Nursery Volunteers Needed

After nearly ten years of faithful service to the young children and their families in Central Presbyterian, Laura Cosner has resigned from her position as full time nursery attendant. She is taking this time to explore other areas in which she can grow and help nurture others at Central. In fact, she has already been asked and accepted a position on a committee! Laura, THANK YOU for all you have done. We will miss your smiling face in the nursery every Sunday, but will enjoy seeing you become more involved in other areas.

To help fill the role of nursery attendant, the Education Committee has decided to try a weekly sign up period. The sign up sheet will be posted on the bulletin board in McElyea Hall. One or two people will be needed each Sunday. Two people would allow the older children to go outside while the other person stays inside with the younger infants. Please see Amanda or Laura Pierce with any questions.

Faith Endures

Faith Endures

“Hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts.” (Romans 5:5)

The One Great Hour of Sharing Special Offering will be taken during our Easter Morning Service.


When you give to One Great Hour of Sharing you are assisting in the empowerment of others as they move past emotional, physical, and spiritual misfortune. Your help gives hope.

At home and abroad, Presbyterian Disaster Assistance helps strengthen the faith community and enables those affected by natural or human-caused disasters to be part of the rebuilding and recovery efforts in their communities.

Life-changing grassroots programs like Huerto de la Familia (The Family Garden) are supported by the Presbyterian Hunger Program. Huerto de la Familia strives to cultivate community integration and economic self-sufficiency through training in organic farming and the development of food-based small businesses.

Self-Development of People, through your generous gifts, provides grants to organizations like A Community Voice in New Orleans, a neighborhood group which assists low-to-moderate-income families in applying for jobs, housing, and food assistance.

Give to One Great Hour of Sharing to support these Presbyterian Mission Agency ministries as they strive to help all of God’s people find resilience, hope, and faith in the face of challenging circumstances.

There are three ways to contrinbute to the One Great Hour of Sharing Offering. Donate at CPC using the envelopes located in the Easter Bulletin, text OGHS to 20222 to give $10, or donate online at .
