Anniversary Buzz

College Hill has been preparing for its 100th Anniversary. While our building won't be 100 until next year, the congregation was started in June 1907 in the school that used to stand behind our present building. Next week we have a wonderful weekend of celebration. If you have the opportunity, stop by 33rd and Fifth Avenue in the College Hill Area.

Friday Night, June 1 - 7:00 p.m. - Old Style "Throwback" Service. We will try to put our sanctuary in much of the same configuration from the early 1900's. Ice Cream Social to follow. Our Pastor Emeritus will be preaching.

Saturday afternoon, June 2 - from 2-4, we are holding a street fair next to the church. Catch the "Wild World Of Animals at 2:30. But don't miss our contemporary Worship at 4:30 in the sanctuary. The message is entitled, "Now more than ever." We will be looking at what it means to love the Lord with all of our heart, mind, soul, and strength.

Sunday, June 3, we are going to be worshipping together at 11:00 a.m. with a covenant for ministry and a reconsecration of our church for the next century of ministry. Several pastors from the past will be participating. Our theme for the day is "Have Thine Own Way, Lord" and the message will be, "Without God, we are nothing." Do we allow God to mold and form us, like a potter would clay?

We are so excited at CHUM. We are blessed by all that God is doing in our lives and we hope that you will join us.

I'm glad God brought you there to help launch their NEXT century of ministry. I have no doubt it will be great and that your leadership is a blessing to the people of College Hill and the community.

Wish I could be there...I do plan to visit College Hill UMC this summer as part of my WPAUMC Blogroll tour. I look forward to hearing you preach. Have a great 100th.
