CCI Sunday School
Sunday School is defined as the Reaching, Teaching, Winning, Maturing and Nurturing arm of the Church. Reaching is defined as making contact with a person and motivating him to give an honest hearing to the gospel. Teaching is guiding the learning activities that meet human needs. The Winning arm of the church wins people to Christ. Maturing is bringing a person to completion or making them well rounded. Sunday School is for the Nurturing of every member so that he/she carefully observes all of the Word of God.
CCI Children's Church
Children Church is an extension of Sunday School with classes for ages 4 to 9. The classes are held during morning service for the purpose of teaching younger children on their level. Children church is a well-structured program in which children are taught Biblical Scripture and topics taught by Holy Ghost filled members.
We believe and teach that God instituted marriage and it is a Holy & sacred union, where two flesh become one flesh (Mark 10:8). There’s a purpose and plan for every marriage. A Successful Marriage takes work, time, trust, attention and good communication. There must be a Vision, Plan, and Purpose set for your marriage and God has the formula. Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, lean not to thine own understanding in all thy ways acknowledge him and He shall direct they path (Proverbs 3:5-6). Our prayer is that your marriages and families will be made whole by the Word of God and you may live a victorious life as one in Christ Jesus. Experiencing the freshness and fullness of Christ in your relationships and that you would walk in unity and agreement, growing in faith.
Men of Valor/Men's Impartation
The Men’s Department or Men of Valor gather each Sunday morning starting at 9:30 AM to impart, impact, understand and fellowship with one another. We meet (via conference call) in prayer each Wednesday morning to strengthen through prayer according to Luke 22:32 “But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.” One of the best parts of what we do is removing masks and being honest and real with each other, it allows us to help each other to grow in grace. We believe that an air of transparency is paramount in making God proud of us as Men of Valor.
Women's Fellowship Department
Led by First Lady Carolyn Williams, CCI’s Women’s Fellowship meets monthly for informative and powerful workshops that minister to the total woman. Ladies are encouraged to participate, discover their gifts and talents, experience deliverance, and grow spiritually in a supportive environment. The ministry hosts Women’s Day services, Women’s Conferences, an annual book club, and stays connected to the larger vision of the ministry. Women's Ministry is a time for fellowship, a time to embrace one another in love, to encourage, to receive, to learn and be healed. Proverbs 9:13 reminds us not to be foolish women. In meeting every 2nd Saturday we allow God to fill us and empower us with His will and most importantly the word of God.
SHAPE - Singles Honoring A Perfect Example (Singles Ministry)
The word "shape" speaks to the shaping process that is essential in the life of the unwed man or woman. Whether it is spiritually, physically, financially or socially, we have to "get in shape," in order to receive God's promises. God is concerned about the whole "man or woman".
In this process, we recognize Christ, As "A Perfect Example" - If we follow His principles and submit to His purpose for our lives, He will then grant us the desires of our hearts.
VISION - The CCI Singles Ministry is a culturally diverse hub, for all unwed men and women. As a ministry, we equip and empower singles to live out a unique and purposeful time in their lives.
SLOGAN - "Living Your Best Life Now" - This motto speaks to what we believe is God's intent for the singles life. Your best is to be lived now.
