Sign-ups start on Nov. 9-10 on the CPC patio.
CPC has a long history of reaching out to families in need during the Christmas season. We have 300 families we will be providing a Christmas to this year. Our recipients are Christian Home Baptist Church in Richmond, City Impact in San Francisco, Today's Youth Matter in Milpitas, Bay Community Fellowship & CityTeam in Oakland, Next Step (Valley Pregnancy Center) in Pleasanton and Shepherd's Gate and Birth Right in Livermore.
The adopted families range in size from 2 to 12. CPC spends four weeks beginning Nov. 9-10 parceling these families out to church members who are willing to shop for the recipient inner city families and spread the season of Joy to others. The family gifts are wrapped, boxed and delivered on Dec. 7th to waiting trucks at CPC between the hours of 8:00 to 10:00 am. The gifts are then delivered to the inner city families on that same day.
Unspeakable Joy is experienced as these gifts are unloaded and given to these needy families. If you are so led to want to be a part of this program, you can contact Sam Del Arroz at (925) 323-7974. Maybe you are a workplace group, maybe you are a school room, and maybe you are a Cub Scout group or a Brownie group. Whoever you are, we can help you to reach out in this blessed season.
Instructions for wrapping your Adopt-a-Family gifts are here.

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.
