Members of CPC continue to serve monthly meals to the men in the rehabilitation program. Two teams alternate each month usually preparing a meal off-site. We are pleased to have new members join in serving and always are looking to reach out to others to join us. Serving a meal at the SRM can be an awesome outreach opportunity as well and we hope to focus on more outreach this year.

CPC members continue to volunteer at holiday meals, morning public breakfast, donating needed items for the rehabilitation program and emergency shelter on Taylor Street. CPC also collected donations for Undie Sunday and Operation Hope Totes, although participation decreased from previous years.

The SRM celebrated their 125th anniversary and CPC made a donation of $750 which included a table at the banquet held in Agawam. Nine members of the congregation attended that event. As always my prayer is that we continue to pray for and serve the SRM so they can continue the work of serving those in need.
