OUR HISTORY

 

Community Christian Church (CCC) was established on October 1, 2011 by Pastor Oggs after much prayer. After receiving direction and purposeful vision from God, he felt directed to share what had been given him to others.

On Friday, October 28, 2011, an interest meeting was held at the Lou Walker Senior Center located at 2538 Panola Road, Lithonia, GA 30058 in the Victory Room. During the interest meeting Pastor Oggs shared, among other things, CCC's vision and mission statements.

Shortly thereafter, the inaugural worship service was held Sunday, November 6, 2011 at the Hilton Garden Inn Atlanta East/Stonecrest Hotel in Lithonia, Georgia, which is located close to The Mall at Stonecrest.

Over the next year, the membership, through sound biblical preaching, teaching, and life application of God's Holy Word, experienced rapid growth. This necessitated the search to move to a larger facility which was more conducive to worship and allow further growth.

Many letters were sent out to various churches to which Avondale Pattillo United Methodist Church (APUMC), located at 3260 Covington Hwy. Decatur, GA 30032, responded favorably. Understanding our needs, APUMC graciously extended CCC an invitation to share its church for worship, Bible study and other church related events.  On Sunday, November 4, 2012 CCC reached another historical milestone when it began worshiping at APUMC.

Once again, under God's constant guidance and loving care, CCC has experienced rapid growth and anticipates doing so for many years to come in our present location, 2728 Wesley Chapel Road, Decatur, GA 30034. We invite you to bring your God-given gifts, talents, and abilities and become part of our living history as we seek to honor and worship our Heavenly Father in spirit and truth.
