YOUR QUESTIONS ARE WELCOME HERE!
- Would you enjoy the guidance of fellow seekers to help you support your children's growth into strong and compassionate moral thinkers?
- Are you looking for a place where you can bring your deepest joys and sorrows and find real companionship in celebration and suffering?
- Do you long for a place where you and your family can learn to love one another and care for the world in a compassionate faith community?
We hope our little white-steepled meetinghouse will become a weekly refuge for your soul -- where you can join us to share gratitude and wonder for your life, and learn to use ancient spiritual resources to wrestle with your questions about the greatest mysteries of the universe.
No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey,
YOU (and your questions) ARE WELCOME HERE.
Sunday Night Adult Study meets 5-6:30pm
in the Church Library
You are invited to join us in reading "Bold and Brazen: Exploring
Biblical Prophets," the latest book in Barbara Essex's popular Bible
study series. Essex was the author of "Bad Girls of the Bible" --
a book read and discussed recently in CCB's Sunday Night Adult Study.
This slim, accessible study guide explores eight prophets of the Hebrew Bible: Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Joel, Amos, Jonah, Micah, and Habakkuk. Devoted followers of this collection will recognize Essex's straightforward style of Bible study, and new readers will appreciate the modern-day relevance of her writing and well-organized study and reflection questions at the end of each chapter.
Books are available for purchase ($15) in the Church Office. For the first session (Oct. 4), please read the book's introductory chapter, pp. 1-23.

Thursday Morning Prayers & Bible Study
9:00 to 10:30am in the Church Library
Begin your day with a time of quiet contemplation in a simple ministry of prayer, as we lift up the names of those who are sick or grieving, who are in discernment, or have thanksgiving or celebration to share. We will have a brief Bible study of our weekly lectionary scripture texts, led by Senior Pastor Bryn Smallwood-Garcia. Join us every Thursday, or drop in as you have a need for prayer or a morning free for study.
If you would like more information, speak to one of our pastors at 203-775-1259 or e-mail the church at firstname.lastname@example.org.
