Thanks so much for your interest in what God is doing in our community. We’ve continue to see God’s faithfulness demonstrated in Shelbyville through the lives of the people within Christ Community Church. Good times! CCC has a missional passion to share Jesus with people – one person at a time…To love God, people, and community…God brought us together around the idea of “going outside:”
“So let’s go outside, where Jesus is, where the action is—not trying to be privileged insiders, but taking our share in the abuse of Jesus. This “insider world” is not our home. We have our eyes peeled for the City about to come. Let’s take our place outside with Jesus, no longer pouring out the sacrificial blood of animals but pouring out sacrificial praises from our lips to God in Jesus’ name.” Hebrews 13:13-15
On October 13, 2013 we focused our worship time on celebrating the new space/location for our church in Governors Square – The space will be rent-free! Although much of the existing 13,000sf of space worked well for our use, we needed to demo/improve some areas for new restrooms, the proposed worship & children’s space, etc. Our heart was to not borrow money or have a continual campaign hanging over our folks; we felt like this could hinder the mission of our church to invest in local ministries & stay on the gospel centered vision we shared together. That’s why we named the event: “One Day.” In faith, we thought we’d try to raise this money before starting the work – We were very blessed to see God provide about $79,000 in cash. Such a huge start!
