Welcome to CPC!

Lenten Devotional Book

Our 2015 Lenten Devotional Book is available!

Preparing Our Hearts for Christ

15.mosiac cross

Our 2015 Lenten Devotional Book is now available to pick up at church 

or you may read it online by clicking on the Worship tab, then Bulletins.

Again this year, the book is written by members and friends of CPC,

and showcases our diverse congregation and their thoughts on a wide array

of scriptures.  This is an easy and meaningful way to connect with the entire 

congregation this Lent.  You will read the words written by your sisters and brothers

in Christ, and you can talk to them about it later!  

If you are new to the congregation or just checking us out,

consider this book a little window

into what we believe here, and how we think about God.

Open to all ages; everyone who comes will find a meaningful way to connect and draw themselves into a spirit of prayer through different stations. Some stations will use art, some will be reflective, some involve movement, some will be meditative…  This is a wonderful chance for you to come to CPC when you are free and to spend some time drawing closer to God during Holy Week.  You can do one station, you can do them all.  You can come by yourself, you can come with a friend, or you can come with the whole family.

Please consider taking the time to step “outside of the Sunday box” during Holy Week.

Candidating Sunday

A Message from the Pastor Nominating Committee:

Please join us Sunday, April 19

when our nominated candidate for Head Pastor will preach at both

the 9:00 and 10:30 a.m. worship services.

 

The Pastor Nominating Committee brings our candidate to the congregation 

with a sense of great anticipation and excitement.

We believe the Spirit has led us to a candidate who will both honor the

rich traditions of our church, and at the same time, help us collectively embrace

the future that God plans for our community of faith.

We hope that everyone will join us on April 19 for

“Candidating Sunday.”

RECYCLE PAPER AT CPC

Through our paper recycling program,

we raise a small amount of money for mission,

and we keep a lot of paper out of the landfill.

Drop your clean paper in our PaperRetriever Recycling Bin

which is located at the southeast corner of the church parking lot.

What goes in:

  • newspapers & inserts
  • magazines & catalogs
  • office & school papers
  • mail

None of the following:

  • no cardboard
  • no food boxes, fiberboard or chipboard
  • no textbooks or hard cover books
  • no phone books

We began our Paper Retriever recycling in April, 2010.

Since that time the amount of paper we have collected and recycled through this

program has saved trees, space in landfill,

and many kilowatt hours of energy.

Up to June, in 2012, we had recycled six tons (12,000 lbs) of paper:

that is equivalent to 102 trees,

18 cubic yards of landfill space,

24,612 kilowatts of electricity,

it reduces air pollution by 360 lbs,

and saves 42,000 gallons of water (spared from the manufacturing process).

(It’s also the same as stuffing an elephant into our recycling bin!)

Save and bring your recyclable papers to us, and help us save a tree, and make a difference.
