Vision & Values

A ‘vision’ is seeing the invisible and making it visible. It’s a God-inspired understanding of a different future. Simply put, our vision is Jesus.

Vision

Building a Community (Acts 2:42)

  • We gather in community to encounter the mystery and story of God. We spend time in worship and conversation regarding how our lives can find meaning and hope in connection with God and others.

Changing a City (Matthew 9:35-38)

  • When this kind of community permeates the city, it can only bring change.

Reaching a Country and World (Matthew 28:18-20)

  • When a city is changed, an entire nation and world can be reached.

  • Psalm 12:6

  • Become a Member

    Everything at CCC flows best through relationships. Connecting to a Community Group is the first step for just about everything, and it’s the best way (but not required) to be a member of this church community.

    CCC also offers a “First Sunday Coffee” every first Sunday of the month for those “kicking the tires” at CCC. This informal gathering provides those interested in learning more about CCC an opportunity to meet some of the pastoral leadership, get an overview of the CCC vision, and ask questions.

    One other opportunity is offered in the Spring and the Fall; it is called “Discovery” and is a lunch gathering whereby folks can meet more of the pastoral leadership A packet is provided that includes additional information about CCC, its vision, and its ministries. An open forum is offered for attendees to ask questions and have deeper discussion with the leadership. From there, individuals can determine if God wants them to be part of the CCC family.

    Please contact the CCC Admin Office at admin@cypresscreekchurch.com regarding “First Sunday Coffee” or “Discovery”.
