Announcements

Fall Campus Cleanup Nov. 22
Spend a fall morning helping prepare our church grounds for the winter.  Bring your rakes, clippers, blowers and let's take on all those leaves!  We'll work and have fun from 8:30 am - 1 pm.


CCPC to Host Interfaith Thanksgiving Service
Bowie's traditional Interfaith Thanksgiving Service will be held at CCPC at 7:30 pm on Wednesday, Nov. 26. Join your neighbors participating in Christian, Jewish, Islamic and Unitarian traditions. Joint choirs will be part of the service.


Christmas Families
Names of Christmas Families children are available on Sundays. We have fewer families this year, so get yours before they are all chosen!  We are collecting small travel- and personal-size items such as shampoo, soap, etc. to include in our Christmas Families packages again this year. Please clean out your cabinets and suitcases, or pick up a few extra at the store--leave your donations in the marked bag in the church office. Thank you!

A New Way to Share Christmas Greetings
After considerable discussion, we decided to end the CCPC Christmas Post Office card exchange among church members. Our reasoning included the cost of cards and time spent addressing envelopes and writing notes--a burden for some. This year, we will have a huge church-wide card in the atrium for everyone to sign, along with two scrapbooks for you to insert your card, letter or photo for everyone to read and admire.  In this way, we hope to bring more simplicity and serenity to our Advent observances.


Sermons of Interest
The sermon delivered by Rev.Brassard on Sunday, July 27, addressed the Presbyterian Church's General Assembly deliberations and actions on gender and same-sex participation and inclusion.  Due to requests, we have made the sermon available here.  Other sermons are available in the Worship section of the website.

20th Anniversary of the Sanctuary
On Sunday, Sept. 28, our congregation celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Sanctuary.  To mark the occasion, Building Committee Chair John Mathers delivered a stirring compilation of how this project came to be.  Read more.
