NEWS FROM THE CHOIR CORNER! 

The CPC Adult choir wants to GROW! We will be trying something new this fall to attract new members. We will be rehearsing every OTHER Thursday at 7:00 pm in the choir room and will be singing the Sunday following each rehearsal. The Children’s Choir will continue to sing once each month and special music will be provided on the other Sundays.

If you would like to sing with us but can’t commit to the Thursday evening rehearsal, we will also be rehearsing every Sunday morning from 10:00 am ‘til 10:45. We will be concentrating
on the December Christmas cantata but will also rehearse our anthem if we’re singing at worship on that particular Sunday.
You can be part of “pickup” choir!

THIS WEEKS ANNOUNCEMENTS

VITAL CONGREGATIONS INITIATIVE

Beginning today, congregations in our Presbytery are considering joining the Vital Congregations Initiative. We will begin our discernment as a congregation by spending 7 weeks focusing on the 7 Marks of Congregational Vitality. Rev. Ryan will be doing a sermon series beginning today to walk us through each of the 7 Marks of Congregational Vitality to help in this discernment process.

Week 3 - Outward Incarnational Focus

is recognizing that all people of God are given spiritual gifts meant for building up the Church. Every part is necessary. Every part is valuable, and every voice is important. Every person should be equipped, nurtured, and supported to use their gifts to glorify God, through servant leadership; not just cliques of powerful people or continual burnout of the same leaders.


Servant-Leader Development is NOT: the pastor’s job; monopolized leadership; hiring the young, energetic pastor


LAST CALL!!! WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!

Do you love to cook or bake? Have a favorite recipe? An old family favorite that mom or grandmom used to make? Well share it with us!!! The CPC YACHT club is publishing a cookbook and we are looking for your best of the best. Send us not just 1 but 2, 3, 4 or more! From appetizers to main courses to desserts. Or if you have a great homemade pie crust or turkey gravy, we want that too! Please see Andrea for how to submit your recipes by October 20th Thank you!!


ADULT ED

Adult Ed began has begun, and plans to meet weekly at 9:45am. The group will be doing a 7-week Bible study following the 7 marks in the Vital Congregations Initiative. If you’ve not participated before, come provide your input, thoughts and experiences to grow and deepen your faith!


A NEW OFFERING

Continuing this fall, the offering plate will be placed on a table at the rear of the Sanctuary.  Members and visitors are invited to place their offering in the collection plate on their way into worship or when they leave. We will continue to have a Dedication of Offering prayer during worship. Also, the Deacons’ Offering will continue to be collected once a month via passing of the collection plates during worship.


AN EASIER WAY OF GIVING

The Finance Committee encourages more congregants to use their bank’s auto pay feature to ease the contribution process and to assure a more consistent cash flow for CPC. It’s a fast and easy process that allows you to set up payments automatically, and your bank mails a check directly to the church! You can do it one time if you are on vacation or absent, or set it up to be sent out regularly. No more worrying if you forgot your cash or checkbook! And couldn’t we all use one less thing to worry about?See this Fall’s Kindred Spirit for a step by step tutorial on how to set up auto bill pay!


VOLUNTEER CHAPLAIN AIDES

Virtua Mt Holly hospital has an opening for lay visitors every day of the week. Following a training and orientation process, an Aide may donate two to four hours each week to visit patients. A 16 hour course will be offered in the conference center at the Virtua Memorial, 175 Madison Ave, Mt Holly, Thursday, Oct. 17 and Friday, Oct. 18 from 8:00am - 5:00pm, with continental breakfast at 7:30am. For more information call or email Chaplain Marge McGinley at 609-914-6365 or mmcginley@virtua.org.


A FRIENDLY REMINDER
If you know that you will be missing worship due to vacations or travel, please send in your offering to the office before you leave. You can send an envelope with your pledge and/or offering so that the work of Christ’s church continues to be funded. You can either drop it in the mail yourself, or set us up in your bank's bill pay as a vendor!


DEACONS CORNER
What do our Deacons do? Here are a few examples:

Card ministry to members

Provide food and financial assistance to those in

           need in our congregation and community.

Sponsor four children at Kids Alley.

Interfaith Hospitality Network volunteers.

Donate funds to assist local community mission

           partners

And much, much more….how can you help?


CHURCH SAFETY TASK FORCE
Given the increased incidents of violence in various houses of worship, we are forming a task force to look at this issue at CPC. This issue of safety impacts the entire congregation, visitors coming to worship and our relationship with our community. We need you to participate in this task force to be sure that we remain a welcoming church while maintaining a safe place for all to gather. If you are interested in participating, please see Bill Van Keuren, Cindy Higgins or Pastor Ryan. 


PER CAPITA
Did you know…every year CPC pays the Per Capita for every member of the church upfront?  By paying back the church for your portion of the Per Capita, you free up funds in our regular budget to be used for ministry and mission in our community.  Thank you to all of you who have already paid your share at only $38.75 per member.  If you have not yet paid your Per Capita, we hope you will consider doing so. Thank you!


HYMN REQUESTS
Do you have a favorite hymn that you’d love to hear in church? If so, let us know! There is a hymn sign up sheet on the main bulletin board.


A REMINDER
Presbyterian Women still collect used ink cartridges for Planet Green. They can be placed in the box on the Food Pantry shelf. They also collect Box Tops to benefit Evesham schools. Those can be placed in the envelope on the Parish Life bulletin board. Thank you!


HELP WANTED

SUNDAY SCHOOL VOLUNTEERS
If you feel God calling you to help teach children about God’s love, the Bible and Jesus, there’s an opportunity to help!  Even if you want to assist another teacher, or be a substitute as needed in the fall, please contact Rev. Ryan. Our children are the future of the church-come and help them on their faith journey!


JUNIOR CHURCH
Junior Church will now be held on the second and fourth Sundays each month.  This allows families the opportunity to worship together. Also, Bonnie needs someone to assist her with Junior Church. If you are interested in helping her in the fall, please let her know.
