We are committed to providing safe and healthy gatherings, and will continue to lean into the wisdom of community leaders, church leaders, and professionals to help us make the best decision regarding the timings of gathering in person at Cucamonga Christian Fellowship.

FAQ'S ABOUT ONSITE GATHERINGS

The Staff and Leaders of CCF have been actively monitoring the situation surrounding COVID-19 concerns, and using the guidelines presented by both State and County officials in determining how to best serve our church family, and local community during this time.

LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR COVID-19 RESPONSE

While the months of March – July have seen us not meeting in person at Cucamonga Christian Fellowship, we have always been committed to creating opportunities to connect and experience God in life-changing ways. During the Californian stay-at-home order, and while the risk of illness was deemed high, that was best done in our homes, with friends and family participating online in Weekend Services and virtual Life Groups. We hope you will continue to choose to connect in one or both of these ways, and invite someone to join you!

While we all long to resume large gatherings in our building again, God’s wisdom and love require us to ask questions about how we can serve the majority of our people in the safest way possible, and at this moment we believe the answer to that question is continuing to primarily gather in our homes and online. Even so, the message of Jesus is advancing and through this unique season, for both our church and the Kingdom, God is reaching people that we have never been able to reach before,

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we move forward during these uncertain times. Until we can all meet together in person again, we pray that you will keep engaging firmly, giving generously, and inviting ferociously. We love each and every one of you and miss you dearly.
