Will You Bless a Family for Thanksgiving?

Saturday, November 17 is our Thanksgiving Blessing!
Our goal is to give away 185 fresh turkeys and all the ingredients for a family Thanksgiving meal for local families. Your gift of $25 will completely fund Thanksgiving dinner for someone who might be unable to provide that special meal without help.
Will you take time to donate right now so we can fund all 185 meals?
The assembly team will gather on Friday evening, November 16 at 6:30pm to prepare the bags.
Volunteer sign-in on Saturday morning is at 8:30, with the give-away beginning at 9a.m. in the parking lot at the Goodwill Store on New Shackle Island Road.
If you want to volunteer for Friday night packing or Saturday morning distribution, contact Gala Johnson at 615-440-6127.
I love serving Jesus with you!


On Sunday, November 11, we will do a water baptism in both services! If you are interested, register by clicking below:

What Does the Church Offer the World?

I believe in the local church!
I believe the local church is the hope of the world.
When healthy, nothing can bring value to humanity, positively impact culture, and promote genuine love like the local church.
This Sunday I will continue the series The Church with a message titled, “What does the church offer the world?”   Someone you know has not been to church in a long time. Will you invite them to CIL this Sunday? Nothing impacts our church as much as when you invite friends who are disconnected from a faith community to one of our services or small groups.
We will be ready for you and your friends at 9am and 10:45am.
I cannot wait until Sunday!



A Year of Transition

It has been a year of transition at CIL.
Though change in leadership can be sad and challenging, I’ve been greatly encouraged by the spiritual climate of our church family.
We’ve had leaders called away, and we’ve had others change roles.
We’ve had people step up into leadership and fill in gaps during the liminal space. (Thanks for that sermon, Pastor Deborah).
For the first time in our church’s history we’ve had a pastor move from another state just for us! (Thanks, Pastor Josh and Brooke!)
During all these changes, Les has faithfully been an usher, Stacy has cleaned, Gordon has been in the parking lot, Ann has kept meeting visitors, and dozens of nursery volunteers have shared Jesus with toddlers. I could go on and on and on about our Worship One, Serve One volunteers. Why? We have a great people, who serve our great God!
You are CIL!
I love serving Jesus with you!
