Come and enjoy the time together on the side lawn. Please bring a dish to share (and $3.00 per person for those over five years old) for hot-off-the-grill hamburgers and hot dogs. Ask a friend, family member, or new neighbor to be with us!
June 4 is also Teacher Recognition Sunday: this is the last day of regular Sunday School until Rally Day, August 27.

On August 27, Rally Day, there will be an 11:00 a.m. All Together Service, a single 11:00 a.m. worship service on Sept. 3 (Labor Day weekend), with 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. worship services resuming on Sept. 10.
When you have the opportunity, take some time to check out the board in the narthex congratulating this year's graduates.
For 2017 we especially desire cash donations due to transportation needs. Cash is needed as well to buy fresh fruit for our volunteers at the location. Funds may be contributed at this link. (Wait for the pop-up screen.) Volunteers and others may share this link with family in friends to assist us with fund raising. (Any prepackaged snack donations may be placed in the hall outside the church office until June 24.)
Additionally, the ASP Giving Board will be in the Narthex through June 24. The Giving Board will have ASP volunteers standing by on Sundays before and after worship to assist you with your donations and to provide information this year’s trip.
Rev. Stephanie Workman of the Kirk has worked hard to secure funding for FFF. The entire program has been certified as a USDA Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) and has received thousands of dollars of grant money.
Because of the USDA grant, all volunteers and staff from all participating churches must attend a one hour orientation one of two days: Wednesday, June 7th, 5:30 Potluck at CPC, or Monday, June 12th, 5:30 at Greenwood Forest Baptist (or by special arrangement with CPC Team: Medora, Jen, or Lori).
VBS will be held June 25-29, Sunday through Thursday evenings—for children from age 4 through rising 5th graders. Teachers (and other helpers), please sign up via the short form.
Our theme this year is "Hero
Central: Discover Your Strength in God!"
M&E grants exist to provide support for faith-based initiatives. These initiatives must align with the overall purpose of the Endowment Fund-to provide opportunities for members to support the benevolent, educational, and mission work of the whole church.
M&E grants are one-time, non-recurring gifts and are not intended to replace existing budgets or support ongoing projects. Any CPC member may apply. Not sure if a certain initiative falls within the grant guidelines? Please contact one of the committee members with this or any other questions regarding the application process.
Committee members are Ben Kadlec (Team Lead), Donna Adkins, Jim Bowdish, Barbara Carew, Brian Short and Meredith McGill.
Application deadline is Friday, June 16. Approved grants will be announced by August 1, with funds disbursed by September 1 (or as needed thereafter).
Grant applications as well as policy guidelines are located in the church office and online at www.carypresbyterian.org.
