Serve Your City

Just as Jesus looked with compassion on others and was moved to action, our desire is to follow Him in sharing our hearts and time in practical ways to bless our city. We take a portion of our Community Compassion Benevolence Fund to support agencies and ministries that are in our city caring for the people of Columbia in specialized ways. Many of these ministries have actually been birthed from within Christian Fellowship.

We encourage you to look over the following ministries and see if there is a ministry that you would like to partner with, either through volunteering or by giving financially.
