During the Covid-19 OUtbreak

As with so many other places of worship and business, Cairn’s building is currently closed. We are still connected as a community online as we continue to meet, worship and serve the community.

 

Our worship has moved to a Zoom platform. If you would like to participate in worship as a guest please contact us at info@cairnchristian.com and we will ensure you receive the information you need. We will also be posting our recorded zoom worships on the Our Worship page.

 

Blessings to all of you. We hope you will visit us when this crisis is past.

How we connect

Children and Youth

  • Candles on the Cairn – all children and youth are invited to help carry a candle (real for older children and LED for younger) to place on our cairn at the beginning of worship

  • Children’s Moment – children are invited forward during the service for a story or lesson before they leave for Nursery and Children’s Worship

  • Nursery – during worship and education hour children 5 and under learn to play together and become friends

  • Children’s Worship – during worship children 5-10 hear stories, do crafts and play games that teach them about the faith in age appropriate ways

  • Children and Communion – we believe that children should be welcomed at the table regardless of age or baptism since Jesus welcomed children and welcomed all people to his meals

  • Youth Group – after worship every other Sunday from September to May, Chi Rho (Middle School) and CYF (High School) gather for a time to build relationships and have fun as they explore scriptural, ethical and theological topics relevant to them

  • Youth Events – fun events and outings are planned throughout the year and especially in the summer

  • Summer Camps – the opportunity for children and youth to attend summer camps, run by our denominational region at La Foret in the Black Forest

Inter-generational

  • Parent’s Night Out Coop – a group of parents that care for each other’s children monthly to allow couples time together creating deep connections and support between the couples, the children and the families

  • Dinner for Eight is a way for small groups to form and meet in homes for dinner to create deeper relationships and explore life, faith and ministry together

  • Special Events – celebrations throughout the year for all ages to have fun together such as a Halloween Party, an Ice Cream Social, Gingerbread House making, PRIDE events, joining the MLK March, an Easter Egg Hunt, our Kickoff Sunday and Thanksgiving Lunch

  • we pair our youth with adult mentors to walk the faith and life journey with them

Adults

  • Young Adults – who meet monthly for games, meals, community and discussion

  • Education Hour – after worship most Sundays from September to May with a wide variety of topics often connected to the worship theme

  • Bible Study – a midweek group that explores the text in its historical and literary context and its living applications

  • Book Group – a small group that meet roughly every six weeks to discuss a variety of books from fiction to non-fiction to poetry to religious

  • We occasionally hold retreats for deeper exploration and connection

  • New Women – a group of women that meet for sharing and discussion over breakfast or lunch once a month

  • Band - Anyone who plays an instrument is welcome at this small group that meets twice a month to explore a wide variety of music for worship

  •  Anyone who sings is welcome to join our choir which meets weekly from September to May

  • Elders are members (of all ages) who are recognized and chosen to act as the spiritual leaders of the congregation and meet monthly for mutual care, exploration of spiritual disciplines and sharing in the care of members of Cairn

  • Seasonal Groups – the groups that are formed to plan worship are more than committees as they explore deeply together a topic that they feel will lead to learning and spiritual development for the whole congregation

  • Visioning is a group that is always looking to the horizon, exploring where we are going, what we are dreaming and planning the steps to get there

  • Committees, Task Forces and Teams – we have a variety of small groups that connect around very specific tasks and ministries such as our Green Team, Marketing Team, Tech Team, Family Ministries, Property, Visitation, Pastoral Relations, and Hospitality

  • A small group gathers for meditation each Sunday morning

  • Board and Trustees – these are the leaders that care for the institutional side of our congregational life – primarily financial and legal and who build relationships through their monthly meeting
