CPC’s Mission Ministry wants to help connect your passions and abilities with the needs in our world. As we join hands with partner organizations and missionaries, physical and spiritual needs are being met in our community and across the globe.
Our mission priorities focus on four specific areas: Families & Children, Poverty & Hunger; Church Planting & Evangelism; and Disaster Relief. Visit the “Serve” tab in our CPC website for descriptions of all our ministry partners. With the ever-changing needs, check back frequently. New opportunities emerge each day.
Here are some ideas to consider as you pray and ponder about ways to serve. We’ve assembled the lists in several categories to assist your search. We partner with missionaries, mission organizations, and community agencies to live out our calling to be Christ’s witnesses. Our love for God becomes visible and vocal as we walk alongside neighbors near and far.
