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.

Campout @ Hamilton's


This Saturday, Aug 24th, we are having a grill-out/campout @ the Hamilton's.   We are planning on fixing a variety of meats by open fire.  We will also provide some drinks -- tea, lemonade, water, coffee, beer and wine -- are staples in our house -- if you prefer soda and/or liquor you'll need to bring it.  

Anyone is welcome to come.  Bring along your lawn chairs, to commune around the campfire, and tents if you plan to stay the night.  We will eat around 6pm.  You can show up anytime Saturday afternoon.  Also we have a variety of herbs and spices so if you bring an empty container you could go home with some fresh basil, parsley, chives, oregano, or mint.

If your not real comfortable sleeping out in the elements there are a couple extra beds and lots of floor space to accommodate.  A sleeping bag, blanket, and pillow would be handy items to bring along with you, in that case.

Bring along something to share -- a story for the campfire, a food item, or a beverage -- any or all are necessities for a night under the stars.  If you want to post what you are bringing it would be helpful for the others to know what to expect.

If you need an address, directions, or have questions, you can text or call me on my cel 937 303-3362.

Hope to see you.

Orban's House Blessing!!

Hi everyone -

We have an exciting gathering planned for this Sunday evening (8/18) at 6pm - a house blessing for Chris and Julia Orban! As many of you know, it has taken several months for the house to be completed, for all the paperwork to go through the proper hands, and for the Orbans to be able to move it. But now, they have a great new house in the heart of Weinland Park, and we want to take the time to bless the space and the family that will together make the house a home.

Please join us at 6pm, at 1414 Hamlet St, and we will join together to bless the Orban home.

Plan to eat dinner before or after the gathering, but if you are able, also plan to bring a small snack, dessert or drink to share. We will have a "light" potluck (chips, drinks, cookies, or whatever we bring) after the house blessing.

Hope to see everyone there! If you have questions or need more info, feel free to email Jesse - schroeder.jesse@gmail.com


This Sunday: Discussion

Hi everyone - this Sunday, Aug 11, from 4-6pm we will have an open discussion. We will meet at the Global Gallery at 3535 N High St. The topics for discussion may, and most likely will, wander on to various matters of spirituality and life, including church, prayer, etc. We will hopefully have some new folks join us, so we may spend most of our time just sharing backgrounds and experiences of church and religion. 

As always, everyone is welcome! If you need more info, email Jesse : schroeder.jesse - at- gmail.com
