CPMM will be hosting worship on Wednesday evenings from 7-8 pm through July 2021. We will highlight an individual at the beginning of the hour and ask them to talk about how they actually worship. We want to know what people concretely do, step by step. After hearing from them, we'll try and do it how they do it. Then we'll end with reflections on how that went. If you would like to attend, please email the CPMM office at [email protected]
