Christmas Concert, Sunday, December 18

On Sunday, December 18, at 2 p.m., Amy, Doug, Frank and David will present a program of favorite Christmas music. The concert is free and open to all, so bring a friend. A light reception will follow, so come for the music and stay for the fellowship. 

December Sunday School Class for Adults and Youth

This Sunday is our final class with Dr. Amy Pauw from 9:45 - 10:45 a.m. in the back building’s Gathering Room. The study will be based on Dr. Tyler Mayfield’s new book, Father Abraham’s Many Children: The Bible in a World of Religious Difference. Amy and Tyler are colleagues at Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary. Mayfield looks at the familiar Bible stories of Cain and Abel, Ishmael and Isaac, and Esau and Jacob, and shows how to read them in a way that welcomes religious difference and diversity. You do not need to have the book, nor have read it, to participate in this wonderful opportunity for learning and conversation. It is a perfect topic for youth and adults. If you cannot to come to all classes, come when you can.

An added bonus: Patti and Jack Marcum will have coffee and tea ready at 9:45 a.m. for folks to take to Sunday school or for those who prefer time with other CHPCers for general conversation instead. That group will meet in the church office, also in the back building. 

Giving Back for Advent

The Interfaith Coalition for Immigrant Justice is organizing a holiday event to benefit La Casita. They have asked many churches to participate. They are collecting specific food items, specific children's books in Spanish, Walmart gift cards, and more. We have narrowed the list to just a few items that can be brought to church each Sunday of Advent. The fourth Sunday's donation will benefit UCHM.

December 18 - Bring cooking oil (to be donated to UCHM)

If you would like the entire list of items, please reach out to Claudia Foulkes or Tricia Lloyd-Sidle.  

Zoom Sunday School for Children Is Taking a Break

There will be no Zoom Sunday school for children on December 25 and January 1. We look forward to more Bible stories, music, and visits with our crazy friend Sid in the new year!
