"He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to
do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?" Micah 6:8
"And the king will answer them, 'Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of
these who are members of my family, you did it to me.'" Matthew 25:40
"And Jesus came and said to them, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given
to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the
Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that
I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.'"
God invites us into the Divine work of blessing. Scripture teaches two primary ways
that we bless: caring for people in need and pointing people to the saving grace of Jesus
Christ. At Cottonwood we seek to run alongside people for the purpose of bringing
blessing into their lives and into our world. We invite you to join us as we serve the
world around us in response to the grace of God we have known.
SALT LAKE COUNTY MEALS ON WHEELS NEEDS HELP
We need several people to help deliver lunches in the CPC area. It takes less than one hour every third week. No special equipment is needed. If you could possibly help, please call DeeDee Simer at 801 262-2224 for details.
Family Promise – Salt Lake is an
interfaith alliance whose mission is to
help homeless families achieve lasting self-sufficiency by providing safe and
hospitable shelter with the help of local congregations, and offering intensive case
management support both during and following an episode of homelessness.
Cottonwood Presbyterian Church (CPC) has partnered with Our Saviour's Lutheran
Church (OSLC) in Millcreek to assist them in hosting families three times at their
church in 2013.
The next week on their schedule is October 27 – November 3. We have funds available
to reimburse those who provide the evening meals, if needed.
The CPC members who visited in April are all eager to help when it is our turn in July
or October. Anyone else who may be interested in helping may contact Roy or Pat
Kristensen at 801-571-6530.
