Description

WELCOME      Sunday service starts @ 10:00 AM, with adult and children's Sunday School classes beforehand @ 9:15, we hope to see you there! The small building in the village of Mansfield Depot originated as a meeting room originally known as the Union Chapel Society in the late 1800s, then became Second Baptist Church of Mansfield, and then later changed to Eber Dunham Memorial Church based on a trust fund. Philip Jerome Cleveland, a minister from Canterbury, had a burden for opening small closed churches in the area. He came once a month and opened these churches including what in 1973 came to be known as Mansfield Christian Fellowship on the third Sunday of the month. His son, Bruce Cleveland became weekly pastor in the 1950s. Following Pastor Cleveland, Bruce Robinson headed the church and it was during that year, 1962, that a 26 year-old David Ferrero visited the church for the first time. There he met his then-future wife, Joan, who grew up in Mansfield Depot and had started a children’s program at the church as well as serving in the music ministry. More than 50 years later, Joan continues to lead the music ministry and children’s school each Sunday. This summer marks Pastor David Ferrero’s 50th year at Mansfield Christian Fellowship. MCF is an undenominational church with a similar style to a home group church, in that their Sunday service consists of informal sharing among members, hymns and choruses, as well as teaching by David.
