Volunteer Opportunity with Today’s Youth Matter – Saturday, Dec. 14th
Today’s Youth Matter has a big, fun shin-dig going down on Sat, Dec 14th from 1p-4p. It will be an amazing opportunity to love on and minister to our kids and families. We are expecting nearly 200 people! Now that IS a shin-dig right?
55 families, mostly from Richmond, have been adopted by CPCers. In addition to a HOOT of a party we are going to have together, these families will be picking up their gifts that afternoon that another family purchased on their behalf. Thank you Jesus for this provision!
We need a crew -- with YOU -- that will help bring this party to life. The setting is a continuation of our camp theme -- An Old-Town Road Christmas! Please click below to visit the RSVP form and check out all of the different roles available -- from helping decorate, to baking cookies, to helping kids make crafts. All SUPER FUN opportunities to connect and positively impact kids!

FALL OPPORTUNITIES AT HARBOR HOUSE
Help Youth and Adults Flourish Academically & Emotionally!
Program goals are being set, curriculum is being selected, and the classrooms are being prepared. All that's needed is a few more volunteers. Would you considering making an investment in the lives of children and adults at Harbor House this fall?
Shepherd's Gate: As part of our Road to Freedom program at Shepherd’s Gate, we work hard to offer a variety of events and activities that help residents and their families heal from abuse, addiction and cycles of poverty while discovering ways to have fun in a healthy environment.
We would like to invite CPCers to sign up as a small group or individuals for an event or activity. We trust that as the CPC community engages with our women and children, they will see the Lord working in their lives and feel blessed to have you as a part of their journey.
