A Church-Wide Study on Psalm 23

WHEN THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD


This fall we will begin a church-wise study on Psalm 23, one of the most well-known and beloved psalms in the Bible. All CCA members and regular attenders should have received a mailing that included a special letter from Fr. Marc and a devotional guide on Psalm 23, When The Lord is My Shepherd: Finding Hope in A Hard Time. Prayerfully use this guide as we enter this fall season as a church and look for more information to come.

If you did not receive the mailing, please contact the church office.

Children in Worship
“As we approach a new series on Psalm 23, I am excited to further connect our children into worship despite the frustration of the pandemic. Our children will be contributing bulletin cover art based on portions of Psalm 23 with their own introduction to their artwork. Also, in our Morning Prayer services on Zoom, our children will be giving their thoughts on Psalm 23 for our adults. In other words, the children’s homily will be given by our children! Finally, we will be singing a rendition of Psalm 23 at our 4 p.m. service where youth and children will help lead the congregation. Our goal is to further develop our vision of intergenerational catechesis and worship even in these strange times. I pray these efforts will build up the faith of the whole Body, and perhaps spark more imagination among us in ministry.” – Fr. Joe

Adult Bible Study

Many have said that Galatians is the most important epistle in the New Testament. Its strength gives birth to a clarity about the Gospel that is unsurpassed in the Bible.

Fr. Marc invites you to join him online in studying this rich and encouraging letter from St. Paul.

The Study will begin Wednesday, October 7 and conclude Wednesday, November 11. Each week we will study a chapter of Galatians via Zoom, beginning at 7 p.m. and concluding at 8 p.m. Here is a great opportunity for you and your friends to join Fr. Marc in exploring this magnificent letter of the Bible.

To receive the Zoom link for this class, please subscribe to the Church Newsletter.

Youth

We continue to meet via Zoom, or as we call it, Youth Zoom.  We meet every Monday night at 7:30 p.m., and try to keep it under an hour with fellowship, games, discussion, and prayer. Currently, we are following our church wide study on Psalm 23 practicing various evening prayers and Lectio Divinia (Divine Reading).  Come check us out. Message Fr. Joe for the Zoom link.

Children 

We really miss seeing our children for Sunday School, but they are not forgotten. We are posting Gospel Play videos with wonder questions and the collect of the day for you to discuss and pray together with your child. Also, in our series on Psalm 23 we are inviting our children to design our bulletin covers and they are providing the children’s homily for our Sunday 10:30 a.m. Zoom service.

Gospel Play video’s are now available through the church office. To request please click here.

Nursery

At this time we are not offering nursery.

Normally, the nursery is staffed 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. on Sundays, allowing parents to attend both the Sunday School Classes and the 10:30am Holy Eucharist. The nursery is equipped to care for infants and children up to four years old. It is our priority that children are safe and that their spiritual and physical needs are met in the nursery.
