Our Mission: We are servants of God by serving others. We share a responsibility to bring God's love to hurting people. We are a Christian Mission Outreach dedicated to showing people, through our teaching, actions and love, the life changing power of Jesus Christ.


“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.

If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good things anyway.

Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.

For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”

-Kent M. Keith

“Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure.” - Paulo Coelho

“The real things haven't changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures; and have courage when things go wrong.” - Laura Ingalls Wilder

With the financial help of our worldwide Mission Partners, volunteers from Cancun Christian Fellowship were able to provide eggs, cheese, chorizo, molida especial, pork, salchicha, chicken, cereal and cakes to our Cancun Christian home. With your assistance, groceries are purchased and delivered every week.

“Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters” - Albert Einstein

Laurie is now in charge of our FaceBook updates and activity and Ryan is learning the fundamentals of our Sunday worship. Ryan will be producing this Sunday’s service. Please thank the Lipps for accepting additional responsibility in our church.

“Friends are honest with each other, even if the truth hurts.” - Sarah Dessen

Additionally, Laurie is doing great things with the Children’s Sunday School class. We are looking for a backup for Laurie and, if you have the compassion, Laurie would love to talk to you.

“Living with integrity means: Not settling for less than what you know you deserve in your relationships. Asking for what you want and need from others. Speaking your truth, even though it might create conflict or tension. Behaving in ways that are in harmony with your personal values. Making choices based on what you believe, and not what others believe.” - Barbara De Angelis

We continue to talk about stepping up and belonging to the church instead of simply attending the church. Below are opportunities that currently need to be filled:
• Backup for Tom at the men’s group
• Backup for Cherilyn at church
• Backup for Cherilyn at the women’s groups
• Backup for Katherine
• Backup for Laurie
• Backup for Jean and George
• Sunday Service Greeters
• Sunday Prayer Leaders
• Leaders to offer CCF Small Groups for couples and singles

“Honesty is the most heroic quality one can aspire to.” - Daniel Radcliffe

We are blessed with guests attending our Sunday Service. Last week, we had seven guests and the fellowship was excellent. We can never forget that our guest have a choice of how they spend their Sunday morning in Cancun.

“If we are not ashamed to think it, we should not be ashamed to say it.” - Marcus Tullius Cicero

Mark and Laura Shook will be presenting our worship lesson this Sunday….a continuation of the series on “Homefield Advantage”. We have previewed the lesson and we feel you will find it very beneficial. We hope to see all of you this Sunday.

“Never do anything that you can't admit doing, because if you are that ashamed of whatever it is, it's probably wrong.” - Ashly Lorenzana

This week’s pre-church fishing video will feature the Flip Pallot, host of the Walker’s Cay Chronicles. Join Flip as he fishes the beautiful waters off Bermuda. As always, there is enough fishing action to please even the diehard angler. Join us at 9:25 AM, relax and enjoy the show.

“Never separate the life you lead from the words you speak.” - Paul Wellstone
