Little Lambs Ministry. Have you heard of the Little Lambs Ministry here at CPC? We are a group of knitters and crocheters who create blankets and shawls for members in need of a tangible way of being wrapped in God’s love. The items are prayed over before being delivered to a recipient and love is knit into every stitch. We would love to bless you with one of our lovely items. We have baby blankets for new babies. We also have lap blankets or shawls for those perhaps recovering from an illness or surgery, on bed rest, are going through a difficult time or have lost someone special. To request a blanket or shawl, please contact your deacon or Karen Wroniewicz in the front office. If you have any questions or would like to join our team of fiber artists, please contact Susan Blair at SusanDBlair@aol.com.
Paper Product Plus Collection. Next time you go to the grocery store, would you pick-up paper supplies for the Lamb Center (day shelter for the homeless)? They need sturdy paper plates and bowls, plastic cutlery, cold & hot beverage cups (8oz), paper towels, 13-gallon trash bags with drawstrings, and more. List available at the Connection Center or click the link here. Items are needed by October 31.
Student Ministry Parent Meeting this Sunday. We will have a parent meeting right after the 10:30 AM service to get input from parents about the student ministry. We will also be talking about major revisions to the student ministry, in particular the high school students. We look forward to seeing you in Room 201!
Sunday Seminar: “Martin Luther: The Man who Broke the Church.” Our final meeting for this series is this Sunday, Oct 1st at 9am in Room 201. The most pivotal moment in Christian history was when this unknown monk rebelled against his government and even his church because they said he could not preach God’s Word. He risked his life and his movement changed the course of the entire world.
