Back to School Outreach Project
Women’s ministry conducts an annual Back to School Outreach project. School supplies are collected the entire month of July. The donated items are placed in the designated boxes around the church. The school supplies are then given to benefit needy children in Sumner County with a focus on the Shalom zone summer day camp in Gallatin and the SOS backpack ministry. In addition, school supplies are also sent to areas of the US and other countries which have been devastated by natural disasters. Supplies collected are: crayons, colored pencils, washable markers, pencils, pens, glue, scissors, rulers, spiral notebooks, folders, notebook paper, plastic school boxes, erasers, and dry erase markers.

The Homebound Ministry is for our members and sometimes family members of our members, most of whom have been faithful to our church, and for one reason or another are unable to attend. We need volunteers to help with phone calls, sending cards, and even a visit now and then.

Pray for our Police Department
Roll call for the three shifts of the Hendersonville Police Department takes place at 6:30 AM, 2:30 PM. And 10:30 PM. The police chief has allowed us to meet with the officers that would like to do so 15 minutes prior to roll call to simply pray for their safety on that particular shift.
Team Leader: Cary Massey
Prayer Room Ministry
This is an ongoing ministry opportunity. A powerful way to impact the Kingdom is to sign up for a weekly hour in the church-wide Prayer Ministry. There is a room dedicated for prayer intercessors to pray for requests around the world. You will soon put your own trials behind you as you begin praying for those who are physically ill, in personal distress, those who have lost love ones, our military, missionaries around the globe, local church ministries, etc. There is an easy systematic method for praying through this variety of needs. Attending a quick orientation will prepare you fully. We ask that you select an available hour and you come to the prayer room each week during that hour to receive incoming prayer calls, pray through requests, and write prayer grams to anyone God places on your heart.
Team Leader: Amy Elrod
This is a service weekend for Women’s Small Groups. Project IF is a part of the Women’s Ministry IF Gatherings. The goal is to serve and minister to various groups and people in need throughout the community. Groups clean shut-ins’ homes, share meals with Single Moms, make blankets and shower baby gifts and love on the mothers of CPC, take “Thank-You” meals and goodies to Police and Fire Stations, provide a meal and fun activities for widows, etc. Being the hands and feet of Jesus doing service projects and outreach all around town and the county will make a difference in the lives of many.
