Pastor Mike's Book of the Month

September 2022


To be quite honest, I've never really been very interested in biographies, so when I was given Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy many years ago as a Christmas gift, it did little more than collect dust on my shelf. In recent months, however, the biography of Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer kept crossing my mind and a burden came upon me to read it. Though it was quite a long read at 640 pages, it was well worth it! Bonhoeffer lived at a crucial time in a crucial place, ministering in Germany in the years leading up to and during World War II and played a pivotal role in the response of the Christian Church to the atrocities performed by Hitler and the Nazis. Indeed, he was not content to only allow his theology to influence how he thought, but allowed it to dictate how he lived his life. In a time where the church and the state in Germany were not on friendly terms, Dietrich Bonhoeffer stood up for what he knew to be true and committed himself wholeheartedly to seeking and doing the will of God in his own life. He was involved in the church's struggle against the Nazi regime and was personally involved in the plot against Hitler. I found this to be a gripping and powerful read that I would suggest has a great deal to say to us today. There are a few copies available on the book rack in the lobby for $25 each!

Tot Gym


Tot Gym will be starting up October 12th. Tot gym is a place where mothers and other caregivers can bring their toddlers and preschoolers to play in the gym while connections and friendships can be made with other moms. We put out many large active toys like trikes, slides, scooters and balls and even a small bounce house for the children to burn off energy in a warm and safe environment. Tot Gym is held the 2nd and 4th Wednesday from October through April. If you would like to help with this outreach ministry, please contact Jane Mattox or Sarah Comstock.

Daily Bread's Discovery Series


You will notice outside the Prayer Room (by the coat rack), there are several different booklets available with interesting topics. Please feel free to take one or two. They are free!


Children's Church is in need of teachers.  It would involve a one Sunday a month commitment.  All supplies and lessons are provided and ready for you each Sunday.  You do not need to have a teaching certificate or extensive Bible training or knowledge to be qualified.  All we ask is that you have a personal relationship with Christ, attend church regularly, and are willing to share God's truths to the children.  You can even learn alongside the children as you go.  Please let me know if you are interested or if you have helped in the past and would like to continue helping.

Volunteers are still needed in the nursery! Lately ,we haven't had many children in our nursery at CFF. But, we want to make sure that if we have visitors that someone is available, especially if those visitors are looking for a church family. Please consider taking a monthly turn to make sure this ministry is available each Sunday morning. If you have any questions, please talk with Sarah Comstock.

Thank you, Sarah Comstock
