Matthew 28:19-20 – Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.
The fourth pillar of our mission at Concord Community Church of the Nazarene is “Reaching” to the local and global communities with the love and gospel of Jesus Christ. We aim to accomplish this with three primary initiatives.
The first of such efforts is International Missions – Through World Evangelism, Alabaster, Faith Promise, and Operation Christmas Child, we as a church financially support the cause of international missions to help reach the world for Christ. In addition, various work and witness/evangelistic projects are organized in many world areas for individuals and groups of all ages.
The second area of “Reaching” focus for CCC is Compassionate Ministries. We are involved in a number of ongoing local programs here in our area, including the Women’s Hope Center, the Music City Mission, and varied disaster relief efforts. We provide financial assistance and continual volunteer help for these programs throughout the year on a regular basis.
The third “Reaching” effort at CCC targets Community Involvement. Our church leadership and many lay volunteers are actively involved within the surrounding middle Tennessee communities of Nolensville, Brentwood, Smyrna, LaVergne and Franklin by providing volunteer help for various annual civic events, as well as serving in the Williamson County Chamber of Commerce, and a number of other civic and charitable organizations.
In addition, an annual Fall Festival is a centerpiece on our church calendar every year. This “family-friendly” event is filled with a variety of activities for all ages such as music, inflatables, carnival games, bonfires, food from community vendors and much more.
In partnership with Concord Kidz Ministries, an annual Easter Breakfast, Egg Hunt and activities for the kids is hosted on our campus. Moreover, an Upward Soccer league for children is scheduled to begin in early 2010, in effort to reach others with the gospel through sports.
“Helping Hands” projects are an ongoing way that we provide assistance to those in need through a variety of practical services including minor home repairs, yard maintenance, moving assistance, house cleaning, and other tasks.
Please consider being a part of one of these areas as we press forward to show our community and our world the love of Christ through action and compassion.
