No Gathering | Sunday, April 18, 2021

We will not be gathering as a church on Sunday, April 18, 2021. But, here is an at-home worship guide to help direct your thoughts towards the scripure this Sunday.

Song of Adoration | Great Are You Lord 

Song of Confession |  Death Was Arrested 

Song of Thanksgiving | O Praise the Name 

Message: Do Not Bear False Witness | Focal Text Exodus 20:16

Reflection Questions:

  1. Do you misrepresent Jesus by telling lies, withholding truth, or gossiping about others?
  2. What do you need to confess to Jesus today? Would you be open to talk about this with the people around you (if you are with others this morning)?
  3. How can you walk in truth this week, knowing the Holy Spirit is with you and Jesus is the epitome of truth? 

Song of Supplication |  Want to Know You 

Church Planting Sunday | Sunday, April 18, 2021

While the official Acts 29 Church Planting Sunday is Sunday, April 18th, CCC will be celebrating in our local body on Sunday, April 25th.

Cedar City Church is a church plant that is a part of a church planting network called Acts 29. A29 is a global network of churches that are serious about church planting. A29 is having the first-ever annual Church Planting Sunday on April 18, 2021 and we invite you to join us in celebrating what God is doing in CCC and church plants around the world.

Check out the Church Planting Sunday digital brochure below and keep reading for more on Acts 29 Network.

A Little About Acts 29 Network

  • Acts 29 is not a denomination; it’s a global network for churches serious about church planting. There’s an African proverb that says, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” The Acts 29 global community knows we can best bring the gospel to the ends of the earth when we do it in partnership with churches who share our passion for making disciples of all nations. Our efforts are multiplied and our God is glorified when we work together to advance his kingdom on earth. 
  • They are made up of nearly 700 member churches (and counting!) in more than 50 countries. On any given Sunday, Acts 29 members are worshiping in nearly 30 languages! 
  • They recruit, train, assess, and holistically support churches, church leaders, and church planters to plant healthy, multiplying churches. They partner with believers around the world to plant churches in all contexts—suburban, urban, rural, and everything in-between—and in any place where Jesus is neither named nor known.
  • They believe the church is God’s primary mission strategy on earth. Therefore, being faithful to the Great Commission’s call to make disciples means being passionate about church planting.
  • Local churches stand as a trusted presence in a community, offering hope and help amid trials and tragedies, proclaiming Christ and seeing lives transformed by his gospel and for his glory. As more healthy, multiplying churches are planted, Christ’s kingdom on earth is advanced. This is the beauty of church planting. 

5 Distinctives of Acts 29

  • They are passionate about gospel centrality. 
  • They enthusiastically embrace the sovereignty of God’s grace in saving sinners.
  • They recognize and rest upon the necessity of the empowering presence of the Holy Spirit for all life and ministry. 
  • They are deeply committed to the spiritual and moral equality of men and women, and to men as responsible servant-leaders in both home and church. 
  • They embrace a missionary understanding of the local church and its role as the primary means by which God chooses to establish his kingdom on earth. 

Christmas Eve Eve Gathering

So that we can provide more room for folks to social distance during our Christmas Eve Eve gathering, Liberty Heights Church Lebanon campus is graciously allowing us to use their space for the service.

So, please join us on the 23rd at 161 Miller Road in Lebanon, not at our 12 New Street location.

Cedar City Church has made it a tradition to gather on Christmas Eve Eve. This year will be no different! From 7:00-8:00pm on Wednesday, December 23rd, we’re opening our doors to you and anyone who would like to safely celebrate Christmas 2020 with the church. Or feel free to join us live on Youtube!

We know that the week of Christmas can be a crazy one, so CCC has adopted this tradition as a way to let as many people as possible gather with the church that week, while also letting them partake in their family festivities on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and the following weekend.

That said, we will not be gathering on the Sunday between Christmas and New Years. We essentially move our weekly gathering from Sunday morning to the evening of the 23rd. Feel free to worship at home or in some other way on Sunday, December 27th.

We look forward to celebrating Christmas with you!

Membership Class | Sunday, November 15, 2020

One of the markers of a healthy church is membership.  In scripture, we see people in God’s family functioning underneath the care of a particular pastor/elder or plurality of elders.  We believe church membership is vital for multiple reasons including unity, common mission, shared life together, edification, organization, church discipline and more.  

Church membership signifies that we are “in this together” and that we are committed to one another. 

We will be having our very first Membership Class on Sunday, November 15 from 5pm-7:30pm.  Pastor David will be teaching through a packet of content that you can pick up at any Sunday gathering beforehand.  If you will not be at a Sunday gathering to pick up a packet, please email Pastor David at and he will send you a digital copy. There will be a question and answer session after the teaching. We will provide dinner and drinks. Also, if you have small children (0-5 years), we will work to provide child care. If you will need childcare that evening, please send an email to Pastor David.

This class is required for those pursuing membership at Cedar City Church. However, if you would like to simply check us out and learn more about us, feel free to join us on November 15 even if you are not pursuing membership.

Mark your calendars today! 

The Gospel & Politics | Sunday, November 1, 2020

This week’s focal passage:

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul. Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable, so that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation. Be subject for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good. For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people. Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.
– 1 Peter 2:9-17

Farmers to Families

Cedar City Church will be passing out 20lb. boxes of frozen meat and dairy products starting Tuesday, Sept. 29. We will pass them out for 5 consecutive Tuesdays at Pleasant Square Park. If you or someone you know needs a box or two, feel free to stop by from 4:15-6pm. First come, first served until we run out.

Global Hunger Sunday

The COVID-19 crisis has caused a food shortage in sub-Saharan Africa, South America, Central Asia and other parts of the world. 

On October 11, Cedar City Church will be partnering with Global Hunger Relief to collect an offering that will then be donated to help combat food insecurity in the United States and across the world.

We ask that you prayerfully join us in this offering.

1 in 7 people in the world go hungry each day. CCC is joining thousands of other Southern Baptists in celebrating Global Hunger Sunday on October 11. Together, we can make a difference.

Your gifts to Global Hunger Relief will fund long-term solutions to hunger like clean water, agricultural education, job skills training, and more. Each project relieves hunger in a way that allows locals to work, produce, and sustain themselves – restoring dignity and hope in communities broken from conflict, instability, and poverty.

You can watch the video and visit to learn more about Global Hunger Relief and what they do.

Returning to Sunday Gatherings

We are pleased to announce that we are able to get back to a regular in-person gathering starting tomorrow, Sunday, August 2 at 10:30am.

We’ll begin a new series in 2 Thessalonians. It will be family style worship meaning kids will be with us upstairs. There will be activity and snack bags for kiddos (you are welcome to bring your own for your kiddos.)

We’ve made some adjustments for social distancing including extra spacing between seats, masks, strategically place hand sanitizer and a shaded outdoor socializing area. Please bring a mask and join us as we gather together to worship as the body of Christ.

We look forward to seeing you!
