Here are some pictures from the Christmas Caroling last Saturday night. Thanks to everyone who came out and sang and everyone who let us sing to them. Special thanks to those who organized the wonderful dinner beforehand and the hot chocolate lounge afterward.

For the past two years CPC's Sunday School has been saving up to donate $1,500 to purchase a Joy to the World animal collection for Heifer International. They've collected cans, done good deeds, solicited donations at church fairs, sold various items after church, participated in the Gardener's Market and more. Just last week CPC's Mission Treasurer counted all the money and cut the check. Two sheep, four goats, a heifer cow, and two lamas are on their way to helping impoverished rural families. Our youngest Sunday School class also added some pigs. Thanks to everyone who contributed in ways large and small. A special thanks to Lorne Birch for continuing our focus on this important mission.

CPC got a surprise donation of a rather worn outdoor nativity set so after a great dinner we set to work with paint, brushes and artistic sensibility. Take a look at the pictures and look for the figures to grace the church lawn in a few days.
