Announcements for Sunday, May 5, 2024


Pastor Rob Bromhead returns to teach our next three-week Sunday seminar starting May 5th at 9am. Most Christians avoid the topic of Doubt like the plague as if it is a sickness that will infect us, yet it is something that all of us have experienced and wrestled with. What is doubt and what does the Bible tell us to do with it? Come join us as Pastor Rob leads us through God’s Word.

We have a new Interim Director of Missions at CPC!

Lucille Marciano brings a wealth of ministry experience and a deep love for the Lord to our missions ministry. Over the coming months Lucille will oversee the missions ministries of our church family as we prayerfully search for our next permanent missions leader following the recent retirement of Sharon Hoover. Please do join us in giving her a warm welcome to the CPC family! 

CPC’s annual Spring Food Drive has begun!

Throughout the month of May we will be collecting items needed for Haymarket Regional Food Pantry and for Western Fairfax Christian Ministries. Help us stock the shelves of our local food pantries. Most-needed lists and food drive flyers will be on our website and available for pick up in the church lobby. Bring donations anytime! Contact for any additional information.

'It Doesn't Have To Be This Way.'

Matthew 5:2-11 | Pastor Paul Lauerman

Despite living in world where people have access to more material blessings than ever before, it has become apparent that many people are more miserable than ever. Why is that? What is the plan for human flourishing (and happiness) that Jesus has to offer?
