Briarwood Presbyterian Church Senior High Choir Tour Stop
On the weekend of May 28 and 29 we have the privilege of hosting Briarwood Presbyterian Church’s Senior High Choir on their first stop of the their tour of the Midwest. They will be singing at the VA Home on Saturday, May 28 at 6:30 p.m. and during our worship service on Sunday, May 29 at 10:30 a.m. We are excited about this opportunity to have them bless us and our community with their gifts.
One of the things we can do to be a blessing to them is open our homes to host the students while they are here. This would involve taking them to your home after the Saturday evening concert at the VA, providing them a place to sleep, breakfast in the morning, and a ride to church on Saturday morning. The students will be in groups of two or more of the same gender for each home. If you are willing and able to host some of these students in your home for the evening of Saturday, May 28 please let Jamie Peterson (firstname.lastname@example.org) know by Friday, May 20. Also let him know if you prefer to host males or females as well as how many.
Wednesday Summer Suppers
Each Wednesday night in the months of June and July (with the exception of June 8) we will be having a church-wide dinner here at the church at 5:30 p.m. followed by a time of prayer. This will begin on Wednesday, June 1, but our focus at the end of this dinner will be ministry reports for what will be taking place in the life of CPC this summer and the months to follow. We hope to see you there!
Women of all ages (14 and up)
“Transformed” conferences are being hosted coast to coast, and the closest one to us is in Birmingham, AL, Sept 9-10. The purpose of the regional Transformed conferences is to provide an accessible (geographically, spiritually, financially, generationally, and ethnically) opportunity to encourage and equip all the women of the PCA. Go online to register at: www.pcacdm.org/transformed2016/ Register before July 29 for the early registration discount!
After you have registered for the conference — if you would like help connecting with a roommate to share hotel costs, be a part of an organized carpool, or just want to know who else from CPC is going — click here to fill out our form and let us know. Or, contact Anna Dabbs at email@example.com to add your name to the list of folks going!
Beginning Sunday, June 5 at 9:15 a.m., all adults will be meeting in the sanctuary for Sunday School for the months of June, July, and August. Our slate for this summer is as follows:
June – “The Gospel and Work” from Tim Keller’s book Every Good Endeavor. As the title suggests, this class will focus on what difference Christ and the Gospel play in our daily occupations. Taught by Jamie Peterson
July – “Biblical Peacemaking” from Ken Sande’s book The Peacemaker. Conflict with others is something with which we all struggle, but as Christ’s church we are called to be peacemakers. This class will focus on what the Bible teaches us about this important matter. Taught by James Harper and Lee Tyner
August – “The Why, What, and How of Building a Church Building”. In order to help best prepare and equip the members of CPC for what lies ahead in our church building program, this class will focus on CPC’s strategic plan (the “why”), church architecture (the “what”), and biblical stewardship (the “how”). This class will be taught by members of CPC’s session.
If you have questions about these classes or anything else, please contact Jamie Peterson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
