CCLF Statement of Faith Proof #2

Wanted-300x201Real People. Real Problems. Real God. Real Answers. That’s the tagline of our video testimonies. It’s really who we are. We are casual people of a rural community navigating through life as ordinary people out to change their world through an extraordinary God living inside them.

Ministries at CCLF include a vibrant worship service with three separate worship teams blending a unique mix of classic worship hymns with contemporary songs of praise similar in style to artists such as David Crowder, Tim Hughes, Chris Tomlin and many Vineyard motifs and lately the Rend Collective Experiment.

Hiedi Mack is on staff as the Children’s Pastor and leads a dynamic Children’s ministry called Kingdom Kids and she sees kids as smaller containers of the same Holy Spirit adults have – they don’t get a Junior Holy Spirit.

Carter Froese is the Youth Pastor & leads Kingdom Youth, and meets at the Church (outgrew the Rock) every Wednesday night. There is an established girls group as well on Thursday nights for high school girls, and an up and coming young guns group for the guys.

Pastor Rick leads our Band of Brothers men’s ministry which is championed as well by many men in the church. We are definitely a ‘man-friendly’ church and quite intentional about that.

An awesome Ladies ministry also takes place on a seasonal basis through weekly Bible studies, retreats and outreach events.

Our Associate Pastor of Community Development, Gary Forsyth, brings cutting edge thinking to our outreach events, newcomers nights and generally shouldering the pastoral load with Pastor Rick.

There are compassion ministries that occur also seasonally as we give to the poor and do outreaches in bigger centers like Kamloops or Vancouver. This also includes an inter-church Community Christmas Dinner that we host for the low income families of our community.

We also have John and Cynthia Noble on staff as missionaries to the Cariboo-Chilcotin through what we call Cariboo Christian Outreach plus we are connected relationally to several Messianic congregations in Israel and have found that as we bless Israel, so we are blessed.

Various  home Bible Studies we call LifeGroups take place on various nights and are always an awesome safe place for practicing our personal gifts, growing in community together by spurring one another on to love and good deeds, and for practical caring to take place.

Overall there are numerous opportunities to plug in and get connected with people at CCLF whether it’s making coffee for our transitional time between the services, running sound for the services, cuing up the powerpoint, hosting a bible study in your home… the list goes on.
They say that in many Christian circles, the people who know the most, do the least, and the people that know the least do the most. Not at CCLF. We all pitch in. We’re all equal at the foot of the cross, and we all have to discover, develop and deploy our spiritual gifts in light of what He has done for us. That’s called “grace-driven effort” and that’s what we want to be about.
