I've attended CCC for around 3 years now. I've literally had commitments each time a membership weekend has occured for the past few years-- it pretty much turned into a joke everytime Matt announced the next membership opportunity. Nevertheless, I've finally gotten to join, and I couldn't be happier. Maybe God just wanted to teach me something about perseverance!
Coming into college, I wanted to be a part of a church that was authentic, Gospel-centered, and others focused. I heard about CCC through word of mouth (the Christian community on the UGA campus is surprisingly small) and first attended my freshmen year of college. Everything about the service seemed to radiate the majesty of Christ and to make much of his name. Though it took me a few months to fully commit to regularly attending, deep down I knew this was the church I wanted to call home.
Church is not about a nice and organized service to attend once a week or a gathering to fulfill social needs. The church is God's beloved instrument to display his glory and worth to a lost world. While CCC is not perfect, I do believe we are a family who is seeking to make much of Jesus. This is ultimately why I joined. I'm excited to see where the LORD guides us in the days ahead as we-- by God's grace-- continue to take steps to "do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with God" (Micah 6:8).
