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 LOCALLY
Serve our local community through meal ministries, Urban Homeworks, prayer ministries, urban outreach, etc.
