 Ministries 

Jesus told us, His disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of Christian Fellowship Center is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Christian Fellowship Center encourages people to get involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as helping fold church bulletins, to volunteering with the church Cleaning Crew, Maintenance Crew, or the Worship Team. These are just a few of our many ministry outreaches.

 

Mission Outreach

Christian Fellowship Center is thrilled to be part of the spread of God's kingdom around the world. Each year, Pastor Glenn travels to Africa to assist pastors and leaders in practical projects and evangelistic outreach. We are also affiliated with many pastors and leaders in Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Mexico, Sweden, England, and many more. We encourage all of our people to respond to God's call for ministry, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own community. If you are interested in donating to our Mission Outreach at CFC, you have the opportunity to do so either online at this website, during our church service, or by contacting the church office.

Music

God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in the sound. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of Christian Fellowship Center, using their talents and gifts to glorify God. If you are interested in being part of our worship team, please contact Jim Tennant.

 

Team Yes!

Team Yes! volunteers at Christian Fellowship Center fill an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, guiding traffic, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, unlocking doors, locking doors, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. Team Yes! is a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is an integral part to church life.

 

Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege at CFC. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. Our sound team is made up of individuals devoted to using creative style and new innovative ideas to create videos in order to promote activities and other ministries at our church. All of our weekly sermons are uploaded to our website in video and audio formats as well. We also maintain an active Facebook page for additional church communication.

 

Marriage Counseling

Marriages can be difficult to maintain. Misunderstanding, confusion, resentment, and anger can flare up in any marriage. We host a marriage 101 program, and have couples who are devoted to encouraging others in their marriages through counseling. Their role is listening, understanding, helping, and encouraging struggling couples to, by God's grace, save marriages, and repair relationships. Many couples have found fresh hope and new joy in a warm and fulfilling relationship with their spouse.

 

Children's Church

In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, Christian Fellowship Center holds a children's church service in conjunction with the main service. This special time gives kids more opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Our friendly children's church volunteers have an endless stream of creativity--ranging from puppet shows, to games, to object lessons. They also have their own praise and worship service geared to interactive fun for dancing and singing to our Lord and Savior.

 

 

Small Groups

 
At Christian Fellowship Center, we believe that Small Groups are integral to our spiritual health. Biblically, the New Testament church would meet in the synagogue, which housed thousands of people. After the service, "they broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts" (Acts 2:46b). If this is how the Holy Spirit started the church, we certainly want to follow His lead!
 
In 2017, we plan to revive enthusiasm for Small Groups, which will be held in the homes of our members. We envision a strengthened and unified church who seeks God daily, and through Small Groups, meets with other believers regularly to love, encourage, and sharpen the spirits of our members.
