We greatly appreciate your prayers during this pastoral transition at CEFC. We are excited to see God continue to work through the various ministries and relationships of CEFC, and look forward to what He has in store for the future! 

Scroll down to see the latest Pastoral Search updates, and to see how you can be included in our upcoming church photo directory!

Pastoral search team update

- Thank you to all who planned, served, and attended the various events during Candidating Weekend! We're so glad that this weekend was not the finish line - it's just the beginning of the next chapter that God has planned for CEFC, and we look forward to following His leading!


- Immediately following this Sunday morning’s Worship Service (October 15th) we will have a congregational vote about calling Larry Lloyd as the next Senior Pastor of CEFC. If you have children in the nursery, please pick them up after the service so that our nursery volunteers are able to participate in this vote. This “Yes/No” vote is limited to CEFC members. Thank you! 

CEFC photo directory

It is time to compile our new church directory! Church photo directories are especially helpful in times of Pastoral transition. If you consider CEFC to be your church home, then we want YOU included.

Below is the link to the Google form for submitting your contact information (click on the link to be redirected.)  If you don’t want certain information included in the directory, then please leave those lines blank on the form.

Google Link:

If you are unable to use the link above to the Google form and would prefer a hard copy of this form, they are available on the back table in the Worship Center.

Please email a photo to and include the names of the people in the photo. The directory software crops photos into a square, so some horizontal photos might crop people out. If this happens, we will email you and ask you to submit a different photo.

If you do not have a photo to submit or are unable to, there will be an opportunity to have your picture taken in the foyer for the next three Sundays after the service.

If you have any questions or issues, please contact Mandy Hall at

We would like to have all information submitted by Sunday, October 15th.

Thank you so much!
