God invites each of us to have an impact in our community and the world.
The Bible tells us that “God so loved the world” (John 3:16) and we get to be the hands and feet of Jesus, showing them His love!
We do this through serving and sharing with others.
At CCF we call this activity Community Impact , or c-Impact.
We define c-Impact as: “Using our time, resources, and experiences to build up the church and minister to the world.”
Clearly stated in the definition, we value service that builds up the church, and ministers to the world. The language and images we often use are “out arrows” (activities that reach out to our community or the world) and “in arrows” (activity that builds up the church), and Both are necessary and we encourage both equally.
Below are a few “out arrows” opportunities that are thriving right now. Included on their page is contact information if you would like to know more information.
Everett Food Bank (partnering with Volunteers of America)
Good Neighbors Ministry: Displaced People/Refugees/Immigrants (partnering with World Relief)
Partnerships with local and global ministries
