News & updates
Contra Dancing is held on the 2nd Saturday of each month this year. Unless otherwise posted, CPC will host in the Fellowship Hall.
The next Fellowship Work Day is currently scheduled for January 8th, between 8am-1pm. We need a plan for breakfast and lunch. Please volunteer to administrate if that is your gift. Otherwise, Pastor Sargent will be in charge of it, and that's on you.
A volunteer is needed for monitoring the camera (starting/stopping, and checking to make sure it's working). Training provided. Must have a smartphone and show up 10 minutes before service.
We have received a bid for having our lighted sign repaired and a very large banner put on our north-facing wall. The elders will make a decision about this soon.
The knitted throws on the pews in the sanctuary are for whomever needs one during service. Please use them. If you do use one, please place it underneath the rear-most pew so it can be cleaned. If you should fall in love with the excellent craftsmanship, one may be taken home for a suggested donation of $20. Proceeds go toward more yarn.
