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.
