Youth and Adult Sunday School in February

During February the Earth Care team will lead a series of inter-generational Sunday school classes on climate change (9:45-10:45 a.m. in the Gathering room). During the class on February 10, Sadie Lawrence, a student at Manual High School, will tell us about youth efforts to tackle climate change(and may bring some friends with her, too). On Feb. 17, we will look at how we communicate with others about climate change, particularly with those across the climate change divide. We will also explore a few scripture passages and some overarching principles on how climate change is a moral and ethical issue, to help us articulate why we care about climate as people of faith. Rebecca Barnes will lead.

2019 First Sunday Afternoon Potlucks

This whole year we are going to have potlucks right after church on the First Sunday of each month. This month’s potluck was Feb.3, which also included CHPC’s annual meeting. The next date is March 3. We hope that you will mark your calendars all through the year so that you will not miss being with your church family on these occasions. Bring whatever you would like – home-cooked, store bought, the source does not matter. Just come with something yummy to share, tableware for you to use, or the willingness to use church dishes and help wash them in order to decrease CHPC’s use of disposable paper and plastic products this year.

This special time of coming together for food, fun and fellowship is sponsored by your Nurture Council. If you would be willing to help us with the set-up and clean-up one month this year, please contact Soni Castleberry, 417-6481 (text or phone), or email soni.castleberry@gmail.com. We would really appreciate the extra hands and the joy of getting to know you better as we work alongside one another.
