Dear Community Presbyterian Church Family,

As we continue to adjust to the changing circumstances we want to keep you informed about what's going on here at CPC.

The Session leadership of this church met and made the decision to resume holding in-person worship services. We will have one service together at 10:00 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall. All must wear a mask, honor safe distancing, and abide by the other Covid-19 safety guidelines that will be implemented. You must sign up in advance to attend by calling the church the THURSDAY before each Sunday to register*: 910-295-6848. If you are a member of the church and receive the weekly emails, a sign up link will automatically be sent to you each week. There is a max capacity at this time of 85 attendees.

In the meantime, if you are aware of any needs of our congregation, or have any concerns that we, as a church, can address please let me know. 

 

Blessings,

Rod

CALL Literacy for Moms.

Literacy Changes Lives—Motheread Changes Literacy

The moms in the CALL program are using the Motheread curriculum to learn to read better, read to their children in English and teach them Spanish from a bi-lingual book. Motheread, Inc. is a nationally acclaimed, private, non-profit organization that combines literacy instruction with child development, adult empowerment or employment skills. Their goal is for adults and children to learn to use the power of literacy to discover more about themselves, their families, and their communities.

In Motheread adult classes, participants learn critical literacy skills in a group structure that supports their own sense of worth and ability. These classes are appropriate for all adults, regardless of reading ability or prior educational experience. By teaching the “why” of reading rather than just emphasizing the “how,” classes also encourage parents to be reading role models for their children. For children, Story Exploring (the curriculum) provides a structured environment for learning reading, critical-thinking, and problem-solving skills.

Last week at CALL, we read “The Ugly Duckling” who was not accepted by the other ducks at the lake. He was different and told he did not belong. This lead the group of moms to discuss incidences of bullying in school and we talked about skills their child needed so they were not afraid. Each day the moms read to their children, the children are reading more, and both are being transformed by Literacy. The moms are learning English, the children are being taught Spanish by their moms, they are becoming reading role models and both are problem-solving.
