The world is full of so much “noise” right now. The talk of the pandemic, politics, schools opening, protests, and so much more is causing a cacophony of noise. It is overwhelming at times! While all of those things that are causing the noise are important, it is imperative that you take time away from the noise and find some quiet.
So many times in the Gospels, we see Jesus moving away from the noise and the crowds and going to a quiet place. He needed time away; time to think, time to pray, time to be in God’s presence in quiet and calm. He didn’t abandon the things causing the noise, but he took time to set himself apart from it and to be in communion with God.
We need to do the same thing Jesus did. Take time away from all of the noise and spend time with God. Turn off the television, shut down the computer, walk away from the noise and find a quiet spot. Listen to nature, listen to your heart, and listen to God. Rest your mind. Calm your heart. Find peace and renewal to be able to go out and face the noise again, replenished in God’s love and grace. It might just make this world a better place!
Grace and Peace,
Thank you for purchasing for the Food Pantry and
holding until the church can accept the items again.
The Food Pantry Item for September is: soup
The Fellowship Committee would like to bring a virtual County Fair/Talent Show to your home. We have not worked out the details (or the date), but we are inviting you to show us what is going on. Play an instrument, read a poem, display a quilt, show us your prettiest tomato/pumpkin/zucchini/flower; your new bunny rabbit or your old dog. Bring your i-pad out to the barn, up to the attic, or into your kitchen. We want to see the chocolate chip cookies coming out of the oven, and the pie cooling on the counter. Maybe you have painted or re-arranged a room. Maybe you have written a symphony. WE WANT TO KNOW ABOUT IT!! Look for more information soon!
We will celebrate communion on September 6, 2020
There is a devotional app members can look at that is available in the app store on your phone. It is called D365. You can also find this on our church website at cynthianapresbyterian.com.
We hope and pray everyone is doing well – please reach out if you have a need; we have volunteers ready to assist you! Tina is in the church office from 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM – Monday – Friday at 234-2961.
The Session will meet on Monday, September 14 at 7:00 PM by Zoom.
Cedar Ridge Service
Due to the Coronavirus, visitors are not allowed at Cedar Ridge, therefore
we will have no service there in September.
Meetings in September
Wednesday, September 2 – Main Cup Board meeting at noon
Thursday, September 3 – Worship Committee will meet by Zoom at 7:00 PM.
We will be brainstorming on how to do Advent season without being in the church.
We will continue meeting for Worship on Zoom.
You’ll be getting an email invitation to the worship service and you click on the link to participate.
The Session will address the topic again in January.
Of course, if there are any major changes during this time, the decision will be revisited sooner.
This will allow us to plan out the rest of the year rather than going month to month and will also relieve some of the stress of trying to make a decision each month.
We hope you all
understand that your health and safety are a top priority for us.
If you know anyone who would like to join us for Worship on Sunday mornings, please send their email address to Tina at firstname.lastname@example.org. It is an easy way to invite a friend!
Remember, we are the church wherever we are, not just in the building. Go out and BE the church!
Julie is available to anyone who would like to talk, message, or text. Her cell phone number is 606-831-8312.
Watch our church website, our church Facebook page, and your email for updates on upcoming decisions being made. A committee has been formed to help make decisions about our church and its functions during this time – the committee is: Greg Cooper, Neil Rush, Jay Sanders, and Julie Olt.
Church is online again on Sunday on the website here.
We hope and pray everyone is doing well – please reach out if you have a need; we have volunteers ready to assist you!
