CPC e-news for May 2, 2014


Influence often isn’t noticed until it blooms later in the garden of someone else’s life.
Our words and actions may land close to home, or they may be carried far and wide.

On Communion Sundays members are asked to make a voluntary contribution to aid the distressed and afflicted of our community.  Please consider a gift, using the Deacons’ Fund pew envelopes.   The Deacons use the funds to provide bereavement meals, vouchers for utility bills, holiday food baskets and others ways to help the church family and the community.

The Mission Committee accepts donations of non-perishable food on the first Sunday of the month.  It will be given to Salvation Army to help with the hunger problem in our community.

Sunday School classes meet each week at 9:30 am. Preschool – room 108; Younger Elementary (K-2nd) – room 202; Older Elementary (3rd – 5th) room 103; Middle School – room 200; High School – room 201; Adults and Young Adults: Coffee and Conversation – FH classroom A; History of Christianity – FH classroom B; Christian Parenting – FH Classroom C.

The Sunday School offering is money for milk at 14th and Chestnut.  Please give generously.  Sunday School Superintendent, Sandy Mead, is offering a challenge – if we get $35 (all classes) or more a week in offering, there will be a milkshake party each month! Thanks for your generous giving.

Continue to bring the plastic caps and lids.  They will be given to Art Totality for a second bench and to Unity Presbyterian for a bench.

7th Cents Youth Group will sponsor a lunch and talent show beginning at noon on May 4 at Centenary.  This is for ALL that support our youth and want to help fund their supper mission trip to Lexington, KY.  Enjoy a taco bar lunch and the varied talents of both Central and Centenary members.  Anyone may be in the talent show, so please let Tiffany (tiffany@thcpc.org) know what you will be doing.  A freewill offering will be taken.   Youth Sunday will be held at Centenary on May 4 and at Central on May 11.

SUMMER SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHERS NEEDED!  Our summer Sunday Sunday School program will run June 1 through August 10 from 9:30 to 10:20 am.  Teachers are needed for the preschool, elementary, and youth (combined MS & HS) levels.  You may teach one or more weeks as you desire.  Don’t worry, lesson plans and materials are provided for all classes.
