- God in the Classroom (November 12th): Charles Forrest and Renee Miller have faced a uniquely difficult cultural and economic battleground in their time serving as principals of public schools in Northern Virginia.
- God in the Crisis Zone (November 19th): Tony Polizzi has done things. Some he can talk about. Some he cannot.

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.
