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!

A Temporary Normal

Like many others in the last few weeks Cedar City Church has had to discover a new, temporary, normal. In many ways, the shifts that have happened since the coronavirus pandemic have helped us to focus on what it really means to be the church. God’s church is not now, nor has it ever been, confined to a building. It is made up of people, whether those people are in the same room, across the city or across the nation. Thanks to modern technology we can still gather virtually to pray, worship, discuss God’s word and do life together.

For the foreseeable future, here are some regular times throughout the week that we will be “gathering” online as a church body. Whether you are a regular part of Cedar City Church or have yet to visit, you are invited to join us!

Cedar City Church & the coronavirus

Hey CCC family!

By now, we’ve all read about and heard many church’s stances on the coronavirus (COVID-19)… some churches are either having online services only or not gathering at all. And there are a few (even in Lebanon) that are keeping business as usual with some precautionary measures in place.

There is somewhat of a balance to strike when it comes to how people may view this pandemic. There is one side that might be prone to panic and live in fear. By God’s grace, this will not be CCC. We serve a Sovereign God who commands us to “fear not.” Why? Because “He is with us.” We serve a Risen Savior who is holding all things together. We can surely trust God, walk in faith, and find our peace in Him today and everyday.

On the other side are people who think they are Iron Man and who may be prone to be insensitive, brush this off as nothing, or even cast stones for the decisions some will make in the next few weeks. That will not be CCC either. We are compassionate people who are sent to engage our neighbors with humility and with the gospel. 

CCC will continue to follow Jesus, love others and make disciples during this time of uncertainty. Some things may change for a short period of time, but the mission stays the same. We are a church that has two rhythms: gathering and scattering. We might be doing a little bit more scattering over the next few weeks, but we are still God’s Church and we are still Cedar City Church.
