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

September 18, 2016

aaron 2014 - CopyHey everyone!
I am so excited about what is happening at the church right now.  We are growing every week, but there is plenty of room for everyone!  Would you help spread the word about CIL through social media, casual conversation, and personal invitation?  Your enthusiasm for what God is doing atCIL is the greatest influence for us to reach more people for Christ.
The toiletries drive for the Appalachia Mission trip at Chick-fil-a is going great! The campaign ends on Saturday, September 17.  Make sure to drop by your toothbrush/paste, soap, shampoo, deodorant, brush/comb and tie backs before the end of business at Chick-fil-a on Saturday night. Pray for our team that will minister in Lynch, Kentucky, September 22-25.
Speaking of missions, a couple of weeks ago we were able to give $6,206 to Phil Zarn’s ministry in Sweden. A miraculous Labor Day weekend offering!
We are on mission. We are getting people in community through our small groups. We are discipling the next generation through ministry to children and youth. We are introducing people to Christ through Alpha.  CIL is alive, and I am glad you are a part of it!
I love being your pastor,

Back to School Family Prayer Meeting

aaron 2014 - CopyWhen we encounter a national tragedy almost everyone – politicians, news anchors, athletes, artists – calls our nation to prayer.  Yet it is rare for people to have the mental and spiritual discipline to pray consistently regardless of circumstances.
            We have another opportunity to cultivate the habit of prayer with our Back-to-School Family Prayer Meeting this Sunday.  Aubrey McGowan will lead us in worship, and I’ll lead the prayer time. The worship will start at 5:30pm, but you can come at any time.  I anticipate we will be finished around 7pm.  We’ll have childcare through age 4.
            We are inviting students, teachers, administrators, and school staff to join us, and would love for your family to be here, too. We’re not providing food this time, but encourage you to go out with your friends afterwards for fellowship.
            Let’s prepare our students and teachers spiritually for a great school year by asking for the power, favor and blessing of God upon our community.
I love being your Pastor,
