Summer Greetings~

I’m on vacation this week and just wanted to share the following beautiful and thought-provoking poem by Mary Oliver:


The Summer Day

Who made the world?

the one who has flung herself out of the grass,
the one who is eating sugar out of my hand,
who is moving her jaws back and forth, instead of up and down—
who is gazing around with her enormous and complicated eyes. CONTINUE READING

Summertime …

We meet for worship every Sunday morning at 10:30 am, with special activities offered for children. Summer is a wonderful season to visit and get to know our congregation. You might even experience one of our “curbside coffee hours,” a sunny summer Sunday tradition …

Upcoming Events include:

Habitat for Humanity Youth Mission Trip, 6/28-7/4— Eight CPC teens (and two adult leaders) will travel to West Virginia with seventy other UCC Potomac Association youth and chaperones to spend a week building homes for low-income residents. CONTINUE READING
