CPC e-news for May 5, 2017
On Communion Sunday members are asked to make a voluntary contribution to the Deacons’ Fund so that they may aid the distressed and afflicted of our community. Special envelopes are available on the tables near the stairs to the narthex.
CLCA is hosting a Welcome Baby Shower for Nicholas Spencer on the day of his baptism, May 7. The family has requested that instead of gifts for Nicholas, donations to COVERED IN LOVE, INC be given.
