Worship Schedule 
Sunday, Sept. 6, is our last week of one Sunday service at 10:30 am. Our regular schedule of an 8:30 am Chapel Service with Communion and a 10:30 am Main Worship Service begins Sept. 13.

Adult Education and Sunday School Begin Sept. 13
At 9:30 am on Sept. 13, all children and parents will begin the Sunday School year at the registration table outside Dodds Hall. This year's teachers are: Cradle Roll--Alex Bourne and Catherine Coleman; Preschool--Kimberly Gedrich and Melodie Dziduch, and Kim Tavel and Becky Murphy; K-2--Carrie Ahearn, Dave McCarty and Kemi Komlan; 3-5--Joi Kesner, Emelie Rubin and Jennifer Woods; and Connect (grades 6-12)--Kristen Zacheis, Charlie Dziduch and Kevin Clemence.  Signs will direct children to classes, where parents may pick them up at 10:15 am.  This fall's curriculum is a PCUSA theme called, "Growing in Grace and Graditude" for the four youngest age groups. The Sunday Morning Connect group will have topical lessons in 3-6 week units. Questions?  Please contact Justin Devine.

Adult Education begins the year with a special coffee and survey hour at 9:30 am on Sept. 13, with refreshments in the Narthex. Survey topics will include Worship, Mission and Adult Education. Adult Ed classes will begin on Sept. 20, with a 3-week series on the topic of same-sex marriage held in Dodds Hall at 9:30 am each week. The desire is to create an open dialogue with participation from as many members of the congregation as possible.  We will be answering questions, have a panel of clergy, and look at the history of the topic in culture, media, and the church. Sessions will be held Sept. 20 and 27, and Oct. 4.

A Parents in the Parlor group begins on Oct. 11, to look at topics relevant to parents of children in a variety of age groups. Led by Kathryn McCarty, the discussion-based group will share experiences and create a space for adult fellowship.


Youth Camping Trip
CCPC youth will go camping at Breezy Point in Chesapeake Beach Sept. 18-20.  The cost is $20, and all 6th through 12th graders are welcome. Contact Justin Devine at 301-262-6008 or ccpcdirced@verizon.net for details.

Tiger Lilies--You're Invited!
Tiger Lilies is a women's book group that meets in the Parlor at 7:30 pm the first Monday of each month from September through June. On Labor Day evening, Sept. 7, the discussion will be on books you've read over the summer.  The fall selection is The Good Book by Peter Gomes, available in paperback or Kindle. Discussion on that book begins Oct. 5. Contact andrea.brassard@verizon.net for more information.

Fall Women's Retreat set for Sept. 19
Peggy Oates and Sue Evans will lead the fall Women's Retreat from 9 am -  2 pm in Dodds Hall on Saturday, Sept. 19. There will be time for visiting, sharing and creating--and a tea luncheon! Please bring a photo or magazine picture that brings you joy. The cost is $8, payable to Presbyterian Women of the Church (PWOC).

Bowie CROP Walk is Coming Up
The Bowie CROP Walk to end world hunger will take place Sunday, Oct. 4. After a hiatus, CCPC will have a team this year. The walk will be held at St. Matthew's United Methodist Church, and you will have a choice of a 2.5-mile or 4.5-mile walk; 25% of proceeds will go to the Bowie Food Pantry. CCPC team members should register in advance with Kris Ross or Debbie Sell.
