2019 Harvest Hymn Sing

Each year, CEFC invites the community to come and sing hymns with us in the Fall season, (and some years again in the Spring).

Chewelah Harvest Hymn SingAlthough we, and many of the churches in town, sing lots of hymns during regular weekly services, sometimes we don’t get to sing our favorite ones very often. This event provides an opportunity for folks to request – and sing – their favorite hymns.

Because we always end up singing until nobody can sing anymore, we like to have special music interspersed through the evening to let people’s voices rest for a few minutes. This adds to the enjoyment of the fellowship time together with our brothers and sisters in Christ.

After the singing is finished, we gather in the fellowship hall and enjoy apple cider and treats.

Our new, larger sanctuary can seat up to 150, so there is plenty of room to bring family members and friends from around the community. And if you have a Sunday evening service at your church, you can always come for the beginning, then slip out when you need to!


Another new women’s study is beginning at CEFC. According to Joan Thompson, “We’re calling it the ‘Hebrews 12 Group’ because we’re focusing on ‘laying aside every weight and the sin which so easily ensnares us’ in order to run our unique race of life.”

The study begins Tuesday, September 24, 7:00pm at Chewelah Evangelical Church and will go for about 10 weeks. You DON’T have to attend church in order to participate! ❤️

Along with the study (using “Be Transformed” by Scope Ministries), women will be learning about how the brain works, hormones, habits and practical ways to make real change. And yes, we’re your support group! For those interested in applying concepts to health and losing weight, we’ll be meeting at 6:30pm, prior to the study.

If you have questions, call or message Joan Thompson or attend the information meeting this Sunday following the church service (about noon) at Chewelah Evangelical Free church. Joan says, “I believe every person has a unique purpose, a calling in life. I’m excited to share how God has been freeing me up and I KNOW He is eager to free up anyone who is willing to reach out for truth and grace. 🌟”


The ladies’ Bible study group, which will meet on Thursday mornings from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., will begin a new study on September 19th at the church. The group will be studying “Contagious Joy,” a Women of Faith video study series.

Please bring your favorite breakfast bread and fruit to share. Study books are $10.25 each and Katie Freeman will need your money by the 16th for your study book. If you have questions or need further information, please contact Kathy White or Katie Freeman.
