We have a CPCKids Ministry Director! Many of you know that for the past few years we have been praying for the right person to step into the role of leading our Kids Ministry. In God’s great timing, we are excited to announce that Jill Rumple will be joining our Staff as the Director of CPC Kids. Having previously served with CPC, our community knows firsthand Jill’s wonderful heart for kids and amazing gifts for ministry. CPC is so blessed to have her! Give her a warm welcome at jill@cpceco.org

New At CPC? Want to get connected? Come join our pastors for our monthly meet and greet next Sunday, March 26th after 2nd service at 11:45am in Rm 101 to hear more about life in our church family! Lunch and childcare provided.

Sunday Seminar this Sunday 10:30am in Rm 201. This week’s topic for Elephants in the Church: “Creation and Evolution.” For many people, science and religion are at war over who gets to explain the universe. Scientists are accused of overreaching and religious people of clinging to the past.  Is there a middle ground? Let’s discuss it this Sunday.

For Childcare: Parents of young children can attend the 9am service with kids (nursery available). Then, they may drop their children off at the beginning of the 10:30 service in 206 before they go to the seminar.

Next Sunday Seminar’s topic for Elephants in the Church: “One Second after you Die.” We have all heard about heaven and hell since we were little kids, but what do these places  even mean? Do these concepts even make sense in a modern world? Pastor Aaron leads us in a discussion of what the Bible actually says.

The Baby Bottle Campaign to collect donations for CPC partner, Life First, concludes this week. Many thanks for all the filled bottles turned in! If you have not already turned you bottle in, would you please drop it off in the church office? Thank you!
