Faithful Resilience: Building a Resilient Community in
the Face of Climate Change
October 3rd – November 27th @
Christ Church United Methodist
In the midst of an ever-lengthening fire season, we can no longer pretend that climate change is something in the future. It is happening now, and we, as a church have the power to decide decide how we will respond. This fall, we’ll examine themes related to the land, migration, and the present moment; trusting that with God’s help we can grow our resiliency, and be a force of good in the world.
In addition to focusing on this theme in Sunday worship, Christ Church will sponsor weekly discussion groups beginning Oct 17. Both in-person and online, these groups are open to anyone in the wider community, and so you’re encouraged to invite friends, neighbors, and family members.
The proposed times are: Sundays, after worship, in person at CCUM; Tuesdays 2-3 pm, Zoom; Tuesdays 7-8 pm, Zoom; Thursdays 7-8 pm, Zoom.
Please RSVP your interest, and whether you’d prefer in-person or online, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sunday, October 17 at 12 noon, Christ Church United Methodist
We know that something needs to change. But we are so overwhelmed by the anxiety of covid, climate change, and social upheaval. And we are already so tired that we find ourselves wondering if there is anyway we, as individuals, can make a difference.
That is why we need Beloved Community. To face the enormity of the problems around us, we need to ground ourselves in faith, bind ourselves together in hope, and work as one for justice and peace.
Friends from North Bay Organizing Project and Christ Church United Methodist want to build Beloved Community with you. We invite you to join us either in-person or on Zoom for a time of sharing our hopes, growing in relationship, and learning about how we can work together for social transformation.
*In-person participants must wear face masks, and abide by other safety protocol.
Please remember that although our doors are temporarily closed, the work of Christ Church goes on as we continue to provide care for members of our community during this time. Like many organizations, we are facing financial hardship from loss of rental income.
Honoring your pledge commitment is essential to our work. Please continue your support by mailing your check to CCUM, 1717 Yulupa Ave, Santa Rosa 95405 or dropping it thru the office mail slot.
Also, we are happy to announce we now provide a very easy
online giving option on our "Give" page.

Your consistent support is much appreciated at Christ Church
and throughout our community. Thank you!
Come join us in worship! We gather on-line Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. (see link above)
Our worship is a time to be present to God, to celebrate the gift of community, and to grow in our spiritual lives. After the service, join our Time for Reflection group as they explore the deeper meanings of the worship message.
Music invites us to move deeply into our worship life together! Our congregation loves to sing contemporary hymns. Our choir, led by Carol-Jean Boevers, inspires us with a variety of offerings. Musical instrumentalists, including our talented accompanist, Carl Sokol, join in to enhance the worship experience.
Holy Communion is often celebrated on the first Sunday of each month. You do not need to be a member of Christ Church United Methodist or any church to receive the bread and cup.
All are welcome at God's table.
