To our CFC family,

We were so touched by the kind words, prayer of blessing and monetary gifts that you presented to us at last week’s potluck before we headed out on our 6-week Sabbatical.  We hope to bless others in return during our travels as God gives us opportunity. Look for updates and pictures of our journey on the CFC Facebook page. Pastor Tim & Kathy

Today is Communion Sunday. Please prepare your hearts and minds this morning as we partake of the Lord’s Supper together. The bread served during communion is gluten-free.

Impact Youth grades 8-12, will be meeting tonight at NCF (Old Campus) beginning at 5:00 pm. They will also be meeting next Sunday, October 9th at NCF (Old Campus) beginning at 5:00 pm.

Everence is hosting a four-week webinar series Managing Your Finances – Faithfully; continuing this Wednesday, October 5, participants will hear the last webinar in this series: “Retirement Readiness: Understanding Your Income Options”.  During the webinar, you will hear sound ideas for generating a retirement income stream that lasts, including when to begin taking Social Security. Please see Kelly if you are interested in the link to view any of the webinars.

Mark your calendars! Potluck Sunday will be held on Sunday, October 16th, following the morning service at the FWC.  Please plan to stay following the service for a time of great food, fellowship and to get to know others in the CFC Family. Bring a dish to share & invite a friend.


Pastor Tim & Kathy left for Sabbatical on September 21st and will be returning at the end of October. During their travels they will be at Sight & Sound to see the live production of the “Story of David,” will go to the Museum of the Bible and the Holocaust Museum, the Creation Museum and The Ark. They will also spend several weeks in Ashville, NC at The Cove to attend a number of seminars and will visit family & friends before returning. The CFC Leadership Team & others in the CFC family will be taking care of things here at home. Please contact someone from Leadership if you have a need.

Beginning September 25th, the CFC Family is now worshipping together at the Family Worship Center in Naubinway on Sunday mornings beginning at 10 AM and will continue meeting together through the November 6th service.  Please help us spread the word to others in the community and potential guests/visitors. Thank you!

During Pastor Tim’s sabbatical we will have a number of people here to share the message including Deb DeWyse, Steve Anable, Carol Norman, and a representative from the ministry of Beauty for Ashes. Also, Matt Laky from the CFC Family will share his testimony and how God has worked in his life.

The first week of sabbatical has been great and we are seeing many amazing things! You can follow our journey on the CFC Facebook page.  Thank you for your continued prayers as we journey on.   Pastor Tim & Kathy

“Life is a journey filled with twists and turns, ups and downs, pitfalls and potholes.  Through the seasons of life, God never intended for people to walk the path of life lonely, without guidance, and carrying the heavy baggage of a broken world.  Join us as we journey together and learn to trust the God of the Bible to be our Guide."
