Three Reasons Why I Love Nursery Service

October 1, 2015 | by: Kathryn Eriksen |0 Comments

One of my favorite parts of being a member at Christ Community is the fact that everyone serves in the Children’s Ministry. I joined CCC when Rusty and I didn’t have any kids and it was one of the first things that drew me to the church. I remember holding Kate, now a first grader, when she couldn’t even hold her own head up, and the memory makes me smile every time I see her worshiping the Lord in church beside me. Here are three reasons... Keep Reading

Erin Berg is a CCC member serving children with disabilities with Mission to the World in Bulgaria About a year ago as I was preparing to depart for Bulgaria to share God’s love and message of grace, I was also building expectations. I knew it was happening, and I tried to fight the unrealistic ones. Together we prayed this time into the Lord’s hands, but I still anticipated certain trials, challenges, growth, and hopefully fruit. I ate the br... Keep Reading

Humans of Chapel Hill

Have you heard of Humans of New York (HONY)? It started as a blog by a 28 year old guy who decided to take photos of strangers in New York City. One of the best compliments he hears about his work is, “You photograph the things that people walk by every day and don’t notice, and you make them look beautiful”. He gives meaning and life to people who would otherwise disappear into the background. I have a difficult time transitioning from ... Keep Reading

Tendency to Self-Sufficiency in my Exhaustion

September 10, 2015 | by: Chris Welch |0 Comments

I think I’m a pretty good guy. I work at the hospital and I try to spend as much time as I can with those that I care for. I also try to encourage my co-workers as well in their work. When they need help, I chip in and help with tasks that need to be done. At home, I work around the house, cook, and take on other chores because I want to love my wife well. Sometimes I think I am doing pretty well at being a good person. I work hard, I’m nice, a... Keep Reading

”If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9 “Confession is a stripping away of protection, the telling of a truth which might once have seemed like a humiliation, become suddenly a gateway, an entrance to solid ground; even a first step home. To confess is to free oneself, not only by admitting a sin or an omission but to profess a deeper allegiance, a gr... Keep Reading

It’s a perennial l challenge. It’s one of the easiest things in the world to forget. I can be reminded of it one minute, and it flies out of my brain the next as though it was never there.I’m talking about noticing and welcoming guests at our worship service! Just this Monday, the elders were looking at one another with sheepish blank stares as we read the names of people who have been visiting. We left reminded how important it is to he... Keep Reading

A Song to Share, A Favor to Ask

August 7, 2015 | by: Pastor Greg Norfleet |0 Comments

Like many of you, I’ve enjoyed learning from members of CCC’s Music Team during Sunday School in recent weeks. Hearing the story behind some of the church’s most beloved hymns has been illuminating and refreshing, so much so that I thought I’d share a favorite hymn of mine and ask a special favor of you. The hymn? Written in 1664 by Anglican minister Samuel Crossman, “My Song Is Love Unknown” is a beautiful and profound... Keep Reading
