Here are links to other ongoing, great CCB opportunities where you can Connect!

Creating a Church Community Builder Profile
Church Community Builder is a great web-based tool that CCB uses to communicate with others within the congregation. It has mass email capabilities, calendars, announcements, etc. It is also a great way to connect and learn who others are within the CCB community (similar to an online directory). For more info on how to create an account, click here!

Small Groups at CCB
CCB offers a variety of small-group options. Got questions? Contact David Soreano, Ministry Coordinator, for more information. He can be reached at He will either answer your questions or direct you to a group facilitator who can.

CCB Booster Club
The CCB Booster Club is for all CCB members and regular attenders. Its purpose is to show support for the children and youth of CCB through attendance at various activities in which they are involved. Parents, please send us your children’s events/team schedules (games, plays, concerts, etc.) and we will get them on the calendar. To add an event, visit or drop your information in the “fish bowl” container located at the entrance to the sanctuary. Event scheduling announcements will be made on an ongoing basis as the calendar develops.

Soul Sisters
The Soul Sisters bible study for women meets on Friday mornings. For more information, contact Johnna Matthews at or Kelsey Cranmer at

CCB UM Women’s Group
The CCB UM Women’s Group meets monthly on the third Monday. Its members grow together in faith through study and service to others. Open to all women.

Men’s Ministry Breakfast
The Men’s Ministry group meets every second Sunday at 8 a.m. for a Bible study and biscuit breakfast. For more information, contact Lee Gladden at

Nursing Home Music & Ministry
On the third Sunday of each month (with rare exception), from 2:00–3:00 p.m., several joyful CCB voices converge upon one of our nearby assisted living facilities to brighten the day of residents and join them in the singing of favorite hymns. Pastor Keith carries his guitar along and facilitates this always-makes-everyone-feel-better time. Listen and watch for announcements of the location of the month. Need more info? Call or text Keith at 615-496-8115. The more the merrier!

Mission Opportunity — Oak Mountain Missions Ministries
Oak Mountain Missions Ministries, one of CCB’s ministry partners, supplies more than 500 jars of peanut butter to those in need each month, making it a pantry staple that needs to be replenished regularly. They also need jelly. If each household in the CCB family donated just one jar per month, we would provide more than 20 percent of their peanut butter needs on a monthly basis. Can you help? Donations can be placed in the wicker basket in the lobby.

Fundraiser for Oak Mountain Mission Ministry
Oak Mountain Mission Ministry and CCB have shared in a partnership ministry for a number of years, and now there is a way to help them raise funds just by shopping for the things we purchase anyway. Through a program called AmazonSmile (made available by the Amazon Smile Foundation), every purchase you make at will result in a donation of half of 1.0% of your purchase to Oak Mountain Mission Ministry. To shop, visit online. Sign in to your existing Amazon account, or create one if you don’t already have one. Search in the list of charities for Oak Mountain Mission Ministries, and begin shopping. Eligible products will be marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile Donation” on the product detail page. For more information, contact Cliff Dreyfus via email at or via phone at 205-663-6128.
