Tamale Making Class - December 9 - 11 am

Everyone is Invited to Learn How to Make Tamales

Rosario Gallegos will teach us how to make tamales.

The tamales will be part of the meal following the Posada.

If you would like, bring $20 and take 10 tamales home.  



Posada - December 16 - 5 pm


A Posada is a Mexican reenactment of Mary's and Joseph's quest to find shelter in which to give birth to the baby Jesus.  Participants move from door to door, while members of the group put on a series of short plays at each stop.  Be prepared to walk along with Mary and Joseph on their journey to Bethlehem and in their search for lodging.  You will see the shepherds as they tend their flocks and share their fascination as the angels sing of the newborn Christ.  See Bartolo as he is led astray by the crafty devil.  He will need your help to find his way back to the other shepherds.  We will end by singing in joy at the manger celebrating the birth of Christ with Mary, Joseph, the shepherds, angels and the bright shining star.  Bring your appetite as no Posada is complete without tamales and chocolate for all.  To close our celebration there will be a piñata for the children.

Quick Community Service:  Bright & Early Tuesday Mornings! 


The Day Laborer Outreach (aka "Burrito Ministry") is looking for additional volunteers to help deliver burritos to businesses that employ day laborers in construction, traffic work, and other tough jobs. Many of those served are struggling not only with food instability but also with health issues, lack of housing, and other issues. Giving them a hot breakfast to start their day is a simple and cheerful blessing on all sides. The summer months are a lovely time to get involved! 

 

Where/When: Meet in the church parking lot, every Tuesday, 5:25 am

Café Justo - Caffeine with a Conscience

CENTRALongmont Church will place orders for coffee from Café Justo, at a price of $10/lb or $40/5lbs. Place your order at the Information Desk in the Fellowship Hall after Sunday service, or online via this form


The Benefits of Buying Café Justo

  • The coffee is organically grown, is delicious, and a good value
  • ALL revenues go to the grower’s Cooperative in Chiapas
  • It allows the coffee farmers to remain in their homeland.
  • The Café Justo drinker helps support development of new spin-off jobs and economic development south of the border.  
  • By allowing co-op members to stay home and earn a "just wage," Café Justo addresses the double tragedies of families split apart by migration to the United States and of migrants dying in the desert trying to get here.
