PULSE OF THE PARISH

Gospel Play- Fulfilling Our Congregational Baptismal Vow

Don't you love seeing all the children at church? You can grow them in their faith and their place in our church family!  Fr. Craig and Erin MacDonald invite CCA members to help our children mature in their lives in Christ through Gospel Play. Gospel Play is a fun way to teach the faith.  Below is a link to one of the videos Fr. Joe Gasbarre (our previous Associate Priest) did on gospel play during Covid. Wouldn't it be fun to be a part of this with our children? See the attached document Erin prepared to give you a summary of Gospel Play.  She will help anyone learn how to lead or assist.

LIFE TOGETHER

Women's Renew
Saturday, November 12, 9:30 AM, The Whitefield Center


How wonderful would it be if Jesus came to our homes for a meal as he often did with people in scripture? Sharing thoughts and conversation around the table allows for deeper conversation and relationships. With those things in mind, Renew has a new format and location. Please come to the Whitefield Center and join other women in small groups around a table for food and thoughtful fellowship. We will look at scripture where Jesus visited in peoples homes for a meal and discuss the scriptures and application to our lives. 

Contact: Louise Mehl if you have any questions!

Can we take your picture . . . PLEASE?
Quick Photography Sessions in the Nave Every Sunday in November!
9:15 - 10 AM& Noon - 1:30 PM- Meet Valerie in front of the Altar



As we transition to a new database, we would love the opportunity to get a quick picture of EACH family/person in our congregation. Plan to either arrive early or stay late to get a quick shot taken. We will do our best to make this as fun & quick as possible! Our goal is to have full participation from the congregation, so please make plans to be photo ready…but do not stress, God made you beautiful!!! However, showering before church is always a nice goal ;)


Community Groups = Fun for Everyone!

As a growing congregation, we are thrilled to offer several opportunities to dig deep & plant roots by joining a community group. Every group is different - and that is what is pretty amazing about these groups. There is no one size fits all…but you are bound to find a group that meets your needs in your season of life. Groups vary in size and location, with some meeting weekly and others meeting bi-weekly. We encourage you to review the list of community groups and reach out to a community group leader to learn more about that specific group! Need assistance with finding a group or do not know where to start?

Reach out to Valerie Hanks via email, she is happy to help!

MISSION


Praying for SAMS* . . . not Sam's Club
Society of Anglican Missionaries and Senders*

As a congregation during Prayers of the People on Sundays, we are invited to rotate our focus each month to highlight a specific ministry or ministries that represent our core values as a body of believers. During the month of November our corporate prayers during worship will invite a focus on SAMS (Society of Anglican Missionaries and Senders) and Janine LeGrand, a SAMS missionary who has been mentoring our very own Cathy Clevenger (CCA member) who is now a SAMS missionary in Uganda! It is amazing how God knits us together so beautifully all over the world! Please take a moment to learn more about how God is using SAMS, Janine LeGrand and Cathy Clevenger to participate in the Great Commission.
 
SAMS website, which has a wonderful newsletter you can sign up for to learn more!

All Saints' Day

Almighty God, you have knit together your elect in one communion and fellowship in the mystical Body of your Son: Give us grace so to follow your blessed saints in all virtuous and godly living, that we may come to those ineffable joys that you have prepared for those who truly love you; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, in glory everlasting.  Amen.
