MISSION AND OUTREACH


Donna Minnick's Memorial Fund used to Help the Homeless


With the blessings of Donna Minnick's family and approval of the memorial committee, bunk beds for the Men's Dormitory at the Christian Help Center  and Solano Dream Center were purchased.  These beds were greatly needed as a Homeless Camp in Vallejo is due to be dismantled 12-14-20.



CPC Supporting Meals in Vallejo

 

The Mission and Outreach Committee of CPC decided this week to allocate some of CPC’s mission monies to Vallejo Together’s Thanksgiving meals. Our donation of $2500 will ensure that low-income seniors, families living in their cars, and those Vallejo residents at homeless encampments will have a full Thanksgiving feast. Vallejo Together volunteers will be delivering meals made by First Baptist Church and a local catering company.

  • Lenten Bible Study

    We explored the book 24 Hours That Changed the World by Adam Hamilton.  We explored the facts and significance of Jesus' final day on earth.   We journeyed along with Adam Hamilton as he took us to the Holy Land to the physical locations.  We will also heard partial sermons that each chapter is based upon.  With each lesson are Scripture passages and famous works of art on the subject to contemplate.  This is a profound study that impacted us when we last studied it on the past.
