New Sunday Schedule
September 20, 2017
Dear Church Family,
Your Session made this decision because the Lord has been adding to our numbers, and we have added over 120 chairs to the Worship Center since January 2017. We now believe CEPC has outgrown one worship service due to both attendance numbers and that every parking space is being taken on our campus. We’ve also had an additional 30 cars parked in the Home Depot lot.
Our church has been steadily growing over the past two years to the point that we have been close to moving to two services for several months. We wanted to postpone this inevitable decision for as long as possible, but with an oversubscribed parking lot we could no longer wait.
We don't want people to turn away because parking spaces can't be found. By having two identical services, we can immediately alleviate much of the parking problem.
Beginning this Sunday, September 24, our new Sunday morning schedule will include two identical worship services with the same preacher and the same music in the Worship Center for both services. The new Sunday Schedule will be:
- First Worship Service 8:30 – 9:45 am (Nursery and Children’s Church offered)
- Sunday School 10:00 – 10:50 am
- Coffee, Cookies and Conversation 10:50 – 11:15 am
- Second Worship Service 11:15 am – 12:30 pm (Nursery and Children’s Church offered)
How fitting is it that God in His providence gave all of us James 3:17 this past Sunday?
But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.
This is one of the most exciting and stretching times in the history of our church. Please be in prayer for our Session, staff and me as we prayerfully seek to lead and serve to the glory of God with wisdom from above. Also pray that God would draw many unchurched people to Himself through the ministry of CEPC.
Walking by faith,
Richard Harris, Senior Pastor
