A Silver Lining : Tony
Cracks in Tony’s marriage are magnified during the lockdown. Communication lost through years of neglect and a busy city lifestyle have slid to a point of ‘irreconcilable differences’. But while Jane sees their differences as a reason to leave, Tony sees a silver lining – that knowing each other’s differences is a good place to begin rebuilding and repair. We drift away unintentionally but draw near intentionally. God is for marriage and values it.

A Silver Lining: Josh, Xixi, Yvonne
A lighthearted glimpse into when time came to a standstill. During the lockdown, all busyness, packed schedules, and plans vanished. Days of the week went into a blur. Uncertainty for the future was felt by all. In the midst, we had time to think about things that really matter. To surrender things that are out of our control, and to trust in God’s goodness.

When the Circuit Breaker forces all building and construction work to cease, Jasper’s home renovation plans go down the pipelines.

CSCC Christmas Production 2017 :: Snowglobed
Life is like a snowglobe. A pretty little glass ornament that houses a perfect world. Carefully-crafted and protected in a transparent dome for all to admire; reminiscent of our picture-perfect lives. But what happens when our snowglobes get shaken up or turned upside down?
CSCC Christmas Production 2018 :: My Grand Father's House
Every family is different, but the one thing they all have in common, is trouble. My Grand Father’s House is a winsome dramedy about the ups and downs of family life in our small city. A grandfather copes with aging, living alone and with his past. His grown son carries work as a burden and obligation. A rebellious teenage son is absorbed in gaming, while his little sister is not too young to share the gospel. Moms come in all shapes and sizes. See how a Filipino helper makes her mark in family life and how a hopeful mother’s prayers are answered. If God’s heart of reconciliation is enough to restore mankind unto Himself, surely it is enough to restore our closest human relationships as well.
