Steffan Manor School Ministry

Part of our ministry is to support our neighboring school, Steffan Manor Elementary School. We help them facilitate special events like their fund raising Jog-A-Thon, their Thanksgiving day feast for kindergarteners,  their Books and Breakfast event, and Dr Seuss Read Aloud day.  We also host coffee, donuts and juice for parents on the first day of school. At Christmas time we have our "Giving Tree" where we gift a book to two needy students in each class.  We are also cleaning lost and found coats for them. These events are announced through- out the year and everyone is welcome to join us in this "hands on ministry"!


Throughout the year you can donate needed supplies not provided by the school district. Teachers always need Kleenex, pencils, erasers, composition books, wet wipes, calendars, and "Boxtops for Education."

Steffan Manor Back-to-School Giveaway

On Friday, August 13, Community Presbyterian Church joined with other community organizations to provide free supplies to students for Steffan Manor.  


Due to Covid, this event was held as a drive-through giveaway using the back parking lot.  Families received masks, food, oral care kits, and a free book for each child.  


It is a joy to see how our greater community can come together to love our neighbors.

Thank you everyone who supported a Steffan Manor teacher!

CPC showed their appreciation to 45 Teachers, Administrative Staff, and Support Staff by giving a gift card and a hand written Thank You card!  

Thank you Everyone who Donated books for the annual Steffan Manor Give Away!

 Gift Books were distributed Tuesday, December 15th from 1:30-3:30 during the RTSC Food Distribution
