CHILD DEDICATION SUNDAY today.  Everyone is invited to fellowship with guests and families. An extended snack time at 10:15-10:45 will be shared.


CHURCH AUCTION - March 24 – It’s coming up soon. Please bring your auction items to the church THIS SUNDAY, if possible, so others can see what will be available to bid on. Not crafty? Donate a certificate for a service you can offer. Clean out the basement and bring an item you don't need anymore but someone else might love - music, books, sports equipment, furniture!  Bake something  (no need to bring that this Sunday)!  Put together a themed basket - movie night, kids toys, games, cooking items, coffee, the ideas are only as limited as your imagination!

Proceeds will help purchase a new mower for the church and help the youth group with youth conference expenses, if needed.


CONFERENCE PRAYER REQUEST - Pray for your sister churches in Nebraska: Beemer, Bellwood, Bethesda, Milford, Salem in Shickley, Wood River, and the Omaha Chin Christian Church (who will be joining CPMC this summer at Annual Meeting).


VBS SIGN UP - Child and volunteer sign up sheets are available in the Fellowship Hall for VBS. There are a variety of volunteer jobs so please consider volunteering. Questions? Ask Jennifer, Jeana, or Lisa.
