  • Implicit Bias Workshop - Sept 30, Oct 21 and Nov 18 at 7pm

    As each of us experiences life - in school, at home, in church, at work, watching T.V.  - we are surrounded by a number of biases. Some of these biases we consciously accept as our own, some we consciously reject, while many more fall into the subconscious level. Even though we are not aware of implicit biases, they constantly help to form our beliefs, values, ideas, and actions every day.

     

    Taking an intentional look at implicit bias and the ways it works in our brains and in our actions, allows us as followers of Jesus to invite the Holy Spirit to root out the biases that are corrupted by stereotype or prejudice and separate us from being the Beloved Community Jesus desires.

     

    The Southern Montgomery County United Methodist Mission ConneXion invites you to "Implicit Bias: What We Don't Think We Think," a three part workshop Sunday nights at 7 pm, September 30, October 21, and November 18, at Christ UMC. To register call Christ UMC at 215-855-1643.   

  • Armed Intruder Training - SunDay, October 14th at 6pm

    Do you know what to do if there is a violent attack when you are in a public place? Is your church prepared to handle an armed intruder? You are invited to a training to help equip you and your church for just such an experience. On Sunday, October 14, from 6-9 pm, ALICE training (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) will be conducted at Christ UMC. Participants will need to complete online individual training first. The cost of the online course is $25. This training could save your life and the lives of others. There is no cost for the event on October 14, but bring your certification with you. The more people who have been trained from your congregation the more effective you can be. Register before October 10 by calling the Christ UMC Office at 215-855-1643.


  • Furniture Fundraising Fellowship - Saturday, October 20th at 5Pm

    The expansion of our lobby, and renovation of our facilities, have made a wonderful change to our building. Now is the time to address the furnishing of these spaces.  We will be serving hearty and delicious hors d'oeuvres as you visit various areas and learn about our furniture direction and fundraising needs. You'll hear from some of our talented musicians and even have an opportunist to hear a special offering from our updated organ. Some of our members will share short testimonials as to how our renovated areas are already enhancing our ministry.  Naturally, one of the important aspects for this evening is to raise the funds to furnish these areas and we greatly appreciate your commitment and support.  Please consider a donation and bring your checkbook as we celebrate developing these areas together.  Children are welcome as child care will be available.  You can sign up by CLICKING HERE or signing up in the lobby.
