Candlelight Meditation Practice – Tuesday, December 4th 6:00-7:30pm in Lanier Hall at CCC
The Christmas season is fast approaching.
Throughout the month of December, we usually have more responsibilities, more events to attend, and less time for ourselves.  While we all treasure time with family and friends, the resulting lack of stillness and quiet time can lead to imbalances in the physical and mental body.  It is important to connect with your breath daily to support being alive in the present moment.
As you actively participate in this festive season, give a gift to yourself. On December 4th, be prepared to nurture your mind, body, and spirit as we practice together by candlelight.
After setting a personal intention, you will be led through guided and mindfulness meditations.  There will be time after each practice to record thoughts and feelings.  With awareness comes the ability to nurture and respond to what you need.  In doing so, you will be better equipped to be fully present for each moment of this holiday season.
Cost: $20. To register, contact Susan Short at susnat@ameritech.net or call (847) 217-8987

Sermon in the Round ~ Tuesdays, 10:00am
We meet every Tuesday at 10:00am for “Sermon in the Round” led by Pastor Bryan. We jump into the scripture and ask questions about the sermon in a group setting.  We also spend some time praying for one another and other prayer needs as they arise.  One of the best ways to get to know the people in your church is in small groups.  This is just one opportunity to grow in relationship as well as in your faith. Hope to see you on Tuesday!
