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.

Dying in the Dessert of no gatherings.

This summer has been a real dry spell for having our regular gatherings.  I will sure be glad when we get back to a regular schedule. 

I just wanted to take a moment to thank those who have been willing to pick me up for the meetings.  It's hard not having a car, but that is simply not in the budget right now.  Hopefully in the future.

As most of you know, I really love coffee.  If you want to give me a shout to meet at a coffee shop near High St., I'd really be glad to meet you there.  I am unashamedly putting this out here in hopes of having opportunities to see you all.  If I have your cell numbers I'll test my new land line to you before I turn of the cell.  I never talk to anyone out of the house anyway, so it see kind of useless to have it. 

My great great grandmother was Jewish, so it's in my genes to try to do guilt trips.  I'm also Catholic but that's not genetic, so I don't know how well that will work.  Mostly, I just want to see you guys.

Peace and All Good,
Br. Curt

"Goodbye Columbus"

In an attempt to accentuate the positive we are going to party because Nick and Becky are leaving! 

(hmmm, that doesn't quite come across as intended does it?)

Life happens:  Sad but true one of the founders of the cohort is going to vamoose.  We wish it wasn't true on one hand, but fully understand and are excited for them on the other...ah, paradox, why are we surprised when you pop up?!

Please join us for a

"Send off Shin-Dig" 

Sat. July 27 at 6pm 

179 Bridgeport Way, Delaware, OH 43015

to  wish Nick and Becky well as they venture forth into their unfolding  life voyage together.  We will of course center this event around a casual meal.  To that end please RSVP in the comments how many will attend and what you may bring to accompany PIZZA (which we will order locally) and STROMBOLI (which will be made in house).

Everyone is invited to join us.  If you've never attended and are curious about the COEC this will be an excellent opportunity to come and experience a taste of the community we endeavor to be and share. 


Celebration of the Faithful : 7/7/13

Hello everyone -

This Sunday, July 7th, we will have a Celebration of the Faithful from 5-7pm at the Schroeder's house in Grove City. This will be a time for everyone to gather, read Scripture, enjoy music, share reflections, pray, and break bread (both communion, and eating dinner!)

As always, everyone is welcome to join - old friends and newcomers. We will have a potluck dinner, with the main dish being "barbeque muffins" which is one of Kellye's classics. Side dishes, fruit and veggies, desserts, and adult beverages would all compliment well.

As a theme verse, I considered the story of Jesus' Ascension into heaven. I've been thinking a lot lately about losing people before I'm ready, and that story came to mind. We'll see where it takes us.

Please post if you will be joining us, and what you will be bringing. Thanks friends - hope to see you Sunday!
