Pastor’s Message:

(The latest bulletin board)

It is good to be back! Our last full issue of the Herald was “published” in September. Quite a lot has happened since then and we are proud to be back. You will note, I am sure, some changes to the look and layout of the “new” Herald. Our new Communications Coordinator, Ariel Wickham, has done a fantastic job and I hope you are as pleased with the updated version of our monthly newsletter as I am. We are so blessed to have her as a member of our staff. In these pages you will find loads of information about what is happening at CMPC in March and beyond. Read carefully. Have your calendar in hand. And make your plans to be with us and to be involved as often as possible. This is a special place in the midst of some very exciting times. We hope to see you often—here and everywhere else we are doing good work. God bless! Pastor Hoffman

Would you like to receive a print copy of the newsletter instead of an electronic copy? Please contact Ariel Wickham (office@cmpcusa.org, 410-997-8011) with your preference and contact information. Christ Memorial Presbyterian Church March 2013 Herald

New Member Spotlight

CMPC is proud to welcome Theresa Akuoko into our congregation. Theresa was recieved into the membership of our church community on Sunday, February 17th during worship. Theresa relocated to the US from Ghana in April 2012 after her family won the US Immigrant Visa lottery. She first lived in Laurel and moved to Columbia in October 2012. Prior to relocating to the US, she worked with the Ghana Health Service as a Principal Health Planning Officer for over 10 years. She holds a Master’s Degree in Social Development and Health from the Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh, Scotland in the United Kingdom and a Post-Graduate Certificate in Health Management Planning and Policy from the University of Leeds, which is also in the United Kingdom. She holds lots of other certificates as well. Currently, Theresa works part-time and is still looking for job opportunities. Theresa is from Ghana, was born into a Presbyterian family, and is the last of four girls. She is married and has a 6 year old son, Kofi who is with her here. Her husband will join the family later. She loves reading and traveling. Theresa is very happy to be part of CMPC and is looking forward to a wonderful fellowship with everyone. Be sure to welcome Theresa and Kofi the next time you see them.

CMPC’s New Steinway Grand Piano

Theresa Akuoko 7164 Natures Road Columbia, MD 21046 240-408-6365 akuokot@gmail.com

Friends, over 40 years ago our beloved brother and sister Frank and Viola Rushing graciously donated the Steinway Model L piano that has led thousands in worship here at CMPC. We are forever indebted to their generosity. Recently, however, the condition of the piano has deteriorated to the point where it would require repairs that would exceed the monetary value of the piano and with no guarantee for how much longer the instrument would function properly. Faced with this reality and after months of research, our music personnel (Lorri Yawney and Joy Exner), along with the guidance and support of the Worship and Music Committee, brought a proposal to the Session to replace the piano with a used, refurbished Steinway Model B piano (slightly larger than the model L we have and more appropriate for the size of our sanctuary). After much conversation, thought, and careful consideration, the Session voted unanimously to purchase the “new” piano at the more-than-fair cost of $50,000 (which includes trading in our current piano). The new piano arrived on Tuesday, February 26th (pictured left) and will lead us in worship for the first time on Sunday, March 3rd. The leadership of the church is excited about this new addition and Christ Memorial Presbyterian Church March 2013 Herald

CMPC’s New Piano (cont.)

believes this is an important move that will greatly enhance our worship services for decades to come. Understanding that many of our members are deeply invested in the music ministry of the church we would like to encourage anyone who feels compelled to make a donation toward offsetting the cost of the new piano. If you so desire, you may write a check to CMPC with “new piano” in the memo line and send it or bring it to the church. Our music staff is already hard at work planning a special worship service to commission the new piano and we will be sure to get word out about that event as soon as plans are finalized. If you should have any questions about this process and/or decision please feel free to contact Pastor Hoffman (Pastor.hoffman@cmpcusa.org or 410-997-8011).

CMPC LOGOS Much appreciation goes out to our FISH (Fellowship in Senior High) youth of LOGOS who developed and led the worship service for Youth Sunday February 24th (pictured below). The theme was “Discipleship” and it was carried through Sunday’s music, prayers, liturgy, drama, and message. The youth were supported by FISH Directors Elyn and Ryan Thomas; Don Wade, who assisted with the video production; and Rachel Wade, who arranged the piece “Everlasting God” for all of our talented musicians. Thanks also to Jennifer Seinfeld who served as worship accompanist. Coming up next month will be our annual LOGOS musical—a look back at 25 years of musicals at Christ Memorial! You won’t want to miss this special morning (Sunday, March 17th) as the children tell the story of the importance of these messages over the years. Would you like to visit on a Wednesday night? There’s always room for one more at the table! Just give us a call or email ahead of time so we’re sure to set a place for you. We welcome children and youth who would like to try it out and adults of all ages who would like to find a place to volunteer. Just contact LOGOS Director Liz Perraud (htebazile3@verizon.net).

