Associate Pastor, Youth and Family Ministry Search

Thank you for continuing to support the Pastoral Search Team with your prayers. As we continue to search for an Associate Pastor of Youth and Family, we are working diligently to find the man that God has for us. We are excited to see this emphasis on supporting families in all stages of life and hopeful that the Lord will bring us the right candidate in His perfect timing. We posted this position on September 10th and at the time of this writing have reached out to 24 potential candidates based on the resumes and information they've posted. We've also had 4 applicants for the position. While 3 of those did not move past the first stage, we are looking to move forward in gathering more information about 1. As always, we do appreciate your prayers! All are welcome to join us on Sundays at 10:45 for a time of corporate prayer in the sanctuary.

On behalf of the Pastoral Search Team,
Pastor Mike Schoenfeld

          Save Your  Cans

Ella Rose has graciously offered to collect aluminum cans to benefit the church youth.  Please save your cans and put them in the barrel on the east side of the ‘Lighthouse’ building.  If you don’t know where the Lighthouse building is, it’s to the left of the church office. Ella checks and empties the barrel periodically and turns in the proceeds to the church office. Thank you, Ella, for taking on this ministry!

Christian Education Opportunities

Starting in September

Check out what is available:


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

CFF Gathering for Prayer

We will be meeting each Sunday in the CFF library from 8:25 a. m. to 8:45. This time will be devoted to praying exclusively for every facet of the services of our church on that particular Sunday. You are welcome to come for all or any part of the time. We will provide a handout to guide us during this time.

There is a rack with several small biblical counseling booklets in the foyer outside the main doors to the auditorium that provide biblical insight and wisdom for all kinds of life issues. Please feel free to browse these resources and if you'd like to take one for yourself or someone else please do so. If you'd like to help defray the cost of the booklets, we are suggesting a donation of $1.00 per booklet. Your donation can be placed in the offering box in an offering envelope marked "Counseling Booklets".If you don't have a dollar--no worries--just take whatever booklet you need.

BOOK RACK (in the lobby)





REMINDER: If you've taken a book off of the Book Rack in the Lobby, please make sure that you follow up and pay for it using the envelope provided in the book or by noting the book you are purchasing on the memo line if paying by check. In order to continue providing quality resources for our congregation, we do need to make sure that we collect the money for each book. Please know that we aren't making any money on this ministry, but we do strive to break even so that we can keep the book rack stocked! Thank you!
