CHC In-Person Prayer Meeting May 8th
This Saturday, May 8th at 10:30 am, please join us at the church facility for a prayer meeting, in the main sanctuary. We believe that gathering for prayer is a priority in this new season.
Please enter through the main doors at the top of the stairs. There is a ramp located to the left side of the building that you may use to enter instead if needed. Please note that this prayer meeting will be prayer-focused (no message, no worship), and there will not be childcare provided. Parents, please keep your children near you. Please remember to wear a properly fitted mask and remain physically distanced from people not in your household.
In-Person Sunday Church Service May 16th
Please join us on Sunday, May 16th at 9 am, for an in-person church service at the church facility. We are so excited to worship together again!
Please enter through the main doors at the top of the stairs. There is a ramp located to the left side of the building that you may use to enter instead if needed. Please remember to wear a properly fitted mask and remain physically distanced from people not in your household. Childcare will be provided for ages 4 through 4th grade (see below for more details).

The class is open to 4-year-olds through 4th grade students and will be held in the Fellowship Hall.

Good to Know
Please join us on Saturday, May 15th, to assist with our grocery distribution in the parking lot behind the Waverly YMCA (The Weinberg Y) on 33rd St. We are activating the network of more than a dozen non-profits and churches to ensure that the food gets to people in need. We need volunteers to greet people, direct traffic, carry boxes, and drivers to deliver boxes to homes or nearby assisted living facilities. We ask that volunteers arrive at 9:15 am to help unload the truck. Please bring your own mask, drinking water, snack, and work gloves. The grocery distribution will begin at 10:30 am, and 575 pre-sorted boxes of groceries will be given away. Please continue to pray for our efforts in organizing this continued effort.
Outdoor Meetup Ideas
Now that weather is getting warmer, we are looking for more opportunities to meet up outdoors together. If you have ideas for outdoor, physically distanced, and masked activities that the church can plan, please share your ideas with Pastor Ben.
Watch Sunday Messages
Missed last week’s Sunday message? No problem! You can watch the recording on YouTube or Facebook. Sunday messages are posted each week at 8:55am Sunday morning on Facebook as well as on Friday nights on YouTube.
In John chapter 1, we see that Jesus, the Son of the living God, existed before any human. Our Creator God is three in one, triune, and always in perfect relationship. God the Father, God the Holy Spirit, and God the Son have been in constant dialogue throughout human history. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the one who brings light and new life. Jesus came to earth and offered to anyone who would believe Him (and accept Him) the right to become a child of God. Through Jesus, we can find the unfailing love of God.
