- Regular CMC activities have been suspended or are taking place virtually on the internet. The church office is closed. Please contact CMC staff via email, phone, or mail.
- We strongly recommend that small groups NOT meet in person for the time being. However, some small groups may decide to meet through zoom or other virtual connections. CMC can facilitate your zoom meetings by scheduling them through Ben Bailey, contact him by email. And there are other creative ways which small groups (and others throughout CMC) can maintain connections with each other. If your small group is finding creative ways to be in contact, to pray for each other, to share art, poems, spiritual reflections, or to support each other, we'd love to hear about them, and share ideas with one another. We welcome you sharing ideas/practices with Pastor Byron, and he'll be in contact whether it's appropriate to share with others. We CAN reach out to one another in these challenging days.
- We have formed an Advisory Team composed of health care professionals and church leaders who can give guidance and recommendations for best practices regarding our community life and ministry. Kristina Landis Yoder is leading the team, which includes Alden Hostetter, Sue Klassen, Pastor Jennifer Davis Sensenig, and Council Chair Jeremy Nafziger.
- Contact Ben Bailey to arrange zoom meetings for small groups, Sunday school, or other church meetings.
- During the pandemic, our newsletter will still be distributed every Wednesday via email. If you need to be added to the list or wish to add an announcement, contact Ben Bailey.
