Acts 1:8 - You will be my witnesses ... to the ends of the earth.
The Missions team of CPC reminds us that we are to live out Jesus’ admonition to “love one another as I loved you.” It is loving your neighbor. Your neighbor is next door, in the next town, the next state and lives on the other side of the globe. This is our belief and we live that belief out through local missions like PADS and CROP Walk. Regionally, we support Disaster Relief, and our annual Kentucky Trip. And globally we support several organizations as well as send groups to serve those in need.
