Deacon’s Minute for Mission

  • The Deacon’s will be participating in the Moberly Downtown Trunk or Treat trail.  

Safe Passage has had extra expenses due to the Pandemic.  They have been using a lot more trash bags, dish soap and hand soap.  If you are able to donate any of these items, you can bring them to the church, and leave them at the Christos Bookshelf in the hall.  The Deacon’s will make sure they get them.

Moberly Public Schools in lieu of the Buddy Pack program, is asking for donations to be made for general hygiene products, sanitary hygiene products for the girls, toothpaste, brushes, or monetary donations for items to be purchased for students that are in need.

If your contact information has changed, please contact the church office to make sure that we have their most recent info: address, phone numbers, and email.  You can call or email the office, or sign the red folders in the Sanctuary with your information.

Please remember to keep in contact with your loved ones, the elderly and anyone that you know that may need some help in this time of uncertainty.  It may just be as simple as calling to see if they need some groceries or other necessities.  Call the Church office if you need help, or know of someone that does to see if one of our volunteers can help!

Choir Rehearsals are Wednesday’s at 5:30pm.   Welcome all that love to sing!

We Seek to Know Christ’s Love and Minister in His Name

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts,

as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.  For thine is the kingdom,

and the power, and glory, forever.

Amen.

MORNING PRAYER:  Holy God, you are light, and in you there is no darkness at all.  Shift my focus today from whatever is false to that which is true; from whatever is vulgar to that which is honorable; from whatever is corrupt to that which is just; from whatever is inauthentic to that which is pure; from whatever is detestable to that which is pleasing; from whatever is insignificant to that which is commendable; that I may live in the light.  Through Christ Jesus I pray.  Amen.

EVENING PRAYER:  God, your love is steadfast and enduring.  May your peace, which surpasses all understanding, hem me in, behind and before, as I lie down to rest.  Amen.

 Question for Reflection:

Where has your trust in God wavered or broken down? 

What would it take for that trust to be restored? 

When have you experienced the peace of God, which passes understanding?

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

Do you have a school aged child or grandchild?  Please consider signing them up to attend our youth program.   For each group, CSPC provides a healthy snack, different ways to learn about Jesus in the weekly lessons and crafts or activities   to help reinforce the lessons.  Mary has a way of telling the stories of Jesus on the child’s level, they all are tuned into her as she tells the story.

Would you like to become involved in the youth programs?  Volunteers are always needed to help.

See Mary to sign up!  Youth groups will be starting up soon, be thinking of how you can become involved.  The children are picked up from school on the CSPC bus, and transported to the church, parents pick them up here after group meetings.
