Announcements for the week of March 3, 2019

CHANCEL FLOWERS THIS MORNING are given to the glory of God and in loving memory of Kay Johnson by Ralph Johnson.


PLEASE REMAIN SEATED following the Benediction to participate in the Annual Meeting of the Congregation and Corporation of CPC.  Parents who have children in Godly Play should take a moment to sign them out of room 106 and walk them down to the Youth Room, where they will be provided with some activities during the meeting.  Children in both nurseries can remain there to be picked up at the end of the meeting.



THIS MORNING’S LOOSE OFFERING assists our Deacons with their outreach to the community.  The Deacon Liaison Committee continues to work with families in need, helping with utility bills, heating oil, rental assistance and support toward food. Thank you for your generosity.
