Although weather and foliage generally mark the changes in the seasons, the start of school signals the change in our calendars.
I encourage you to consider your spiritual growth and devotional practices as you evaluate your upcoming capacities and commitments. Worship of the living God, discipleship of Jesus Christ, and the mission of his Gospel are our priorities, and we pray that you will join with us in them this fall.
Below are a few ways to participate in the life of the Body this coming fall and grow in Christ together.
Starting in September we will be preaching through Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5-7. | Listen to sermons here.
Community Groups are places to build relationships and experience God’s transforming grace. These groups are a place where the Bible, prayer, and personal care weave together. You may not have the capacity or the opportunity to connect with every one at CPC, but you can connect with a few in Community Groups.

Sunday Morning Classes
Discovering CPC | Sept 8 – October 13
Teachers: Randy Lovelace & P.D. Mayfield
This seminar is a great way to learn more about CPC, meet some of our leadership, and get to know other visitors. We will talk more about our beliefs, practices, and ways you can better connect at CPC. This class is not required but recommended for membership.
Romans 1-8 | Sept 8 – Dec 15
Teacher: Bill Sciannella
Come join us for an interactive, discussion oriented study of the book of Romans. Romans is Paul’s most complete theological book covering almost every major doctrine of evangelical Christianity. However, Paul also wrote five application-filled chapters showing us that theology not practiced in our everyday lives is useless. Come join us as we investigate this wonderful New Testament treasure.
*NOTE: This class will continue with chapters 9-16 in February.
The Kingdom Seminar: Advanced Bible Survey Part 1 | Sept 8 – Dec 15
Teachers: Joel Strand, John Song, Evan Kuester
This year-long class will examine the meta-narrative of the entire Bible in relation to the Kingdom of God from Genesis to Revelation. The class will cover the main themes of Scripture and how it centers on Christ, and also speak to proper hermeneutics and the application of scripture to everyday life. A basic understanding of the Bible is not required but suggested.
*Note: This class is open to both adults and high school students. Part 2 will begin in February.
The Gospel-Centered Life | Oct 20 – Dec 15
Teachers: P.D. Mayfield & Jim Wilmot
The Gospel of Jesus saves. And the Gospel of Jesus shapes every aspect of life. We will be looking at key Bible passages and themes that deepen our grasp of the Gospel and cultivate our need for continual renewal. The Gospel that personally transforms us from the inside out also moves outward to love and serve others. This class is perfect for newer Christians being established in their faith or non-Christians exploring Christianity. This class is also great for mature believers who desire renewal from the same Good News that brought them from death to life.
