TODAY IS FAMILY SUNDAY!

On the fourth Sunday of the month, we encourage our families to worship together. Parents, please encourage your child(ren) to be a part of the service by: standing and singing during worship, giving in the offering, participating when appropriate, and listening during the message.

Dear CRFC Family,

We are a family and we care for each other. We know that when one member grieves, we all share the burden. We lift our hearts together in prayer for Mark and Jackie McFetridge after Mark’s accident.

We are putting together a support team to assist Mark and Jackie with tasks around their home and living essentials. To plan our support, we will have a meeting in the Prayer Room, room 301, at 10:00 am today.

Here are areas where help is needed:

  • LAWN CARE: mowing, trimming, snow removal in winter
  • GROCERY SHOPPING
  • CARING & ENCOURAGEMENT: visiting for short periods of time
  • HOUSE CLEANING: dusting and vacuuming
  • MEAL ASSISTANCE
  • PHYSICAL FACILITY: building an entrance ramp, handicap accessible restroom, etc... 

Please prayerfully consider how you can help show love and support to provide any assistance and bless Mark and Jackie. Please contact Faye Schultz, (319) 931-3542 or faye@crfamily.org, if you are unable to attend the meeting or for more information.
