Invitation from Peggy: We Need You!

We are planning a worship leader training session for March (date TBD) for current worship leaders and those who might be open to leading in the future. What if almost everyone in the congregation came to the training? That could be fun!

We need volunteers to help with communion preparation and clean-up. If everyone said "yes" to one time a year, we'd have it covered. 

Several of you have commented that you'd like to have different people serve as liturgists, but only one or two have volunteered. The choir could benefit from more voices and even more instrumentalists.

One of my favorite hymns is "Here I Am, Lord." In the refrain, we sing, "Is it I, Lord?" I ask myself that question when I sense the Spirit leading me to a new call or someone asking me to commit to something. "Is it me?" "Am I the best person for the job?" 

How often do you say "no" to a request before you consider what saying "yes" could mean for you and the people you're serving? Sometimes we are afraid to take on a new responsibility or challenge because we fear we're not good enough or don't have enough time or energy. We might think that someone else will do it. Someone ends up being no one. 

Imagine how enriched our worship would be if more people participated in the leadership and shared their gifts with the community. Is it you?



Zoom Sunday School for Children

Children of all ages are welcome to join us from 9:45 to 10:15 a.m. on Zoom for Bible stories, music, conversation, and visits with our crazy friend Sid. Will Sid continue to “fundamentally misunderstand” the Bible stories about Jesus as we move through January and into Lent and Easter? Join us and find out!

Zoom Sunday school is led by Eva Stimson, Jerry Van Marter, and Bev Machin. Please contact one of them if you are interested in joining the leadership team. Contact Jerry Van Marter to get on the list to receive weekly Zoom invitations and curriculum materials.

Per Capita for 2023

The "per capita apportionment"--per member fee--for 2023 is $25.90. Please help the church budget by paying your own per capita amount. Make your check to "CHPC" and write per capita on the memo line. There's also a per capita option on the church giving website. The per capita amount is determined by the higher councils of the PC(USA), and supports their functioning. The 2023 amount is split among the presbytery ($12.07), the synod ($3.98), and the General Assembly ($9.85).

The Feminine Web of Inter-being

Spirit of Sophia invites all the women of CHPC to join us on Sunday, February 5, for a workshop for women with Victoria Loorz, author of Church of the Wild. She is co-founder and director of Seminary of the Wild, which is focused on a deep-dive yearlong Eco-Ministry Certificate program for all those who feel called by Earth and Spriit to "restore the great conversation" (Thomas Berry).  Crescent Hill Presbyterian Church is one of three sponsors of this event -- and due to this generosity, the program is free of charge. Registration is required and we are limiting participants to 35. Please sign up soon!

Registration and more information is found at: https://spiritofsophia.org/the-feminine-web-of-inter-being/  

(When you see a suggested donation on the registration/waiver form, just ignore—not meant for CHPC members!)
