Be a part of His mission.

Throughout Cedar Springs Presbyterian Church’s 226 years, the faithfulness of God has persisted. What God has done, He will continue to do. We are called to respond. We have the privilege of being part of His mission.

We have a rich history, a strong foundation. Our future mission, God’s mission, must be as strong. That begins with ensuring we are ready to meet the ministry needs we have before us.

This is a moment of transition in our church. Our impact on Knoxville, the nation, and the world is not our history. It is our future.

Be a part of His mission.

Janie Miller – Live Deeply

“I’m Janie Miller and this is how I’ve been living deeply through the Strong Foundation. Future Mission. capital campaign.

I picked up the phone and stepped into one of those devastating moments now frozen in time- it was June 29, 1961, and I still recall it vividly. My father had been in a serious car accident in Mississippi – where he had driven for his work- and the extent of his injuries were unknown at that point. Because my mother had never learned to drive, my husband Ralph and I (who, like Mother, were living in Memphis) rushed to get Mother and my brother and drove down to the hospital, but it was too late. Daddy had died at 49 years of age. I was only 20, just pregnant with our first child and my mother, age 42, was two and a half months into her own – unplanned – pregnancy. So there my mother was, with a 10-year-old son and 17-year-old daughter still at home, and pregnant with her fifth child.” Read the rest of Janie’s story…

Madelyn Malone – Live Deeply

“I’m Madelyn Malone, and I just finished a two-year internship working with the CSPC high school ministry. I was plugging into the lives of a group of girls who were coming in as freshmen at the same time I started as an intern. Here’s how I’ve been living deeply through that experience.

Six months into my CSPC internship, I was thinking about leaving. I really missed my community back in Alabama and wanted to be where they were. When I moved away from college, it was a harder transition than I realized it would be. I was raised in Memphis but went to college at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa (I always rode horses, and they had a great equestrian program). I’ll spare you Vols fans the obligatory ‘Roll Tide!’ (Oops, guess I didn’t!), but I’d had an incredible group of close friends at college. Read the rest of Madelyn’s story…

Eamonn Cottrell – Live Deeply

I’m Eamonn Cottrell, and this is how I’ve been living deeply.

“I was miserable, couldn’t sleep, and felt like I had the flu. I was 19 years old, and I had just woken up in the last place I ever dreamed I would visit: an addiction rehab facility in the middle of nowhere, Mississippi. The hardest part, as I got cleaned up, was being stuck with myself and asking- How did a church kid like me get here? I was home schooled through fifth grade, so my social network was my neighborhood and CSPC. My biggest memories were around my middle school years in the mid-90s. I remember being really close with some of the church middle school leaders then- they were really impactful; second only to my parents, I guess, and I probably listened to them more because they WEREN’T my parents!

Brandon Sullivan – Live Deeply

I’m CSPC member Brandon Christian Sullivan, and this is how I’m living deeply.

“I was only 21, but I felt like I had never been fed so much. The year was 2009, and I’d just started attending CSPC, but I knew it was my new church home. There was such grace in John Wood’s preaching- and getting to experience the Lord’s table almost every Sunday, I just loved it. After a few weeks of being there, John said something to the effect of, ‘If you are being fed here, then your Christian duty and responsibility is to serve.’ So I was like, ‘Alright, I’m going to do it.’ He said there was an opportunity in children’s ministry, and I had worked in kids’ ministry at my previous church. So I decided to see what they needed, got involved in the kids’ ministry, and started off as a first grade boys small group leader. Read the rest of Brandon’s story…
