GO!Trips

GO!Trips are CPC's short-term service and vision trips to see, love, and serve God's people. When we retreat from our everyday lives, we learn more about ourselves and the character of Christ. We practice thinking, praying, listening, and speaking like Jesus, opening our hearts to how God may lead us to engage with our families, workplaces, church, and community. Learn about our scholarship program.
