The CN Commission is in need of an easy to assemble Christmas tree that could be donated to replace the old and tired fellowship hall tree. Please call Cheryl Moles if you can help.
Baby Celebrations – CPC has been blessed by two new additions to the church family recently. Hannah Rose Grossman will be honored during the fellowship time on January 11 and Claire Marie Mang will be honored on January 18. Gifts and cards may be placed on the table in fellowship hall.
LIFE – Living In Faith Everyday – This is a new Family Ministry Program for 2015. Church attendance and participation help children grow and learn in a worship community, but parents or guardians and family members are the primary religious educators. Children develop their faith every day through the examples of their parents and other adults. There will be 8 programs throughout the year to celebrate as a family the faith formation that occurs in your home. Please attend as you are able. The first is January 11 from appx. 11:45am to 1:00 pm. The conversation topic will be baptism and the celebration of the baptisms of family members. A light family friendly lunch will be served.
