What is a real man and what defines manliness? Is it in big, loud pickup trucks? Is it in knowing how to field dress a deer? Or, does manliness defined by something different—something deeper? We invite men of all ages to join us in learning how to live the life of an authentic man as modeled by Jesus Christ and directed by the Word of God.
The Gospel of John
Facilitator: Glenn Pratt & Jeff Hoskinson
Wednesdays at 6PM, CEC 102
Ninety percent of the Fourth Gospel—the Gospel of John—is unique in comparison to the other three gospel accounts. One commentator calls John the “maverick” Gospel, an appropriate designation for this unique book. In John, Jesus’ teaching focuses much more on his own identity and his unique relationship with the Father. Jesus is the eternal Son who has come to reveal the Father. Salvation comes by knowing the Father through the Son. We hope you will join us as we study this unique and beautiful message about God the Son incarnate who has come to redeem God’s people and renew the world.

Each Friday morning at 7:00AM a group of men gather together in the CCC Fellowship Hall to spend time in the word and prayer. This is an open group and any male who would like to join is invited to come and pray with us. We believe in the power of prayer, and we believe that the only thing Christians have to offer the world that's of any lasting value is the word of God and prayer. So come join us on Friday mornings and let's ask our great God to move in our city.
In Luke 4, Jesus claims to have come with the mission of inaugurating the kingdom of God. He didn't come as a warrior, though that's what many people were expecting from the Messiah. He came as a servant to the outcast, the sinner, and even prisoners. He reads from a portion of Isaiah in the synagogue that says, "The spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor (Luke 4:18-19, cf. Isaiah 61)."
We believe that the mission of the church is an extension of and in service to the mission of Jesus. We recognize that we cannot redeem anyone, but that we can point them to the redeemer. Every Sunday afternoon we send a couple of teams to the local juvenile detention center to preach the Gospel and point them to Jesus.
