Worship Services

8:30 a.m. Worship
Our early morning service is a more intimate, contemplative worship experience than our later service. Traditional elements, including liturgies, hymns, scripture and sermon remain. However, the order of service has been modified to provide more opportunity for silent prayer and reflection.

9:45-10:45 a.m. Sunday School

11:00 a.m. Worship
Our 11:00 a.m. service is a blend of traditional and contemporary music, liturgical experiences and celebrations of our lives together.
*The last Sunday of each month is what we call "All Together Sunday," with everyone participating in a single worship service at 11:00 a.m.

CPC Church Picnic, June 4

This summer's Sunday School Church Picnic is June 4 after 11:00 a.m. worship and immediately following the new sign dedication.

Come and enjoy the time together on the side lawn. Please bring a dish to share (and $3.00 per person for those over five years old) for hot-off-the-grill hamburgers and hot dogs. Ask a friend, family member, or new neighbor to be with us!

June 4 is also Teacher Recognition Sunday: this is the last day of regular Sunday School until Rally Day, August 27.

Summer 10:00 a.m. Worship Service begins June 11

All Together Services for summer begin on June 11. That day is also Graduation Sunday, and will include recognition for all high school and college graduates.

Mark your calendars for these summer service changes: a single 10:00 a.m. Sunday worship service will continue each week through August 20. On August 27, Rally Day, there will be an 11:00 a.m. All Together Service, a single 11:00 a.m. worship service on Sept. 3 (Labor Day weekend), with 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. worship services resuming on Sept. 10.

Graduation Sunday, June 11

Youth and Families Ministry will recognize our Cary Presbyterian Church high school and college graduates (even adult grads) during worship on June 11 at the first 10:00 a.m. All Together Service for summer!

2017 Appalachia Service Project Fundraising Emphasis

For 27 years, Cary Presbyterian Church has partnered with Appalachia Service Project. This year, 38 CPC volunteers will make up six teams serving with ASP in Scott County, Tennessee from June 25 through July 1.

For 2017 we especially desire cash donations due to transportation needs. Cash is needed as well to buy fresh fruit for our volunteers at the location. Funds may be contributed at this link. (Wait for the pop-up screen.) Volunteers and others may share this link with family in friends to assist us with fund raising. (Any prepackaged snack donations may be placed in the hall outside the church office until June 24.)

Additionally, the ASP Giving Board will be in the Narthex through June 24. The Giving Board will have ASP volunteers standing by on Sundays before and after worship to assist you with your donations and to provide information this year’s trip.

The time is short until we leave for Tennessee, so we hope you will donate soon. Thanks to everyone who has assisted our ASP initiatives in the past.

Food, Friends, Fun! is back this summer!

It’s almost time for this summer’s Food, Friends, Fun (FFF) with families from the Wrenn Drive neighborhood!

Rev. Stephanie Workman of the Kirk has worked hard to secure funding for FFF. The entire program has been certified as a USDA Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) and has received thousands of dollars of grant money.

  • Our own Jen Pierce has been hired as the overall program director.
  • A professional cook has been secured for all sites! (We only need to assist, serve....and eat!)
  • The grant provides all supplies from plates to napkins, paint to glue, and salaries for program staff!
  • New Hope Presbytery awarded FFF a Passion Driven Grant to supplement any needs not covered under the larger grant.
  • 80 Wrenn Drive family members have already registered for this summer!

HOW WILL YOU PARTICIPATE? Help is needed with: Reading, Recreation, Child care, Shepherding groups, Crafts, and Driving.

Because of the USDA grant, all volunteers and staff from all participating churches must attend a one hour orientation one of two days: Wednesday, June 7th, 5:30 Potluck at CPC, or Monday, June 12th, 5:30 at Greenwood Forest Baptist (or by special arrangement with CPC Team: Medora, Jen, or Lori).

REMEMBER: Helpers of all ages are welcome!

CPC’s Food, Friends, and Fun is each Wednesday, beginning June 21 through August 23, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.Sign up in the narthex or through the Sign-up Genius link here.

Memorials & Endowment Committee 2017 Grant Cycle

Application Deadline: June 16

Is there a mission or faith based activity you are passionate about that is not sponsored through the CPC budget? If so, a grant from the Memorials & Endowment Team is a great way to get needed funds for your project.

M&E grants exist to provide support for faith-based initiatives. These initiatives must align with the overall purpose of the Endowment Fund-to provide opportunities for members to support the benevolent, educational, and mission work of the whole church.

M&E grants are one-time, non-recurring gifts and are not intended to replace existing budgets or support ongoing projects. Any CPC member may apply. Not sure if a certain initiative falls within the grant guidelines? Please contact one of the committee members with this or any other questions regarding the application process.

Committee members are Ben Kadlec (Team Lead), Donna Adkins, Jim Bowdish, Barbara Carew, Brian Short and Meredith McGill.

Application deadline is Friday, June 16. Approved grants will be announced by August 1, with funds disbursed by September 1 (or as needed thereafter).

Grant applications as well as policy guidelines are located in the church office and online at www.carypresbyterian.org.
