in the Bible.  We believe we are ordinary people who know, love, and serve an extraordinary God.  

The Beginning: The Story of God and Humanity– A Divine mission.

Our triune God–Father, Son, and Holy Spirit–is the Creator of all things and has ultimate authority. We were made in the image of God to live in harmony with the Creator and His plans for the creation; that we would all live for God’s glory. (Genesis 1:1, 26-28, 31)

The Blunder: Mankind Sins Against God’s Plan and Mission

Mankind sinned against God’s authority–God’s way of living–and was separated from living in the presence of God and cooperating in His mission. We needed a Savior–our Bridge to Life and Fellowship with God; a new connection with direction and purpose. (Romans 3:23)

The Bridge: Jesus Christ brings Connection and Correction for the Mission.

Jesus Christ is the sinless Son of God; fully divine and fully human. Christ paid the price for humanity’s sin against God by dying on the cross. Jesus died, was buried and rose again. He is now seated with God in heaven until he is sent to gather the believers. Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to guide every believer. We can now fulfill our purpose, through partnership with the Spirit, for God’s mission. (John 3:16)

The Business:  The Holy Spirit Gives Energy and Guidance to finish God’s Mission.

The Holy Spirit is our Power for Living.  When a person believes in the work of Jesus Christ as Savior, the Holy spirit comes to live with him or her.  It is the work of the Spirit to bring and manifest truth.  We witness to the truth of God’s love for us and for others.  The Spirit teaches and helps us to mirror the holiness of Christ–love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, kindness, gentleness, thoughtfulness, and self control–as we live out God’s mission to lovingly connect with humanity worldwide. (Acts 1:8)

Welcome to Connect2Christ Church

Pastor Mary from C2Christ ChurchAs the pastor of Connect2Christ Church in Seminole, Florida, let me be the first to welcome you!  I am so happy you have taken the time to visit our website.

At Connect2Christ in Seminole, we believe life was created to be lived in connection to God through Jesus Christ–our Bridge.  Therefore, this church is a warm and welcoming place where you can explore and grow in your relationship with God. Ask the hard questions.  If we are going to grow spiritually, we must gather wisdom by nurturing our connection with God, as well as establish new connections with members of God’s family to gain insight from their spiritual experiences.

The call of God on my life is to serve as a spiritual guide; to help you connect and fulfill God’s unique plan for you!

It seems we are always hearing about ways to connect to God.  The Bible reminds us, however, that we can only gain connection to God through Jesus Christ; God’s Son.  As we connect to Christ, we can then begin an authentic journey of discovery and learning; begin to understand the heart and ways of our Creator.  Life can be challenging and difficult at times; we have questions.  God has the answers.  I want to know the truth from my Maker.  Don’t you?

We are all learning together–in connection.  If you do not know Christ, have only known Christ a short while, or have been a follower of Christ for years and years you will still find the Holy Spirit calling you to embrace change and growth.  Meeting together with God’s family is a wonderful gift for this learning and growth experience.  So come and connect! 

Rev. Mary L. Haley, M.Div.

{tab Our Core Beliefs}

Our Core Beliefs at C2Christ ChurchThe Church Is To Foster The Worship Of God and His Mission to the World Connect2Christ Church focuses on two things that permeate everything Scripture teaches about the followers of Christ: Worship and Mission.  Worship is our way to exalt and honor the authority of God; we call it the fear of the Lord but it is really about respecting our Creator and how He created us to live.

In worship, revelation of God’s love heals, restores, and influences our souls (mind, will, emotions). Worship changes our perspective and motives; we are invited to connect and become a community of Christ followers.

We know we are loved and adored by Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; we chose to love one another based on the common ground experience that God is love.   A sense of peace and well-being comes to the worshiper. Worship is essential, because authentic Mission flows out of it. 

Mission is when we choose to become Christ’s hands and feet to a world who may not recognize God as love. We want others to know this extraordinary and Living God who fills and permeates our being.  The world is filled with hurting, broken, and needy people who could benefit from an encounter with unfailing love and endless mercy.  Mission is not about judgment, it is about loving others in God’s direction.



Ministries of C2C Church

Connect2Christ Church offers many creative ministry opportunities. Ministry is very personal and powerful; a place for each person to share how God’s love has changed his or her life.  We seek to grow and create more ministry opportunities for God’s family each year.  Ministry is what helps believers “grow up into Christ” and become the mature community who goes out into the world and lives the Gospel (Ephesians 4:15). Followers of Jesus Christ are passionate and joy-filled ministers of the gospel–sharing the Good News of God’s love for everyone.
