The current installment of the COEC began meeting in 2007.

We are currently on a "break," for no particular reason, and many little reasons - mostly pertaining to life circumstances. If anyone is interested in calling a meeting, feel free to post on the blog, join the google group (see link below) and send an email, or contact either Nancy (nancykj10@yahoo.com) or Jesse (schroeder.jesse@gmail.com) for more information.

To receive cohort emails, join our Google group.




Zack and Eve were not able to make it back into town from visiting Cleveland. Therefore, we have changed the location to Chris and Julia's house. 216 E. 9th Ave. Parking is on the street. Call 557-5768 for questions.


I miss everyone!
It's been two Sundays of not seeing our friends in the cohort, and Kellye and I miss seeing you guys! As I think about the cohort, my heart really longs to just connect with everyone this week in some meaningful way. So here is an idea....

Let's come up with some questions. They can be simple, vague, funny, serious, spiritual or otherwise. For example: "What do you love most about God?" "What is one experience you have had in the past few months that you will try to remember forever?" "What are you most afraid of right now?" Etc...

I have an idea of how to arrange these questions in a format that we will all take time to reflect and answer silently. Perhaps in a "stations" like setup, or maybe by passing the questions around the room in a circle. I'll work on it....

But basically, we'll write down our answers, and we'll all read everyone else's answers, and then we'll just connect. We'll share. We'll ask follow up questions. We'll pray for each other. We'll sing some songs together. We'll share communion. I think it'd be nice.

So - This Sunday (Aug. 15) - Zack/Eve/Nick's house (1270 Courtland Ave.) - 6:30pm - Eat dinner beforehand, but we'll have Guatemalan coffee and a dessert to share -

If you think of a question you'd like to ask, post it in the comments section. I'll prepare the format. Let's come together Sunday evening planning to connect, share, and spend some quality spiritual time together.

Thanks Jesse. This is a wonderful idea. I'll be there on Sunday. Looking forward to it.

Zack Schroeder said...

just some suggestions you don't have to use these

"What is your deepest longing?"

"Who is someone you look up to, and in what way do you want to be like them?"

"What's your favorite game? Why?" or "What's the most fun you've ever had?"

Eve said...

Looking forward to it, can we have music too?

three words that describe God.
what do you pray for most?

Jesse said...

I think music would be awesome. I am willing to play guitar and sing a bit, but does anyone else want to play? It could be anything that you'd like to share with the group, even a song you'd want to play on a CD.

Jesse said...

Also, thanks for the additional questions Zack and Eve.

Anyone else - what questions could we ask each other? What questions are on your heart and mind?

Jane Johnson said...

Great idea Jesse!

Here's a question: When was the last time that you were sure, and I mean sure, that God exists?

Angela Harms said...

Not sure if we'll make it or not. Gonna try. Thanks, Jesse.
