Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. 1 Cor. 12:7
 

Awana Program

Our Awana Program here at CCF is part of more than 13,000 Awana Clubs which operate around the world.  We welcome boys and girls  Kindergarten through 6th Grade of any faith. Our goal is to "reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him".  We do this on Tuesday nights from September through the end of April from 6- 8 p.m. A typical Awana night includes an opening ceremony, handbook time, game time, song and story time and passing out awards.  The kids have a great time as they learn about Jesus and memorize scripture.  Contact Kim Roach at 762-1271.

Offerings

Each two-person team is comprised of a counter and a computer-entry person.  The time involved each fifth Sunday to complete the offering count is 30 to 45 minutes after the morning service.  Persons interested in being apart of this important ministry team can contact the CCF office..

If you are interested in working with this team or in helping in any way, please call the CCF Office.  Questions about the library, or to make donations, contact Ginny Tiergardt.
 

Music Team

 

The mission of the CCF Music Team is to facilitate the praise and worship of God through His Son, Jesus Christ by the power and leading of the Holy Spirit.  As God inhabits the praises of His people, we believe that music and worship are of fundamental importance in church life.  The spiritual life and growth of the church are enhanced when real praise and worship take place.  The singing of psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs is found throughout the Old and New Testaments denoting the importance God places upon them.  Worship is one of the ways of communing with God.  Worship does not change God, worshippers are changed by worshipping God.  We believe it is the function of the Music Team to develop worshippers by helping to create an atmosphere of freedom of worship.  We want to encourage the capacities of individuals for worship thus improving corporate worship.  To this end, we try to use a variety of styles of music as well as other media to allow people the freedom to move toward God.  It is in His presence and power that the inner self worships in Spirit and Truth.  The outward expression of worship can be seen and heard when this happens. The Music Team at CCF strives for excellence instrumentally and vocally.  We believe the church is a place to find, develop, and ultimately give back the gifts with which He has graced us.  Members of the Team encourage one another in developing their personal worship and the gifts God gave us. Throughout the history of CCF, the Music Team has always tried to put Jesus at the forefront.  He alone is worthy of worship.  Our goal is to glorify God which will lead to worship, evangelism, discipleship, fellowship, healing, repentance, growth, renewal, forgiveness, freedom.  And in a word, grace.

Praise the Lord!  How good it is to sing praises to Our God, how pleasant and fitting to praise Him.  Psalm 147:1   "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.  Colossians 3:16   The Music Team is grateful to God and CCF for a chance to serve the body with the gifts that God has given them.   Dr. Randy Tyner leads our Music Team.

Parish Nurse

The Parish Nurse Program is a partnership between Trinity Regional Health System and local congregations.  The goal of this partnership is to then help individuals prevent illness and promote healing of the whole person - body, mind, spirit and relationships.  Through this ministry, our desire is to express the love of Christ to the whole person and to the community beginning with Community Christian Fellowship.  Specific activities and responsibilities of the Parish Nurse may include the following: health promotion, referral and advocacy, visitation, facilitate support ministries and interpretation of the relationship between health and faith, communication and documentation.  Examples of the categories may include:  blood pressure checks, group education, assisting persons to use existing community resources, meeting with families to plan care, making home, hospital, nursing home, and bereavement visits, coordinating volunteers to provide transportation, prepare meals, and provide respite care, assisting families in time of crisis, encouraging the use of prayer, scripture, and devotional materials as aids to healing.  If you would like to know more about the Parish Nurse Program, please contact Margaret Cooper.  Office hours at CCF are from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Wednesdays or you may contact Margaret at home at 563-323-9243.
