Anabaptist Identity

Epiphany Season Worship 2014

As the New Year begins, we at CMC will focus on our Anabaptist identity. The first nine worship services of the year will feature themes and practices that characterize our heritage and current Christian life: Lord's Supper, Baptism, Gelassenheit (yieldedness), Rule of Paul (Open Meeting), Scripture, Peace, Fullness of Christ (Many Gifts), Rule of Christ (Reconciliation), Discipleship, and Proclaiming the Gospel.

Within this series, we'll have three Sundays (January 12, 19, and 26) of Membership Covenant Renewal. During these weeks, we invite members and associate members of CMC to prepare a short statement renewing their membership.

Our theme verse this year is Jeremiah 29:7:

Seek the SHALOM of the city where I have sent you into exile,
and pray to the LORD on its behalf,
for in its SHALOM you will find your SHALOM.
