Hello, dear readers! How is everyone this lovely… 27 degree… 48 degree… with a freezing ice storm advisory…? Pittsburgh. We’ll just say “This
lovely PITTSBURGH day.” How is everyone?
Doing well here- made a fantabulous DINOSAUR cake for my niece’s 2nd birthday that we had to peel her away from multiple times. It’s publicity led to someone giving me a real custom-cake commission for tomorrow which is a round-about way of saying I have experimental cupcakes in my office that Alex has informed me he cannot pronounce judgement on until he has several more. I’ll post cake dinosaur cake photos somewhere in this email as a reward for reading so carefully!
Senior/Junior Church Tours! This Sunday!! 10:30!!! Meet in Parish Hall!!!!
CAYG Pick up on Ellsworth NOT Neville
Alex, our resident Extrovert, loves waving at people. And he would love to wave at YOU parents when you pick up your youth from the ELLSWORTH/Kitchen Parking Lot at 8:30! Same place you drop them off at 6! Let’s give him this- it was his birthday last month.
Here is a dramatic reenactment of this coming Sunday:
Leaders: Park in Neville Lot!
We will also send a reminder text- we want the Ellsworth lot empty so Alex can get as much waving in as possible.
Remember how it was Alex’s birthday last month? Well YOUR youth probably has a birthday, and if your child started attending CAYG during COVID we do not have it.
This Sunday Support Student Scholarships with Sub Sandwiches!

Our goal is to sell 60 sandwiches for our college students attending the CCO’s Jubilee conference. You can order in advance using this link or just show up and order the day of. Payments will be accepted on the day of via cash or Venmo. (Bonus: If you ask one of our students serving sandwiches a question about themselves, we’ll throw in a free cookie with your sandwich!)”
