Worship Worksheets and Prayerful Playmates

 

There are someoptions for the younger members of our community to assist with their experience in the worship service. For our youngest children, parents are welcome to encourage children to find a "Prayerful Playmates" bag to fill with items from our Children's Library. In the Children's Library (just outside the sanctuary on the north end of the narthex), you can grab crayons or colored pencils, books, small activities, and various coloring sheets.

 

For our older children and young youth, there are Worship Worksheets. These relate to the worship theme and have different activities to assist children and youth in fully engaging the worship experience. Watch for them at the Welcome Center in the Children's Library or from Rev. Megan.

(ccumdenver) too. If you have photos from CCUM activities in past years like weddings, baptisms, your children in children's programs or similar that you would like to see used as a Throw Back Thursday post please send it to ccumdenversocialmedia@gmail.com.

CEB Bibles

 

As Rev. Eric mentioned last spring in an Epistle, we have changed to the Common English Version of the Bible. This shift happened along with the change in the UMC. If you would like to purchase a copy of the CEB Bible, we will be placing an order for the Student Version on October 1. This is the Youth/Young Adult version although the text is the same as the adult copy. In the Student Version, you can find a published devotional prayer by our own Elizabeth Blackmun. The Bibles are $22 each. Please contact Rev. Megan if you are interested.

Disaster Relief

 

As hurricane and wildfire cleanup continues, the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is hard at work. UMCOR is known around the world for its recovery response and is often the last organization to leave an area. One hundred percent of donations to UMCOR go to direct aid. Please consider giving to UMCOR or follow the link to the Yellowstone Conference and designate your gift to "Yellowstone Conference Disaster Relief".

 

Donate online to UMCOR's US Disaster Response Advance Project #901670
