Have you noticed that community outreach is becoming a “big thing” at Christ UMC? Just some of the ways we are reaching out include –
- Community meals – beginning again September 28!
- Community garden – Roy Buser spearheaded a very successful growing season AND made some new friends among our neighbors.
- VBS – thanks to our crack Education team, we had a very successful VBS in July.
- Craft Tables at Jefferson Park during summer concerts for children.
AND here are some exciting things to come!
- Worship with West Park UCC – On Sunday, October 6, the congregation from West Park UCC will be joining us in worship as we celebrate World Communion Sunday!
- Worship AT West Park UCC – On Sunday, October 13, we will be worshiping with West Park in their sanctuary on Rocky River Drive!
- Meet the Pastor for Lunch – Dianne will be at Rubin’s on Wednesdays. September 4 and 18, October 9, October 30, and November 20 at noon this fall – come meet her for lunch and conversation!
- Christmas Party for Kids coming up December 14.
- Advent Study will be HERE on Mondays, December 2, 9, 16 and 23 with West Park UCC.
- Members of the Community Outreach team are exploring partnering with other churches, with the Bellaire Puritas Development Corporation, and local schools to reach out to folks in the area.
- What other ideas do you have?
It is great to see our congregation reaching out with the love of Christ to our neighbors! Let’s keep it up!
Fear Not, Dianne
