NURSERY PARENTS: There is a new sign-in/sign-out form in the nursery. Please use it each week when dropping off and picking up your child(ren). This gives us an accurate record of attendance and would be the method of accountability in an emergency situation. We are also asking that a PARENT or approved adult pick up the children as soon as possible following worship. Siblings taking younger children out of the nursery makes an uncomfortable situation for the attendants because they need to know that the child is with a guardian adult. We are fortunate to be a small enough church that we don’t have to have a matching ID for parents and children, but we do take the safety of our children very seriously. If you haven’t read the Nursery Guidelines booklet for awhile, this is good time for a refresher. Copies are available in the nursery.

Welcome to our newest nursery attendant, Sydney Edwards! Please introduce yourself and make her feel at home at CPC.
Summer time means that some of our workers are gone until August. Volunteers (age 16 and older) may be needed on Sunday mornings. Please talk to Cheryl if you are willing to help a time or two.

The Racop family invites church members and friends to a celebration of Grant’s high school graduation on Saturday, May 27 from 1:00 to 5:00 pm at their home.

Holypalooza will be held at Central on September 17. This is a joint worship and celebration of ministries for Central Presbyterian, Centenary United Methodist, and St. Stephen’s Episcopal churches along with United Campus Ministries. The UCM annual fundraiser BBQ will be held the same day. Watch for Servicepalooza information as the ministries do mission together in the community.

“The Jesus Way” VBS will be held at Trinity Lutheran Church on June 19-22 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm. Registration forms are available at church or on the thcpc website.
The last day of Sunday School will be May 28. The adult/high school class will feature Alan Harder to talk about CPC’s history.  Alan has spent countless hours the last few weeks researching session minutes from the past 70 years as his work on the Mission Self Study Team. Anyone is welcome to join the class. There will NOT be weekly classes during the summer, however, there WILL be intergenerational classes on June 25 and July 31 at 9:30 am. Please plan to add these educational opportunities to your summer calendar. Childcare during worship continues all summer.

In an effort to keep the prayer needs of our family and friends off of the website, you will be receiving a separate email with the Koinonia Prayer List.  The same distribution list is used for both mailings, so if you unsubscribe to one, you have for both.

Happy Birthday to:
