Cafe Central Hosts are Needed in the New Year.  If you can help out, please sign up at the Welcome Center.  Refreshments can be simple, directions are thorough, and there is a small budget available. Everyone loves our fellowship time, and we hope to see it continue with your help!  Please contact Brad Aucker if you can help. Thanks for volunteering!


Great Opportunity  – We are looking for someone with some soundboard experience (or willing to learn) and an ear for music to cover for Steve Whittam on an occasional basis. Training will be provided. For additional information, please text or call Jan Drury at 610-283-8273.


The 2020 Chancel Flower Chart is in Fellowship Hall on the right side as you enter.  You can sign up to donate chancel flowers in memory of or in honor of a loved one.  The cost is $40 and checks should be made payable to the CPC Working Guild.  If desired, you can pair up with a friend and split the cost.  Flowers can be taken home immediately after the service, or they can be designated for a Deacon to deliver to a home-bound member.  Thank you for sharing the beauty of your flowers with us in worship.

Hearts In Hands Community Center, a ministry supported by CPC, will be losing its administrative office space at the end of February. The church that had donated the space to us is repurposing it for other local mission activities moving forward. As a not-for-profit with a very small budget, we are looking for space that would be rent-free, or at a very low cost (under $100 per month). If you know of any office space (600-750 square feet), or anyone who might know of such office space – particularly along Route 322 between Guthriesville and Honey Brook, please contact John Yurkutat (484-459-0500).
