What’s Happening

New services go live 10:30 AM (MST) on Sundays.

Howdy y’all, Pastor Jeremy here.
If you’re like me, you miss seeing people’s faces and interacting with folks on Sunday morning. Community is part of worship, and we miss that. So here’s my attempt to do something about it.
This Sunday May 31st at 10 AM we’re going to have another Pastor Jeremy’s Big Check In. It’s a big Zoom call that anyone is invited to. Think of it like a foyer – you know, the first room you walk into when you come to church? You’d grab a cup of coffee and mingle with folks and check-in before the start of worship? That’s what I’m trying to re-create here. Sure, it’ll be a little loud and chaotic, and people will come and go, but that’s what a normal foyer is like, right?

If you’re interested, email me at pastor@circleofpeacechurch.com, let me know who you are if it’s not obvious from your email, and I’ll send you the invite. (Sorry if this is clunky, because of security concerns with Zoom, we will need to take this step). Hit us up, we’d love to see your face!

In this season of distancing, it is easy to start to feel disconnected from those around us. That is why it is so important for us to be intentional about connecting with this community and seeking support from one another. We believe prayer to be the vehicle for both! In the next few weeks, we are asking our community to take the 2×4 prayer challenge: pray for at least 2 households connected to our community over the next 4 weeks! That’s it! If you have any questions or if you want to be in on the challenge, contact Jaime Howard (jaime@circleofpeacechurch.com) for more details.

Circle of Peace is in partnership with House of Refuge through the Men’s group and the Women’s group. In January we committed to serving in different ways. We collected personal hygiene items in March and in June we will be collecting cases of bottled water.

I am willing to take it to House of Refuge if you can purchase it. If it is not convenient for you to drop at my home, I will pick it up and deliver it. Louene Trout 717- 742-8470

Thank you for all your generosity.

Keep your children connected! 
We offer Christian education classes every Sunday at 1 pm for kids K-5th via Zoom. Reach out to Mrs. Jaime for more information or check out Kids at Circle on Facebook for the curriculum/videos and information on how to reinforce the lessons at home!

For Youth we offer Zoom classes Sundays at 2 pm. Parents, there is a Facebook page. Teens can find us on IG!

Thank you for those that attended our Mug Filler on May 23rd! It was wonderful to share some time together.
The women of Circle of Peace will begin a devotional study, “100 Days of Jesus”, June 1st. You can follow along daily on the Women at Circle Facebook page, or you can purchase it here for $10. The first meeting to discuss will be June 6th, 8am, and the second, June 17th, 8pm.
If you are available to bring dinner for the women at House of Promise please contact Ashley Brown, 631-605-1885. There are June dates available.
Before the days of COVID-19, Circle of Peace Church took communion together on the first Sunday of every month.  We still believe in the body and blood of Jesus, so we want to invite you to try something new together.  At the end of the online worship service on Sunday June 7, we’re going to take communion in our homes.  To get ready, just get some bread and juice, and have them handy when you join the service at 10:30 AM.  It’s not the same as being in the same room at the same time, but it is one way we can remember Jesus together.
Blessings,
Pastor Jeremy Ashworth
