Preparing for Sunday

Who is serving on Sunday?  Check the server schedule.

Ruth 1-4, Game to stay together as a group
Communion Class begins November 6
It is a great joy to prepare your child to receive or to learn about the wonderful gift of the Holy Eucharist. We are using a lovely book called We Celebrate. Since we follow the more ancient custom of offering Holy Communion to all baptized persons, regardless of age, we do not call this course First Communion.   Find out more >
Pancake Stacks Rule!
The Pancake Stack Frisbee Team raised just over $500 for the Bonnie Brae boys to attend camp this summer. They had a great showing as a new team at the tournament and lots of fun. Jake Altom was awarded “Play of the Day” for sliding through the mud while catching the frisbee in the end zone to earn the team a point. The team also received the “Most Team Spirit” award. They are already looking forward to next year, when they hope to convince CHS adults to form a team.   See all the photos here (thanks, Michelle Marlow!) >
