Covid Reopening information for the CFC website as of August 10, 2020 
Greetings!

We hope you are doing well. We miss seeing our church and cannot wait until we all gather in-person, but we want to take the proper measures to ensure the physical well-being for all who attend CFC. Each attendee’s safety is important to our church. The staff and CFC Covid-19 Reopening Group are working to take the best course of action for our church as we follow the guidelines of the CDC, CUPHD, IDPH, and the locations that we rent from. Currently, all of our prayer meetings and services are online. You can find information about health and safety protocol in regards to Covid and updates on our church’s programming below. You are all in our thoughts and our prayers!
