Churches >Savannah Christian Church
Wonderful Place to Worship and Learn!!. I have been a member of Savannah Christian Church for 33 Years, and I have witnessed first hand it's tremendous growth. I have to admit that when I first attended the new church at the Henderson Campus I was overwhelmed at the size and thought wow this is just too big, But once I was inside settled in my seat, the lights dimmed and I felt as if it was just me and God and The Pastor and the Worship team! I worshiped and sang just for God and I listened to the teachings as if they were directed just to me!! If you can make it through the front doors and once you find a seat open your heart and listen and you will find that personal relationship with God that will change your life for good!! You can't go in focusing on what you don't like or what you feel uncomfortable about because then you lose sight of what is most important, GOD!!! We are all sinners not one single person in that church is perfect, and we have people from all different backgrounds and income brackets but that is not what gets you into heaven, that is not what makes us Christian! If we were all perfect then we would not need Jesus because we would just float right into heaven no questions asked and the world would be a better place don't you think?? Sure there will be some sermons that make you uncomfortable about activities that you participate in or make you re-evaluate your life, but God never said being a Christian meant getting approval for everything you do, no you have to make changes in your life, accept the wrong and change bad habits and those sermons help you understand how to make those changes and work at being a better servent to Christ we as Christans will always be a work in progress but as long as we are learning and trying to change this is what helps us grow to a closer relationship with God!! No matter what size your church is or how many people attend that church the most important thing is that they are preaching and teaching the truth straight from the Bible!! You will always have gossip and those poeple who think they are better than you in every church no matter where you attend, but don't let those people be the ones that detour you from your close relationship with God they will have to answer to Him at a later time!! Savannah Christian Church also has a phenomenal Kids program and a wonderful youth group with tons of activities for your children to attend!! This church has so much to offer for every age or situation that you or your family might be in, so open your heart, take a deep breath and come on in, it will change your life for the better and help you learn to have a closer relationship with God!!
Don't miss the best - Jesus. My family and I have attended SCC for 10 plus years. Yes SCC is a big church. My experience is, if you will jump into regular attendance, bible study, small groups and serve in at least one ministry, you will soon begin to know and love the church body. To receive God’s blessing at any church, you first and foremost need a relationship with Christ. That is what SCC is all about – “Leading people to a life changing experience with Jesus Christ”. Christ will do the cleaning up. The sinners will always be there. Our Senior Pastor said recently (joking) he thought about putting a sign on the front of the building “Sinners Only Welcome”. I am a living testimony the more you sever and search for God the more he reveals himself to you. We (the body) are all sinners Saved by Grace. Please forgive us where we have failed you. Please don’t let a bad experience make you miss the best there is – Jesus!
Savannah Christian Church is a Mega Church. You either get lost in the shuffle or trod forward trying as you live, learn, and grow through Christ. The leaders are judgmental hypocrites, and they don't even realize it.
I went through some very trying times and never received any support from the Church.
My griefs with SCC:
1. When I was a young High School student begging for some help and guidance, the Youth Group asked me not participate because of my sin.
2. I came back to SCC to worship with my parents while my husband was in Iraq and their Military Ministry was only a gossip group made only to make Officer wives and young wives feel ostracized. Oh that isn't completely true, they also pushed Pampered Chef on you.
3. I worked at their PreSchool Program, determined not to judge the Church by a few people. It was awful! Run by incompetents with no concern for their Teacher's welfare. I was bitten numerous times by a student. Then the leaders gossiped about me and said hurtful things about my past, my marriage, and the way I dressed (My husband bought me a Gucci bag for our anniversary, and though I never mentioned it to any of them, they continuously made comments about it.).
4. Their Church budget for 2008 was over 8 million dollars. Very few of those dollars went to local Charities. Wonder how much went into the pockets of their many pastors?
5. If you work for any part of the Church, no matter how remotely, you must sign a contract that is by Christian and America's law wrong.
-You cannot associate with Homosexuals. You cannot drink any alcohol.
-You cannot curse at all.
-You cannot see R rated movies.
-You cannot be with a member of the opposite gender not your family or spouse alone.
Any many, many more.
This is an awful Church that does not have Christ as it's center.
Too Big for their own good.
We attended church there for several years. Was one of the original families when they launched the east campus. My mother in law started to attend with us. She unfortunately passed away, and we informed several people from the church about this. Not a single card, phone call, or a word came our way. We were so hurt that our "family in Christ" wouldn't open their hearts when we needed them most. We stopped going to church there. 8 months later we ran into a supposed "friend" and she said that she had been missing us (referring to "not seeing us in the crowd") at church. We told her we stopped going there about 8 months ago. She said, "Oh, i didn't know you stopped attending, I just thought we were missing each other between services."
Too big, you get lost in the crowd, and no attention to parishioners personal needs.
Proud Sinners. my husband and I were asked not to attend as is because they thought she was a distraction. Just make sure your sin is pride like theirs or you won't fit into the great church mold.
