CLASS: "Don't Give The Enemy A Seat At Your Table"
ON ZOOM ONLY (NO IN-PERSON GATHERING)
TEACHER: L.K. Jordan
LOCATION: Room 105 (and on Zoom)
DESCRIPTION: In this study, Louie Giglio relates how he had allowed the devil a place in his mind. We learn we have the power, through Christ, to take control of our thoughts and emotions.

CLASS: "The Chosen (Season 2)"
DESCRIPTION: This fall we will continue with "The Chosen" TV series as it continues presenting the life of Jesus. Resistance increases and Jesus’ disciples’ struggle to learn how to be a team and follow.
Please be sure to preview each episode prior to class. We will not be showing the films on Wednesday nights. You can download the free app, “The Chosen” or view it on your computer at https://watch.angelstudios.com/the chosen/watch .
Discussion questions will be provided weekly. There is supplemental material - interviews with religious and historical scholars and cast members – that you can explore online and share your gleanings. This video series and COW class is for everyone – men, women, and families.
CLASS: Women's Ministry
TEACHERS: Pat Clarke and Kate Strouse
DESCRIPTION: Women's Bible study led by Pat Clarke and Kate Strouse. The group is currently studying a book called "Preaching the Gospel to Yourself"; however, it is not necessary to have it in order to attend the class. Each day is a different way to apply the gospel to whatever situation you're in - work, social media, marital status, etc.
EVENT (October 27): Urban Promise Virtual Banquet
HOSTS: Bev Henry & Laura Woodin
LOCATION: Upstairs Auditorium
DESCRIPTION: Join us for an evening with Urban Promise! In the upstairs Auditorium we will get to participate and witness the Urban Promise's annual Virtual Banquet! We'll also get to hear from some folks from the CLC who have partnered with Urban Promise! We hope you will join us for this one time event!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Is it required that we attend both the meal and a class/program at COW?
A: Nope! It is not required that you be at both the meal and the class/program. We simply see them as two different (and awesome) ways that you can Connect On Wednesday which is why we encourage anyone to consider both, however we won’t require attendance at either. So come enjoy a good meal with good community, and/or swing by to enjoy some of our evening offerings!
Q: Will there be something for everyone in my family?
A: Yes! Our hope is to create spaces for anyone and everyone to connect with each other and Jesus, so we do our best to create space for congregants of all ages! We have stuff for kids, students, and adults. You can learn more about our current offerings at COW right HERE.
Q: Do you have any offerings for Nursery & Pre-School aged children?
A: We are hoping and planning on having spaces for and leaders to serve our youngest kiddos! We do require that parents sign-up in advance for their children to be able to attend these programs. To do so, visit our CLC Kids page right HERE.
Q: Does the meal cost money?
A: Great question! The answer is yes, we do charge $5 per meal in order to cover the cost of the food itself. Our goal isn’t to make money from COW meals. In fact, our Big Yellow Mug team works diligently to provide all of our meals at-cost (they also do a pretty stellar job at making it nutritious and delicious too)!
Q: I have a pretty big family. Is there a family spending cap on meals?
A: Also a great question! The answer is yes! In an effort to make Wednesday's as accessible as possible, there is a $25 cap for families so you can feed the whole crew without having to break the bank each week! If you have questions or need to inquire about any additional financial assistance, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: Do you have virtual options for COW?
A: We do! We will do our best to always have one class that can be accessed virtually for those congregants who want to join in from home. You can see our different offerings for cow right here. We do not, however, have any virtual offerings for CLC Kids or CLC Students.
Q: Can I bring friends and family to COW?
A: Of course! Everyone is welcomed to Connect On Wednesday. :) The more the merrier!
Q: Why is it called C.O.W.?
A: What originally was known as “Connect On Wednesday” quickly became abbreviated to C.O.W. People liked it and it was convenient, so it stuck!
