Life events

Baptism

Baptism begins one’s Christian journey whether as an infant or adult. At CPC, we take the Sacrament of Baptism seriously in order that those receiving the sacrament and their caregivers understand the significance of their vows.

Marriage

Marriage is more than the joining of two faithful souls. It is a sacred bonding that confesses Jesus Christ as an integral part of their relationship. At CPC, counseling by the pastor is an essential part of the marriage process.
