Adult Fellowship and Bible Studies

​Adult Book Study

Throughout the year various book studies are announced with various meeting times, usually evenings. 


Martha Circle- meets the 3rd Tuesday of the month, usually meeting in the Fireside Room for a book study. Various times of the year they may also have a picnic and/or a meal at  a restaurant. They also do mission projects.


Seafarers- is an adult social group that usually meets on Fridays. They often meet at restaurants and enjoy a meal together. They also choose to sponsor various mission activities to sponsor. They facilitate a book exchange one Sunday a month.


Host a Gathering- The Hospitality committee is inviting members and friends of CPC to host small gatherings. We hope these events help build up the fellowship of our community while also supporting our campership fund. Perhaps you have a great home theater setup; consider hosting a movie night. If you have a beautiful garden, consider hosting an afternoon garden party. If you know how to make a particular dish, consider offering a hands-on cooking session. If you have a great man-cave, consider hosting a poker night.


If you have ideas or wish to host something in the next few months, please contact any member of the Hospitality Committee or the Church Office.

Discussion Series on Mental Health

Tuesday Afternoons starting April 13

3:30 pm to 5:00 pm

Facilitated by Pastor Wendy


 

Are you struggling with depression or anxiety?  Do you want to learn how you can help someone who is struggling with their mental health?  Are you looking for a safe community of people who can discuss mental health without stigma or shame?

 

Pastor Wendy has noticed a lot of congregational response when we raised mental health as an area of concern for our community.   In this 6- Week Adult Education series, we will watch TED talks on various topics and then discuss how we might better respond as individuals and a church.

 

Week 1   April 13

Johann Hari:  This Could be Why You’re Depressed or Anxious

https://www.ted.com/talks/johann_hari_this_could_be_why_you_re_depressed_or_anxious

One of the most popular TED talks from 2019, New York Times bestselling author and journalist Johann Hari shares fresh insights on the causes of depression and anxiety from experts around the world -- as well as some exciting emerging solutions. "If you're depressed or anxious, you're not weak and you're not crazy -- you're a human being with unmet needs," Hari says. 

 

Week 2   April 20

Brené Brown: The power of Vulnerability    

https://www.ted.com/talks/brene_brown_the_power_of_vulnerability

Brené Brown studies human connection -- our ability to empathize, belong, love. In a poignant, funny talk, she shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity. 

 

Future weeks and topics will be determined by the group’s interests and needs. 

 

If you are planning to attend this class, please contact Rev. Wendy.  Also, please pass along this class to any friends or neighbors who might be interested in this topic.
