Sunday School Kick-Off Breakfast: September 10
A new year of classes and activities to nurture, educate, and inspire all ages at CHPC will get underway on Sunday, September 10, with the annual Sunday School Kick-Off Breakfast. Children, teens, adults are invited to gather at 9:45 AM in Henry Young Hall. Sunday school teachers will introduce plans for classes and activities for every group from young children through adults. Come hear what’s in store for you and your family, and enjoy a full breakfast before worship.

Beginning Sunday, September 17:

Infants and Toddlers (birth to 2) can go to the Nursery, front building, main floor, Room 203 (next to Choir Room) where care and stories will be offered.

Children’s Choir Time: Children (ages 3-5th grade) will start the day in the Choir Room (front building, Room 202) with Debbie Dierks at 9:45 AM for Children’s Choir time, then go to their Sunday school classes. They’ll be preparing songs to sing in worship regularly this year.

September Adult Sunday School class will begin with Mark and Barbara Barnes leading a class “Exploring Compassion” on September 17 through October 8. The class elements will include writings from the Bible and from other faith traditions, recent scientific research on compassion and the brain, tools for practicing compassion, and, for those who wish, some compassion experiments to do during the week. We hope to learn together more about holding compassion within a greater container of hope and joy so that we may persist without compassion fatigue.

9:30 AM Parent Coffee Talks: Weekly, casual conversation in the CHPC Library (Room 001 at the bottom of the stairs) for parents of children of all ages. On the first Sunday of each month, we’ll bring a conversation topic: In September, we’ll discuss talking to our kids about Racial Justice.
