Though we cannot be physically present with one another at this time, there are more and more events being scheduled to find ways of gathering via the internet. We are starting to post those on our calendar. Please check the church calendar to find a movie to watch “together,” a discussion group, a virtual meal… as sheltering in place continues, we will look for more and more ways to connect over the phone and the web. (Not all events have been updated yet… please be patient as we edit our calendar to match our current situation. Please contact the event’s host if you have questions about it. There are currently NO in-person events happening at the church, even if the location indicates it’s on campus.)
We want to pray with you
Now more than ever, our prayers are needed and our prayers connect us. We want to know your prayer needs, and each week the bulletin‘s “Joys and Concerns” section will include those you’ve indicated you want to be public. Each week, the pastoral care team gives prayerful attention to the congregation’s joys and concerns. Many of these come with a request to hold the contents in confidence; therefore they are not published below in the Joys and Concerns. The wonderful thing about prayer is one doesn’t need a specific reason in order to lift another in the light of love and care. Please know that many in your CCSM community are facing challenges and experiencing both emotional and physical pain; so even though a prayer need may not be made public, please hold your brothers and sisters in your heart. Since this is an online document now, we are omitting phone numbers and addresses. Please check your directory or go to MyCCSM to find phone numbers and addresses to send cards.
In order to let us know of your prayer requests, there are several ways to do so. Call (650-343-3694) or email the church office–please let us know if you wish it to be in Joys and Concerns or confidential) or fill out our prayer request form here:
It’s an uncertain time for everyone right now, and many organizations are in need of resources at a time when giving is down. Every week we make a gift to one of the organizations we sponsor, and you are encouraged to continue giving generously to our “plate offering” organizations even as we are not physically gathering. Here are several ways to give:
• You can also TEXT a gift to the church. Text 73256 and type in either CCSM Plate $ (with the amount) or CCSM General $ (with the amount). You will receive a response text that asks you to click on an included link.
• Of course, you may always send in a check to the church office (225 Tilton Ave., San Mateo, CA 94401).
