CNC Christmas Year Round – Sewing for OCC Boxes

We had lots of gorgeous material to use for our dresses.

Join us as we sew items for our Operation Christmas Child (OCC) boxes.

  • Our current projects are: Cloth pads with bags, pillowcase dresses, small bags and dolls.
  • We meet once a month at Cordova Neighborhood Church, 6:00pm. The dates are as follows: May 19 … June 29 … July 28 … August 25 … September 29 …. October 20.
  • Have questions? Contact Lucy Baptista. Or leave a comment here.

Don’t sew? Don’t want to come out on a Friday night to put together these items?

  • There is a way for you to be involved.
  • We are collecting items for OCC boxes.

THANKS so much to those of you who donated during April.

During May we are collecting assorted items. Drop off at the Church.

  • Marbles, jacks or Legos to fill the small bags we’ve sewed.
  • Brightly coloured cotton material with matching bias tape. 2 yards of material is enough for one pillow case dress and matching doll.
  • Shoe boxes: either empty card board shoe boxes or quality plastic boxes (the size of a shoe box).

Of course you can still drop off non-liquid personal care items: comb, hair brushes, toothbrush with holder, soap with holder, flash light with extra batteries, etc. NO TOOTHPASTE.

Our Facebook group address is as follows: https://www.facebook.com/groups/402694376774970/

Your Turn . . .

  1. Do you participate in OCC?
  2. If you make items for your box(es), what do you make?

 CNC Women’s Small Group to Start Monday, November 16th

Naomi and Ruth StudyCNC women are good at loving on one other. We honor each other with parties, listen well to each other, and we go out on Sundays after church. We want to connect better with one another and this is shown by things like our involvement in small groups, Secret Sister, and the mentoring program we had a couple of years ago.

But is there a better way for us to connect? Can we connect with more intention? I say the answer is, “Yes.”

On Monday, November 16th, there will be a new study for women. The book is Face-to-Face with Naomi and Ruth: Together for the Journey.

“Through the story of Naomi and Ruth, women will discover the power of committing to one another for the journey of faith in a relationship based on mutual caring and sharing.

  • 2 small groups will begin on Monday, November 16th. One will be from 1:30-3pm. The other study will be from 7-8:30pm.
  • We’ll discuss chapter 1 (in class) on that date. It is a five-week study.
  •  The price for a book is $9.75 (through Amazon). It is $4.99 (plus tax) on Kindle.
  • I’ve ordered 8 books; so let me know today, if you’d like one. At present there is a back order on books.
  • Of course you can go to a local book store to pick up your copy.

If this goes well and there is interest, we will have a one-on-one mentoring program in 2016.

Contact me today, if you have any questions and to RSVP “YES.” JOIN us in this small group, it will be time well spent.

Benefits of Tea Drinking Seep Into Annual Missions Tea

I like cookies with tea. Both the cookies and the tea are Earl Grey based. I love the cookies layered with orange frosting. What is your favourite item to pair with tea?

I like cookies with tea. Both the cookies and the tea are Earl Grey based. I love the cookies layered with orange frosting. What is your favourite item to pair with tea?

There is no disputing that teas provide wonderful, even miraculous, health benefits. What are  some of the health benefits, you ask?

The white, green and herbal teas are said to help with the following . . .  Aging . . .  Nervous tension and stress . . .  Skin irritations like acne, eczema, and wrinkles, and . . .  Weight loss.

You certainly can drink tea all on your own and reap the above benefits. But, how much more fun to drink with a table full of friends (or soon to become friends).

On Saturday, March 14th, 11am-1pm, Cordova Neighborhood Church will have 12 tables full of ladies and tea for our annual missions tea. We will start with the worship portion of the tea. This includes music, prayer, and time with our speaker, Marcia Braum.

Then we will move into Rudat Hall and have tea and appetizers (provided by each guest for their own table).

At the end of our TEA we won’t be . . . 

  • looking younger
  • have nicer skin
  • skinnier

But I bet we can say we feel . . .

  • more connected to one another
  • excited about what God is doing in Missions
  • this was a satisfying and fun way to spend the afternoon

YOUR TURN . . . Sign up TODAY by leaving a comment below or call the church office: 635-5992. . . . Which one is your favourite health benefit?

Come to this Tea and get pampered by your table hostess. You'll also learn about how Missions impacts our world.

Come to this Tea and get pampered by your table hostess. You’ll also learn about how Missions impacts our world.

Does your morning include a unique ritual? For some, like the monkey in the video below, tea is a necessary part of the morning.

And for some ladies, CNC’s Annual Missionary Tea is a necessary part of the Spring. Like this monkey, we will be offered a delicious brew, many choice foods, and even affection. However, there will be no grooming or jumping on rickshaws.

Take action today.

  • Sign up today as a guest  for the tea on Saturday, March 14th. Reply to this post or call me at the church office (635-5992).
  • Think about what tea-food item you’ll bring for your table of ladies. Your table hostess will co-ordinate this.
  • Watch this video for grins.

Which Tea is NOT for Human Consumption? This Won’t be Served at CNC’s Annual Tea (Feb. 8)

Sign up as a "guest" or "hostess." We only need 4 more hostesses.

Sign up as a “guest” or “hostess.” We only need 4 more hostesses.

Which one of the following teas does NOT promote health for the body?

  • White
  • Green
  • Compost
  • Herbal

If you guessed compost tea, you would be correct. Compost tea is a tea for the garden.

It is decomposed, nutrient-rich organic matter that is then recycled as fertilizer … soil conditioner, natural pesticide, erosion control, and landfill cover.

SIGN UP TODAY to be part of CNC’s Annual Tea.

  • No Compost Tea Served.
  • It is Saturday, February 8, 1-3 pm at CNC.

NOTE: If you are thinking about being a hostess, I can email you the details.
