Here at CPC we celebrate that we are on a lifelong faith journey where we are always growing and changing. God calls us to learn new things and to teach the things we know well, so we respond to this call by offering Adult Education classes and programs. Some classes run for several months while some programs are once a year. For more information about upcoming Adult Education programs at CPC, check out our Bulletins and Facebook page!
New Adult Ed:
Increase Your Impact
Sun Jan 12 & Feb 9
Leader: Rebecca Wear Robinson
Competition for changing attitudes and behaviors is intense. The average attention span is only 3 seconds. Most of us are pulled in so many directions that the hamster wheel of living is locked into a permanent spin cycle. Even when we want to do good - in our church, in our community, in the world - the obstacles are overwhelming. Even the best ideas and most pressing problems can’t keep people engaged, much less change individuals and our society for the better.
There is another way.
Using techniques pulled from marketing and social psychology, we will learn how to create positive, sustainable and cost-effective change out of the programs and organizations that you value.
Bring a notebook and pen.
Optional, but if you’d like a better understanding of what we’ll be covering, download and read Chapter 1 for free http://www.ignitechanges.com/buy-the-book

Prayers for the Chaos and Grace of Daily Life
Sun Feb 23
Spiritual writer and pastor Arianne Braithwaite Lehn provides encouragement for life's journey in these honest and poetic prayers drawn from the everyday emotions, joys, and pain of our days. Ash and Starlight features prayers for centering, confession and release, guidance and transition, waiting and struggle, comfort and strength, trust, and seasonal times of year. This compilation of prayers will help you find connection and wholeness in your own daily pilgrimage. You will be empowered to live authentically and soulfully, embracing the brokenness and beauty of your life right now, just as it is.
Arianne Braithwaite Lehn is a mother, one half of a clergy couple, writer, and ordained minister with the Presbyterian Church (USA). She was a pastoral intern at CPC in 2009 – 2010 while a student in seminary.
