Good morning, and happy Sunday!
What an exciting time it is for us at Christian Community Church of Clarksville. We’ve never been more focused on our mission for Clarksville and the surrounding areas than we are right now. Sure, we’re small. That’s okay!
After all, how many people did it take to change the world? Twelve.
Yes, we’re focused. But before I start talking about our mission, I want to take a minute to apologize. I’m sorry, dear friends. I’m sorry that the church (in general, not just us) has failed to minister to so many of you who are hungry for real, genuine fellowship. I’m sorry that we’ve been hypocritical. We’re sorry for being a bunch of self-righteous, judgmental bastards. We’ve pointed fingers. We’ve gossiped. God knows that this goes on about anywhere you can imagine.
And yes, I’m lumping CCC-Clarksville in that mass group of churches. You see, we’re all part of the body of Christ. It’s not a mass collection of individual churches that we have here in Clarksville. We’re all part of the same body, the same baptism, the same faith. We have ONE Lord. Some of our brethren are quick to condemn, quick to judge, and quick to point fingers. And that affects all of us. And for that, I sincerely apologize.
This is a new day. It’s a new morning where the snow is still on the ground, and our eyes are fixed squarely on one thing: Jesus. So what is our focus? It’s simple. We are focused on loving people, giving you a Christian church home where you can grow, be loved, sit on the sidelines, or get involved. We’re all in this thing together. All we need is YOU.
No matter if you’re black or white, Hispanic or Asian, married or divorced, male or female, young or old, straight or gay, or even transgender, you’re welcome here. And if you feel like you’d not fit in to the church setting, then I have exciting news: We’re ALL misfits! I’ve said it before, friends. I have a clear vision for CCC-Clarksville. That vision is to have a church filled with misfits… misfits for JESUS. In fact, the more different you think you are, the more we want to welcome you.
For those of us who are more traditional in our worship preferences, come on down! There’s a place for you, too! We’re all different. We’re all unique. If you’d like to be a part of a truly multi-faceted fellowship, we’d love to spend time with you. Remember, our focus is on JESUS, not on what we look like or what kind of songs we sing.
With all that said, here are a few quick answers to your frequently asked questions:
- When and where do you meet?
We meet at 4:00 PM (1600 hrs) every Sunday afternoon at the Riverview Inn at 80 College Street, right here in Clarksville Tennessee.
- Do I have to dress up?
NO. Come as you are.
- What are services like?
On the first Sunday of every month, we have a traditional church service with contemporary worship music, an uplifting sermon, ministry time, and an open communion table. ALL are welcome at God’s table. Then, the rest of the month, we have a Bible study where we teach and discuss the Scriptures and their application to our lives.
- Do you have a website?
YES. Visit our website at www.ccc-clarksville.com.
- Are children welcome?
Absolutely. Our hope is to build a strong children’s ministry at CCC. Will you help?
- What if I just want to sit on the sidelines…I’ve been burned by churches in the past?
Then sit! We’d love to have you fellowship with us. Let us minister to you and show the love of God. When you’re ready, and only YOU know when that is, then we encourage you to get more involved. Church is a place for healing. Come, and let the Lord bring that healing into your life.
So there you have it. If you have further questions, I encourage you to contact me for more details. And if you’re able join us, we’d love to have you!
See you soon!