Christ Memorial Christian Preschool We began February by talking about groundhogs and one special groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil. We learned about shadows - the children were excited the find out that Phil did not see his shadow. Hopefully, spring will be here soon. As Valentine ’s Day approached we learned the many ways that God shows us his love. We learned that Jesus loves us unconditionally and we sang that ageless children’s song “Jesus Loves Me”. We made and sent valentines to our parents and exchanged valentines with each other. We used our Church mural to introduce the Bible Story from Mark 10: 13-16: “The people brought children to Jesus, hoping he might touch Point your children in the them. The disciples shooed them off. But Jesus was irate and let them know it: ‘Don’t right direction ~ when push these children away. Don’t ever get between them and me. These children are they’re old they won’t be at the very center of life in the kingdom. Mark this: Unless you accept God’s kingdom lost. -Proverbs 22: 6 in the simplicity of a child, you’ll never get in.’ Then, gathering the children up in his arms, he laid his hands of blessing on them.” Our other Bible stories covered Jesus as a child, how Jesus’ neighborhood was different from ours, and the ways Jesus was a helper during his time on earth. Christ Memorial Preschool has recently been certified through Healthy Howard as a Healthy Childcare site. During the school year, the staff and I have been working with our parents and their children to promote less screen time, more active play, and healthy snacks. Registration for the 2013/14 school year is ongoing. Please let your family and friends know about us. Our classes and tuition rates are as follows:

2-day class ~ ($130) this class is on Tuesday & Thursday (9 a.m. to noon) and is for children who turn 3 before September 30th. 3-day class ~ ($190) this Monday, Wednesday, Friday class (9 a.m. to noon) and is for children who turn 4 before September 30th. 5-day class ~ ($300) this class meets every day (9 a.m. to noon), and is for children who will attend Kindergarten the following school year.

All children must be potty-trained before school begins. Financial assistance is available. To visit our classes or for more information, visit www.cmpcusa.org/preschool or contact Missy Sullivan (410-997-8011 or preschool@cmpcusa.org)

CMPC Missions Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake CMPC is currently partnering with HFH on three projects: I. ReStore The ReStore facility is a home improvement store which accepts donations of building supplies, tools, and household products, including furniture. The donated products are resold to the general public and proceeds are used for operating expenses and purchasing of land and supplies for new homes. For more information, visit http://www.chesapeakeReStore.org/. CMPC is in need of volunteers to work at the new HFH ReStore location in Columbia. Volunteers will be assembling shelving and sorting and stocking donations from 8:30 a.m. through 4:00 p.m. We are currently filling Saturday, April 6th, Saturday April 13th, and Saturday April 20th. Names of volunteers need to be submitted two weeks in advance. II. Alumnium Can Recycling CMPC also collects aluminum cans and other aluminum products, brings them to Maryland Recycling, and gives the proceeds to HFH. Aluminum products can be cans or foil products, such as throw-away pans, covers, crutches, etc. Donations can be dropped off in the special shed located at the southern edge of the CMPC parking lot. III. United Churches Home Build Last year the UC team sponsored construction of the PEN LUCY neighborhood in Baltimore. With our financial and volunteer support, two homes were completed and sold to new home owners. More information about new builds will be shared as it is available.

This service has been planned to be child-friendly, but is intended for all. Remember that Easter is not possible without Good Friday. 7:00 p.m.: Our evening Good Friday worship will be in the style of Tenebrae—a service of light and dark. A solemn, contemplative time marked by readings from scripture and silence, this will be an opportunity for worshippers to reflect on the death of our Savior as well as our own mortality. Both services will be held in the sanctuary.

Easter Sunrise Service Bright and early on Easter Sunday morning we will gather to worship the Risen Son as the sun rises. Weather permitting we will worship outdoors in the beauty of God’s creation beginning at 6:45 a.m. All are welcome to join in this simple and powerful worship experience. The service will be moved indoors in the event of inclement weather. Come dressed for the weather. We hope to see you there!

