Administrative History

The support was not continuous until 1978 when the congregation was officially chartered as the Community Christian Fellowship with 12 charter members. The congregation met in family homes and rented facilities. The congregation struggled after the Geddert family relinquished the leadership position in 1982–1983. In 1989 the congregation disbanded.

The leaders of the congregation were: Maryanne and Roland Balzer (1974–1976, 1984–1988), Bertha and Tim Geddert (1978–1982), Peggy and Dennis Voth (1983, 1989).
