Be SMART: April 29, 7:00 p.m.

April 29 at 7:00 pm a program called “Be SMART” will be presented by speakers from Moms Demand Action.

This group does not object to the Second Amendment but believes common-sense solutions can help decrease the escalating epidemic of gun violence. The Be SMART campaign asks parents and all responsible adults to prevent these tragedies by following five simple steps.

Both gun owners and those who don't own guns will find this a compelling and informational program. CPC members and friends are invited to this upcoming event sponsored by CPC’s Social Justice Ministry.

The program will be held at CPC, is free of charge, and open to the public. There will be time following the presentation for a question and answer session. Duration is approximately one hour plus time for Q&A. Childcare will be provided for this program.

The Memorials & Endowment Committee Announces its Grant Cycle for 2018 Application

Deadline is June 18, 2018

Is there a mission or faith-based activity you are passionate about, but it is not yet sponsored through the CPC budget? If so, a grant issued by the Memorials & Endowment Team is a great way to obtain capital needed to foster such a project.

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

The grants are one-time, non-recurring gifts and are not intended to replace existing budgets or support ongoing projects. Any CPC member may apply.

Some examples of past grants are: Stop Hunger Now, Prayer Shawl Ministry, Fair Trade Coffee, Guatemala projects, Bridge to Life Ministry, Children in Worship, Be the Hands, Indoor Labyrinth, and many more…

Not sure if a certain initiative falls within the parameters of the grant guidelines? Please contact one of the committee members with this or any other questions regarding the application process. The committee members are Donna Adkins, Barbara Carew, Jeff Clark, Barbara Nelson and Brian Short – team lead.

The application deadline is close of business Monday June 18 and 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.
