THE EBENEZER PROJECT


These are scary times.  The world is different.  Routines are different. 
God remains the same.
God loves us and wants to help us.
In the Old Testament, Samuel raises an “Ebenezer”, a stone of help,
to remind the Israelites of what they had been through
and how God had and will continue to be a help in times of trouble.

You are invited to raise an Ebenezer at CHPC
to mark the ways our community remained helpful, kind and compassionate
to one another. It is our hope that the flower bed will become full of
beautiful, colorful rocks to remind us of the time we spent apart
but also how we helped each other along the way.

Beginning Saturday, May 2, take a rock from the basket outside the ramp entrance,
or one you have at home.  Color or paint it. 
Write a name of a helper, a name of someone you want to remember,
an image you carry during this time. Then, following all social distancing protocols,
return the rock to the large flower bed. Questions or if you need supplies,
please contact Pastor Susan at

associate@collegehillpc.org or by phone at 610-253-4792.


 

SAVE THE DATE

SUNDAY, JULY 12

CELEBRATING OUR PETS IN WORSHIP
 

July 12 is the day we will be
acknowledging and celebrating our pets in Sunday worship. 

Your pets will be welcome in the Zoom Worship meeting,
especially during the hymn, "All Creatures of Our God and King". 
We hope to see lots of pet faces on our Zoom screens.


 

A FUN ALTERNATIVE TO 

JOHNSONBURG SUMMER CAMP


We hope that in this difficult time, the #jburg2u kit can provide
all 2019 campers and those who registered for camp in 2020
with a little bit of jburg.  This kit includes some fun, meaningtul activities,
swag, and dfifferent ways to connect with camp.

Recognizing the limitations of this platform, #jburg2u is not meant to be
used as a VBS or Summer Camp experience, but rather an option
during a time in which people cannot come together pysically for programs.

The #jburg2u kits are meant for all ages. 
Churches, alumni, family, and friends are encouraged to purchase kits
for yourself and others.

And great news!  If you were a camper in the summer of 2019
or registered for camp in 2020, you will be receiving a #jburg2u kit for
FREE! 

For more information on how to order your #jburg2u kit,
how you can help, and find out what is included in the kit,

We're looking for a

VIRTUAL WORSHIP TEAM

 

We’ve been blessed to be able to worship
together via Zoom during the days of COVID-19. 
Thanks to the modern miracle of technology, our worship services
have continued to be meaningful and fruitful ways for our congregation
to connect on Sunday mornings.  We’ve heard from many of you that you hope
“virtual church” will be a permanent part of our worship offerings
even after we return to some form of worship in the sanctuary.

Are you a creative, out of the box thinker? 
Do you have access to and knowledge of Zoom, Facebook and
other online meeting/stream services?
We need your help! 
We’re looking for people who are interested in participating
in the planning and production of Sunday Morning Virtual Worship;
production managers, videographers, musicians and
creative/technical people of all kinds who can lend their talents to the church. 

Please email Pastor Merideth at pastor@collegehillpc.org and
let her know you’re interested. 

We’ll schedule a Zoom meeting in the next few weeks to brainstorm.
