On Saturday, May 15th, the Deacons will lead our spring work day here at the church, with projects indoors and outdoors, beginning at 9 AM and running to early afternoon. We have coffee, donuts & juice to start the day, and pizza (free) for lunch. Bring any tools (rakes, gloves, etc) you might need. There is something for EVERY level of ability to do.
Today, April 1st, is Maundy Thursday when we hold a special communion service at 7:00 PM at CPCC. You could refer to today as “Good Friday–Eve” -- the night before Jesus’ betrayal and crucifixion on Good Friday. That evening Jesus gathered His disciples to eat the Passover meal, which we now know as the Last Supper. Jesus used the bread and a cup of wine to institute Christian Communion (the Lord’s Supper) giving His disciples a command to love one another (‘maundy’ comes from command, as in “mandate”).
Plan to join us in person in the sanctuary at 7:00 PM. For Members who cannot attend, we will set up a Zoom broadcast of the service (the link emailed in advance is required). The service program can be downloaded HERE.
Let us pray that the profound love and mercy of God displayed in the suffering and death of Christ will lead us to greater praise and more fruitful service in His kingdom.

Starting, March 7th, 11:00 AM every Sunday in the Fireside Room, the Adult Class begins a timely new series “Overcoming the World — Vital Lessons from 2nd Century Christianity for Faithfulness Today" taught by Pastor Bissett, in the Fireside Room (and also on Zoom; link required).
In the second century AD, Christianity stood at a crossroads — not unlike the crossroads we face today, in the 21st century. In the 2nd century, the future of Christianity was not at all certain. Initially it possessed little social or cultural influence, and found itself fighting for its life — battling other religions, paganism, local officials and the Roman Empire. Yet those believers faithfully faced the challenges and obstacles of their day. We can learn from them and live more faithfully in our day.
