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.



MORNING PRAYER    God of comfort, we give thanks for the dawning of a new day.  Even though we have turned from you, you have reached for us.  Even though we have been afraid you have been our strength and our might.  May we draw life-giving water with joy this day, giving thanks for the multitude of gifts and challenges we face, singing praises to the Lord throughout all the earth. Amen.


EVENING PRAYER   God of salvation, we are reminded of the myriad of ways you have strengthened and supported us today.  In the midst of challenge and promise you reach for us.  You create a new heaven and a new earth and call us to participate in the renewing of hearts and minds.  Be with us and those we love this night.  Be with your beloved whose fear prevails over your comfort, and bring us through this night to the dawning of a new day. Amen.




Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them,

for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” 

                                                                            Matthew 19:14            

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.

YOUTH GROUPS MEET AS FOLLOWS, during the school year:

Combined class of Middle School & High School – Meets on the 2nd & 4th Sunday of the month from 6-8 PM  next meeting: November 24th 

Elementary School – Thursdays from 3:15-5:15 PM next meeting: November 21st  


GBE student and one of CSPC’s active youth group members, Carter Bloss, wrote a letter to the principals asking about getting a microwave put in the lunchroom for students to use. Once they approved it. He presented the idea to PTO to see if they would sponsor his idea. They were pleased to help and even bought 2!! Once students are taught the microwave expectations, things will start heating up! Thank you Carter for this idea and Thank you GBE PTO for purchasing them.






Fall means leaves, winter means SNOW!  Yes, it is fall or is it winter? Who knows, I don’t think Mother Nature knows either!  The leaves around the church have begun to fall to the ground.  AND when it is cold enough, the snow falls!  If we could have a couple of volunteers to rake the leaves OR push the snow off the walks before Worship, the next few Sundays that would be great!  Thank you for helping keep the front steps and elevator entrance clean and free of debris and snow!

It is the time of the year where we begin to think about the stewardship of our church. We enter into prayer and discernment of what we will each commit to funding the missions of our church in the coming year. Thank you for your contributions in the past that have kept our congregation’s mission going for over a century. Let us look now towards our future and how we can sustain or even grow our ministries. Consider if you can make a small weekly increase in your pledge or if you are able to give a special one-time gift. Be on the lookout for letters from our stewardship committee. Thank you and God bless you and yours.
