Pioneer Club Sunday

This Sunday (Feb 13) is Pioneer Club Sunday.  The children will be singing for the congregation during the worship service and hosting a Bake Sale after the service.  The proceeds will go the Pioneer Club Headquarters.  Pioneer Clubs provide weekly programs for boys and girls in kindergarten through fifth grade each Wednesday night at 6:45pm at Christian Fellowship.  The club helps children make Christ Lord in every aspect of life, form healthy relationships, develop life skills, sing, memorize scripture and study God’s word.  And that’s worth celebrating!!

 

Annual Congregational Meeting

Our Annual Congregational Meeting will be on Sunday, February 27 during the Sunday School hour (approx. 11:30 am.).  Please plan to attend since we will be voting on the new budget and other church matters.  In order to cast a vote, you must be a doctrinal signer, at least 18 years of age, and have attended Christian Fellowship for at least one year.  (If you would like to sign a Desire for Fellowship form, please see one of the elders.)

Copies of the proposed 2022 budget will be available in the next few days.  A Question and Answer meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, February 22 at 6:30pm to discuss the budget report prior to the Congregational Meeting.

 

 

 

Celebration Service

On January 2, we will have a Celebration Service during our 10:00am worship.  This will be a time to share how we have seen God’s hand of blessing, mercy, comfort, provision and strength in our lives.  We will give praise and thanksgiving back to God for the many ways He cares for us especially through the church body.

 

Christmas Services

We will be having our regular worship service at 10:00am on Sunday, December 19.  The choir will be providing special music during this service.  There will be Children’s Church for those children ages 5-12.

A Christmas Eve Candlelight Service is planned for Friday, December 24 from 6:30pm to 7:30pm.  This is a special opportunity to invite guests to gather with our church family to celebrate the anticipation and joy of our Savior’s arrival.  Come and enjoy Christmas carols, a special children’s skit and a brief message by Dick Altman.  This service will be streamed live on our website for those who are unable to attend.

 

 

 

GriefShare Support Group

There will be a 14-week GriefShare Support Group beginning at the church on Monday,  November 1, 2021 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.  You will find help and encouragement after the death of a loved one.  Let us help you through your grief journey.  Workbooks are $15.00 each.    If you have any questions, see Jean Priestap or call the church office (419-866-1332).

Believer’s Baptism

Next Sunday, October 10, will have a Believer’s Baptism  in the Sanctuary following the worship service.  Water baptism is an outward sign or testimony of the inward work of the Holy Spirit, who baptizes the believer into the Body of Christ.   (Matthew 3:11, 1 Corinthians 12:13)   In doing this, we identify ourselves with our risen Lord and Savior.  If you are ready to publicly declare your faith as a follower of Jesus Christ,  please talk to an Elder.

Child Dedication Service

There will be a CHILD DEDICATION SERVICE on Sunday, November 7 during the morning worship hour.  We place a very high priority on the Christian family—godly parents bringing up their children “in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.” (Ephesians 6:4).  An important part of the parents’ obligation to their children is to pray earnestly for them dedicating them to God for His salvation and their spiritual growth.  Many parents want to make a public declaration of their desire to dedicate themselves to this task, and in so doing ask the body of believers to join them in prayer for their children.  Please see an Elder is you wish to dedicate your child.
