December 1, 2016





We are already planning for our 2017 Costa Rica Mission Trip. This will be the fifth year in a row a team from CIL will be going to the Carpia area near San Jose, CR, where poverty and limited opportunities have negatively effected generations.

Our team will be there again July 1-8, 2017, connecting with the Costa Rican people and conducting a VBS.  If you want to learn about this amazing opportunity, Tommy Hollinden and Syd Shaw will be conducting an informational meeting this Sunday (December 4) at 10:10 a.m. in the “Living Room” at CIL. Join us and learn the details of this life-changing trip. If you are even slightly interested in this trip, we encourage you to attend this information meeting and discover what a great opportunity this is for you!

If you want more information between now and Sunday’s meeting, feel free to contact Tommy Hollinden by text of phone at 615-554-2287

advent-cilred-002ADVENT, a word with Latin roots, means “coming.”   Advent designates a period before Christmas when Christians prepare for the celebration of Jesus’ birth. This practice began in the church over sixteen hundred years ago! Sermons focused on the wonder of the Incarnation. By the Middle Ages four Sundays had become the standard length of the Advent season. Since then, Advent has been considered the beginning of the church year. This Sunday at CIL we begin our fifth year anticipating the celebration of Christmas by preparing our hearts through the season of Advent.

Here are our themes:

November 27              Anticipate

December 4                Prepare

December 11              Rejoice

December 18              Adore


These themes will prepare us for a Jesus-centered Christmas!  We will gather on Christmas Eve at 3pm and 4:30pm for services that welcome the Lord Jesus fully into our lives and church.

After enjoying Thanksgiving, let’s gather this Sunday in anticipation of what God is going to do. We’d love to meet your visiting family, and believe God’s Word will speak to them, as well as to us, as I preach from Romans 13:1-14. . It will be a blessing to enjoy a Family Sunday together.
