Becoming a Beloved Community Gatherings: January & February, 2023
Our vision at Cedar Ridge is a “dream of heaven on earth,” or as Dr. King put it, “A Beloved Community” where love and justice pervade every part of our being together. To that end, we are seeking input from our whole church about how we can become a more racially diverse, equitable and inclusive community together. We will ask: what action can we take to become more racially equitable and inclusive? What obstacles stand in our way? And what strengths can we leverage? Gatherings will be held in person on Sundays January 15, February 5 and February 12 (11:30AM-1PM) and via zoom on Thursday January 26 (7-8:30PM). Space is limited to enable rich discussions, and we’ll add more gatherings as needed. Please sign up here to attend.
Creative Cup Coffeehouse: Saturday February 11, 7-9PM
Join us for our annual Creative Cup Coffeehouse. Come and enjoy live music, an open mic, and art exhibits. Coffee and desserts will be served, and there will be craft activities for children and the young at heart. Bring some of your artwork for the community art gallery. (Bring it in on any Sunday or contact Ruth to drop off at another time.) Sign up for the open mic here.
Ash Wednesday Service: Wednesday February 22, 7-8PM
We will gather together on Ash Wednesday to mark the beginning of the season of Lent with a traditional evening service including the imposition of ashes, and periods of reflection and silence. There will be no childcare, but everyone and all ages are welcome. A zoom option will also be available.
Donations Needed for the Greencastle Food Donation Program
Changing populations dynamics and increased homelessness among families at Greencastle Elementary School have led to new food needs. Please click here for a list of needed food items and to sign up. Donations can be left in the Commons on any Sunday, or any time in the bins outside the front doors of the main church building.
Sunday Morning Book Study Group: Every Sunday, 8:45 AM in room 203
This group is discussing Rediscovering Jonah: The Secret of God’s Mercy, by Tim Keller. Although one of the worst prophets in the entire Bible, there are unmistakably clear connections between Jonah, the prodigal son, and Jesus. How could one of the most defiant and disobedient prophets in the Bible be compared to Jesus? Join us and find out! All welcome. For more information, please contact Dave Martinsen (email@example.com).
