THIS MONTH AT CHRISTIAN TEMPLE

Due to Covid-19 precautions, our services of worship for the month of January will be offered online but not in-person. We will send out further word later in the month on how we will proceed with worship in February and beyond. Thank you all for your understanding and your prayers. Stay safe everyone while we weather this serious but temporary storm!

 

COVID NEWS

Unfortunately, our pastor tested positive for Covid on Wednesday, January 5th which means he will be quarantined until January 15th. He will be working from home throughout that time and hopes to be back in the office by Tuesday, January 18th. The good news is that, thanks to the vaccine and the booster, symptoms have been mild.

 

THE PASTOR SEARCH COMMITTTEE NEEDS YOUR HELP!

We are currently hard at work, doing the important tasks needed to help us identify a candidate for our next pastor. Part of this process is filling out a Congregational Profile that potential candidates will see to provide them information about our church. To help us complete this profile, we have composed a questionnaire to allow you to provide input about what our church means to you and what you desire in our next pastor.

You can access the questionnaire by clicking on this link: https://forms.gle/Dyssb33pEnL7tNch9

Please complete this by January 16th. Thank you for your help!

January 23rd- “Economic Justice for our Times” How are we called to work toward the Realm of God Jesus envisioned?

WATSON HALL- NEW YEAR SALE! (By Appt Only)

The New Year is always a good time for a change! Watson Hall Montessori School is in the process of selling a portion of its classroom furniture and educational toys. So much stuff accumulates over the years! If you are interested in purchasing some of these items, please contact Kenda Watson at kenkenwatson78@gmail.com She would be able to tell you a general description of what is left and also set up a date/time for you to view these items.

 

THANK YOU!

The staff at Christian Temple would like to thank our members and friends for their thoughtfulness. This Christmas season was especially merry for us due to all of your kind words and gestures. Thanks so much for the cards, sweets, and gifts that came our way!

 

BACK TO THE FUTURE AT CHRISTIAN TEMPLE- AN END OF YEAR CAMPAIGN TO PREPARE US FOR MINISTRY IN A NEW DAY!

Many organizations invite their participants to make a year end gift, especially if they've been fortunate during the past year. Consider this Christian Temple's invitation to do the same. We are only as strong as the generosity of our members makes us. So, make a gift to this congregation's "Back to the Future" program!

KIDS CHOIR WELCOMES ALL KIDS!

Each Sunday from 10:15-10:45, the Kids Choir meets on Zoom to learn about Jesus through music. We'd love to have your child join us! The Zoom link is posted each week in the Sunday information.  Hope to you there! We will begin Kids Choir later in the month.

 

DO YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO ISN'T RECEIVING THE SEED?

Our email distribution lists are almost up-to-date, but we are concerned that we may have missed a friend or two during this process. If you know of anyone who isn't receiving the J&C and/or The Seed, please ask them to let the office know. Contact Robin at 410-747-2041 or at office@christiantemple.org. Thank you!
