Cumberland Church is Moving!

Cumberland Community Church is moving deeper and further into our community!  We are moving 8 minutes west from our current location to South Cobb & Church Street.  God has been gracious in our growth, and now we are called to turn the page to the next chapter of God’s story at Cumberland and go!

Many believe we are moving because of the Atlanta Braves invasion into Cobb County.  While the Braves certainly do afford us significant resources and may expedite our move, they are not the driving force behind our huge transition.  Here are the five reasons we are moving:

Gospel

The Gospel calls us to go

Gospel

The Gospel is always a call to go with the good news of Jesus.  As disciples, sitting, staying, and maintaining is not an option when a desperate world needs the answers the Gospel affords.  Our reality is that we are redeemed messy people pointing other messy people to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Pushed Out

People are being pushed out

Pushed Out

People are being pushed away from our current campus.  God has developed our collective heart for the poor, hurting, broken, and messy people (just like us).  We want to be where those people are.  We want to further imbed ourselves into the lives of our community.  

Culture

Big-box church is not inviting

Culture

Our culture is minimizing, if not marginalizing, the church.  It’s not that culture is fighting the church, but for many, they just don’t care. Although culture may argue our theology and beliefs, they will not be able to argue the beautiful things and good works stemming from our faith in Jesus.  (I Peter 2:12)

Visibility

We hope to be a light on a hill

Visibility

Visibility is a struggle Cumberland has lived with for years.  At our current location, nobody can physically see our campus.  We hope to be a bright light on a hill.  Our move will give us tremendous visibility into a community needing to see a church be the church.

God's Story

Continuing God's Story

God's Story

God story has been a great one at CCC.  As we’ve given ourselves away to the community in tangible ways, God has blessed, grown, and expanded the ministry of Cumberland.  Our move will turn the page on a new chapter of God’s story.  We want to continue God’s story at Cumberland Community Church.

Key Questions

We are keenly aware that it is difficult to buy into something that is not well understood.  While every question you may have can’t be fully answered here, it is our goal to help fill some of the “knowledge vacuums” which can create uncertainty and tentativeness.
