EACH SUNDAY ADULT EDUCATION - gather at 9 am.This year we are joining in engaging Randy Frazee's 'Believe" through the dvd curriculum (and adding our own thoughts and insights).  Great discussions, all are invited!

ONLINE BIBLE STUDY - We all lead busy lives, but we still want to make time to be in God's Word. Sign up for our online study (this year we are reading The Story together as a congregation). Many of us say we want to read the whole Bible, this is a great way to accomplish that task in a way that is readable, engaging, and achievable. Call the church office to find out more.

OASIS is our weekday devotional published by CAPC. Each devotion includes a brief scripture reading, short reflection and prayer to get your day started off in a positive and uplifting way. Tired of the craziness of life? Why not step in a moment in the Oasis to be refreshed? Sign up is easy, just email pastor@crescentonline.org and write Oasis in the subject line. 

CareNotes for a Quick Tip! Have questions? Scattered throughout our church are booklets for your use published by CareNotes. These are wonderful little booklets that address all areas of your faith life, the challenges we face, the questions we have. Peruse the supply and take one home for yourself or a friend. In a world that is so busy, they are wonderful resources that take just a few minutes of your time, but allow you to explore your faith.

PREPARE/ENRICH - Pastor Lynn is certified to administer the PREPARE/ENRICH marriage assessment tool. A wonderful way for couples who are planning on getting married to prepare for this important step in their lives, but it is also a wonderful tool for those who would like to strengthen their marriage as well. If you and your spouse would like to explore your strengths and growth areas of your relationship, strengthen communication skills, identify and manage major stressors in your life, and learn tools to make your marriage even better, contact Pastor Lynn to find out more.

YOGA - CAPC has two yoga sessions (Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9:30 am in our beautiful Guild Room) which are led by Janna Pederson, a certified yoga instructor. All skill levels are welcomed. Thursday's class is chair yoga which allows those who may not be able to get down onto the floor to still benefit from this wonderful practice.  The cost is only $10 per person, but the benefits 'stretch' way beyond that! 

Learning for Life - Did you know that Learning for Life meets here for their fall and spring semesters? Stop in and pick up one of their brochures here at church to find out more. Programming is varied, affordable and open to all.
