Zoom Sunday School for Children
Children of all ages are invited to Zoom Sunday School, each Sunday morning from 9:45–10:15. Please join us for songs, Bible stories, prayers, crafts, and more!

As word spreads about Zoom Sunday School, we’ve been blessed to have participants from as far away as Washington State and Costa Rica. We will be joined at least occasionally in the new year by Sid (aka Luke Van Marter), who no doubt will continue to make us smile as he completely misunderstands the day’s Bible lesson.

Teachers are Eva Stimson, Jerry Van Marter and Bev Machin. Please contact Eva or Jerry if you are interested in being part of the teaching team in 2022 or if you want to be added to the list to receive the weekly Zoom invitations. If you have any questions or comments, please call or email Eva Stimson or Jerry Van Marter.
Happy Earth Day!
April means SPRING and EARTH DAY! Our world is coming out of the sleepy winter and blossoming forth in beauty everywhere. CHPC has paid special attention to the environment and God’s world for many, many years. In 2012, the church became an Earth Care Congregation, through the PC(USA). As we have every year since then, we have recently received notice of our recertification. This recertification for 2022 shows the amount of commitment our congregation has shown to caring for God’s Earth. We need more members to work with us on the Earth Care Team. If you are interested in meeting with us or being on the email list, please contact either Polly Cushman or Barbara Hedspeth!

We are also celebrating Earth Day in the worship service Sunday, April 24th. Jessica Maudlin will be preaching, and a member of the CHPC Earth Care Team will be helping with the liturgy. Jessica is the Associate for Sustainable Living and Earth Care Concerns for the PC(USA). The Earth Care Pledge says we “will celebrate God’s grace and glory in creation and declare that God calls us to cherish, protect and restore this earth.” Join us on Sunday the 24th to celebrate our beautiful gift from God and to examine ways we can help to restore our Earth!

Dates and times: Friday, 6:00-11:30 pm, Saturday, 11:00 am - 6:00 pm, and Sunday 11:00 am - 6:00 pm.
