Happy New Year!
As we get going with this new year, I want to be sure you know what’s coming up in the life of the church.
- Waking Up White Book Study
Saturday, I will begin a monthly book study on this challenging book. If you are interested in this important topic, please get a copy of Waking Up White by Debby Irving. It is available on Amazon in paperback or Kindle. We plan to cover the introduction and chapters 1-5.
- Installation and Ordination
Elders and deacons who begin their terms in 2020 will be ordained and installed during worship on Sunday. Ordination and installation is one of my favorite acts in the life of the church! I hope you are able to come and be part of this significant moment in the life of the church.
- Annual Congregational Meeting
Following worship, we will hold the annual congregational meeting, where we will hear reports from each of the committees, vote on the pastor’s terms of call, and take questions on the 2020 budget.
- Leadership Retreat
Elders, deacons, trustees, and staff will be participating in a leadership retreat next Saturday 9am-2:30pm (we are extending the time by thirty minutes). This is an important retreat and we encourage all our leaders to attend.
- Wednesday Night Bible Study
Weekly Bible Study will resume on Wednesday, January 22, at 7:15pm, in the parlor. We will study Hebrews this winter and spring. If you want to deepen your knowledge of scripture, and particularly with how the Old and New Testaments connect, this will be a study you don’t want to miss!
I’m excited! We have so much going on at a time that is usually much more dormant! And I haven’t even touched on all of it! Please be sure to look through the rest of the newsletter for all the ministry opportunities at CTPC!
