VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Childcare for the Davidson Family: Due to hospital restrictions, the vulnerability of Owen as he has just finished a week of radiation in addition to chemo, and the threat of COVD 19, we are suspending childcare help for the Davidsons right now.  We are eagerly awaiting word when they feel it will be safe to assist them again.

Meals Ministry
We need a willing servant or two to coordinate the Meals Ministry at CPC.  Please contact Leisa Hidey if you can help! Also, if you would like to be on the list of people who occasionally provide meals to our members and regular attenders after a birth or hospitalization, you can join the Group.

LOCAL MISSIONS

We have started a Local Missions at CPC Group on the Planning Center. Members of this group receive periodic emails with prayer requests and updates from our various local missions supported by CPC. If you would like to join, please click HERE.  

March 21, 2020, 5 PM, The Local Missions Team of CPC will be holding a dinner where TWO local ministries will be sharing with us. Reda and Nadia Narouz from the Salaam Center and Andrew Secrist from World Relief will be joining us to share about their ministries and opportunities for CPC to be involved. Both ministries are very active in ministering to refugees primarily from the Middle East, and this promises to be a fascinating time. The Local Missions Team will be providing the meat and drinks for the dinner; we ask that you bring a side dish or dessert if possible.
POSTPONED, rescheduled info TBD

The Route 1 Day Center Ministry is looking for a few more helpers and one team leader.  The commitment is 4 Saturdays a year.  If you are interested, please contact Rachel Schaefer. | MORE INFO

OTHER OPPORTUNITIES

FB Marketplace is a Facebook group for the purpose of selling household items, giveaways, job opportunities, housing requests, advice on home projects, etc.  If you are not a member of Facebook, the office can post there for you with your contact information.  Join here.

Amazon Smile: The Amazon Smile program is set up for you to shop on Amazon as you usually do (if you do…), with the only difference that you must start with the website address smile.amazon.com instead of www.amazon.com. When you use Amazon Smile, be sure to designate Columbia Presbyterian Church in Columbia MD (NOT the one in MS = Mississippi!) as your nonprofit charity, and the church will receive 0.5 percent of your purchase from the Amazon Smile Foundation.  Once you’ve first chosen CPC as your designated charity, it will be selected automatically every time you begin with smile.amazon.com. It’s that simple!
