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.

The ten members of the Visitation Committee have been active this past year. We have made phone calls, sent cards, visited in homes and nursing homes, and prayed for one another, helped with meals if needed, and given rides to doctors appointments and shopping.

We have had lunch at the Bruce McCandless Veterans Home twice with Jim Powers. We meet every two months to pray and review the progress or changes and needs for visitation. Our last meetings were on March 15 and May 17 at 2:30; we will meet again in July. We pray that God would lead this group, bless us and those we visit, and help each one of us grow in His work; help us to be stronger as a team when we pray with people we visit; help us to be encouraging to one another and all the people we visit. Let us know if anyone new needs a visit. New volunteers are always welcome to join us.

Join us on Friday, June 28th at 5:00 pm for a Senior Potluck to kick off the summer!! The potluck will be held
at Mountain View Park (north of Central on Orchard). Please bring a generous dish to share - salads, a main dish or dessert. Plates, cups, plastic ware and drinks will be provided. If weather becomes an issue, the CFF
Fellowship Hall is reserved as a backup. NEW - Bring your favorite Bible verse or quote to share. If you want to share the reason for this to be your favorite, please do so. We will collect these and share them with
CFF shut-ins (Janet Pell's suggestion). If you have questions, call John at 275-7056.

Our next CFF Visitation Committee meeting will be on Wednesday, July 17'h at 2:00 pm at the Village Inn. FREE PIE DAY!!

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!
