"Taste and see that the LORD is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him" - Psalm 34.8
Each Wednesday evening, from 5:30 to 8:30, CPC hosts a ministry of hospitality to our church community and neighbors. Midweek is an excellent time to take a short break from the busyness of the week.
The evening is divided into four 45 minute sessions. If you have 45 minutes, or 3 hours, the evening is divided into four sections that offer something for every age and every stage of spiritual life.
The highlight of Midweek is a thoughtfully prepared meal, provided free of charge. A meal is served at 5:30 and again at 6:15, with light snacks available at 7:00. Come as you are able.
The various classes and ministries of Midweek change from semester to semester, but you will always be able to enjoy a meal along with a session or two. From nursery to childhood to youth to adult, all of the sessions are open to drop-ins, so you are welcome, even if you can only attend Midweek sporadically. Enjoy the meal and the fellowship.
A meal schedule for our Fall Semester can be found here!
If you are a CPC regular, Midweek is a great opportunity to share your church with your friends and neighbors.
There are no programs offered during Section 1 from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m. this fall to encourage fellowship around a meal at the start of the evening.
Nursery Childcare (0-36 months) is offered during Sections 2, 3, and 4.

LISTENING TO SERMONS SKILLFULLY: Led by Pastor John Jones | Young Adults Room (Formerly the Library)
How can sermon-listening happen in this new digital landscape? Together, we’ll consider challenges to sermon-listening, what a sermon is, how a sermon works, how a sermon is made, and what a sermon does, with the hope that we’ll better understand how to listen to a sermon. This class is taught by a sermon-maker who believes expositional sermons speak today just as effectively as they always have, it’s the listening that becomes harder.
KNIT WITS: Led by Carol Beatty | Parlor
A time of fellowship with other women, while sharing our love of knitting, crocheting, cross-stitching, quilting, and crafting! A time to listen, share, love, encourage, and support one another while completing those projects we have around the house.
