Youth and Adult Sunday School for February: Exploring the Juvenile Justice System
Youth and adults are meeting together on Zoom for Sunday school in February. You are welcome to visit with each other at 9:30 or sign on at 9:45 a.m. when class begins.
We are all aware of the heart-breaking, ever-rising violence among young people in our community. Additionally, we all agree that “something needs to change”. In February we delve into what that “something” should be, specifically within our juvenile justice system

Congregation member and Juvenile Public Defender Eric Proctor will educate on the current juvenile justice system and facilitate discussion addressing the following:
When, if ever, should children be incarcerated? And for how long?At what age should a child become an adult in the justice system? Should children ever be prosecuted as adults?Can the school to prison pipeline be disrupted? How?What roles do the following play: access to guns, race, poverty?What can the community do, outside of prosecution, to rehabilitate delinquent children?Finally, how does our faith as Christians, as CHPCers, and as a Matthew 25 congregation shape this conversation?

40 days of Nurture
Hello Church Family. As we approach Lent, the members of Nurture Committee have committed to 40 Days of Nurture. These 40 days (not counting Sundays) is a liturgical season which prepares us for the resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Traditionally, Christians have been asked to give something up but we want to participate in 40 days of Nurture. 40 days of sending letters, 40 days of walking, 40 days of meditation. 40 days of reading the Equal Justice Initiative Calendar. You can decide how you want to participate. Please join us in 40 days of Nurture.
Ash Wednesday Service at 12pm Feb. 17th
Ash Wednesday begins the season of Lent, a time for growth in faith. Through prayer and other spiritual practices, we prepare for the season of Easter. Traditionally, Ash Wednesday includes the ritual act of the imposition of ashes. This year, while we are still using Zoom for our worship services, we turn attention from the ashes toward the significance of the ashes: confession and repentance. In prayerful preparation for this service, we are invited to read Psalm 51. Please join us for worship at 12pm on Wednesday, February 17th.
