FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions
Here’s a set of questions we are frequently asked.
Does CCF belong to a denomination?
CCF does not belong to a denomination, but is an elder-led body. Please consult our leadership page for an explanation of this structure. We value our network with other churches in the area and are eager to partner in activities across denominations.
Where does the church hold worship services?
The church holds Sunday services at the Edmonds Center for the Arts (410 4th Ave N, Edmonds). The ECA is a beautiful 700 seat auditorium that is used for concerts and community activities throughout the week, but is our worship center on Sundays and for special services. The church uses the CCF-owned Ministry Center for all other mid-week activities. The Ministry Center is immediately across the street from the Edmonds Center for the Arts at 615 Glen Street.
What should I wear to church?
We are a diverse bunch with a mixture of people in jeans and a fleece, others in khakis and a dress shirt, sprinkled with the occasional Seahawks jersey or sports coat. You’ll fit in fine however you are dressed!
What kind of children’s programs are available on Sundays?
A quality group of staff and volunteers provide a safe and caring environment for the children. Additionally, we take their safety and security very seriously. We have a clear drop off/pick up policy for all children, as well as a security team who patrol the Ministry Center all morning. During the worship services there is Nursery care for Infants and Walkers, as well as classes for Preschoolers and Elementary age kids.
On the first Sunday of each month, children in kindergarten through 6th grade join their parents in “big church” as an opportunity to learn first-hand what worship, prayer, and hearing God’s word is all about. We take communion during this service and consider the presence of the kids with us trying to “engage” everyone as we worship and learn together.
If you are visiting for the first time, we recommend arriving at 10:15 to check your kids into our secure children’s activities.
What is the worship style at CCF?
CCF music is of a modern style and is led by musicians from within our body. Our style is similar to what you might hear on a popular radio station. CCF embraces modern worship songs, as well as hymns and praise songs from the past. We seek to embrace worship that brings generations together and helps the younger and older seek God together.
Check our our CCF MUSIC page to hear live recordings from our services.
About how many attend CCF?
Currently about 300 attend our worship services with another 90 in the children’s programs.
