CPCBA IS GETTING A NEW LOOK!
For nearly a year, the CPCBA Communications Team and Pastor Donna have been working to develop a new church logo. Recently, the team presented its top pick to Session, who enthusiastically approved it! Come to Fellowship Hall on Sunday, September 10 at 10:00 AM to worship and to see the new logo, to hear how and why it was developed, and to celebrate. There will even be something special to take home, so don’t miss it! After worship, stay for Fellowship and a “Faith Fair”, so you can find a way to put your faith in ac-tion this next year
