Church T-Shirts This Weekend

I’ll plan to preach on Micah 6:1-8 this Sunday (January 29, 2023). In verse 8, Micah tells us that God desires that we do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with God. On our church t-shirts, this is phrased as “seek justice, love mercy, and walk humbly,” but the meaning is the same.

Livestream Fixes In Place

The tech crew has made several changes to our livestreaming system. These include increasing our internet transfer speed and throttling the wi-fi (to leave more data available for the livestream). Hopefully these will work. If you’re watching from home, please let us know whether it works or not. If we have problems, you can catch the recorded service later at

Worship — Sunday, January 8, 2023

We had some trouble with our internet service provider while attempting to livestream the service this morning, but things seem to be alright with the recorded service above and below.

Here’s the YouTube link:

Three Kings for Epiphany

Today (Friday, January 6, 2023) is Epiphany, best known for commemorating the visit of the Magi and the revelation of God’s salvation to the Gentiles. The classic hymn, We Three Kings, is inaccurate (for starters they weren’t kings, and the Bible tells us only that they brought three gifts), but we’ll still sang it this past Sunday Sunday (it is a classic for a reason). Here’s Blondie’s rendition in case you missed it.

Friday Office Hours

The College Avenue offices will be closed tomorrow morning (Friday, December 23, 2022), but we will be open from 1:00 until 4:00 in the afternoon. Please plan accordingly.

  • Our Christmas Eve Service will be on Saturday, December 24, at 7:30 p.m.
  • Our Christmas Day Service will be on Sunday, December 25, at 10:30 a.m. There will be no Sunday School.

Please remember that there will be no childcare for either service, but the service will be available via Closed Circuit TV in the comfort room just north of the Sanctuary.

Big Voice, Big Heart!

From Dawn Anderson:

William Michaels, son of Wendy and Wayne Michaels, and grandson of Jim Tubach, began singing in the CAUMC Cherub choir as a wee lad under the tutelage of Erma Riley. Our congregation has delighted in watching him grow in Christian faith and passion for music. He is now a blessing to young school children in Liberal, Kansas. Willie and his fiancé, Rachel Hunt, will sing a duet at our 7:30 p.m. Christmas Eve Service. Here’s a video of what he’s been up to lately.
