34 years ago CEFC began reaching out to its local community from a nursing home in Carlisle. As we grew, God moved us to a high school auditorium in Boiling Springs, and then to our current location on Petersburg Rd. Over those many years, this church has continued reaching out...to our friends, our co-workers, to those who don't know Christ. Through that work, we've seen God do incredible things. We have renewed our focus of serving our community, and now it’s time to take our next step.
As many of you know, we have been praying as a church about the most effective way to reach more people in our valley with the gospel of Jesus. We want to take what God is doing through our Carlisle campus and extend it to another local community.
We believe launching a multi-site campus is our next step.
A message from Pastor Shad about Multi-site @ CEFC
What is a multi-site church?
A multi-site church is one church meeting in multiple locations sharing the same vision, leadership, and budget.
What about Worship? Our new campus will be launched with it's own live worship leader and team.
What about the message/sermon? Much like our current 9:00 AM Gathering service, the message will be broadcast via video from the Worship Center each Sunday morning. Occasionally, the campus pastor will give the message.
What about children’s ministry? Yes, we will have an active, vibrant Kids Cove ministry at our new site.
Why is CEFC launching a multi-site location?
We want to reach people, different types of people, including those who are far from God. Having a campus in another community helps us to reach more people for Christ and encourage them to live out our vision of all of life for Christ.
What are the advantages of a multi-site church?
Helps us reach friends and family who are unable to drive a great distance to church.
Brings together the best parts of a larger church and smaller church.
Creates opportunities for people in the church to serve in lots of different ways.
