Summer Ministry: The CEC summer retreat has been canceled.
CEC office closed: 5/25-26
Online service and meetings: We cherish our time together as a church, and our Sunday corporate worship is extremely important. But after carefully considering the health risks to our church and community, and after listening to our church and civic leaders on the matter, the CEC and CPC sessions have agreed to temporarily close the church doors.
During this time, we will continue to worship corporately through a CEC streaming video feed. Bible studies and other group meetings are now also taking shape through Zoom and other online platforms. While its not the same as being together in person, we believe that these means can still provide meaningful nourishment and fellowship.
Many of you have answered the call to pray over this situation. Many have also found ways to serve the body with encouraging words, IT expertise, financial giving, and creative ministries. We thank you all!
Our prayer is that God will mercifully bring an end to the coronavirus pandemic and that his good purposes will be accomplished even during this calamity. We hope to meet together again just as soon as it is safe and possible.
With much love and concern,
