Sunday Gatherings on ZOOM

Beginning on Sunday, February 7, Cedar Park’s Sunday Services will transition entirely to an interactive online meeting format (Zoom) until further notice. Every Sunday, a service will be hosted to share of news pertinent to our faith family and wider community, songs and prayers of worship, readings, homily and communion, and each other! Click the link, enter the password, cozy up around your computer, tablet, cell phone, or call in; have some bread and wine/juice ready; prepare yourselves and your space to partner with the journey of God’s people of Cedar Park Church.

ARCHIVE OF SUNDAY SERVICES

In light of the pandemic and a confluence of other issues (e.g., renewed urgency to respond to racial injustice, a plurality of theological emphases, housing inequity, economic uncertainty, climate crisis), Cedar Park sought to come together as a church body to discern what timely values might help us pursue God’s dream of shalom in this extraordinary season. To do this, we invited the church (members and non-members) to enter into a 4-month season of prayer, conversation, and discernment in the context of small groups.

Common Communion Liturgy

During the months of July and August, at the end of our Sunday Service livestream congregants will be invited to participate in communion with the folks they are gathered with using a common liturgy. People can also participate with others over ZOOM (see info below). Please do not feel that you need to rush out to purchase any specific communion elements. We encourage you to simply use something that you already have on hand. Whether you have bread and grape juice or water and crackers, God will bless our meal of remembrance, thanksgiving, and communion.

Contemplative Prayer  – Tuesdays 9:30 – 10:00 am

Join us as we listen to a 12-minute guided prayer meditation rooted in Scripture from Pray as You Go. Following the exercise participants will have an opportunity to share about their experience. As a church rooted in Anabaptism, we value a community hermeneutic – reading and interpreting Scripture together. This is an opportunity to listen with others for what the Word of God, Jesus, might be saying to us at this time.

Songs of Hope

This season, our musicians are posting tunes for us; for reflection, enjoyment; to sing along or to help us take a breather; in a small way, call us to hope. Check out and subscribe to our YouTube Channel to watch and listen.

Caring for others

We realize that this may be a season of isolation and fear for some. Please contact a church staff member if you would like practical help with errands (e.g. grocery pick up, meal delivery), prayer, or a compassionate listening ear. Feel free to also post needs on our Cedar Park Church Listings Facebook page. This page provides a forum for the people of Cedar Park to share their needs with one another directly.

Staff, elders, and volunteers are also reaching out to those in the CPC community via phone. Already we have made over 100 calls to assess needs and organize care! Many of you are actively reaching out to support those who are vulnerable in our church family and wider neighbourhood.
