CCFC 101 Class
Whether you're new and want to learn more about CCFC, or if you consider CCFC your church home and you’re on board with our vision, you're invited to take CCFC 101! This is a great opportunity to get to know the church better and is also a prerequisite for becoming a member. Learn more about becoming a CCFC member below.
Our next class will be offered in fall 2017. For more info or to be notified when the class date is announced, email admin [at] ccfc-church.org.
Becoming a CCFC Member
CCFC 101 classes, which are pre-requisites to becoming a member, are offered periodically (usually during the fall and spring, sometimes in the summer depending on interest) will give you an opportunity to learn about CCFC and to interact with the pastors and board of the church. It can also be a great opportunity to meet other people who are new to CCFC or newly considering membership at the church.
Why do people become members of a church? The short answer is because being a part of a local church community is an important element of our lives as followers of Jesus. By definition the Body of Christ is a community; we're not meant to follow Jesus alone.
Right, but why membership specifically? The biggest difference between being a member of a church and not being a member is the level of commitment between you and your church (in this case, CCFC). As a visitor, you can come and go without expectation -- but also without deep opportunities for service, leadership, and discipleship. As a member of a church, you are choosing to say "this is the community in which and with which I will serve, give, and grow in my Christian life." Some other "benefits" of being a member include the opportunity to be a ministry leader and to receive reimbursements for counseling.
- If I come to the classes, am I committed? No. During the process, you will have time to pray and discern if becoming a member is the next step for you in your life at CCFC. Coming to the classes is a prerequisite for becoming a member, but you don't have to become a member if you take the classes.
- What if I'm brand new to the church? You're welcome in the classes, and you're welcome to become a member!
A couple of membership requirements that you should know beforehand: you can't be a member of more than one church (so if you're currently a member at another church, you'll need to rescind membership). Also, members must be baptized, but this can be done later on. Finally, you must attend the full CCFC 101 class in order to become a member.
If you have any other questions, you can contact the Church Administrator here.
We hope you will consider joining us as members of CCFC!
