What’s In A Book?

Sometimes, a lot. Take the Bible for instance. There’s a lot in there. Just try sitting down and reading through it one time. You’ll discover a lot of stuff that has to do with God, people, history, geography, culture, the spiritual, the supernatural, the future, yourself, Jesus Christ, and much more.

Of course all books are not equal. Usually the ones that take a long time to develop are worth the read. This Sunday at 1:00 PM we’re going to premiere a new book, “Reflections on a Long Life,” by seasoned author, Elizabeth Krynski.

At 92, Elizabeth is the oldest member of CA. In addition to her work as an author, she is a former teacher and an accomplished violinist. Until her husband’s death in 1989 she was married for 37 years to Magnus John Krynski, former chairman of Slavic languages at Duke University. Her book contains her biography, poetry, and other writings. This is a book with a lot worth reading and learning.

CA is very pleased to host a reception and book signing Sunday at 1:00 PM. Copies of “Reflections of a Long Life” will be available at no charge and the public is invited to attend. Why don’t you join us for church at either 9:00 or 11:00 AM and stick around for the reception? You’ll get to meet the author and receive a free signed copy of the book. We think you’ll find the insights the author shares worth your time. Hope to see you at CA on Sunday.

Prayer & Fasting

This Wednesday thru Friday all the members of CA are going to participate in three days of prayer and fasting for one of our members who is living with cancer. Now why would we do that?

Fasting is one way that we can get beyond our natural tendency toward being self-centered and begin to get closer to God’s heart and mind. As we deny ourselves of the food our bodies crave, our spirit has the chance to hear and feel what God hears and feels. As we pray and fast we become more attuned to the spiritual nature of our relationship and communication with God. We begin to touch, human Spirit to Holy Spirit. If you haven’t ever tried it, or want to just stretch spiritually, you can join us. Skip a meal, or part of your normal diet, or even take a day off from food altogether and whenever you think about it, pray. Talk with God and see what happens.

We’re expecting to hear from God about our friend’s health. What is it that you want from God? Check out the Sermons link to hear more.

“For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.” ~ Romans 8:14

What does it mean to be led by God’s Spirit? Have you ever wanted to do the right thing but found yourself doing exactly the opposite? It was almost like you had an irresistible urge. What is that and how do you overcome it?

In this new series of messages we’re examining the struggle that goes on inside of each of us, and learning how we can follow God wholeheartedly. If you are tired of wrestling for control of your thoughts and actions, we have good news for you! The Spirit-Led Life provides the answer. Come and learn God’s way to contentment.

Our Sunday services are at 9:00 & 11:00 AM with children’s ministry at 11:00 and nursery during the message at both services. Dress is casual.
