Keep our eight confirmands in your prayers as they prepare their faith journey. They are shown here on a bright Sunday morning sharing experiences.   They will meet with the Session  and be received into membership on Palm Sunday, March 25.  


  • Our last Lunch and Lent service will occur on Wednesday, March 21.   We meet at noon in Fellowship Hall for study/meditation and to enjoy a meal together.    Please bring your own lunch.



  • Our Reverse Lent Challenge is in full swing.  During Lent we traditionally give up something, or go without.  Reverse Lent means we are giving something more or adding something — in this case to the Northshore Food Bank. This Sunday bring 14.5 ounce cans of green beans or corn.



  • Palm Sunday is March 25.  Our Choir and select others will process into worship with Palms. This Sunday will also provide us our next opportunity to fellowship together at a Potluck Lunch. In addition, we will also have an Easter Egg Hunt for the children.


  • Maundy Thursday is March 29.  We will worship together at 6:00 p.m.


  • Easter Sunday, April 1. At our 10:30 worship service we will have communion and celebrate the Risen Christ. An offering for the “One Great Hour of Sharing” will be received. This offering reflects God’s love for our neighbors-in-need around the world. Isaiah 58 tells us: “You shall be called “Repairers of the Breach.”


  • Stephanie Mize, Thelma Stallcup and Linda Stewart.   Stephanie joined by Transfer of Letter from Lakeside Presbyterian Church in Brandon, Mississippi; Thelma  by Transfer of Letter from St. Charles Avenue Presbyterian Church in New Orleans and Linda  by Transfer of Letter from New Iona Presbyterian Church in West Monroe, Louisiana.  We are so pleased to have you in the CPC congregation.


Beautiful Oak and Barricades.   You may be wondering about the new barricades around the entrance to our church. The city is concerned that the root structure of the magnificent oak in our front yard may be at risk and is taking steps to protect and nourish it.  The arborist has said that parking on the roots will not damage the tree and it is likely we will not lose any parking spaces.  We expect the barricades to come down on Friday, March 23.


  • The March issue of The Lamplighter is now available on this website or can be mailed to your address.
