CHLC family and friends,
This coming Sunday, September 27, is the Seventeenth
Sunday after Pentecost. Our worship service
will once again be live-streamed at 10:00 on
our Facebook group, with a link sent out afterward
to view it online through Vimeo. As we continue
hearing God's word in these fall months, we
are challenged by Jesus to consider what it
means that Jesus is the highest authority in
our lives. We are also challenged by Paul to
consider what it means to "work out our
own salvation with fear and trembling ... for
it is God who is at work in you, enabling you
both to will and to work for his good pleasure."
in-person worship was moved to our lawn area
last Sunday, and it seemed to go just fine.
When the sun had fully risen over the trees
it was nice and warm for worshipers. If the
temperatures in October are not above 50 degrees
then it is possible we will not meet in person
on the scheduled days (Oct 4 and 18). We will
make that decision by the middle of the week
leading up to those Sundays and let everyone
know the plans. For right now, we are hopeful
that the weather will cooperate, as it has all
Transition Task Force will soon talk about the
possibility of meeting indoors for in-person
worship, beginning in November. As the weather
outside turns colder, if the status of Franklin
County remains "Level Two," then we
should be able to gather for abbreviated services
indoors. Keep your eyes open for more about
this in the month of October.
will be sending out a Bellringer this coming
Monday, September 28, so if any individuals
or groups in the congregation have things to
share, please email or call the church office
by Friday of this week.
you for your generous donations for the health
kits and hygiene items. A group of women from
the church will be here this afternoon (Wednesday)
to assemble and box them up. You will be receiving
a mailing from the Women of the church about
their next project, raising money for Marsh
Brook Place, a shelter for homeless youth in
Columbus. Details about the project and a bookmark
will be in the mailing.
Women's circles are also planning a Bible study
for Saturday, October 10 at 10:00 a.m. at the
church. The hope is to be outside, but it might
be necessary to move into the large parish hall
depending on the weather. Please wear a mask
and practice social distancing! We want everyone
to remain healthy.
hope that families received the activity sheets
from Rita and me last week, and that you are
able to discuss them and enjoy them. We will
be sharing them each month.
