The process to acquire and implement a new Heating Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system for the church has made much progress since our last communication with the congregation. We recently reviewed the drawings and proposal from our engineering consultant which will form the basis of our Request for Proposal from qualified local contractors. We will be conducting a bidders conference at the church the afternoon of November 17 to review the proposal. After meeting with the potential bidders we will be anticipating receiving proposals for the new system by mid December and hope to award the contract prior to Christmas, if all goes well.
Deliberately Diverse & Fully Inclusive
We seek to be a deliberately diverse community of faith – our strength grows in proportion to the diversity of the voices in our midst. Our congregation is made up of a variety of people from a variety of backgrounds and socio-economic status; we are rich, poor, homeless, housed, black, white, gay and straight, and we gather together to live into our call to be the Body of Christ.
Come Hang Some Greens and Other Stuff
If you’ve never seen and/or participated in the Hanging of the Greens (known around here as HOTG), don’t let that stop you. This is a fun, multi-generational VERY casual “service” that gets us in the mood for a noncommercial Christmas, as we learn what all the symbols of Christmas mean in relationship to Christ’s birth.
I hope you’re thinking about how you’d like to participate in the HOTG Advent Service this year. It will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 30, at 6:30 PM. To sign up to help in any way (readers, cooks, ushers, etc.) please go to the HOTG Signup Form and fill out the form, all the needs are listed on the form.
For supper that night, we’ll start serving at 5:30 PM. You MUST have a reservation to eat dinner at CPC that evening. Sign up at the HOTG Dinner Form no later than Monday, Nov. 28, at 5 PM to make your reservation. Read more…
