CPC will be organizing a 2 week Mission Trip to Albania in 2019.  There will be two information sessions for anyone who thinks they might want to be a part of ministering to the people of Albania and joining us on the trip.  We will meet at the church on Thursday, June 14th from 7-8 p.m. (dessert will be provided).  The second information session will be held on Sunday, June 24th right after church (pizza will be provided).

Bridal Shower for Bekah

The Sunday Morning Women’s class is hosting a bridal shower for Rebekah Yowell and Scott Gwynn.  All women are invited to celebrate Bekah and Scott on Saturday, June 30th at the church from 2-4pm.  Rebekah and Scott are registered at Bed, Bath & Beyond.  
 

Sandwich, Prayer, and Praise on Friday, June 22

Wilma and Bob Andrews will again to host a Sandwich, Prayer and Praise event in the Christ Presbyterian Church fellowship hall at 7 PM on Friday, June 22,  since the one scheduled for May 18 at church was cancelled due to the rain storm.  

Each attendee should bring an item to fill a sandwich and/or an appropriate side such as fruit, salad or chips that will feed at least 4, for couples that would be at least 8.  Wilma and Bob will provide a variety of bread (including gluten-free) and condiments along with water, lemonade and coffee.  There will be a time of fellowship while eating.  Attendees will be given the opportunity to share a very brief praise report of how God answered a recent prayer.  Prayer will be the main focus for the evening.

The primary prayer at this meeting will be silent prayer so there will be no expectations of being required to pray aloud.  In a circle or circles, depending on the number, each person will be given a card and asked to write down a prayer request that can range from personal to general.  The cards are collected, shuffled and redistributed.  During the prayer time each person will silently pray for the request on the card they have for about one minute then the leader will ask everyone to pass the card to the person seated to the left.  This continues until the cards have made their way around the circle.  In a circle of 8 people, each prayer request will receive 8 total minutes of prayer from 8 different individuals. 

There will be no child care but anyone, young or old, who can write a request, read and is willing to pray is more than welcome to be a participant in the event. 

If you plan to attend let the Andrews know of your intentions to give some general idea of how many will be attending.  Preferred communication is by e-mail to mr.bob.cpc@gmail.com with the number attending.

A room for Ben

Dear Church Family,

Our friend Ben is looking for a room to rent. His current housing arrangement ends this Sunday. He is a kind, 33 yr. old, Christian man who needs to live relatively close to the city center because he works two restaurant jobs in the Fan and uses a moped for transportation. His plan is to move into an apartment beginning in July, but he needs a place to stay for the month of June. Do you have a room to rent out to him? 

Please consider this opportunity and reach out to Kevin and Libby if you have any leads for Ben.

Thanks! 

Libby

SonChaser Show, Sunday, June 10

Join us Sunday, June 10, 7:30 p.m. in the sanctuary as SonChaser presents 'Faith and Fantasy', a dramatic mime show of inspiration and biblical based stories. This presentation is a family friendly show that will touch your heart and your funny bone. The Hobarts, founders of Sonchaser Ministries, have 30 years of experience in taking the art of mime and using the unseen to convey the truths of God's Kingdom. You will not want to miss out on this great evening.

Potluck this coming Sunday, May 20

As we look forward to our Potluck on Sunday, here are some things to keep in mind as you prepare.

    *Please bring food items already prepared and ready to serve (For example, if you bring a loaf of bread, please take the time to cut it into slices; if you bring a salad with multiple ingredients, please mix the ingredients together before dropping it off for potluck). Please do not bring frozen items, as ovens will be used only to warm up foods.  This will make things easier for those who are setting up potluck.

    **Please bring enough food for about 8-12 people for each adult that is coming to potluck. Here are the assignments for Sunday: 

  • If your last name begins with A-E, please bring a main course (meat, stew, soup, casserole, sandwiches, etc.). 
  • Last names F-L, come with a side dish (bread, salad, vegetables, chips, etc.). 
  • And last names M-Z, please provide dessert.

    **Please allow visitors, guests, and others with special needs to go through the line first.

    **If the fellowship hall looks especially full, consider bringing your food to eat in one of the classrooms or outdoors at the tables near the playground, to allow seating for guests and visitors in the fellowship hall.

**Consider signing up for potluck set up or clean up. It is a practical way to serve our church community and can be an opportunity to get to know some people better as you serve together.

We want our Potlucks to be good experiences for everyone, and for everyone to have enough to eat. Thanks for preparing accordingly! And hope to see you for lunch on Sunday!
