This Fall at C2G

Today, Dr. Troy Smith wraps up his preaching series on healing. Excerpts from his sermons are available on his YouTube channel.

Coming up on Sunday, September 16, we will be meditating or 'praying the scriptures,' with C2G's own unique version of Lectio Divina

Then on Sunday, September 23, we welcome talent from the community to share sacred songs, stories, poems, dances, jokes, what have you, with another installment of "Open Mic for the Soul." 

As always, we blend supper and the service, gathering from 5-7pm most Sundays while Tech is in session in the fellowship hall at First Presbyterian Church.

For Churches & From Our Church: A message for Upper Cumberland Pride


Come ToGather joyfully supported the first Upper Cumberland Pride on Saturday, May 5, 2012.

Embrace all persons as children of God, created in the image of God, unconditionally loved by God & of sacred worth, including yourself.

Seek out & join companions who are passionately committed to ending discrimination, offering sanctuary, & achieving equality for LGBT persons & their families.

Break the silence & challenge the conspiracy of false witness borne against LGBT persons & their families in both church & society.

Nurture a theology & practice of hospitality within your church family, ministry, &   community.

Create & foster safe, welcoming, & affirming spaces for LGBT persons, parents, &     families to come out, to live with integrity, & to tell the truth of their lives & faith stories.

Start conversations about love, sexual ethics, marriage, & faithful relationships for all   persons regardless of sexual orientation or gender.

Celebrate your life & faith journey as a gift from God & be the change you seek to make in the church & world.

Cotton Patch Gospels: Reading, Discussion, & Worship

On Sunday nights for eight weeks, from mid-January to early-March, C2G will meet to read the Cotton Patch Gospel by Clarence Jordan. 


 Then, for a few days on Spring Break week (3.7 to 3.11), we will visit the community in Georgia that Clarence Jordan founded: http://www.koinoniapartners.org/; a few spots are still available for the Georgia trip. 


 Each meeting will include potluck supper, reading, discussion, & communion. When musicians are available, they will join us too. 


 On Super Bowl Sunday (2.5.12), we will meet at a member's home for worship before the big game.
