Caregiving Bingo

Hopefully, you’ll be yelling BINGO as you fill out this ‘Caregiving Bingo’ sheet, made in partnership with our local NOVA Churches!

Featuring boxes for self-care, prayer, and calling people without internet access or in nursing homes, this caregiving edition of bingo encourages us to look at how we are caring for the needs of every person in the community in this time.

So print this out and use pen or use your best photoshopping skills, but we’d love to see your bingo card! Email a picture of your card to the church office or post it on Facebook and tag @nokesvillecob!

No photo description available.

Will you have a bingo? More than one? How many bingos do you think we’ll have altogether? Let’s find out!

Thank You for Donating Your Dimes

Harper Buettner attended a district Jr. High retreat earlier this year where David Radcliff was the speaker. David is the director for New Community Profit (NCP), a small non-profit organization that works to educate about global social justice and environmental concerns and providing ways to take action. Harper was inspired by a conversation where she learned that it only costs 10 cents to fund a day of school for girls in Nepal and South Sudan, so she collected dimes to show her support! Thank you for your generous support of NCP’s Give A Girl A Chance initiative. She raised $419.00. Way to go Harper!.

Thank You from the Finance Team

 

We have been blessed with a congregation that never fails to provide financial support to our church and we want to make sure you know how much we appreciate your continued giving during this very strange and stressful time.  We also thought you would like to know about projects that have been completed during our time of social distancing.  The window trim and painting is done, a disability access ramp at the entrance from the parking lot has been installed, a major repair was completed on the furnace and the carpets have been cleaned.  These projects would not have been possible without you.   Thank you!

 

Holy Week Worship Services

 

 

Even though we are not together in person, it is good to “gather” in worship from wherever we are, and reflect on this most holy journey to the empty tomb.

Love Feast – Thursday, April 9 at 7:00 PM  (YouTube)
Go to www.VirtualLoveFeast.com, and click on the “YouTube” button. The first voices you hear will be familiar to you – Pastor Angela, Lucas, and Eric open the evening with a reading from the Gospel of John. You’ll hear them again later in the service, along with many other voices you may recognize: Tim and Audrey Hollenburg-Duffy; Mandy North; Matt Rittle; Richard Wehrle; Bill Scheurer from On Earth Peace; Steve Schweitzer, Dan Ulrich, and Denise Kettering-Lane, all from Bethany Seminary; and many more.

This time of worship features familiar Scripture, hymns, and invitations to confession and communion.

We would like to invite you to partake in communion in your home. Please have your bread or cracker and cup of liquid ready.

At the 38 minute mark, you’ll hear the Scripture for Communion and a Prayer by Pastor Matt Rittle.

Please pause the service on your computer to share these words of communion – knowing we are all sharing together.

This bread, which we bless, is the
communion of the body of Christ.
[eat with grateful hearts]

This cup, which we bless, is the
communion of the blood of Christ.
[drink with grateful hearts]

Please press play to continue the service as we worship together.

Good Friday Service – Friday, April 10 at 7:30 PM (YouTube)

This brief service is being offered by members of our congregation.  Go to https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQciNsGk2y-ELiRTIXJe1Hw

and select “Good Friday”.  Feel free to light your own candle, and then extinguish it as Suzie plays the haunting spiritual “Were you there?”

Feel free to share these links with your friends.  We will see you Sunday morning at 11 AM on the church Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/Nokesvillecob/ – for a joyous Easter celebration.

 

Invitation to Virtual Love Feast

 

 

This Thursday, April 9, at 7:00 PM, we will be gathering around our computers to share in Virtual Love Feast.  The other Northern Virginia churches will be gathering at the same time, so our fellowship is deep and wide.

Go to www.VirtualLoveFeast.com, and click on the “YouTube” button.  The first voices you hear will be familiar to you – Pastor Angela, Lucas, and Eric open the evening with a reading from the Gospel of John.  You’ll hear them again later in the service, along with many other voices you may recognize:  Tim and Audrey Hollenburg-Duffy; Mandy North; Matt Rittle; Richard Wehrle; Bill Scheurer from On Earth Peace; Steve Schweitzer, Dan Ulrich, and Denise Kettering-Lane, all from Bethany Seminary; and many more.

This time of worship features familiar Scripture, hymns, and invitations to confession and communion.

We would like to invite you to partake in communion in your home.  If you are local-ish, please contact Pastor Angela if you’d like to participate by Tuesday evening.  On Wednesday, she will bring you a “communion packet” and set it outside your door – with a wave and a smile!

Prior to the start of the service, you’ll need to fill your cup with the liquid of your choice, but the cups and bread will be provided, along with instructions.

If you are not local, and would still like to participate, please prepare a drink and cracker of some sort.

At the 38 minute mark, you’ll hear the Scripture for Communion and a Prayer.
Please pause the service on your computer to share these words of communion – knowing we are all sharing together.
