There are many ways to serve here at CPC. Here you will find some of the more highly scheduled (weekly, monthly) ways to get involved in the community.



Lamb Center

The streets of our community are strewn with souls who live in isolation, and who need most to know the love of Jesus Christ.  The Lamb Center is a partnership of local congregations loving and serving the poor and homeless.

As an expression of God’s love and an opportunity to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Western Fairfax Christian Ministries provides life essential support to those seeking assistance.

Please check the WFCM website for their most urgent volunteer and food pantry needs. Thanks in advance for helping these families who live just down the road from our CPC doors!

More ways to serve can be found on our Poverty and Hunger, Families and Children, Church Planting, and Disaster Relief pages.
