On Sunday, October 29th we will have a short (15 mins) Business Meeting & Member Vote at the end of the Worship Service, in the Sanctuary.  The purpose of this business meeting is to provide additional information about our new security program and to vote to approve Jim Sellers as an additional member of the Elder Board.  
Following the meeting we will have our Congo Milk Fund Fundraiser in the Fellowship Hall.  Refreshments are provided by the Missions Committee.  All donations received are sent to support the Congo Milk Fund.

The CFF Outreach Committee is partnering with Bridge to Life Church for their Harvest Carnival (games and candy) on October 31st from 5:30-8:00 pm at 222 N Orchard Ave.  Our committee will have a game, and give away candy.  If you would like to donate bags of candy for this event, please bring them by the office (Mon–Fri, 9am-noon), or give the candy to Ava Burbank at church on Sundays. Thank you for supporting our Outreach Committee

Shake It Off Tot Gym

What a great time with this outreach to our community!  It has really been a blessing. The parents and children are such a joy! There have been wonderful parents and grandparents. They seem to look forward to seeing everyone and visiting while their children play.

Tot gym is every 2nd and 4th Wednesday.
Jane  really needs someone to come alongside her this year.  It would involve coming at 9:30 to help set up and staying until about 12:00.  Even if you can only come to set up, it would be a huge help!  This is a great opportunity to visit with moms and make connections and develop relationships. We always have a good crowd of about 20 children, moms, dads and even a few grandmas.  If you could make the commitment for these 6 months, it would be appreciated, and you may feel as blessed by this outreach as Jane does!

For the last few years we have been using trikes that were donated by the preschool, but they are old enough that they will not be usable this year.  We need to buy two new trikes this year.  If you would like to make a donation, the cost is $35.00 (make checks payable to CFF and note ‘Tot Gym’ in memo).

Call Jane Mattox at 275-1041 if you have questions or would like to help be a part of this outreach.

Women’s Sharing & Prayer Time at 6:30 pm

Monday, November 13th

Join us the 2nd Monday of the month and hear what God is doing in the lives of other women.  Be encouraged as we lift one another up in prayer.  Location TBA.

This fall we are excited to offer 2 different opportunities for you to get to know other couples and families in the church.  We encourage you to choose the one that works best for you and your family.

3 X 3 Dinners (3 months / 3 families) – similar to our 4 X 4 Dinners, just a little simpler to coordinate.  3 couples or families will get together, once each month for 3 months.

Sunday Afternoon Dinner Club – 2 individuals, families, or couples will get together on Sunday afternoon (or another time of your choosing).  You can go to a restaurant or to someone’s house.  The objective is that each month you have the opportunity to get together with a new individual, couple, or family.  Watch for more details in this month’s Sunday bulletins!...

  • CFF T-SHIRTS have been designed, ordered and delivered.  The committee members will wear these shirts when representing CFF at various events.  They will also be sold to the congregation for $15 each.  Additional orders will be placed as needed. Make your check payable to CFF and put ‘Outreach T-shirt’ in the memo section, along with sizes needed.  Contact Ava Burbank for more info at 719-671-6479 or cffbookkeeper@cffcanoncity.org.  This is a great way to let the community know about our church!!  Wear your shirts everywhere!!!

  • If you have any ideas that will help us reach out to the community, please contact one of the committee members:  Dennis and Ava Burbank, Jeanine Ormandy, Jody McKean, Jim Sellers, Carol Wenzl, Bonnie Enriquez, and Ella Rose.

--- Your Outreach Committee

4 x 4 Dinners consist of 4 CFF families getting together once a month to share a meal.  Your group of 4 families will take turns hosting the meal, and the other families help bring side dishes, dessert,  etc.  After 4 months, the groups will be re-shuffled and you will have the opportunity to get to know new families. Our first round of 4 x 4 Dinners started this month.  If you are interested in participating or would like more information, please    contact Phillis VanRiper at 719-269-1878.
