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

June 19, 2014 | by: Jeffery West |0 Comments

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

"So What's the Lord Been Teaching You These Days?"

June 12, 2014 | by: Pastor Byron Peters |0 Comments

It’s a little awkward to not really have an answer to that question. Especially if it’s because, well, “I’m really not spending any time with God right now.” Most Christians know, intellectually, that spending daily time with God in the Bible and prayer is, basically, essential. “Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.” Jesus said that in Matthew 4:4. So why is actu... Keep Reading

A Closer Look at Our Vision

June 10, 2014 | by: Pastor Greg Norfleet |0 Comments

What is the “DNA” of Christ Community Church? Lord willing, what basic ideas will be self-replicating and church-dominating? One important answer that emerged from the church’s beginning is a “double helix” or sorts: one strand that captures our sense of mission, the other our sense of vision. It’s good that we regularly keep these basic ideas before us, so here’s a fresh reminder. Our mission statement seeks to c... Keep Reading

My Reminder of Loving and Living

June 10, 2014 | by: Asia Morris |0 Comments

I came home from a ten-hour day at work--making espresso drinks, burning crepes, chopping onions, slicing strawberries, taking orders and playing waitress--exhausted. My day had started early, so there were still several hours before supper. And yet, all I could do was let my tired feet carry me from the gravel driveway and up the stairs to my room, where I crawled in bed, barely remembering to take my shoes off. My body very clearly needed sleep, but it ... Keep Reading

The Battle for Ukraine

May 15, 2014 | by: Robin Price |0 Comments

Though there has been no formal declaration, there is truly war in Ukraine. Russia has already covertly crossed over our border, while city streets in the East and South have become battlefields of civil war. The spreading violence has now reached our beloved Odessa. Provoking anger is an information war, fueled with deception and lies. The future of this country looks bleaker every moment. So, why do I want to stay in a place where fighting and danger pe...
