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

August 10, 2018

Serving CIL since 2008 has been the greatest privilege of my life. God has placed Beth and I in community with some of the finest people imaginable.
Together, we are a healthy, Christ-honoring local church!  Thanks be to God!
This Sunday, I want us to thank God for what He has done through CIL as we anticipate great opportunities in the future.  This Sunday will be a great week for old friends to return, as well as an opportunity to invite new people to join us.  I want us all to experience the love of Christ through the people of CIL.
Please join me at either 9am or 10:45am, and bring someone with you!
Also, we have a new order of CIL Ten Year Celebration shirts that you can purchase for $10.  Get one of these shirts on Sunday to commemorate this great milestone!

I am happy to announce that Josh Sakis will be joining the CIL staff in September as our new student pastor.  Josh and his wife Booke have been in vocational ministry for the last three years in Florida, and are excited to bring their newborn son Krew to Tennessee.

Josh is a pastor’s son who is passionate about the local church.  The Sakis’ are both alumni of Southeastern University (Florida), where Josh earned a B.S. in Church Ministries.

This is how Josh describes his ministry:


I am a highly relational individual. I love to have fun with the people I do ministry with… God has given me a passion to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ unashamedly. Ministry excites me and it is my desire to reach every person I possibly can with the transforming love of Jesus Christ.”

Please pray for Josh and Brooke as they prepare to move to our area in mid-September.  They are leaving behind family, a great church, and many other opportunities in Florida to serve our congregation.


 I believe the Sakis family will be an important part of CIL’s future and I am thrilled to have them on our team!

In 2008 there were 2 congregations of believers in Sumner County trusting God to provide direction for their futures. He brought the leaders together, and the subsequent meetings made clear that these like-minded, committed groups would be stronger together. Individuals in both groups made sacrifices and worked hard to make the merge successful, believing that God would work through this new church to touch our community. We decided together that we would exist to ‘Know His Love, Share His Love.’
We’re celebrating 10 years as CIL on Sunday, August 12th! 
We’ll welcome some special guests who played important roles in our history: Dr. Charles Gaulden, Pastor David Huff, and worship leader Jonathan Lee.
You are CIL today, and we hope you’ll be here as we celebrate.
Please make plans to be in either our 9am or 10:45am service.
