Leadership Sunday Seminar | How To ACTUALLY Win The Argument. Too often, we live in a world of people yelling at each other. No one listens. No one changes their mind. How do you speak in a way that actually persuades people? How do you lead in a way that motivates peoples’ hearts? Join us at 9am this Sunday in Room 201.

Coat Collection. During the month of August we are collecting new and gently-used coats, jackets, and hooded sweatshirts for local teens in impoverished families. Counselors at Westfield High School and Stone Middle School noted that most needed are Adult Large sizes, but also adult Medium and X-Large would be most welcome (and in dark colors). Drop off in the designated box in CPC’s lobby. Thank you!

Men’s 2nd Annual Cornhole Tournament. Calling all the men of CPC for our annual Cornhole Tournament and BBQ. Let’s have a great time playing games, hanging out and eating great food, Saturday, August 19th at 11am, here at CPC.

Increasing need for Pot Roasts. The number of men and women is increasing at the Lamb Center (day shelter for people experiencing homelessness).
