What are Sunday services like?
When you pull into the parking lot, you will find guest parking close to the main entrance. Greeters will welcome you at the front door. Once inside, you will find that we work hard to make sure every Sunday service is creative and relevant to your life. Our goal is to communicate the Good News of Jesus Christ in the best way possible and to help people connect with God in a real way.
What about my children?
One third of those who attend CFC are 18-years-old or younger. We know that more than 75% of all believers make their initial commitment to Christ before the age of 18. Our staff considers this time extremely precious. It's our prayer that they find Him and learn what it means to follow Him as a result of their experiences. We provide age-appropriate instruction for Nursery- 3rd grade at both the 9:30 and 11:00 service, and a special service just for 4th and 5th graders at 9:30. We want a child's early experiences at church to be safe and happy ones. When parents check in their child, they are asked to put the child's name on a two-sticker nametag. One part of the nametag is placed on the child and the parent takes the other. When the parent returns they must give their portion of the nametag as a "security claim check" for their child. Please see our Kidszone page for complete details.
Will I have to sign, give or say anything?
If you're visiting, we won't make you wear a visitor badge or stand up to be introduced. We won't ask you to donate or volunteer. We want you to remain as anonymous as you want to, but we encourage you to visit CFC over several weeks to see what's going on. For your convenience, a response/communication card is printed in the bulletin each week. You may use this to provide us with any information you wish to share.
What should I wear?
Whatever you feel comfortable in. People wear everything from business casual to shorts and sandals. Feel free to leave the tie and high heel shoes at home.
What do you have for middle school and high school students?
Every Sunday morning at 9:30 am, the students experience a sense of community along with relevant biblical teaching through small groups, interactive games; food, video curriculum, and more. We encourage the students' primary worship experience to be the 11:00 am service that takes place in the main worship center with the larger church body. And on Wednesday nights we offer an engaging worship gathering with outreach-focused teaching and programming experienced through live worship music, a message/talk, student testimonies and creative multimedia.
Can I find out what this Sunday's message is going to be about?
Yes, our homepage will always have information about the current message series.
