2014 GO! TRIPS
GO! Trips are CPC's short-term service and vision trips to see, love, and serve God's people. In 2014 CPCers travel to:
- El Salvador - June
- Nicaragua - August
- Zambia - October/November
- Zambia - November/December
Learn more about these trips and how you can love and serve God's people around the world this year!
Part of CPC's mission statement is a desire for us all "to live missionally." This is more than doing mission work or service projects — it is about the people of God bringing the Kingdom of God to bear in all that we are and do. But acts of service are a tangible way to live out our faith in the church, in the community, and in the world.
