Vain are all divine purposes of loveand the redemption wrought by Jesusexcept thou work within,regenerating by thy power,giving me eyes to see Jesus,showing me the realities of the unseen world. Give me thyself without measure,as an unimpaired fountain,as inexhaustible riches. I bewail my coldness, poverty, emptiness,Imperfect ... Keep Reading

Discovering Beauty

August 22, 2014 | by: Caleb Wilkie |0 Comments

This summer, I rediscovered the hobby of my youth: drawing.For much of my leisure when I was a boy, my face would be hovering all too close to the paper, carefully observing the stroke of the graphite, obsessed with obtaining the perfect line and image. School has been a real pain for art. Summer classes, however, have allowed me some freedom to explore that wonderful medium in new ways. It’s a funny thing about art in that it is the constant pursui... Keep Reading

Why Should We Prepare for the Lord’s Supper?

August 14, 2014 | by: Rick Hawkes |0 Comments

1 Cor 11:27-30: Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty concerning the body and blood of the Lord. Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself. That is why many of you are weak and ill, and some have died. Westminster Larger CatechismQ171 How are they th... Keep Reading

More than Verbal Assent

July 31, 2014 | by: Peter Brinkerhoff |0 Comments

A couple weeks ago, a friend said to me: “Instead of asking yourself ‘what do I believe about Jesus?’ – ask yourself: ‘what does my life say about what I believe about Jesus?’ Only when you answer that question truthfully will you know what you actually believe.” Yes, I realize that loving a friend sometimes requires telling the cold, hard truth, but this question was jarring. No cop-outs here. My life does reveal... Keep Reading

Considering the Lilies

July 10, 2014 | by: Kelli Allen |0 Comments

A very smart person once said that objects in motion tend to stay in motion. I can attest to that truth in the context of my task-oriented mind. My brain seems to engage in planning mode before my feet hit the floor in the morning and can easily continue on that track until my feet are back in the bed at night. I feel at home with Scriptures about productive ants (Prov. 30:25), but considering the lilies (Luke 12:27) makes me a bit uncomfortable. In our g... Keep Reading

Join the Parade!

July 3, 2014 | by: Brian Ellison |0 Comments

The town of Pawleys Island in South Carolina has a wonderful 4th of July tradition. For 48 years, this seaside community has put on one of the most remarkable Independence Day parades you will ever see – a hodgepodge of cars of all makes and models decked out in red, white and blue regalia. Pick-up trucks and trailers filled with surfers and other beachcombers. Bicycles with streamers ridden by young and old all dressed up in American-styled finery.... Keep Reading

“How Shall We Then Speak?”

June 26, 2014 | by: Pastor Greg Norfleet |0 Comments

Gotta moment for something different? Typically, this space is dedicated to giving a thoughtful, biblical perspective on an important issue facing members and friends of Christ Community Church. But Cindy and I got such a kick out of the following that I thought you might enjoy it, too; it’s written by someone living in the United Kingdom, and was relayed to us this week by a friend: “The European Union (EU) has just announced an agreement whe...

Pray-Bring-Share

What's the first word that pops in your head when you're reminded of your calling to share the gospel with those in our community? Terrifying? Intimidating? Unprepared? What would be helpful to overcome these feelings? The Local Outreach Team (LOT) has been giving this some thought and wants to help us as a church grow in engaging our community with the gospel (Mt28:19-20). This Fall the LOT will be encouraging every CCC member to use a simple strategy to... Keep Reading
