CPC e-news for April 22, 2016
CPC is alive and well! We may not have a pastor, but we are not without leadership and care. The Session, Deacons, Commissions and staff are continuing the work of the church as they always have. Rev. Scott Paul-Bonham and Rev. David Rosen are providing worship leadership and Rev. Linda Peters is doing pastoral care for the congregation. The Transitional Pastor Search Committee is at work. If you have any needs, please call the church office. In an emergency at night or on weekends, call Cheryl Moles (812-235-3646).
CPR training will be held at Central on Saturday, April 30 from 9:00 am to noon by the CPR Guru. Anyone that would like to learn or refresh their knowledge of this life saving skill is welcome. Certification can be received for a fee of $25. Observation to learn the techniques without certification can be done for free. Please notify Cheryl Moles that you will be attending – [email protected] so that we have the correct number of materials.
