Ester Wiens

Dear Church Family,  

We have some very exciting news to share! We would like to welcome Ester Wiens as our new Church Administrator. Ester will officially start new Tuesday, April 27, 2020.  We also want to thank Patti Smith, more than words can adequately express, for her work in keeping the office running during this time without any other staff person. We truly value what you have done!!! 

Having a full-time administrator will enable us to establish regular office hours as well as taking some the administration duties from being the responsibility of the deacons. It will enable the board to more fully focus on the next task for finding the right Interim Pastor to lead us through this time of uncertainty and transition. We continue to wait to hear back from the Fellowship Office with some suggestions. We ask that you would pray with us for just the right person to have the time availability, the right giftings and abilities, and to be made known to us. 

As our giving is down, our bookkeeper is looking into applying for the government program that would cover some of or wages during this time.  We also ask that as you are able you would continue to support the church financially as most of the expenses and support of missionaries remains the same during this time. You can mail in cheques, drop off cheques at the church office, set up automatic payments through the church office, or e-transfer donations to [email protected].

We continue to meet virtually with our sister church, Northstar Church, in Quesnel for services on Sunday mornings at 10:00 am at Northstar Church. The login link is also posted on our website.

Following the service at 11:00 am, we also have a Zoom meeting where we can come together as a church family to share and pray together. Go to to download the free version of the software.  Then simply click on the link in the invitation that will be sent.  If you do not have Microsoft Office, you can simply enter the meeting ID 719 551 335 and you are in or just click on the link, CFBC Zoom Meeting and you are in.

And finally, we are still reaching out to all of you who make up our church family. We would also welcome any contact that any of you would like to make with us. Our individual contact information is:
