The Joy Ministry of CPC exists to bring glory to God as every senior grows in grace, connects deeply in relationship, and serves others using their God given gifts.  Through monthly events, day trips, small group Bible studies, and service to others, seniors are transformed by the grace of the gospel as they celebrate life together and life in Him.  

 

If you are a vibrant retiree who enjoys day trips, special entertainment, growth opportunities and serving our Lord, then the Builders’ Ministry is for you!  Please contact Anne to join our mailing list.

IMG_3428The Friendship Ministry reaches out in love to the greater St. Louis community and leads adults with special needs into a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ.

By God’s word, through God’s love, and with God’s promises to individuals, we train these unique people to live as disciples within a church community. Each week, groups of adults with special needs participate in a variety of learning experiences led by a team of gifted, trained, loving, and enthusiastic Friendship Class ministry team members.  We meet in a creative and caring environment, which includes Thursday night Friendship Classes and  Sunday School Classes.

  • Sunday School Friendship Class every Sunday in Room #240 at 9:00 a.m.

  • Worship for Friendship Class every Sunday at 10:30 a.m.

  • Weekday Friendship class meets for 8-week semesters during the Fall and Spring on Thursdays from 7:00-8:30 p.m.
