Ministries & Teams

The working groups which are called committees or boards in many churches are called Ministries at CFC to emphasize that the work we do is a vital part of the ministry of our church. 

Emphasizing the work of an empowered laity (in addition to the work of the clergy) has been an historic strength of our congregation. Each of the Ministries is also represented on Diaconate.
