Opportunities To Serve...



 HELP NEEDED:

  • We still need new Video Techs!  Time commitment is 3 hours/month, on a Sunday morning.  We’ll provide as much training time as you need. Program is user friendly and easy to learn.  This is a vital ministry for our church worship service, so please be praying that we can meet this need quickly.  For more information please contact Karen Belben (719-371-6450), Shawn Johnston (719-251-2899), or Warren Knight (719-429-9926).

  • We still need a new CFF Coffee Bar Manager.  Weekly time commitment is minimal, with a lot of flexibility. Training provided, with periodic back-up help when necessary.  If you enjoy having coffee, tea, and water available on Sunday mornings, talk to Mark or Kathy Tarnow before July 7th!

  • CFF is in need of someone to take over Women's Ministry, effective January 1, 2019.  This would entail coordinating women's events during the year.  In the past, we have had a retreat, "IF tables", Bunco night, Bible studies, and we have a Ladies Tea coming up on December 1st, but other events related to women could be planned. Interested parties should contact Heidi Clanton, CFF Volunteer Coordinator, at 431-0066.


Christian Service Committee


"The committee recognizes milestone anniversaries.  Unfortunately, when pictures were taken for our new directory, many of the congregation did not put the year of their marriage down.  If you did not add the year to your date, please call Rayma at 275-2259 or Jeanine at 275-2927, with the year and date.  We do not want to miss recognizing these anniversaries!"




Christian Family Fellowship Visitation Ministry is a group of volunteers who enjoy fellowship.





● Our purpose is to visit church family, neighbors and friends who are in care facilities, hospitals or homebound, or just appreciate our visit.
● We visit, pray and share Pastor Jeff's sermon CDs with those who are unable to make it to church.
● If appropriate, we offer to supply meals through the Meal Ministry of Ava Burbank and others.
● We meet bi-monthly to evaluate our ministry and who we could encourage with a visit.
If you'd like to be part of this important CFF ministry, have questions or know someone who'd be blessed by a visit, please contact: John Repar 719-275-7056 or Bob Saulmon 719-275-1226, or the CFF Church office.

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.



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.
