Call to worship
We have seen a Great Light - Inspired by the words of Nelson Mandela, President, Union of South Africa, and the prophet, Isaiah.
Men: God gives the world a beautiful gift!
Women: A gift that will change darkness to light!
All: For people living in darkness, a light will come.
Men: Come, Creator of seasons, of people, of new light
Women: God of promise, Spirit of freedom,
All: Come, let’s walk in this light!

Following is a summary of our General Donations as of September 30th. While we are slightly ahead of last year, our target for the year has increased by $4,000 so we are somewhat behind where we would like to be at this point.
Continue to remember the CMC in your giving plans for the year.
