Opportunities To Serve...



We are starting a more organized Visitation Ministry here at Christian Family Fellowship. 

Our purpose is to visit shut-ins, people who are unable to attend church on a regular basis, those in the hospital, and others who would   benefit from our encouragement.  We would love to have others join in our ministry who have a heart for visiting people!  Please contact John Repar (719-275-7056) or the church office if you are interested in helping in this ministry, and "thank you" to everyone who already does this type of ministry on behalf of Jesus Christ and our church!

Aluminum Recycling for 'Daisy's Babies'


For many years CFF has supported Daisy
Chell in her ministry in the Philippines. One
of the ways we support her is by collecting aluminum such as soda/pop and pet food cans and any scrap aluminum. The Belbens take the aluminum to Pueblo every few months to the recycling center. The center does require that the aluminum be free of paper labels, so any pet food can labels need to be removed before depositing them in the recycle barrel. Thank you for your help!



The church is in need of several booster and/or high chairs for use during the AWANA dinners on Wednesday nights this school year.  If you have one of these items that you would like to donate or let the church borrow, please bring it to the fellowship hall.  


The Buildings & Grounds Committee is looking for a Finance Committee Representative.  If you are interested or would like more information, please contact Wayne Ireland at 719-671-3090.


Sunday Morning

Coffee Service

Do you enjoy a good cup of coffee or tea?  Do you have ideas on how to possibly expand the CFF Sunday morning coffee bar?  Do you believe it’s easier to connect with friends or maybe even non-believers, over a cup of coffee or tea?  So much the better!  

If you answered yes to any of these questions, would you be willing to take responsibility for the Sunday morning coffee service and recruit others to help you?  If so, or you would like more information on serving in this way,

please contact Mark Tarnow at 719-429-0308.



Provide Transportation

Do you know someone who needs assistance getting to church on Sundays? Would you be willing to provide transportation for someone who does need a ride? If you answered yes to either or both of those questions, please contact the church office so we can put together a team of individuals to meet a growing need at CFF. If driving is a challenge or no longer possible, you don’t have to stay at home on Sunday mornings! Don’t be shy… let us know how we can help you continue to be a vital part of God’s work here at CFF!



HELPFUL MEALS


Ava Burbank helps coordinate meals for members of our congregation who may experience a severe illness in the family, or in the event someone is hospitalized. If you are in this situation and would like to have meals delivered to your home, please contact her at 719-671-6479 or by email at as1003@ gm ail.com .

We are looking for volunteers to be added to the ‘meals ministry’ roster.  Volunteers are typically called on 1-3 times per year to provide meals for    families in our congregation that have had surgery, illness, etc.  This a wonderful behind-the-scenes ministry that is simple but means so much to those blessed by it.  Please contact Ava Burbank at 719-671-6479.
