New Pathways class on Missions (Missions) http://ift.tt/1r77ePL New Pathways class on Missions
Come help us kick off this new Pathways class that’s sure to ignite your interest in missions! This new class will be held along with the other Pathways classes on Sunday, July 20 from 1:00-3:30, with lunch being provided. What a fun way to learn more about missions and CCoF’s role in carrying out the Great Commission!

Taking this class will increase your awareness of God’s heart for the nations, and how His Gospel is being taken to the ends of the earth, both now and since the book of Acts. We’ll explore the Biblical mandate for missions, the historical perspective, and the “unfinished task”. The class will also introduce you to the missions program at CCoF, the partners we support, and opportunities for engagement.

Please register during this coming weekend’s services using the bulletin insert, or send an email to the Director of Missions by Friday, July 18. Hope to see you there!

Check out these upcoming mission trips! (Missions) http://ift.tt/1xcRpcW Check out these upcoming mission trips!
There are two great opportunities remaining this year for you to serve on a short-term mission trip! You can register for either trip, as well as see what trips have already been scheduled for 2015, by clicking here.

September 27: Stretch yourself!
imageJoin others from CCoF to bring love, hope, and encouragement to the street people of Winslow. The goal of this 1-day trip is to obey Christ’s command to love one another by showering blessings on those who find it difficult to break patterns and addictions, and find themselves living off the streets. Individuals who have a heart for serving the less fortunate are needed to help us prepare and serve a hearty breakfast and make our guests feel honored and welcomed through conversation and prayer. If you can lead singing, play guitar, share your testimony or give a brief imagedevotion, cut hair, or give manicures or pedicures, we need you!

The ministry we’re partnering with has been working with Winslow’s street people for ten years, and has gained their trust and respect. The transparency and openness of the street people may surprise you, as will their stories. We want to respectfully show the love of Christ to these individuals through tangible means as well as fellowship.

Team size is limited, and you must register by September 19. Come bring hope and allow Jesus’s light to shine through you in Winslow! Cost for this trip is only $10 per person/maximum $25 per family.

November 7-9: A different camp experience
imageA great way for families, neighborhood groups or individuals to have a weekend of fun, great fellowship and service to our partners in Christ, is to join us as we serve at the United Christian Youth Camp in Prescott. We team up with the staff of UCYC to spruce up the camp and do whatever needs doing: landscaping, clean-up, painting, building repair, or light construction. We have a need for skilled tradesmen, but there are plentiful opportunities for non-skilled people of all ages. This is a family-friendly trip, and if you can’t come for the entire 3 days, no problem – come and serve when you can.

imageUCYC provides the food and housing, all we do is bring a smile, a willingness to work, and a servant’s heart. And did we mention we’ll also have time to participate in some of the camp’s fun recreational activities!

What a tremendous opportunity for adults, youth, and children to work shoulder-to-shoulder and give back to an organization that has always provided a wonderful Christian camp experience for so many of our kids! Cost for this trip is only $10 per person/maximum $25 per family, and you must register by October 31.
Young Adult Global Gathering 2015 (Students) http://ift.tt/V4NdOG Young Adult Global Gathering 2015
Today is a day of connection. Our world has been officially globalized and in many ways people across the world are far more connected to each other than was ever possible 25 years ago. With the internet, pop-culture, social media, Skype, cell phones, and even video games we are experiencing a time of global consciousness.

So how does that change us? How can a Christian take hold of this opportunity? What would it look like to make a real, global impact? Thanks to one of our missions partners we have a chance to be a part of something they are trying to address these kinds of questions.

For almost 30 years CCoF has partnered with Amor Ministries to reach out and build homes for people a world away from us. Now they are offering something new and it is very exciting: “The Global Gathering.” An 8 day long experience where students will get the chance to collaborate together in learning and developing ways to tackle global issues. Poverty, human trafficking, and sustainable technology are some examples of topics. During the day we will get the opportunity to engage in local outreach, sports outreach, healing in the streets(what!?,) evangelism, and community health outreach. In the evening there will be a conference session involving time in the Bible, worship, and discussion.

We are inviting a handful of young people from ages 15-25 to consider joining us for this Global Gathering that will take place in YUCATAN, MEXICO on January 3-10, 2015. Please click here for their official site and please contact Garrett Shelp if you or anyone you know would like to be step up for this opportunity of global proportions.

30 days of prayer for the Muslim world (Missions) http://ift.tt/1ih9VO1 30 days of prayer for the Muslim world
An international prayer focus since 1993, the 30 Days of Prayer guide calls as many Christians as possible to pray for the Muslim world. This prayer emphasis is set each year to coincide with the dates of Ramadan, a time of fasting meant to purify the soul, refocus attention on God, and practice self-sacrifice. As Muslims are focusing on seeking God during this month (June 28 – July 27), it’s an important time for followers of Christ to be praying that God will speak to and move in their lives.

The purpose of the guide is to “inspire and guide each reader as they plead for Muslims before the throne of the Almighty.” Each day of reading will introduce you to a different Muslim people group or country, and allow you to pray for their needs.

A limited number of the prayer guides are available at the Information Center (one per family please).

The month of Ramadan is always a stressful time for our partners who work in Muslim countries, but it also opens doors for spiritual discussions. Pray that our partners in West Africa, North Africa, and the Middle East would have the opportunity to share the truth of Christ during this important month with those who practice Islam.
