In light of new CDC guidelines and local covid numbers, we are recommending masks during worship attendance. We do not want to bind anyone’s conscience on the matter. Please make all medical decisions in consultation with your doctor. The elders will be wearing masks in an effort to help everyone feel comfortable and welcome at CFC. Please do not attend if you are sick or have recently been exposed to Covid.

Thank you for visiting Christ Fellowship today! We use Remind to send announcements and prayer requests. To sign-up, use this link:
