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

A Culture of Prayer

As I prayed in 2018 for God’s direction for the next decade of our church, I felt impressed our church family should emphasize particular areas of development. I submitted this to the Elders, and they agreed with these focuses:
–   Mature Believers
–   Culture of Prayer
             –   Leadership Development
We still have a long way to go in all of these points of emphasis, but the Lord is helping us!   As we help create and nurture a culture of prayer, here are some opportunities I want to inform and remind you about.
Special Prayer meetings coming up:
–   Ash Wednesday Service, March 6, Noon-1pm.
–   Prayer and Worship Night, Friday, March 8 at 6:30pm.
–   Maundy Thursday Service, April 18 at 6:30pm.
–   “National Day of Prayer” Worship Service, Thursday, May 2 at 6:30pm.
Weekly Prayer opportunities:
–   Intercessory prayer, Thursdays at 9:30am, “The Study” at CIL.
–   Pre-service Intercessory prayer, every Sunday, 30 minutes before each            service, “The Study” at CIL.
Please come to any portion of these weekly or special called prayer meetings that you are able to. Sometimes I feel I can only drop in a prayer meeting for a few minutes. Even that short amount of time changes my heart and makes a difference in our church family.
“…if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land (2 Chronicles 7:14).”

Special Night of Teaching with Dan Scott

In January, CIL focused on the activity of the Holy Spirit in our community. Our Holy Spirit seminars led us to be filled anew, with some people experiencing His presence for the first time. At our Next Gen Leaders Retreat, the power of the Holy Spirit filled us again with love, power, and peace. We have felt this overflow in the congregation through anointed services on Sunday mornings. This emphasis will continue. We always need the Holy Spirit.
In February we will have an opportunity to explore the sacramental stream of our faith. As a Three Streams church, we want to receive all God has for us through the liturgical, evangelical, and charismatic traditions.


On Tuesday, February 19, Pastor Dan Scott will be coming to CIL to teach a Liturgical Seminar in anticipation of Lent. For those interested in this sacramental perspective, you will receive incredible teaching from one of the forerunners of the Three Streams movement. Pastor Dan is the senior pastor of Christ Church in Nashville, and a bishop with the Anglican Mission in America (AMiA).
Make plans to join us on February 19 at 6:30pm. CIL will be providing on-site childcare!
Let’s continue to pursue the Lord together!
