Our Story


In the summer of 2003, a handful of worshippers started gathering every Sunday morning for church. Worship and Bible study were the core of those early services and still are today. Those early days of CCEC were spent meeting in a tiny cinderblock building at the Kiwanis-Wallas Ballpark in Ellicott City. Those days were sweet as we welcomed babies, held outreaches and new families joined this growing community of believers. From the ballpark, CCEC met at Burleigh Manor Middle School, then Centennial High School, and eventually moved to the North Laurel Community Center. In 2017, CCEC moved to our current facility in Columbia where we now worship and grow in Jesus together.

We emphasize the teaching of the Word of God--The Bible. We know that your time is valuable, and we want to fill the time you give God at CCEC with the ONE THING that can change your life, heart and mind--the Word of God. We know that as we learn God's Word systematically and faithfully, God will change us from the inside out and renew our hearts and minds.

Jesus said the greatest commandment is to love God, and the second greatest commandment is to love others.  At CCEC our mission is to love Jesus and love others.  We love Jesus because He first loved us and showed His love by dying on the cross for us.  We grow in our love for Jesus by getting to know Him through the Bible. As our love for Jesus grows, our love for others naturally follows.  


Join us every Sunday as we gather to worship together a 8:30a, 10:30a or 12:30p and every Thursday night at 7:00p.
