From the Pastor

The FIRST FOLLOWERS OF JESUS- took HIS BRAND and HIS LABELS soooooo seriously… that they literally transformed their day and age! (Matter of fact…) If you were to go to ROME today… (The Birthplace of Early Christianity!) you would see/find CROSSES… just about ANYWHERE and EVERYWHERE you look! (But…) Being a JESUS FOLLOWER back then was ANYTHING but EASY… IT CAME WITH A HEFTY PRICE! (And if I’m being honest with you all right now…) The PRICE those Early Followers PAID… I’m not completely convinced… that WE (CHRISTIANS) TODAY really Truly/Genuinely Understand it… (Or…) Might Be Willing To PAY Ourselves!? Consider joining us This Week at COC as we look a little closer at THAT PRICE and then share with you HOW-WE (COC) are trying to implement that type of VISION and SACRIFICE into WHAT WE DO here at COC! It’s gonna be a Great Week so Don’t Miss It!


(Remember… Only One Service This Week – 9A!)



Sunday Snapshot… (1) GATHER.GROW.GIVE.GO


Matthew 5:13-14a...You are the SALT of the earth. You are the LIGHT of the world...


COC is a place where we GATHER...(Hebrews 10:24-25) Think of ways to encourage one another to outbursts of love and good deeds. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage and warn each other, especially now that the day of his coming back again is drawing near.


COC is a place where we GROW...We accomplish that through PRAYER (Philippians 4:6-7) and TEACHING (Hebrews 4:12)


COC is a place where we GIVE...We believe when it comes to our GIVING (Time/Talents/Treasures) that IT’S NOT WHAT GOD WANTS "FROM" YOU… IT’S WHAT HE WANTS "FOR" YOU!


COC is a place where we GO...We believe that God has not SUGGESTED we GO- but He has COMMANDED that we GO! (Matthew 28:18-20 / Acts 1:8)


Are you “BOTHERED” that PEOPLE AROUND YOU are LOST and WITHOUT CHRIST?(If you are...) Then remember that YOU have been CALLED to be SALT and LIGHT to them!



See You Sunday Celebrators… (One Service Only This Week - 9:00A)


RunTheRace! (Heb 12:1-2)
