Christ Renews His Parish Women's Retreat

“At first I wasn’t sure what Christ Renews was or if I wanted to go, but I am glad I did. It is an overnight for women who want to take time out of their busy schedules for some R & R…'renewal and refreshment.’

Among other things I experienced the company and community of others who were taking time to refuel and replenish the mind, body and spirit. With my faith strengthened, and the support of others, I found new meaning and purpose.”                Leslie

All women of the church are invited to attend the CRHP Retreat the weekend of March 14-15.  For more details, click here.

A Medical Review of the Crucifixion 

Friday, March 20, 2015, 7:00pm, Church

“He suffered, died, & was buried”

A Medical Review of the Crucifixion

“... of all punishments, it is the most cruel & most terrifying” Cicero , first century A.D.

“Medic 101 to County General ... We are en route with a 33-year old male who was the victim of a crucifixion.... When one considers the “worst ways to die”, typical responses include death by drowning & death by fire.  If you lived 2000 years ago however, you most certainly would disagree.  Throughout world history, one of the most feared deaths was that of crucifixion.  This presentation will guide you through the medical, psychological, and emotional aspects of crucifixion.  The death of the man called Jesus will be used to illustrate the use of a punishment that was unequaled in its cruelty and depth of suffering.  Regardless of religious beliefs, this lecture will give attendees a deeper awareness of “... he suffered, died, & was buried”
