Associate Pastor, Youth and Worship Ministry Search
The PST continues in their search for the man God has for us as our Associate Pastor of Worship and Youth. At this point, we are nearly done with our first phase of applicants. We are currently reviewing the final information received from one of these applicants and praying about whether to move forward at this time. At this point, we will either proceed into the interview phase with this candidate or begin phase 2 to seek out additional candidates. We know that God has this situation in His hands and pray often that we are walking in step with His plan, not ahead and not behind. We appreciate your continued prayers for the search team and for the man that God has for us. We trust that the Lord has a plan and are committed to following His will and guidance in this process.
Our AWANA club is in need of someone to take over the AWANA store. Troy and Jessie Chavez have done an awesome job over the past 12 years running the store but would like to pass the torch on to someone else. This would be a once a month commitment to set up and run the store and occasionally shop for items needed in the store. It would be great to have new people in place ASAP so that they could be involved with our last store this year in April to see how things work. If you have any questions or want to learn more about this great opportunity to serve the children of CFF through AWANA, call or text Sarah Comstock.

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
