Shake It Off Tot Gym

What a great time with this outreach to our community!  It has really been a blessing. The parents and children are such a joy! There have been wonderful parents and grandparents. They seem to look forward to seeing everyone and visiting while their children play.

Tot gym is every 2nd and 4th Wednesday. Next Date: November 22

For the last few years we have been using trikes that were donated by the preschool, but they are old enough that they will not be usable this year.  We need to buy two new trikes this year.  If you would like to make a donation, the cost is $35.00 (make checks payable to CFF and note ‘Tot Gym’ in memo).

Call Jane Mattox at 275-1041 if you have questions or would like to help be a part of this outreach.

Decorate the Church for Christmas


Saturday, December 2nd starting at 9:00 am, come help decorate the church for the Advent Season!  Enjoy decorating while visiting with each other and having lots of laughs.  The more hands we have, the faster it will go!

Christian Family Preschool is having a Quilt Silent Auction Fundraiser during the month of November.  Pictures of the beautiful, gently-used quilts are accompanied by bidding sheets (black binder) in the Lobby. The quilts will be displayed on Sunday, November 12th & 19th in the Preschool Area.  These quilts would make an amazing gift for someone special ~ Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Birthdays, Baby Showers, or just because…

CALLING ALL MEN!!


"I searched for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand in the gap before Me for the land, so that I would not destroy it; but I found no one. (Ezekiel 22:30, NASB) As we watch the news and listen to political rhetoric, we see the world we know moving further and further away from the Bible truth that once made our country great. We as Christian men need to be godly leaders in our families, church and community. To help us be those godly men, we will be kicking off a monthly men’s breakfast where we can share with each other and talk about relevant issues facing us as Christian men. Our goal will be to have a great breakfast, share for a few minutes, and let you be on your way within 60-90 mins. Please plan to join us each month, starting in December (exact date & time TBA). If you have any specific ideas or questions, please see Bill Humphreys. Iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another. (Proverbs 27:17, NASB).


Our Seniors’ Ministry Christmas Potluck & BINGO is coming up on Saturday, December 9th in the Fellowship Hall.  Potluck starts at 1:00 pm and Bingo will start at 2:00 pm.  Bring a main dish, salad, soup, or dessert. Plates and drinks provided.  Please bring a wrapped white elephant gift as well (one per person) for bingo prizes. 


                                    Contact John Repar at 719-275-7056 for more information.


Women’s Sharing & Prayer Time at 6:30 pm

Monday, December 11th


Join us the 2nd Monday of the month and hear what God is doing in the lives of other women.  Be encouraged as we lift one another up in prayer.  Location TBA.

This fall we are excited to offer 2 different opportunities for you to get to know other couples and families in the church.  We encourage you to choose the one that works best for you and your family.


3 X 3 Dinners (3 months / 3 families) – similar to our 4 X 4 Dinners, just a little simpler to coordinate.  3 couples or families will get together, once each month for 3 months.


Sunday Afternoon Dinner Club – 2 individuals, families, or couples will get together on Sunday afternoon (or another time of your choosing).  You can go to a restaurant or to someone’s house.  The objective is that each month you have the opportunity to get together with a new individual, couple, or family.  Watch for more details in this month’s Sunday bulletins!...

--- Your Outreach Committee



4 x 4 Dinners consist of 4 CFF families getting together once a month to share a meal.  Your group of 4 families will take turns hosting the meal, and the other families help bring side dishes, dessert,  etc.  After 4 months, the groups will be re-shuffled and you will have the opportunity to get to know new families. Our first round of 4 x 4 Dinners started this month.  If you are interested in participating or would like more information, please    contact Phillis VanRiper at 719-269-1878.
