The Community Presbyterian Church Mission Team provides leadership for our church family in manifesting God's love as shown in the life of Jesus by identifying and responding to special needs in and beyond Redmond through work parties, special projects, and our on-going commitments of time, talent, financial support, compassion, prayer and faithful service to God.
Projects supported by Community Presbyterian Church:
Mission supports children in need in the Redmond School District through the Family Access Network. Our Shoes for Kids Program provided shoes for children who otherwise would have gone without. Our Mission Team and Children's Ministries jointly hosted a "Shoes for Kids Drive" in March that brought in 229 pairs of shoes and purchased 64 additional pairs of shoes. Not only did Mission support Shoes for Kids, but also purchased ear buds for the Chrome Books Math Program at Vern Patrick Elementary School.
African Mission Project
The Mission Team supports the Kenya Steering Committee in its efforts to develop a partnership with the Kisauni Presbyterian Church Parish. Shown - Rev. Hui Hui and one of our members.
A delegation from Community Presbyterian Church traveled to Kenya to the Kisauni church and established a partnership with the Presbyterian Church of East Africa.

Redmond Christian Church provides the house for FISH food distribution and the deacons transport all donations from CPC to the shelves of the FISH house.
This mission collects soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, wipes and hair products for distribution to the Redmond School district for those students in need, as well as providing grooming aids to the homeless in Redmond and for Grandma's House in Bend.
Habitat for Humanity
The third home was completed in 2016. Not only do many of our members work on the houses, but also many CPC volunteers are on the Habitat for Humanity Board of Directors.
This program provides transitional housing and assists local families with financial, emotional, and educational support.
Our volunteers serve the meals one day every other month and also provide leadership for Jericho Table. We contributed funds to provide approximately 1700 meals in 2016 for the hungry in our community.

We support after-school care for community children which includes helping children with homework.
