What to expect
Planning a visit? Wonderful! You’ll find loving, Christ-centered, culturally-diverse fellowship in a casual and comfortable environment. Everyone is genuinely welcomed, and we do our best to make you feel at home while you’re here. Before and immediately after the Sunday and Wednesday services we enjoy hanging out in the Fellowship area, where free coffee is available. You can also purchase specialty coffee drinks, sodas, and sometimes tasty food items in our Fishers of Men Café. And when you do, you’ll not only enjoy something yummy, you’ll be helping to support our FoM mission ministries.
Here are some things you might like to know before your visit:
Here’s what you can expect at a typical Sunday morning or Wednesday evening service.
To prepare our hearts for the teaching of God’s Word, we begin every service with a time of worship that includes both contemporary Christian music and traditional hymns. To get an feel for the music we use in our worship time, check out our Worship section and hear from Brian Moreno, our Worship Director.
After worship, we settle in for a time of teaching. Rather than topic-based messages, ours is a teaching ministry, studying the entire Word of God, chapter-by-chapter and verse-by-verse, and making practical application for our daily lives.
We don’t pass an offering plate or basket. Instead, you’ll find agape boxes placed conveniently in the auditorium where tithes, offerings, prayer requests, and contact information can be placed.
Worship is an integral part of all we do at CCG. Worship includes the music we sing, but it’s more than that. It also involves an attitude of thankfulness and praise to our God and Savior for all He has done and all that He is. Listen to our Worship Director, Brian Moreno’s, thoughts about worship and how it impacts each of us. Also, we’ve included here a recording of one of our morning worship times to give you an idea of what to expect when you visit.
On the first Sunday and third Wednesday of the month, we commemorate the broken body and shed blood of Jesus, and we celebrate their significance in our lives. We believe that communion is not necessary for salvation, but we acknowledge it as a practice of believers as commanded by Jesus. Our communion is open, which means any adult who has trusted in the finished work of Christ on the cross for the forgiveness of their own personal sins is welcome to join us.
We consider it a privilege to care for your children while you attend services on Sunday or Wednesday. All of our workers are carefully screened and thoroughly trained to be sure we are providing the best possible care for your children. We strive to present God’s Word at their level of understanding in ways that are engaging and exciting for kids. See Kids @ CCG to learn more about how we minister to your children.
