SERVING NEEDS

We plan to provide 200 filled backpacks for economically challenged students at Mandarin Oaks Elementary. The Readiosity fund will purchase the backpacks.  Would you to help by purchasing school supplies?


 SIGN UP HERE for specific items you want to supply.  Please bring those items to CFC by Wed. August 12.  Collection Bins will be outside the church office beginning this Sunday. 

BUT THAT'S NOT ALL...Would you help provide.  200 cards to go to senior adults in nursing homes. Please write an encouraging note to seniors who remain in quarantine due to COVID.  Notes from children are especially appreciated by the seniors. That creates an opportunity for families to serve together.


There will be a box for cards outside the church office entrance beginning Sunday.  We are hoping to collect about 200 cards by FriDAY August 21 and deliver them, (hopefully) with flowers, to nursing homes near CFC.

At CFC we believe that through serving we obey and glorify God, build up the church body and reach out to others.

Benefits of Serving

 

What are the benefits of serving?

What does the Bible say about serving?

 

Through serving we glorify God, build up the church body and reach out to others. Here at CFC we believe that service is absolutely necessary - the church body needs everybody's help! As Christians, we are directed to serve (I Pt. 4:10) and this is one of the ways we worship God (I Pt. 4:11, Rom 12:1).

When each of us does our part and uses our God-given gifts, we help to build up the local church and the larger Christian community (Eph. 4:12, Eph. 4:16). We want to help you to be fruitful and fulfilled in a meaningful place of service. Our desire is that every member at CFC engage in the work of Christ according to the gifts and passions given them by the Holy Spirit.

 

"Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms." - I Peter 4:10

 

"...to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up..." - Ephesians 4:12
