Thank you, Immanuel Lutheran Church!

Thursday, January 29th, 2015

As a newly forming congregation, we are blessed to have financial and prayerful support from the national and regional offices of the Lutheran Church (ELCA). We are also blessed with some more personal connections closer to home. This month, for the second year in a row, Immanuel Lutheran Church (downtown, by REI) gifted us with $250 from their endowment fund. Thanks be to God for the generosity of partner churches who are helping us as we grow!

Stewardship

Thursday, January 29th, 2015

Through this community of faith, God offers us the incredible privilege of being the face and hands and feet of God for each other and for this beautiful, hurting world. As we begin a new year of life together in community, we are asking you to consider making a pledge: to commit to a certain amount that feels right for you and giving on a regular weekly or monthly basis.

If you find a spiritual home at Columbia City Church of Hope, we invite you to make a regular financial contribution throughout 2015 and beyond. Pledge cards are available here, for financial gifts as well as for volunteering of time and talents. Please turn in your pledge card in the offering plate or to columbiacityhope@gmail.com and help us get to our goal of $30,000!

You may set up a recurring donation through the secure link on our website.

Carousel, Feb 5 – Mar 1

Thursday, January 29th, 2015

We’re planning a community outing to see Carousel, playing February 5 to March 1. A tempestuous love story told with heart-breaking tenderness, Carousel follows the passionate romance between carnival barker Billy Bigelow and mill worker Julie Jordan. After his untimely death, Billy is given one day – a final chance to redeem his life – he returns to the wife and daughter he left behind to make things right. Come see Jeremy and his troupe as they dance to this Rodger and Hammerstein classic. If you’re interested, please contact Philip.
