Join us for Vespers this Wednesday evening. During Advent Vespers, we'll be hearing from some of our devotion writers as we talk about their stories and how they’re celebrating Advent this year. This week we'll talk with Matt Gabbard. You can find us live on our YouTube channel at 7 p.m this Wednesday. Light a candle along with us as we pray together and remember that we're not alone. Watch the Stream on Youtube.
Join us for a prayer meeting via Zoom as we share requests and pray for our family of faith and our community. You'll find the Zoom link at the top of each of our newsletters. If you need help, please email Aaron (email@example.com).
Ways to support our church and mission partners this winter
Join us as we celebrate Advent this year in new ways, remembering the presence of Christ who continues to lead us into hope, peace, joy, and love.
Advent is such an important time in the life of our congregation. We get to experience all the garland and decorations. We learn about the chrismons hanging on the tree. And we get to see the light as it grows week to week.
While originally geared to those of the Baby Boomer generation, the group welcomes participation by folks of any age. Formed as a social and service group, the Baby Boomers regularly meet for lunch, visiting local attractions and historical sites, as well as volunteering at God’s Pantry. During this time of not doing in person activities, the CBC Baby Boomers are staying in touch via Zoom meetings at 11 a.m. on the first and third Thursday of each month and the second Thursday of the month at 7 p.m. For more information, contact Pat Ingram (firstname.lastname@example.org).
This week we will think about courage and the courage it takes to wait. On the heels of the 50th Earth Day, we will also consider creation and our place in God's diverse and beloved community of life. Thanks to Lelia Midkiff for providing the beautiful watercolor above.
Normalcy seems to be an idea of the past. Why are we here and what are we to do? These questions are central to the biblical story as well as our current situation. This Sunday, we look back at the work of God through the people in exile. Their isolation and uncertainty are felt by us, and their hope for restoration can help us shape a promising future. Join us this week for a message from Charles Conkin.
Join us from your computers, tablets, phones, and televisions as we celebrate even in the midst of shadows. The image above is a painting by our own Charlotte Blaydes. She started painting during our watercolor workshop last fall and has already created this beautiful work. While we may be apart, we can still find little hopes and joys scattered about like a bright red cardinal or an evening stroll. This week during our prayer time, we'll invite our children to draw pictures of things they are grateful for.
