Honoring our Past • We will host a diverse series of celebratory activities and events culminating in 2014 on the Sesquicentennial of our congregation’s founding.
Living fully in the Present • We will deepen our commitment through: • Worship, • Mission, • Education, and • Fellowship
Preparing for the Future • Our church buildings form an essential foundation and setting for our Ministry, but the bricks and mortar have deteriorated from the passage of time. • It is our responsibility to do what is needed to sustain them for years to come.
Facilities and Sustainability Program • As good stewards of God’s creation, CHPC will thoroughly evaluate our facilities, including the Manse, and our programs to make them truly sustainable for generations to come. • Church members and professional experts will identify issues that require immediate, short-term, and long-term attention, so they can be resolved appropriately.
Capital Campaign • CHPC does not currently have the financial structure or resources sufficient to support our shared ministry life over the long run. • The Riston bequest enabled the major repair of the front brick face of the church. • We will seek commitments to not only address today’s needs but also to build a more permanent foundation to support the next 150 years.
Together, Let Us Give Thanks Give thanks with a grateful heart Give thanks to the Holy One Give thanks to God who gives us Jesus Christ the Son And now let the weak say I am strong Let the poor say I am rich Because of what the Lord has done for us. Give thanks, give thanks, give thanks.
