A Warm Welcome to All

Please join us for worship Sundays at 10:30 am. We offer childcare and Sunday School for all ages and welcome all to our lively Coffee Hour following the service. Here’s what’s happening in the life of our congregation:

Federal Workers: Appreciation & Support, 3/26—If you work for the federal government or an organization that contracts with the federal government, this may be a difficult time for you, both professionally and personally. We appreciate your work! Join Pastor Ellen after worship for conversation and support as we gear up for the months (and years) ahead. ALL are welcome!

Dinner and a Movie, 3/31—When a reporter meets a talented but homeless musician, he thinks he’s found a great story.  Instead, the musician has real hopes and demons, and changing his life will be a challenge for them both.  We’ll talk about stories, demons, and doing good.  The Soloist (2009) stars Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey Jr.  Simple supper at 6:30 pm and film at 7 pm. Please sign up in the parlor or at sack@rcn.com by Wednesday, 3/29.

Coffee Hour Conversation: Transgender in These Times, 4/2—LJ Ingram, Chair of our local UCC LGBTQ Task Force and a transgender woman, will lead us in a discussion about transgender issues.  She’ll share stories from her personal journey and suggest a variety of ways that we, as allies, can support and advocate for transgender individuals in our churches, schools, workplace and world.

Maundy Thursday Service, 4/13—Join us for a 7:00 pm service of Communion and Tenebrae (Latin for “shadows,” in honor of Christ’s Passion).  This Holy Week Service will bring us together to celebrate Jesus’s Last Supper and New Commandment (“Love One Another”) and to commemorate his death at Calvary.  If you’d like to read one of the parts in the Passion Story, please email: pastor@cpcchurch.org.

Good Friday Vigil, 4/14—We’ll gather at 1:00 pm for a vigil that includes meditation to the powerful tones of the gong at 1, 2 and 3 pm.   There will be scripture readings and periods of silent meditation in between.  You are welcome to participate in all or any part of the vigil.

Poetry Hour, 4/23Please join us and invite a friend, from 4:00-5:00 pm in the Church Parlor. Bring one or two poems on Nature to read along with hard copies to share with others. RSVP to Le Rowell at lerowell@aol.com.
