We have several groups in our congregation. Learn more about each of them and some of their activities.
Mary martha women's group
This group takes its name from the story of Mary and Martha in the Gospel, who both serve and sit at the foot of the Lord. The Mary Martha Circle is open to all women, and meets regularly on the first Thursday of each month at 1:30 PM (except January and February). Contact Carolyn B. for fellowship information.
Mary Martha recently celebrated their 120th anniversary! Although the Church was established in 1894, the women's group was first started in 1897.
In 2017, Mary Martha formed a crochet group. So far, they have created and donated 50 handmade headbands to St Jude's Children's Hospital in Memphis, 50 to Shriner's in St. Louis, 50 to Camp Rainbow, and they have had a request for 100 more to be sent to Cardinal Glennon in St. Louis which is our current weekly project.
ucc group (union of concerned christians)
This is a couples and singles group with few meetings, but many activities. With a good mixture of service projects and "fun" events, there's something here for everyone! Good fellowship and caring support are primary goals of the group. Contact Kaye L. for more information.
The big event that this group holds is the annual apple butter making. Our process is the same as it has been for years; cooking apples in copper kettles over open fires. Each year, the event is held the end of September.
ASAP Youth Group
Always Say A Prayer youth group meets every month for fellowship, devotion, and service. All youth are encouraged to participate. Contact Carolyn B. for details.
We gather Sunday mornings in the multipurpose room at 9:00 AM. Classes begin at 9:30 AM.
Grades 1, 2, 3
Grades 4, 5, 6
Kindergarten and younger will be provided as needed!
We're always looking for new teachers or class "shepherds," so please contact Roxie L. or Carolyn B. Substitute teachers are also needed.
Confirmation is the affirmation of baptism. Baptism provides entry into the worldwide community of the Christian church. Confirmation is the renewal of the baptismal covenant, and reaffirmation of the parent's commitment made for the child at infant baptism. Its purpose is to strengthen faith and to initiate a life-long process of learning and faith growth.
Anyone between the ages of 12 and 14 interested in attending classes should contact the church office. If the need is present, arrangements can be made for a new class this fall!
Adults who wish to join Christ Evangelical Church and who have not been baptized and confirmed by another Christian congregation are encouraged to complete a faith formation study. This study is tailored to each individual's needs. Please contact Pastor Dan to discuss developing your individual study plan.
