Summer Time!

May 21, 2018

This weekend is Memorial Day weekend, a time that we set aside to remember those who have died while serving in the military. It also marks the beginning of summer, or at least summer vacation season. Kids are getting out of school for the summer, the weather (at least in Northern KY) has finally gotten warm, and people often slow down and take time off from various activities.

At COF we have some changes and new things coming up. First of all, beginning Sunday June 3 our worship will begin at 10:30 instead of 11:00. The session decided to do this to allow families more Sunday afternoon time together.

Also in June we will be holding auditions for Smoke on the Mountian, a musical comedy set in a small church in the North Carolina mountains. Auditions will be June 3 from 3-5 pm and June 4 from 7-9 pm, and the show will be performed in August.

Stretching and meditation will be the topic of a class held in our labyrinth on June 6 at 6 pm. Led by Phoenix Wilson and myself, we’ll enjoy learning how to meditate as well as how to walk the labyrinth. We are hoping to build this into a series!

As it says in Ecclesiastes, for every thing there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven. If you’ve been thinking about checking us out at COF, why not this summer?

Peace,

Rev. Sharon

Audition Time!

May 3, 2018

God is doing a new thing at Community of Faith: Jeff and I are working to create a community theater company there that we are calling “The RefplayersReformation Players.” Our mission is to bring creative people together to produce quality theater productions as an offering to the Northern KY community. We are lucky in that our congregation is a theater-loving bunch and are supportive of our efforts, and with their blessing we begin this effort!

Our first show will be “Smoke on the Mountain,” a musical comedy set  in a small country church. The show revolves around the pastor, who is trying to bring his congregation into the modern age. To do this he invites a traveling gospel music group, the Sanders Family, to put on a show at the church– to the delight and dismay of the congregation. Between their renditions of classic bluegrass gospel songs each family member gives a testimony of God working in their lives.

Auditions are open to the public and will be held on Sunday, June 3 from 3-5 pm and Monday,Auditions June 4 from 7-9 pm. Casting needs include 4 men and 3 women, including two teen roles; actors must be able to sing. The auditions will consist of a short reading from the script and a demonstration of singing ability. We will also be auditioning musicians to accompany the Sanders Family. Auditions will be held at Community of Faith Presbyterian Church, 1400 Highland Pike, Covington, KY 41011. For more information see our Facebook page or email us at revscarter1400@gmail.com.

The show will be held on August 24, 25, 31 and Sept. 1 at 7 pm, and there will be a matinee on Sunday, August 26 at 3 pm. Tickets are $10; children under 6 are free. Tickets will go on sale soon, so mark your calendar!
