CPC Social Media Roundup!

Central Presbyterian Church is now on Twitter! This communication platform will primarily be used for small bits of information such as Prayer requests and event notifications. We'll keep reminders of bigger events and news on our Facebook and Google + pages and longer more detailed information here on our website. I'll take this opportunity to also plug our Flickr page! It contains lots of photos from our past and our present and we'll be continuing to upload scans of older photos from the CPC's history there as well. Links to all of these sites can be found in the right hand column of this website!

Weird Animals are Coming!

God filled the world with a lot of crazy creatures...including you! When kids feel weird, different, or even lost in a crowd—nothing compares to the extraordinary love of Jesus. That why we're so excited to open registration for our Weird Animals VBS! Children from age 4 to rising 7th graders can register HERE! VBS will be from July 17th and 18th 5:30pm till 9pm and Saturday July 19th 9am till 1:15pm! We have lots of FUN and WeIrD things planned!

In addition to our Weird Animals VBS, Transitional Pastor Rev. David S. King will be holding an Adult VBS about being a Presbyterian. We will have an opportunity to explore our Presbyterian heritage and learn more about how we are like other churches and how we are different. Plan to join us in the Library, while the kids learn about Weird Animals, as we learn more about our unique part of the body of Christ. 

 

We hope to see everyone there!

2014 Presbyterian Women Birthday Offering

The Presbyterian Women’s Birthday offering will be received on June 29, during morning worship. The offering funds up to five projects that are not included in ongoing General Assembly mission support, such as agricultural development, child care, community organization, criminal justice, drug counseling, economic justice, elderly care, employment training, homelessness, literacy, violence and women’s concerns.
The Creative Ministries Offering Committee has chosen one project—Blue Corn Mothers Alliance—as the recipient of the 2014 Birthday Offering of Presbyterian Women. This project provides a range of services, from crisis intervention to education, for Albuquerque’s Native American women who experience domestic violence. The grant amount will depend on gifts contributed during 2014. The goal for the 2014 Birthday Offering is $500,000. Please give as you have been blessed and support this life-changing project.

Pentecost Sunday

The Pentecost Offering

Investing in the Church’s Greatest Resource. Our Youth.

The Special Offerings are a way for all Presbyterians to make a difference in the lives of people around the world. The Pentecost Offering, one of four Special Offerings, gives us the unique opportunity to share God's love by helping nurture faith in our youth and young adults.

Faith-Building Opportunities.

Gifts to this Offering support young people in a variety of ways in the community and on a global level.

  • 40% of your contributions remain within our congregation for use on behalf of youth in our community. We'll invest the funds received in local programs focused on children at risk and development of youth.
  • The Presbyterian Mission Agency uses the remaining 60% to improve the lives of youth and young adults around the world by supporting programs like the Youth Triennium and Young Adult Volunteers (YAVs). From advocacy that nurtures and protects our children, to ministries that inspire youth and those called to accompany them in their walk with Christ, your gifts serve young adults worldwide by bringing them together in fellowship, worship, and service.

Your Gift Will Make a Difference.

The opportunities and care provided to youth through the Pentecost Offering are invaluable in sharing the love of Christ. With your support, we can help transform young lives and make a positive impact in generations to come for a hopeful future. Here are some examples of how your gift makes a difference:

  • More than 5,200 young people attended the Presbyterian Youth Triennium in 2013
  • One-third of all Young Adult Volunteers go on to ordained leadership

How to give:

  • Through the Pentecost Offering at CPC Sunday, June 8th
  • Through the web at presbyterianmission.org/give/pentecost
  • Text "YOUNG" to 20222

 Help us share God's love. Please give generously to the Pentecost Offering. For answers to questions, contact the Presbyterian Mission Agency by visiting presbyterianmission.org/pentecost or by calling 800.728.7228, x5047.
