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.

Easter Sunday Worship-April 4

Easter lilly

There will be TWO different services of worship on Easter Sunday morning (April 4):

9:00 AM – Remembrance Service with communion

9:45 AM – Fellowship time

10:15 AM – Worship Service

Ken Kutz will be giving the message during the Worship Service.

There will be Children’s Church during the Easter Worship Service but not during the Remembrance Service.

Between the two services, there will be a time of fellowship downstairs in the Fellowship Hall.  We are asking people to bring Easter breads (cut and ready to serve) to share during this time.

GriefShare Support Group

There will be a 14-week GriefShare Support Group beginning at the church on Monday, February 1, 2021 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.  This class offers help and encouragement after the death of a spouse, child, family member, or friend.  You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone.  Workbooks are $15.00 each.    If you have any questions, see Jean Priestap or Cathy Buckenmeyer.

Annual Congregational Meeting

Our Annual Congregational Meeting will be on Sunday, February 28 during the Sunday School hour (approx. 11:20 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 2021 budget will be available in the next few weeks.
