If you are interested in learning more about Christian Family Fellowship and/or becoming a member, we are having a Discovery Class on Saturday, March 9th, from 9â€”2 pm in the Gathering Place, Room 111 (down the hall, last door on the left). Lunch will be provided. Please sign up in the lobby to ensure we have enough materials.
New Sunday School Class—
The greatest desire for every believer is to see their loved ones walk with the Lord. This is why it can also be the greatest heartbreak when we witness those we love reject the Gospel, or walk away from their faith. Beginning Sunday, March 10th, Pastor Mike will be teaching a nine week Sunday School Class called "Passing the Torch." This class is going to focus on how we can share our faith with our loved ones. Whether you still have children in your home, grandchildren across the country, or lost friends or coworkers, you have both the opportunity and the responsibility to try to pass the torch of your faith to your friends and loved ones. Psalm 68:20 reminds us that “Our God is a God who saves; from the Sovereign LORD comes escape from death.” When you are a willing tool in the hand of our saving God, He can use you in the lives of those you love! If you are interested in attending this class, please sign up on the sheet in the church lobby so we can have enough materials.
Christian Family Fellowship recognizes the need to minister to and care for one another beyond our current volunteer ministries. The Helping Hands restart would expand our opportunities to help others, not necessarily in our church only,·but as a coordinated outreach to those around us. Possible areas of help include:
► Driver or companion to and from appointments ► Snow shoveling ► Seasonal cleanup ► Special building or cleaning projectere you can further participate with the body.
Please fill out the form below and return it to the church office. For more information please call Carolyn Schwartz
CFYouth is looking into an opportunity to go to Texas to serve for a week in July 2024 at a special needs camp. If you are over 13 and interested in attending, please talk with Adam or Laura Copper about signing up. We will also need a couple adult volunteers to serve alongside the youth for the week. Registration opens in October, so please get signed up as soon as possible if you are interested. We will then set up a meeting to share more specifics. CFF family, please be looking for opportunities in the year to support our Youth.
Awana still needs a couple of men helpers. The Awana store would appreciate monetary donations or items to sell in the store.
Shake It Off Tot Gym is started up again on October 11th! It runs from 9:30 am - 11:30 am on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays. Tot Gym is a warm and safe place for toddlers and preschoolers to play and burn off some energy while moms and caregivers meet and build relationships. Tot Gym could use a volunteer to help set up on Tot Gym days at 9 am. Please call Sarah Comstock or Jane Mattox if you are willing to help. Thank you!
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!
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.
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.
