Christ's Church for Our Community is a distinctive Faith-Based Organization that considers our formation strategically devoted to fostering inter-organizational partnerships and collaborations that transcend any sectarian restrictions. While many faith-based organizations focus solely on worship and other religious purposes, CCFOC was founded as an externally focused organization dedicated to outreach.
