Deacons and Donuts This Sunday, Oct 15th. At CPC we have Deacons, men and women who lead us in being a place where people are cared for and known. Each of us, even the pastors, have a Deacon that prays for them, checks in from time to time and when life gets hard, steps in to help. Next week before and after worship our Deacons will be in the gathering area with Duck Donuts and would love to meet you. So, save some room for a treat and a couple minutes to say hello to your Deacon next Sunday.
Need for Pot Roasts. Every month we prepare a meal of pot roasts for the Lamb Center (day shelter for homeless men and women). Would you prepare one of the thirteen roasts for October 17? Bring fully assembled on Sunday, October 15 or bring hot to CPC by 10:00 am on October 17. A simple recipe is on the CPC sign-up page and on our website. Let us know on the Sign-up Genius form.
Newcomers Meet & Greet Next Sunday. If you’re new to CPC and would like to know more about us, please join us for our New Comers Meet & Greet, next Sun Oct. 22nd after both services, in the foyer.
Help needed at WFCM. On November 4th, the local Scouts pick up food donated by our neighbors. Our neighbors have donated 50,000+ lbs. during this one-day large scale food collection and it requires a number of volunteers at the Boy Scout sort site (14280 Park Meadow Drive, Chantilly). If you are able to volunteer, please sign up here.
