CPC’s Journey Together

A new family ministry designed for children, youth and adults to journey together this summer.

 

Here’s the Journey Together path:

  • Each of the 6-weekend excursion will begin with a drive through CPC on Friday between 6:00 - 6:30pm to pick up your supplies.

 

  • Next, Peter and Lisa will layout the terrain in an emailed interactive video to get the adventure started.

 

  • Wanderers (I.E. participants, that's you!) will then have the weekend to take part in the 1 to 1-1/2 hours of fun, themed activities provided.

 

  • Finally, each excursion will end with a Zoom call at 4:00pm on Sunday afternoon to allow all to share in our Journey Together!

 

You're invited to Journey Together with CPC this summer!
