Missions of CPC
As a community of Christian believers, we at CPC feel called to be God’s hands, feet, and heart in the world. We are dedicated to love our neighbor, feed His sheep, and minister to the stranger. In the Gospels, Jesus calls us to reach out to our neighbors in need. When ask who those neighbors are, he replied everyone. At the Beaches, there are many people with plenty and there are many in need. Members of CPC are called to be open to the needs around them and surprised at what God can do with our giving.
We also feel called that our community is not defined by our wooden walls or our island home, but as God calls us to see needs in His world. We work to minister to our congregation and our world to show our thanks for God’s grace. The Mission Committee has recently set up a calendar to focus on different missions of the church every month. (Please see it below for details.) To support the missions, member can give money, volunteer time, or supply donations (Blue Bins).
Please think and pray about becoming involved in mission work at CPC. Please contact Robert McCrary (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Melinda Goins (email@example.com) with questions or thoughts. (Many of the mission pages also have contacts within CPC and at the mission itself.)
