Slugs & Bugs Live!, June 5, 11-12 PM It’s been rescheduled finally! Slugs & Bugs Live is approximately 1 hour, with live music, animated video and background musical tracks that extend through all the songs. The concert is geared toward boys and girls age 10 and under, but we won’t kick the older kids out – they love it too! There are fun interactive moments, and also teaching moments during the program. Some of the material is ridiculously silly, and some of it is deeply meaningful and gospel centered. | REGISTER HERE
CPC is supporting several new missionaries in 2021, and the World Missions Team is excited for you to meet them. Join us on April 18th at 7:00 pm for a Zoom meeting with Ryan and Marcelina J, from Cornerstone PCA here in Maryland. Ryan and Marcelina are preparing to go to an Arabic-speaking country in the Middle East with no known churches of national believers. The story of how God has led them to cross-cultural ministry in a country hostile to Jesus and his gospel is one that you won’t want to miss! For security reasons, this interview will not be recorded, so register on Planning Center to join us on the 18th. |REGISTER
The Missions Committee of CPC’s session, along with the World Missions Team and Local Missions Team, want to thank you for your continued generosity in your giving to missions. We also wish to inform you of some changes in the online giving platform for contributing to missions. You now have a drop-down option on the menu to designate your missions monies more specifically to “local missions” or “global missions.” Any giving not specifically designated to local or global missions but simply to “missions” will be split between the two. We hope you find this more helpful in your giving. Thank you for your generosity!
We have 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.

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!