Easter 10:30 a.m. worship Come one, come all to worship on Easter Sunday morning when we will pull out all the stops to bring our worship to the Risen Lord. The Spirit will be moving as we gather to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Assisted by symphony brass and timpani, our music will soar! You will not want to miss this opportunity to worship and return thanks! Come, add your voice to the millions gathered around the world to celebrate the blessed day as we unite our voices in song: Christ the Lord is risen today! Alleluia!

Window On The Word “Name That Parable” By Leta Renich Read Luke 15: 11-24 For years this parable has been known as the Prodigal Son. However, several different translations title this “The Lost Son”. This title is obviously descriptive, but does that cover all that’s in this story? Here are some other possible titles. The drop-out son? - That too The Jealous Brother? – Also. The Angry Brother? – Yes, another side of it. The Angry Son? – Yes, I find that there, also, but does that cover the whole story? The parable of the waiting father? – Obviously. Let’s examine it more closely.

Part II. Now let’s turn our focus to the father in the story. He willingly sold some of his lands (or other property) to obtain the younger son’s third of the inheritance and gave each their inheritance. (In that day, the eldest son received double the portion of the other sons.)

Then the father started watching for his son’s return. In that day, the Mosaic Law was that a disobedient son was Part I. I see three parts to this story. We are familiar to be brought to the elders and they would stone him to with the first part, known as “The Prodigal Son”. The death – a very severe punishment. If the son was seen in youngest son asks for his inheritance ”Now” (the the town, the elders might decide to punish him for his younger son stamping his foot and demanding). (As a treatment of his father, so the father watched from afar mother, I hear my 2-year-old son stomping his foot and to welcome him. When he saw him a long ways off, he shouting.) When he received it, he packed up and left picked up his robe and ran to him. (It was undignified for to Las Vegas. (No, The Bible doesn’t say that – that’s just an older man to lift up his robes and run.) putting it into a modern setting! At that time it was Antioch or Rome.) While he had money, he had lots of As the son confessed his sins, the father hugged and friends. When he had spent all his money, he had no kissed him. Note that the father interrupted the son’s more friends. (Beware of “buying friends”). He couldn’t prepared speech - as soon as the son confessed, the father find a job, so he attached himself to a rich man, taking called for his servants to bring his ring and finest robe, care of the pigs. When he was hungry, he even and sandals. The ring is the sign of authority (Genesis resorted to eating some of the slop he was feeding 41:42, Esther 3:10, 8:2) of the father, the finest robe them. When he came to his senses, he said, “at home indicates an honored person (Genesis 41:42), while even the hired help eat better than this.” Then he sandals were worn only by a free man – slaves did not started planning on confessing his sins and have sandals. The fatted calf was reserved for special apologizing to his father and asking to be hired as a occasions. The father’s love for this son was so great he servant. So he returned home. laid aside conventions to care for him. Christ Memorial Presbyterian Church March 2013 Herald

Window On The Word (cont.) “Name That Parable” By Leta Renich Part III. This is an inspiring picture of complete forgiveness and restoration of relationship, but we have not examined the story of the son who remained at home. He was angry about the honoring of his younger brother who treated their father so scornfully and refused to participate even when his father came out to persuade him. The elder son had never done anything wrong and considered himself above the poor, sinful vagabond who had returned home. He told his Dad, “All this time I stayed home and served you. I always obeyed you, yet you never gave me so much as a kid to share with my friends.” This statement indicates that the older brother was expecting a reward for meritorious behavior. The father then reminds his older son their relationship has not changed: “All that I have is yours.” As with the younger son (v. 20), the father takes the initiative in restoring the relationship, reminding him that the son who was lost is found.

Examination. Jesus’ parables are generally full of multiple meanings. This is no exception. In the two stories preceding this parable, the seeker actively looked for the coin and the sheep, which could not return by themselves. In this story, the father watched and waited. He was dealing with a human being with a will of his own, but he was ready to greet his son if he returned. In the same way, God’s love is constant and patient and welcoming. He will search for us and give us opportunities to respond, but he will not force us to come to him. Like the father in this story, God waits patiently for us to come to our senses. The parable as a whole points to the sovereign love of God who actively seeks out unworthy sinners—those who do not seek Him (19:10). It is a glorious picture of the Heavenly Father and his angels welcoming home returning souls. When we grow discouraged over our sinfulness this is a good chapter to read.
