At CCC, we are trying to break out of our walls. We are doing our best to BE the church instead of just going to church. The serving component is huge to us. We want to make a difference in our world. These days, we’re just not interested in building our little Cumberland empire. In fact, we often wonder about the possibility of giving ourselves so completely away in service and mission that we wouldn’t exist in 10 years! Imagine what God could do with that kind of posture?
Our honest goal is to do four things very well: 1) love people one at a time; 2) feed people the Word of God; 3) connect people to God through prayer & worship; and 4) motivate people to serve. Everything we do centers around these four principals (or pistons) which, by the way, drove the engine of the first-century church found in the New Testament book of Acts.
If you decide to walk through our doors, you’ll find people doing their best to love and be loved. You’ll hear great, passionate music. Your kids and teens will be welcomed with obvious enthusiasm. Your wallet won’t become a target. You’ll be pointed to, in practical/challenging ways, the incredible Word of God. Hopefully you’ll connect with Jesus in a way that prods you to BE the church come Monday morning.
Let me know what you think. I would appreciate and value an email from you.
