A non-denominational church in Hendersonville, TN // Sundays 9AM & 10:45AM //

We all need Christian Community



People may stay a month at CIL because of an excellent service.

They may stay a year for a great program.

But, people stay at CIL a lifetime for a friend.

Relationships are irreplaceable.

As we get bigger, CIL must get smaller though smaller groups.

242 Groups are our small groups, and the primary way adults connect relationally.

We’d love to have you join us Sunday, August 25th for good food, a conversation about the morning’s sermon, and prayer. Pick up a group listing from the communication counter, double-check the start time for the group you’re interested in, and plan to be there. Childcare through 5th grade is provided at CIL from 4:45 until 6:45.

Friendships take investment and repetition.  Devote yourself to Christian community.



August Surge


Hello CIL Family!



Thank you for your generosity that has made our 12th annual Back-to-School Blessing possible. I am so thankful for the leadership of Gala Johnson, who works so hard to make this outreach possible. We will pack the bags Friday at 6:00pm, and distribute them on Saturday at the parking lot of Dollar General Market on New Shackle Island Rd (volunteer check-in is at 8:00am).

The month of August is special at CIL. With the school year starting, we usually surge in attendance and enthusiasm.  August is a great time to invite people who do not often attend church to try out CIL. Be thinking and praying about who in your life needs to experience Jesus through the CIL family.

I do not want you to hear the opinions of man; I desire for God’s Word to be a healing, encouraging, guiding source for your life. I pray God’s heart for you comes through my messages. We have experienced collective awareness of the Spirit’s activity in our worship music, and at the end of my messages. We cannot make this happen, but we can ask for His presence. So, let’s pray, “Come Holy Spirit!”

I love serving Jesus with you!



Appalachia Mission Trip – September 19-22


Hello, CIL Family!
The CIL Appalachian Mission Trip is quickly approaching and there is still time to join the team! Read below for more info…



The Appalachia Mission Trip will take place September 19-22. The team will go to Harlan County, Kentucky and work alongside a ministry serving the second poorest county in the nation. This is a true blessing not only for the community in Kentucky, but for us as well. This trip is full of opportunities to see God move and to be the hands and feet of Jesus. This is a great time for individuals, married couples, or families to get involved.
