What To Expect

We are a very easygoing congregation even though the church looks formal with all the stained glass windows.  Our Sunday morning worship at 10:30 a.m. in the sanctuary is traditional with prayer, hymns, scripture readings, and a sermon.  Our worship service also has a cheerful vibe that reflects our community.  During the service, after the Children’s Message, the children leave to attend Sunday school. If desired, childcare is available during worship.

What happens when I come to a worship service?

Before entering the sanctuary, you will receive a bulletin from one of our church members. You may sit wherever you want. The worship service is in the bulletin along with announcements. The worship service is easy to follow and hymnals are available in the pews. We stand for items marked with an asterisk.  However, feel free to stay seated if you are unable to stand.

After the worship service, we have coffee hour.  Feel free to join us.

What should I wear?

We do not have a dress code.  You will find that some people dress up and some people dress casually.  We want you to be comfortable.  All are welcome!

When is communion?

We celebrate the sacrament of communion on the first Sunday of each month. Everyone is welcome at the communion table where we remember Jesus’ last supper and how he died for us. At CPC, we celebrate communion by intinction.  When you come forward, you will take a piece of bread or a gluten free wafer, dip it into the grape juice, serve yourself, and return to your seat.

Where do I enter and park?

The main entrance to the church is the middle set of doors on Fern Ave.  There are more entrances in the back of the church.

The church has a small parking lot.  However, there is plenty of on street parking.

Is the sanctuary handicapped accessible?

There is a handicapped entrance and handicapped parking in the back of the church which may be accessed via Maple Ave.

What happens if I am new?

We want you to enjoy the service and feel comfortable.  Join us and know that you will not be asked to introduce yourself or be singled out in any way.  We look forward to meeting you.
