CCF Summary

Founded in 1982, CCF is a non-denominational church located in Edmonds, Washington.  It is home to roughly 200 families and has an average weekly attendance of 300. There are about 40 students in the youth group.  CCF is very much a family-oriented church. Our Senior Pastor, Brian Boone, has been with us for fourteen years and he is the fourth pastor in the church’s history.

 

Our Student Ministry serves 7th – 12th graders who are primarily from families attending CCF and is supported by a group of adult and student volunteers.  Sunday evening gatherings are the foundation of Student Ministries and include worship, games, and teaching. These are supplemented by periodic social events and retreats meant to foster community and provide opportunity to welcome friends from outside the church.  For the past nine summers, teams of students have gone to Nicaragua for a one-week mission trip, which has been a meaningful time of spiritual growth and relationship building for the participants.

 

CCF is a Bible-believing church seeking to live out faith anchored in Christ in our modern-day lives. The church is a very loving and willing group of people who genuinely want to follow Jesus.   Our current mission statement is “Engaging all generations to fully rely on God every day.” We are in the process of discerning God’s heart for our future and articulating that through a new vision statement.
