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.

    Serve our church community as an usher, Lay Care Minister, Kids' or Student Ministries volunteer, and more.
    Serve our local community through meal ministries, Urban Homeworks, prayer ministries, urban outreach, etc.

    Serve our global community through advocacy, as a World Vision sponsor, and more.
