We are collecting new or gently used clean winter scarves and tuques up to February 6. These will be blessed and distributed to people who would appreciate a warm ‘hug” for Valentine’s Day.
Lunch and Learn Series — Feb 10, March 3, March 17 11:45-1:30
Church 101 is for anyone interested in questions of Christian faith in the 21st century. It’s also for those seeking membership or preparing for baptism or marriage at Cedar Park United.
“Listen, Look, Luke!” is a 5-week series starting Jan 24 from 9:15-11:00 AM , led by Rev. Elisabeth, using Midrash to explore the Gospel of Luke. Come to one, two, or all sessions.
This year, Cedar Park United will join with an ever increasing number of Christian faith communities who use a daily spiritual practice known as “Star Words” (…Words!! not a George Lucas franchise- I see you!!) .
Come with us on an Advent journey to the stable where Jesus is found. Encounter the Holy this holiday season.
Resourcing the Vision
I am writing this letter surrounded by bubbles! The photo shows some of the “vision bubbles” that have been shared by Cedar Parkers during the first four weeks of our Vision 2020 Season for Discernment.
Focussing on the upcoming preaching texts, RevE will help participants to “mind the gaps”, fill in the blanks, uncover layers in the text, and bring today’s contexts into conversation with the Gospel as told by Mark. 4 Wednesday evenings from 7:30 to 9:15, starting Sept 19 or 4 Thursdays from 9:15 to 11:00, starting Sept 20.
As a congregation we will discern together what vision God has for us between now and 2020. We’ll launch Vision 2020 at a Faith Fiesta at Cap St. Jacques on Saturday, Sept 15 from 10-6, continuing with Sunday worship at CPU on Sept 16.
Our summer worship series explores the many times Scripture reminds us that God is not only “up there” in heaven, but “down here” amongst us, pitching a tent right in the midst of creation.
July at Cedar Park is “Sabbath Time.” Worship will resume on August 5. Download your 2018 Summer Sabbath Guide here.
