What to Expect

So, you’d like to visit us?

We’d love to have you stop by! We think you’ll find CBFC a warm, inviting place, full of people just like you. Just regular folks, wanting to know more of God.  


What if I’m not used to going to church? 

Not a problem. We love to have visitors who just want to “try out” church. You don’t have to have a “church background.” Just come, listen to the music, hear what’s being said, and see what you think. You won’t have to stand and say anything or sing a solo! You’ll find you are among friendly people.  


Where do I park? 

The parking lot is behind the building, off Bitting Alley, next to the big water tower. (See more specific directions click here)


What should I wear? 

There’s no dress code. Most people are pretty casual. You’ll see some people in jeans. Some prefer to dress up a bit. You’ll see a guy or two wearing ties. Or maybe not! It’s mostly casual.


What are the worship services like? 

The Bible calls believers in Jesus “children of God” (John 1:12), so a worship service is, in a sense, the family of God meeting together to be with Him. Family gatherings are usually fun and informal, aren’t they? Our services are pretty informal, too. We sing contemporary-style praise songs, accompanied by a praise band. You may hear a familiar old hymn now and then, too. Sometimes people may share stories of how God has been working in their lives. And we devote a good bit of time to hearing from God: Pastor Jim teaches from the Bible in an easy-to-grasp style, often using graphics on a screen to make the teaching clear and applicable. 


Is there a nursery?

Yes. We have a staffed nursery that’s clean and safe. 


What about programs for kids? 

We have a lot to offer children! During the service, parents have the option of sending their children downstairs for “Junior Church” classes during the sermon time. On Wednesday nights, CBFC offers exciting programs for children and teens.
