Whether you are a new student at the Army War College or assigned to one of the other military installations in the greater Carlisle area, we are glad you are here and we appreciate your service to our country.  

At CEFC, we recognize that military families have unique needs. Military life is transient and that is particularly true if you are here as a War College student. Our goal at CEFC is to partner with you to make the most of your time here in Carlisle, both spiritually and professionally.

We know many of you will be in Carlisle for a short time and want to find a place to worship and get connected quickly. To help with that, we host an annual welcome and orientation event in August just for you! It is a great way to meet our staff, learn about our ministries for kids and students, understand who we are and what we believe, find opportunities to get connected through a Life Group or OCF Bible Study, and find ways to use your gifts and talents to serve the Lord in Carlisle.

We have a long history of great relationships with military members and families. We love that so many military members have been a part of our story and we hope we can be a part of yours as well!

From all of us at CEFC, we look forward to getting to know you better and pray the Lord blesses you as you settle into your new home here in Carlisle.
