One of the benefits of living in the Methow is that it's easy to get away from "light pollution" and simply get lost in the night sky. This youtube video shows time-lapse video of the sky as the earth rotates. It's beautiful and awe-inspiring! See the video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L71nt62ddPk
As the David says in Psalm 8:
When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers— the moon and the stars you set in place--
This Sunday, October 20th, we're continuing through our IMMERSE: PROPHETS series and we'll be reflecting on the majesty of God by looking at Isaiah 40. Take some time in the coming days and nights to admire God's creation and consider how His majesty is revealed through it.
The Potty Project
Last Spring a group of men from the Methow traveled down to Mexico to work on an addition to the "Ninos Con Fe" orphanage. The additional space has allowed them to take in 20 more abandoned children - at least 5 of whom have accepted Christ in the past few months!
However, the additional bathroom facilities (including showers) have not yet been completed due to a lack of funds. So we've begun the "Potty Project" to rectify this problem. During the month of October we're collecting donations with the goal of reaching $5000. We're well on our way with nearly $4000 already raised!
We invite you to prayerfully consider making a contribution to this effort. Checks can be made payable to "CCC" with a note indicating the "Potty Project" and mailed to the church or deposited in our special "Outhouse Bank" near the photo board in Fellowship Hall. There's a toilet paper tower indicating our progress towards the $5000 goal. Thanks for joining us in sharing the love of Jesus with these precious children in a VERY practical way!
A year ago we hosted a workshop led by Steve Burger from our denominational headquarters in Chicago. During that time together, we brainstormed and prayerfully set a course of action to strengthen our children's ministry and help to equip parents to become spiritual nurturers for their kids.
Steve will be returning for a time of evaluation and next steps on Thursday, October 24th. We'll begin the evening with dinner at 5:30 followed by the workshop from 6:00-8:00. All adults are invited to take part in this informative and exciting time. Child care will be provided.
