Hello Church! I just can’t stop being inspired by our congregation and the opportunities that God has planned for our present and future. Thanks to our rich history and our faithful founders we have so many ways we can share the love of Christ with those who surround us as we offer a place to connect to God’s grace and to the body of Christ and extend support to those in need.
Exciting news is that our re-designed web site is now live on the internet. Thank you to those who have already visited, we hope you come back for more and that this will be a valuable electronic meeting place for all. Thank you also for your suggestions and comments as we continue to edit and expand. Huge thanks to Jana Kidd and her Outreach team in making our new web site a reality.
This Sunday we are diving into the fall season with gusto as we reflect together on the words of the prophet Jeremiah from 31:1-7; 27-34 as we sing with joy and we dance and are glad so that we might refresh the weary and help the faint. I look forward to greeting you all in worship!
The Fellowship Committee along with our deacons and elders are putting the finishing touches on our grand celebration, “Vintage Vegas” which will feature rat pack era music, delicious cuisine, games and entertainment and a “quickie wedding chapel” complete with The King himself! You can still get discounted tickets on our web site or on the church patio this Sunday.
As we enter the 4th quarter of the year – wow, right? – our Nominations Committee will be working on inviting individuals from our congregation to consider serving in leadership roles as an elder or deacon. Elders and Deacons serve for three year terms and help shape the governance and mission of our church. We will include more information in the coming weeks. Please contact Elder Diane Roper at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be considered or have a suggestion for others to be considered.
Our Connect Table is always open before and after worship where you will find great opportunities for involvement. If you are planning to join us for an Angel Game and tailgating on September 15, get your ticket at the Connect Table – they are hot!
In His Service,
Rev. Lissa Smith and the CHPC Staff
