CPC Kids

Sunday School is currently on summer hiatus!

But...

Fall Registration is Here!

September 12

 

Between school and additional activity registrations, we know you have a lot of paperwork to fill out. We want you to have these forms so you can get them out of your way and your kids registered for CPC activities! Our plan is to begin Sunday School on September 12th and have a big celebration on the 19th. Either one of those can be your family's start date but we want class rosters ready and our teachers ready to welcome your students. Email, mail or drop your forms by and put one big checkmark on your Fall to-do list!

Volunteers Needed!

Sunday School Teachers

CE-C Committee Members

 

We are making plans with pencils these days but are very hopeful for opportunities to gather together for kids to learn, grow and explore their faith. The Christian Education -Children's committee (CE-C) has two invitations for you to consider. First, are you able to provide 1-2 Sundays a month to teach Sunday School? We are looking for Preschool/Kindergarten and 1st-2nd grade volunteers to lead our classes. Second, are you able to attend 1 meeting a month? The CE-C committee are the brains of CPC Kids and are in need of your voice to understand what would work best for our students. 

 

Interested in learning more? Contact Pastor Susan or Kathy Florence for more information!
