Community Presbyterian Church participates in God's Mission in the world through three primary initiatives, two local and one global.
CPC has partnered with Mosaic Medical during
the pandemic to help provide low cost health
services to our community.
CPC has been faithfully involved with meeting the needs of our poorest neighbors in Redmond since the founding of Jericho Road in 2007. Our members volunteer to serve the meal on Thursday nights, serve on the board of directors and more.
Kisauni Parish Partnership Parking Lot Sale Update
The Kisauni Partnership Committee has decided to cancel the annual CPC Parking Lot Sale in September due to safety concerns related to the Covid-19 pandemic. We have used the money raised from this event to support our five-year commitment to help fund the Feeding and Hygiene Programs operated by our Kisauni Parish partner church in Mombasa, Kenya. Kenyans are suffering economically from the pandemic just as we are in the U.S., and the feeding and girls’ hygiene programs are essential for students to be able to attend school.
In place of the parking lot sale, we are asking those of you who would normally donate or buy items at the sale (along with any others who are interested) to participate in a “Virtual Sale” by making a contribution to the Kisauni Designated fund for the Feeding/Hygiene Programs on or after September 13. Contributions may be made online or with a check identifying “PLS” on the memo line. We appreciate your willingness to make a difference in the lives of Kenyan students.
We have an established and ongoing church to church partnership with a mature and fast-growing parish in Mombasa, Kenya. There is a whole team from our church that meets online with Elders in Kenya regularly, as guided by the Kenya Mission Network
Currently, CPC contributes to two of Kisauni Parish's projects. Learn more about this unique mission partnership by visiting our Kenya Mission Partnership Blog!
Feeding Children Project: Five days per week, more than 350 school children receive breakfast and lunch, as a ministry of the Kisauni Parish. CPC is contributing $1,500 of the annual $27,200 cost while the Kisauni Parish collects the balance.
Women's Hygiene Project: The Women's Guild of the Kisauni Parish provides hygiene products to girls and women in Mombasa's community, orphanages, and hospice centers. Without these products, young women and girls would not be able to attend school. CPC is contributing $600 of the annual $12,408 budget.
Fan advocates are in all our local schools, well positioned to know and care for kids and families. We participate in a jacket, hat and mitten drive each Fall and a shoe drive each Spring. We partner with FAN to meet other needs year-round.
Additionally, the CPC Mission Team and many members give generous financial and volunteer support to the following local organizations: CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate), COPY (Central Oregon Partnership for Youth), FISH Food Pantry, Habitat for Humanity, Meals on Wheels, REACH, Redmond Cold Weather Shelter (with Shepherd's House).
