UPCOMING EVENTS


02/23 Donations for Period Kits Needed

We've talked about the homeless needing food. We've talked about low income families needing diapers. We've talked about building homes for Habitat for Humanity. We've even talked about donating pet food for low income families.


What about homeless or low income women who need to buy products every month to take care of their periods? Geoff Davis, Executive Director of Period Kits, spoke during worship and shared stories of women using newspaper or buying diapers but stealing tampons because they can't afford sanitary supplies each month.


Christ Church is collecting products now through February 23. We need:

tampons

packs of underwear (size 6-9)

pads

panty liners

feminine wipes (NOT baby wipes)

These will be assembled into kits for Period Kits which will be handed out to homeless women. Need more info? check out www.periodkits.org or email Sue Fager, suefager@gmail.com.

What's Happening in the Western Jurisdiction of the UMC?

A group of leaders from across the United Methodist Church, Progressives, Traditionalists, Centrists, Bishops, Reconciling Ministries Network, United Methodist Queer Clergy Caucus, and others, met with a mediator over the past several months and have announced a proposal for separation of the United Methodist Church. This agreement, Protocol of Reconciliation & Grace Through Separation, was agreed to unanimously, would need to be approved by a vote at General Conference 2020 in May to take effect. You can read the press release here.  


"Chopped" Sermons

For the four Sundays of February, our sermon series will be "Chopped - Sermons." The people of Christ Church are invited and encouraged to submit three things:

Scripture or passage from the Bible.

Popular culture reference (scene from a film or the whole film, TV show (That Rev. Sharon might actually know), book, song, etc.)

Quote or saying by a well-known person.

Rev. Sharon will take those items and create a sermon using all three to be shared on the following Sunday. Submissions must be submitted to Rebecca, office@ChristChurchColorado.org or Rev. Sharon, SLangfeldt@ChristChurchColorado.org, by noon on Wednesday to be used for the following Sunday.


In Need of a Prayer Quilt?

Do you know someone who could benefit from a tangible reminder that they are covered in the prayers of this community? We have several prayer quilts ready to be prayed over and then go to individuals who are going through a challenging time, whether due to illness, grief, or any other life circumstance. Please contact Rebecca Bourgeois, office@ChristChurchColorado.org and she will help you through the process of obtaining a prayer quilt.
