First impressions are critical to any church. The condition of the parking lot, the cleanliness of the entryway, the aroma of the foyer, and whether or not you’re greeted with a smile all speak to you and make you want to be there or not. We’re looking for people to help with these things, as well as door greeters. If you’ve been attending C3 for a while and are ready to make a positive First Impression
We love babies! Nursery is open to infants and toddlers up to the 3rd birthday on Sunday mornings at 9:45. Caregivers have completed background checks and undergo occasional training. Nursing mothers are welcome to use our private nursing area in the nursery, which has recently been moved and renovated our growing number of babies and pregnant mommies.
Every Sunday morning we take time to worship our great God in music and singing. This is a large part of our Sunday service. You’ll find our style to be considered "contemporary" as we worship with a worship band. At C3 we’ve been blessed with talented musicians on electric and acoustic guitars, drums, keyboard, bass, and more, as well as very good vocalists that lead us in worship to God. We hope you’ll enjoy celebrating God and His work in our lives!
Jesus made it clear in Matthew 28:19-20 and Acts 1:8 that one of His chief desires for the church was to spread the good news of the cross, the empty tomb, and the power of the Holy Spirit for daily living and spreading His word to the world. Missions are a huge part of that. As a church, C3 makes an annual pledge to support missions through the giving of those that attend.
Momentum Women’s purpose is to walk in freedom, build each other up, and advance God’s Kingdom. C3 Women's Ministry meets at various times of the year and is open to all adult and teen ladies. It’s a place where women feel safe to share, recharge their batteries, and grow in faith and community.
We believe that passionate prayer must be a vital part of any church, and we’ve made that statement public here at C3. We believe that a major part of our corporate emphasis should be on prayer. Prayer moves mountains in our lives and in the life of the church as well as it brings vision of God's plan for our lives personally and corporately.
We have two prayer emphasis times:
1- All Church Prayer Sunday a.m.
2- Once a Month Prayer Emphasis night and week.
It is God's desire for men to be the leaders God has called them to be. To be the men that they long to be deep inside. Leaders by example, servants at heart, and commanders in God’s army of men; men that He’s breathing life into all over the world. C3 Men meets at various times of the year for special events. Join us if you’re ready to take who you are to the next level!
C3 Kid's Ministry
Our Kid's Ministry is our version of Children's Church. Children learn how to serve just like the adults in participating in worship and lessons at their level. Teachers utilize visuals and videos to teach and keep the children interested. Our teachers are trained and able to teach lessons that are relevant and spiritually educating.
Children's ministry is a large focus of C3!
Our Team Leaders meet regularly to discuss the implemenation of ministries of the church/planning. Team Leaders are appointed by the pastor.
Pastor & Board Leadership
Pastor & Board meet monthly to discuss both the business & ministries of the church. Members of the Board must meet requirements for board membership, and are chosen by lot.
