communitynightCokesbury Community Night !

We begin each Wednesday evening with a catered meal at 5:30 PM.  Starting at 6:00 PM the program modules will begin.  Two modules will be ongoing and do not require signing up to attend.

The first is a Tutorial/Homework session for children and teenagers.  The other is games for all ages.

The second two modules are going to be of limited duration.  The first two classes will be “bible Study for Dummies” and “Country Western Dancing Lessons”.  These classes do not require any special skills to join, but will be limited in how many people can attend.

We have a whole list of other classes that we want to offer following these.  The list of classes offered will depend on the number of people interested in taking the class.

At 7:00 pm we will wrap things up and send people home or to the other music activities within Cokesbury.

This exciting new event is the result of a decision by the Church Council to focus all of our energies on a single ministry for this year.  You and your family are invited to attend every Wednesday evening as we eat, fellowship and learn together.

Souper Bowl of Caring

Souper_Bowl_of_Caring_Logo_with_Web_Address

America’s youth are transforming the time around the Super Bowl into the nation’s largest celebration of giving and serving through the Souper Bowl of Caring.

Last year, youth across the nation collected $10 million for charities through participating in Souper Bowl of Caring. I  encourage you to get involved with this simple movement of God’s love in 2015.  On Souper Bowl Sunday, February 1 our youth will collect one-dollar donations in large soup pots as everyone leaves church.

All the money raise will be given to SouthEast Area Ministries to help feed, cloth, provide other assistance to those in need.

3rd-grade-bibles-slider-940x410   Calling all third graders

Are you ready for your own special bible? A four week class Bible class is about to start for our third graders. The class is to introduce special information about the Bible and help the kids learn how to use their Bible. After attending the four week class, the kids will be issued a special Bible during worship.

If you are a third grader, please sign up on the children’s ministry board. For those in fourth or fifth that have not been issued a Bible, you are welcome to sign up as well. The Third Grade Bible Presentation is an important part of a child’s life. For more information, contact Alison Myers, at cokesburychildren@yahoo.com or at 281-484- 9243.

Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper

Tuesday, February 17, 2015         5 – 7 p.m.

What does “Shrove” mean?  In modern English, the word ‘Shrove’ has no meaning outside of pancake or Shrove Tuesday.  Academics can trace shrove to the past tense of the verb shrive, which itself means absolution.  This derivation helps to cement the meaning of eating up luxury food before the penance of fasting during Lent.

Come out and enjoy fellowship with your friends. We will be serving pancakes, waffles, bacon, sausage, juice and all the trimmings.
