Join us for a prepared simple Soup and Bread meal followed by a meaningful prayer service at 7 pm.
The service will conclude with the imposition of ashes.
An intergenerational team composed of members and friends of CPC will participate in a Guatemala Mission Trip from July 19th – July 26th. The team will be working with Vale United Methodist Church (VUMC) and the Highland Support Project (HSP) in community outreach and building. HSP promotes the ongoing and lasting transformational development of Mayan communities in the highlands of Guatemala. As part of their Partners in Service program, participants are provided with meaningful service and learning opportunities while delivering valuable resources to grassroots Guatemalan organizations. Participants spend a week in Guatemala working on projects such as stove building, classroom construction, reforestation and a Mayan arts program.
Currently, there are several members of the CPC community who have expressed an interest in this experience. Participation is open to any and all who have an interest. There is no specific age limitation (current interest ranges in age from 13 and up). Although there is a cost involved, we have several strategies to address this challenge through both CPC mission budget funds and creative fundraising. The first step is to let us know of your potential interest. Even if you can not go on the trip, we also welcome participation in other areas of this project.
If you would like to learn more about this opportunity, there will be a meeting SATURDAY, MARCH 8th at 9:30AM at the church. Team members will also be available at coffee fellowship on SUNDAY, MARCH 9th. To find out more information about this project visit: www.partnersinservice.org. You can also feel free to talk to the following people who are currently hoping to participate and have attended informational sessions as part of the Mission Trip Task Force: Velma and Gabby Armijo, Marilyn Dorn, Sue and Kim Ferguson, and Mark and Ian Plecity (Mark is a previous participant of this project). If you are unable to attend Saturday’s meeting but would like to know more, please feel free to contact Sue Ferguson at firstname.lastname@example.org. Initial deposits and registration forms will be due in EARLY APRIL so we need to know of your potential interest ASAP.
