Thank you for your interest in Crane Eater Community Church in Calhoun, GA. The name ‘Crane Eater’ is certainly unusual and unique. The community of Crane Eater was named after a Native-American Indian called ‘Crane Eater’. He married a caucasian-lady and together they lived in Gordon County (Calhoun), Georgia.
The Indian-tribe that ‘Crane Eater’ belonged to had originally made their homes across the property where our church is now located. Because of a fresh water spring nearby, it was home to many Indians and provided plenty of fresh water… which is still flowing today!
‘Crane Eater’ and his tribe were part of the ‘Trail-of-Tears’ that drove the Indians toward federal land in other parts of the country. However, ‘Crane Eater’ remained with his beautiful bride in Gordon County. Hence, the name Crane Eater Community Church was established.
Today, Crane Eater reaches the Calhoun, Gordon County area, North Georgia, and the world! Our motto is to be a people centered upon love, prayer and grace. Our desire is to turn around everything that is broken and bring new life. We have just completed our first phase of our building program and are presently reducing debt while completing phase-two.
