After worship on that Sunday, you can either pick up the flowers or designate where to have them delivered (on the Island please!)
CHRISTMAS IN SEPTEMBER (and OCTOBER):
There’s good news to share! So far, CPC has contributed a total of $1,513 for the Christmas food packages for the Mustard Seed Academy’s students and staff. These funds have been sent to Elaine Griswold, Executive Director, who will be traveling to Uganda on October 12th with those funds to purchase cows and other supplies! And Sonia Wagner has banana cake for those who have contributed, so be sure to see her after 10:15 am service today to get your cake! But most importantly – it’s not too late to contribute to “Christmas in September” (and October) so be sure to do so today!
