TODAY IS ALL SAINTS’ SUNDAY, a day to remember and honor the lives and ministry of CPC members who have gone to be with the Lord in the past year. This morning’s worship service includes the reading of names, ringing of bells and a candle lighting ceremony.

 

THIS MORNING immediately after worship we will be “Extending the Table”, bringing worship into the world through a hands-on mission opportunity, Rise Against Hunger. CPC will pack more than 12,000 nutrient-rich meals to be sent to hungry people all over the world. Volunteers of all ages are needed to join us in Fellowship Hall.  Grab some coffee and donuts and let’s get packing!  You will enjoy participating in this multi-generational, fun-filled mission and fellowship event.
